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.

HOLA!! from Del Rio, TX

Linda and I made it to Del Rio yesterday. We left NOLA at 8:30, after dropping Ian at school and running to Manny Randazzo's in Metarie for a king cake. We were getting back into the car at Randazzo's when we decided we could buy another small king cake, cut a couple of slices for ourselves and bring a taste of "real New Orleans Mardi Gras" to H1/DIL1. So, back into the store for another purchase!

We got to H-town around 2:30 and stopped by DIL1's place of employment to drop off the cake. It was great to see her, wish we could have seen H1,also, but Sunday will have to do. We plan to stop for lunch on the way home.

We arrived in Del Rio at about 8:15PM. TomTom took us right to the LaQuinta where we are staying (we didn't want to impose ourselves on H2GF's parents, who had not yet met us). We called H2GF to let her know we were in, and that we would have dinner with her. The plan was to have her meet us at some local eatery. Apparently I didn't express myself well, because a little while later she called back to say her mother was home and had cooked dinner for us! She had told her mom that we wanted to come over for dinner!! Aaaaggghhhhhh!!!!!! It was a pretty incredible dinner, I have to say!! Absolutely delicious Mexican food! I was in "hog HEAVEN"!

Linda and I are about to leave to go back to the house for a late breakfast. Then it's off to see the sights of Del Rio. Not yet sure when we'll be going to Mexico, but our passports ARE in hand!

More later. Love to all!
