NOLA Bound

This is it folks, I'm headed to New Orleans today.

The girls will be spending some time with my mother.

Voodoo the cat will be boarded at the vet's and both dogs have an appointment with the surgeon to remove a couple of "tatoes" each. Ha! As my buddy Sam told me on the phone not long ago, that's not "fixing" a dog, that's "breaking" 'em.

Here's a list of the outlaws with whom I'll be hanging this weekend:

Sam and the lovely Babie
Kim and his brother
Denny and his guitar
New friend and NOLA blogger, Karen
My best friend Susan

I've heard a rumor this nefarious dude may show.

Marcus expressed an interest at one point, as did Elisson.

I hope they surprise us.

In addition, these guys will be with us in spirit, as well as on the phone: Kate, Pammy, Eric, Dax, and da Godfaddah. Ring, ring, guys, ring, ring!!

If this handsome fellow would send me his number, I'd be happy to call him, too! I know I am not the only one who would love to speak with him. Right, Key and Sam?

Now, the plan is for me to have wi-fi in the hotel room so I can post the Final Take Two Showcase on Friday, as well as report on Saturday's 25 Word Challenge hosted by the lovely Lippy of Wired JAFA.

If (faint) I don't have wi-fi in the room, I'm going to put my hound dog Zonker on it and will score a connection somewhere, somehow. In Jeckyll, he was fully prepared, with "leash" in hand, to walk the connection back to our rooms; however, I will let him 'splain, if he is so inclined.

Be safe on your trip!

And if you don't have any wi-fi in the room, there is a little cafe on Royal (and I want to say Conti) that has internet access, and I believe it's for free.

Just FYI.

Enjoy, y'all. I will be there in spirit if not in body. Heh.

And watch out for them Sazeracs. Do some damage, they can.

Have a safe and fun trip!

Have fun y'all. See? I can do a Southern accent. Um, yeah. Stay safe and can't wait to hear what happened. Feel free to embellish wildly ;-)
