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.

OMG! I CAN"T BELIEVE IT"S ALMOST APRIL AND...

I haven't posted since January?!?!?!

That's hard to believe!!  February just flew by way too fast, I guess.  Let's see if I can recall a little bit of what went on in February.

We had the most AWESOME visit with our very good and dear friends, Bob and Helen.  They brought their daughter, Cara, and their two grandchildren, Abby (Cara's daughter) and Nicholas.  They came during the second week of Carnival, and stayed until Lundi Gras.  The visit included a trip to the Global Wildlife Center in Folsom, and the Honey Island Swamp Tour, near Slidell.  The kids and adults thoroughly enjoyed both!!

At the end of February I had "rooster comb" injections in both of my knees to replace the lubricating fluid that has apparently been lost over the years.  3 sets of 2oz. shots in each knee, one week apart.  Loads of fun.

At the same time, Linda had her leg checked because it has been causing her much discomfort for awhile now, and ended up having arthrosopic surgery for a torn meniscus in her knee.  The surgery went well, and she's home now recovering.


Linda and I are both on the "Bouari" diet.  It seems to be working, but takes a lot of dedication.  Any diet is difficult here in Southeast Louisiana because of all the wonderful fried seafood and other cuisine that is available.  This diet bans all dairy, grains, yellow vegetables.  It seems to work as advertised until I start cheating!  Then I have to regroup, refocus, and get back on the diet wagon again!  I have a LONG way to go! Wish me luck.

I think we're going to get a gazebo for the back yard.  Linda has been wanting one for a couple of years now, and this year she seems really set on getting one, so maybe I'll have some gazebo assembly antics to write about in the near future... stay tuned!!

 Last weekend we went to City Park for our granddaughter Bridget's birthday party.  Her birthday fell right in the middle of Carnival this year, so the party was postponed until after.  It was a mustache themed party, all girls, and it was actually a lot of fun for them!
