  1. I’ve never been to New Orleans. Looks like a fun place.

    Boy that brings back some memories, Adam! Thanks.
    Did ya go see everyone’s friend Pat O’Brien? LOL
    Did you fly from Houston or drive? If you drove, you were within about 200 yards from my house.
    Sylvia, It’ll give you a real jazzed up feeling, LOL! I haven’t been there in a long time, but I do think everyone should experience it at least once. Port O’Call, beignets at Cafe’ du Monde, cafe’ a lait.
    “Jambalya, crawfish pie-a mi o my oh.”
    Lots of walking.

  3. Great Stuff.

    …’course my memories are likely rather idealized at this point.


    Apparently, the belief that beignets need be experienced at least once in a lifetime is held by others that you:

    click on shops to see all the locations, but the one I’d hit is in Toukyou’s Ikebukuro just out the West Exit of the station. It’s pretty darn popular. Now we just have to figure out how to get the street band…the Quarter…the MardiParty…

    ((big grin))

  4. So far New Orleans food hasn’t made it north to Cincinnati. The exception is my friend who is originally from there (and Rayne). She has made some New Orleans food for us using roux.

  5. cheryljones Says:

    Well look at that, LDG! Never in a million years would I have thought Cafe’ du Monde was anywhere but N’awlins.
    That’s how you say it if you’re a native, you know. Never ever New Or-leeens!
    Sylvia, you can say it that way and surprise your friend, LOL
    I knew what Cafe’ du Monde means, but somehow just thought it was a local thing. *Sigh* Shows what I know.
    She cooked gumbo for you, Sylvia? Did you like it? Was there okra in it? ‘Cause ‘gumbo’ means ‘okra’, ma cher.

  6. Cheryl,

    It was gumbo without any pork. It did have okra in it and was good.

  7. Adam Housley Says:

    LDG- And the crawfish. Just sayin. We actually have a couple of good Cajun places here in LA….not the Nawlins kind…but not so bad. AND….Cheryl….it gotcha and I love Nawlins. πŸ™‚

  8. @Adam Housley

    You say true. Gotta have some crawdads.
    ((looks about for the Zartarain’s))

  9. cheryljones Says:

    Oh, gross! I just can’t do the boiled crawfish thingy. Love the jambalaya but sucking those critters? Not even the corn and potatoes. And they’re all over the place around here. Hubby does it. I don’t.
    Rapid change of subject to get that picture out of my brain:
    Have ya’ll seen this video with the hay and the oil?

  10. Cheryl,

    That video was really interesting. Sounds like a good idea to me.

  11. cheryljones Says:

    Me too! And what have we got to lose, hm?

  12. cheryljones Says:

    Families to Killer β€œGo straight to Hell”
    Oh, Adam, how hard that must have been to watch. Your report sent chills through me. Step…by step…by step, you took us through it. Thank you. And may their God bless them, the friends and families of Chelsea and Amber. Amen.
    But I do wish the judge had ordered him to raise his **** head and made him look at those who had the courage and the righteousness to speak.
    Did you ever get a copy of Chelsea’s father’s words?

  13. Crawfish, look tasty, is it like lobster?

    Adam, good report on the court case, should have been an execution though. I’m sure you don’t want your tax money paying for him.

  14. Adam Housley Says:

    Cheryl- It wasn’t fun that’s for sure and it was tough when the videos played of the girls. I can’t even imagine what their families are going through right now.

    Max- Crawfish is like a little lobster. A lot of work, but very good if cooked right. AND…I did see an execution. Remember…I think it was part of the old blog.

    Hope everyone has a good start to their weekend!


  15. Adam,
    I could not stand to see any videos of abused children. My heart goes out to the families of these kids. As for watching an execution, I don’t know how that would affect me. I hate the monsters who abuse and/or kill, but watching an execution could be tough.

  16. Great video Adam………………I’ve been to The Big Easy twice. Had such a good time that I can’t remember a damned thing about both trips.

