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.

Mardi Gras Mambo

We have moved in with the parishioners from Holy Spirit.  The husband met us Friday morning where we explained the latest turn of events.  He had some initial misgivings about Maynard, but their dog, Lady, and Maynard took an almost immediate liking to each other and were soon running around the house like the best of friends.  They are such wonderful people!  They travel twice a year to Africa, to Sierra Leone, to operate an eye clinic for the people there.  Truly they are examples of what Christian love is all about!

Now we are in New Orleans for the weekend.  It was my weekend to preach at all the Masses.  Sunday afternoon the kids and Linda all went to Bacchus and Endymion parades.  It is now 11PM and still no sign of them!  They’ve got to be worn out!

Last Thursday our friends Mickey and Beverly passed through Memphis on their way to Illinois.  They spent the night at the La Quinta just down the hall from us, and we had a very nice dinner together at Macaroni Grill, followed by a quiet cup of Starbuck’s coffee back at the hotel.  It is always a joy to see them!  They will be passing through again Monday night on their way home, so we look forward to another wonderful evening together.

I’d better get back to packing.  Take care and God bless you!
