I wandered over here by way of a comment on Lilly's blog. Great pic. I hope no one got hurt, but I'm glad it's baseball season.

You have a cool blog. My middle son is a freshman in college in New Orleans. I've visited five times in the last year. It's an amazing city.

Glad you stopped by, Sophmom. Let me know if your son needs me to bring him anything. I'm always looking for any excuse to go back. I've only been once this year and it's already April. I'm slipping.

sophmom said...

Thanks for the invite. I'll let you know if I think of anything he might need!

I have serious blog envy, btw. Why the two ways to comment?

I'd like to see this same picture .3 seconds later.

Funny that you make a post about the Pope and he dies two days later. I made a post about Terri Schiavo and she died the next day.

Holy shit! I found me a Vonnegut reader. Best book ever written (besides "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by the late Hunter S.) was Kurt's "Breakfast of Champions." (I call him "Kurt" because he and I are old buddies. I think.) BTW, send your 14-year-old. I one short in the altar boys category.

That is the funniest pic I've seen in a long time. Look at those faces!

Thank you for the giggle.

Sophmom - I have two ways to comment because some people have trouble with the Blogger comments. However if you add Haloscan comments alone, your old Blogger comments go away and I didn't want to lose them. Ergo, two ways to comment.

Dr. Sauce - Definitely voodoo. Bad voodoo. We're probably not only cousins but evil as well.

Old Horse Snake - I love Vonnegut after very recently reading only 2 of his books. I'll read Breakfast of Champions next.

Sleepybomb - Who knows? Someone might have Photoshopped the pic but either way, I thought it was hilarious.

Clublint - You're quite welcome.

Hmmm... I have no idea if anyone is still reading these, but, what the heck:

Sleepybomb, it looks to me like that bat is broken at the handle. The other piece probably went flying in a different direction (and thanks for the invitation;).

I get it now, MissNO, and I still have blog envy. :) I particularly like the Bourbocam link in your gutter. During Mardi Gras I compulsively scanned both the Bourbocam and the Paradecam looking for my moppy-headed boy (for signs that he was still standing). He survived the time of his life, but I never got a good glimpse of him.

Laurie said...

Sophmom - It's probably a good thing for both you and your son that you didn't spot him on the Bourbocam. My son and daughter-in-law both go with me now on my New Orleans trips. He was only 14 when I first started going. Time flies.
