The local newspaper called and interviewed me yesterday after someone there found my blog. One of the questions I was asked was, "Will you return?" I told her that, of course, we will return and the sooner the better.
We have gone to New Orleans in an ice storm (much to my mother's chagrin), one day after a near-miss by a hurricane and in the face of looming job and family responsibilities. However, we always kept the faith and have never canceled a trip. We shall return.
Our next trip is planned for March and, by God, we'll be there. We shall do our part by spending tons of money, eating obscene amounts of food and drinking inappropriate amounts of liquor. It's our duty and we shall endeavor to restore the economy of New Orleans to the best of our cumulative abilities.
