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.

IT'S A NICE DAY FOR A WHITE WEDDING

Just a quick update... Linda and I left NOLA on Thursday after work and drove to Memphis where we spent the night at the LaQuinta we had stayed at after Katrina. Friday we drove to Toledo, Ohio to attend our niece's wedding. Saturday was the wedding. It was a beautiful drive up, and Saturday was sunny and cool, with temps in the upper 60s for the wedding, which was held outdoors in a park. It was lovely. The bride was beautiful and glowing, the husband handsome and sharp in his tux. The reception following was great. The food was outstanding, the music and DJ were entertaining and everyone had a great time.

It was really good to see my brother, 3 of 4 sisters, and nephews and nieces and spouses and grandnephew/niece at last or again!!

Sunday we drove north about 115 miles into Michigan, past Detroit, to a Renassaince Fair. It, too, was a blast, although the weather had turned chilly and drizzly. We still had a great time. Sunday night we wrapped up with dinner at the famous Tony Packo's restaurant in Toledo (made famous by Corporal Klinger (Jamie Farr) on M*A*S*H)

This morning we will breakfast with the clan, then 15 1/2 hours or so back to NOLA. What a weekend. We'll be tired, sore, but happy to be home!!

God Bless!!
