  • Good-bye 2021

    In 2021, I lost my father, making my siblings and me, orphans. Adults, yes, but orphans, nonetheless. After my mom died in 2019, I knew that sooner, rather than later, we would be also burying my father. In some ways, I was surprised, but in some ways, not. I was very fortunate that I was…

  • Merry Covid Christmas to Us. Blogmas 12/25/21

    Well heck. We did everything right, all of us have had three doses of the vaccine, wear masks in public and at work, and we still got Covid. More than likely, I brought it home from school. I would have assumed that I had allergies had I not tested when Joel started feeing bad. Sure…

  • Blogmas Day 3. A Foggy Start

    This morning I woke up to a rather foggy morning here in Florida. The closer I got to the river, the thicker the fog got. This above photo was taken on campus about 6:15 this morning. Yes, I was already at work. I needed to get a head start today. Anyway, our TSA kiddos came…

  • Random thoughts on a Sunday (NaBloPoMo Day 6)

    1)Sometimes I have too much to do and then I freeze and procrastinate and then panic to get everything done. I think maybe it has something to do with working under a deadline for so many years. 2) I used to hold my tongue and not speak up when I thought people were being ridiculous. …

  • I left my heart in Louisiana

    Thirteen years ago, my husbnad took a job in Florida and uprooted me from everything that I had known for the first thirty years of my life.

    Champagne’s Swamp Tours, Road Trip Day 4.

        We decided that our swamp tour would be the last thing on our scheduled trip through South Louisiana and after looking a brochures and looking at Yelp and TripAdvisor, we settled on Champagne’s Swamp Tours in Breaux Bridge. Breaux Bridge is a quick twenty-minute drive from Lafayette. My mom wasn’t into the airboat…

  • Louisiana Road Trip Day 3.

    Louisiana Road Trip Day 3.

    We headed out of New Orleans on Friday, but before we left, I snapped this guy jamming out and DJing  his own concert. He was having a great time! Headed out of the city, you can see the Super Dome peeping out from behind the building.   After we left New Orleans, we headed toward…

  • NOLA, Day 2 Part 3

    NOLA, Day 2 Part 3

    One of the things that New Orleans is known for is music. Music can be found at any time of the day around the city. If you want to listen to great music, just walk around the French Quarter and will not be disappointed.  As we were walking through Jackson Square, we came across this…
