Revisiting America

Bye for Hi!
We're back! Technical difficulties. They usually don't last a week, but with us? Thanks to granddaughter Caroline in D.C. we will continue our journey.
This has been a busy week but not quite sure how to report it since a good bit of the time has been spent making and confirming contacts.
Monday was a special daY though. We gave ourselves an early "birthday present( mine is in June, and Janie's in November)and took a taxi into N.O.and stepped out of the taxi right at the beginning of the Sugar Bowl Parade(New Orleans from here on out will be N.O.) Ate a wonderful lunch, again part of our present, saw a break-dancing group who had appeared on "America's Got Talent", strolled Bourbon Street, came home absolutely worn out.
Our next big event happened in the room as I was browning a roast to put in the crock pot to cook while we were out for the day. Phone began ringing, fifire alarm went off, the room filled with smoke, and while I'm on the phone with the desk clerk telling me to Not Open the Main Door, turn on the bathroom vent,open the windows, Janie is in a chair fanning, the smoke detector(we have a picture to prove it), we are both laughing so hard we can't stand up. My grandmdaughter Meagan had said the fire department came to these spartments at least twice a week, thank goodnes our episode didn't quite reach those proportions. We can't be evicted at this stage of the game.
Bye for now!


  1. There are so many people following this blog. I am so thankful to Caroline for getting the "bugs" worked out. The anticipation was killing me. I hope the two of you have a wonderful time at your cooking class tomorrow! Try not to involve the Kenner FD in your future endeavors! lol Please be safe and have fun!

  2. OH LOU and JANIE!!! I am still laughing at your cooking experience. Please don't get evicted before we get a chance to visit. Love you MUCH!!!

  3. Just one of many learning experiences as you begin your vagabond lives! Hope you'll now be able to post every 2 or 3 days. Several friends have commented about your first message! Love you, Jo Anne

  4. My friends who moved to Montana say you have an open invitation when you're up there. They are fun to be with and would be interesting for you to meet. They hike a lot and do many cultural things, in addition to volunteering at the local elementary school.
