Greetings from New Orleans!
Joe and I have been talking about a trip to the Crescent City since the late 1990s or very early 2000s. Then Katrina happened and we delayed our plans for a bit, and then life happened and we just kept going to other places. But finally…FINALLY…we are here and having a marvelous time!
One thing that’s always fascinated me about New Orleans are the parades they have in the French Quarter, and Joe discovered during our planning that just about anyone can have a second line parade, if they want. So we’ve decided to have one…just because we can! (which, we understand from one of Joe’s friends, is just good of a reason to have a second line parade as any other LOL!) Life is about experiences and you only live once, so why the heck not, right??? It’ll be Joe and I, plus a bunch of friends coming in from as far away as Florida and the U.K., and as close as New Orleans, plus whoever else joins us along the way!
SO…if you’re going to be in New Orleans on Friday, October 5th at 6pm Eastern, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the details…you’re more than welcome to join us!
Or if you’re not in New Orleans and you’d like to see the parade from our POV, just tune in to our Fan Page on Facebook at 6pm Central (7pm Eastern, 5pm Mountain, 4pm Pacific, midnight GMT), and we’re going to do our best to do a Facebook Live event of it!
See y’all there!
