Remembering New Orleans…

We let the boys go out to play today and we stayed home. I took the time to figure how to get some photos off the phones.  While doing so I locked up my computer and a CD drive.  I finally got the job complete.

Some views from New Orleans:

New Orleans skyline and a Coast Guard Boat passing.  The boys were surprised when I told them Fred Alton used to do that here in NOLA, when he was a Coastie.

I have too many pictures to post, but I wanted to go back and post some, after downloading them from the  phone.

Thanks for riding with us.

It is not up into the summer yet, but I can understand why cowboys were burned brown tending the cows.

Looks like everybody is having
a fun time. Good to see the sights. Everyone talks about
New Orleans is an exciting place to
visit. Ron Reagan had a special
that was very interesting on Nawlins. Stay safe....

I enjoyed the pictures and they did bring back some fond memories for me too. I was able to see some of those sights a few years ago when we visited with one of my sons. It's good you got a little break to catch up.