    Sorry that I’ve been MIA for a while, but we had our annual ‘ End of the Winter ‘ Outer Banks (NC) Mothers Days Beer and ( whatever else you want to drink ) Fest. Only rules are, on Mothers Day we pamper the Moms in the group………….after that, it’s each man and woman for themselves. Only other rules are……….no News TV (except for the Weather Channel), no cell phones and no computers. You should try it sometime………….it’s like those real vacations we used to take when we were kids.
    Speaking of kids, that’s the only other rule……… kids under 18 allowed. Our beach house drinking age is 18 because we still believe that if you are old enough to vote and volunteer to put your life on the line for your country……………..your old enough to drink yourself into oblivion, if that’s your choice. LOL

    Like I said, great video…………..but my all time favorite street music vid has got to be this short number. It’s been posted here before, but it’s worth a re-post………IMO.

  17. John,
    You need to post here more often. Your humor is priceless!

  18. cheryljones Says:
    Speaking of music…:)
    And it’s not only the song sung by these little 3rd graders, it’s the pictures.
    Please remember that May 31 is Memorial Day, and fly your flag proudly if you don’t already.

  19. We fly the flag proudly. And of course we are so grateful for the military both past and present.

  20. cheryljones Says:

    Hi, Sylvia! We fly ours proudly, too.

  21. Adam, I meant his punishment. I didn’t forget about you witnessing one, but i forgot the guy’s name.

    Are crawfish a lot cheaper than lobster?

  22. Happy Weekend everyone……………And keeping on subject of the thread, here’s some good ‘weekend cruising’ music. Remember these guys?…………

  23. Whoops, seems like YouTube doesn’t like to have it copied. But, if you click on any of the screens on the bottom of the video you can hear some pleasant good ‘ole music……………those were happier ands less worrisome days.

  24. Or you can click on ” Watch on YouTube ” and allow for the popup to play the vid.

    Damned lot of trouble just to say ‘ have a great weekend ‘, isn’t it?…….lol

  25. doggies all over Says:

    LOL, John. We appreciate the effort.
    Requiem for “Lost” tonight.
    Max, Crawfish 101:
    Crawfish (or crayfish, depending on where you are) are a LOT smaller than lobster.
    To eat, you buy them by the pound, usually starting out with about 3 pounds. They range from about 4-6″ long. They’re cooked with small red potatoes and corn on the cob. Very very very spicy! And very very very little bit for the bite. Actually, you suck them.
    They are a heck of a lot of trouble to cook. First they must be purged in salt water;only then do you boil them. (They turn bright red, just like any crustacean).
    Oh-and they’re a heck of a lot of trouble to eat, too. First, you get a whole roll of paper towels…LOL
    Does this help?

  26. doggies all over Says:

    Oh-forgot to tell you they’re also called ‘mudbugs’, mon cher. That’s where they live. We have crawfish farms all over down here. It’s mudbug season!
    C’mon down.

  27. Cheryl,
    I will never eat crawfish, crayfish, or mudbugs….whatever you call them they sound disgusting! I’ll stick to seafood that seems more normal for this midwestern gal.

  28. doggies all over Says:

    Pssst, Sylvia-I don’t blame you. Just didn’t want to taint Max’s mind before he gets a chance to try them. Bless his heart, he asked about them days ago. I kept thinking someone else would answer him, but finally had to do it myself. πŸ™‚
    After all, I guess I’m the one who lives the closest to the Bayou State. Cajun food!

  29. They don’t sound too bad, i’ll try them one day.

  30. doggies all over Says:

    Hi, Max! Glad you saw the message.. I kept waiting and waiting for someone else to answer you, since I’m not an expert by any means. Then I realized that for sheer proximity to the mudbug capitol, I could give it a go. Rots o’ Ruck. πŸ™‚

  31. Max is adventurous. He’ll eat anything. Right Max?

  32. doggies all over Says:

    Adam, my condolences on the loss of your friend Jose’ Lima. He was so very young! Such a terrible loss.

  33. Adam Housley Says:

    Doggies and everyone-

    Thans so much for your thoughts. Very weird to think of him as now being gone. I hadn’t seen him in a few years, but he had recently moved back here to LA and I was looking forward to catching up.


  34. Adam Housley Says:

    also….MAX!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you find Susan, John and the Marine!? LOL

  35. Sylvia, yes i will

    Adam, do you mean retread? Never emailed him or John

    Susan is still on facebook, think she is scared you are mad at her, send her a comment πŸ™‚
