Happy Mardi Gras, Dawlin'.

The weather was gorgeous, and so am I.

This is Gabi, a Snug Harbor manager.

Cruella and one of her pups.

??? Just having some fun.

I worked Mardi Gras day. Frenchman St. was crowded, but it's a different crowd than what is a few blocks down in the French Quarter.

Next year, I may get out of Dodge for the holidays. That would be a first.

There goes my baby

Aaron got his driver's license last week. Today is the first time he is taking my car out on the road - alone. He's driving to his girlfriend's house - saving us the hour and ten minute drive round trip, twice, for his weekly visit.

I am so relieved to not have to cart him out to the country, and harbor dreams of sending him for groceries, or to pick up and drop his sister places she needs to go, and other excursions that I can't avoid but try to.

I would cry about this milestone since it is more steps into independence from his Ma-ma, but it is all in order. Happy trails, my son.
