Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

Monday, November 14th

Rain. Drizzly, damp rain. And tornado watches. 50% chance of rain today yielded wet streets for the drive in, but dry the rest of the day. Tomorrow is supposed to be 90% chance, with strong thunderstorms. Then the temperature plummets to possibly 31° by Wednesday morning! This could prove to be a very interesting winter.

We've been craving some spicy chicken and biscuits for awhile now, and today we scratched that itch. We found a Popeye's restaurant close to the base and went there for lunch. M-m-m-m, good!! A taste of home. Just what the doctor ordered.

We're having our Thanksgiving lunch tomorrow at work. The group from NOLA chipped in to buy some cajun food from a new local restaurant opened by displaced Boudreaux's. I hope their food lives up to their name. Another taste of home. 2nd dose. I like this doctor!

Linda is sitting on the couch counting quarters. Is that exciting, or what? We never got around to doing laundry this weekend, so tonight we have to do at least one load, hence the counting of quarters. Hey, we could start a band. We could call it Counting Quarters! Or, Two Bits. Or, 4 MakeA Dollar. Or... but, I digress. Are we bored? Counting change is almost entertainment.

The boys may remember how Maynard used to play "rake". Well, now he plays "leash", and he plays it pretty good. It's just like rake, and he leaps into the air and grabs the leash in his mouth and then it's an all out tug-of-war. Then it's back to the room where we both sit and pant. Are we bored?

Actually we're not all that bored. Tonight is Surface, Las Vegas (Nikki Cox, Woo-Woo!!!) and Medium (doo-DOO-doo-doo). And, Gerald is here using the desktop to check his email. And, Big and Rich is coming to a casino here on January 7th. In case you don't know, they're the "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" guys. We saw them at Steel Pony last year.

OK. Enough rambling for one night. Take care. God bless.
