Some of the snapshots from the 1970s and 1980s just aren’t that clear and ‘good.’ Camera technology has come a long way (and maybe the lady behind the camera has learned a thing or two).
The New Orleans memories are good memories.
Jazz at Pat O’Briens (remember one evening when Al Hirt played – ohyes!).
The Sonesta Hotel.
A Streetcar Named Desire.
Beignets at Cafe du Monde
Strolling Jackson Square
Touring some of the old homes in the Garden District
Visiting the beautiful home of Lindy Boggs in the French Quarter
Breakfast at Brennan’s (is that restaurant still in New Orleans?)
The delicious delicious meals at Antoine’s . . . and The Commander’s Palace . . . and anywhere at all in New Orleans
AND MUCH MUCH MORE . . . and NOW – the Saints won the Super Bowl (I’m sure everyone already knows that!).
Would love to be in New Orleans in March for the 24th Annual Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival!
[Family trivia; Thomas Lanier “Tennessee” Williams and I descend from the same Welsh John Williams – not that anyone cares for such trivia – but it interests me . . .]
Ah – New Orleans Memories – brought to the fore as I sort and organize the tons of scattered photographs I’ve carelessly stored . . .
