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.

I'm Dreaming of a White Mardi Gras

I’m back. What a DAY!! Today, at approximately 7PM Central Time marked the 38th year since Linda and I met. We met at a dance at a church in Seaford (Long Island), New York on February 10th, 1968. To celebrate we went (yes, again) to Texas de Brazil for steak, steak and MORE steak!! Sirloin strip, filet mignon with and without bacon, flank steak, chicken wrapped in bacon, shrimp cocktail and, a perfect end to a perfect dinner, crème-brulé.

But before that we had… SNOW!! Yes! SNOW!! Lot’s and lot’s of SNOW!! Finally the cold weather is almost worth it. Loads and loads of beautiful, white, fluffy, perfect for snowballs (as opposed to perfect for skiing) SNOW!

It started around 12:30PM and by 1:30 was snowing pretty heavily. We (Linda and I) left work early as the whole city and surrounding area began to shut down. The normal ½ hour drive home took almost 2 hours.

Enough words. Let the pictures speak for themselves!!!

The beginning of the "Unfinished Snowman".

Take care, and God bless!!

Hi, all. I just had to laugh when I heard about the snow in TN! I had just talked with Dean awhile ago about whether he could see coming back up north. He said no because of the snow!! :)
I love catching up on all your news. It makes me miss you all so much!
