ALL ABOUT LIFE BEYOND KINDERGARTEN! Kindergarten is the basic building block for all future learning. It is true that everything you need to know in life was really learned in Kindergarten. The trick is to remember what you learned when you were five or six. What you liked then will most likely be something you will like now. So be true to yourself and who you really are and who you will really be. Look back and you just may find your true self! Yes…this blog is about a variety of topics…because we are all a smorgasbord of thoughts and ideas.
In the last week or so, I wrote about my growing dislike for professional football. So sorry, pro football people, but I still feel the same way. Of course, I still have a good attitude about the New Orleans Saints. If the Saints let a player get away with actions that are criminal offenses for normal people…then they will be a very shaky commodity in my eyes.
St. Charles Avenue Streetcar, New Orleans
However, I can’t stay unhappy about the city of New Orleans for very long, if ever. St. Charles Avenue with the Garden District’s grand old houses…you call my name. The Audubon Zoo…youcall my name even though my times with you have been the hottest, most humid times in my life. Cafédu Monde…I have been covered from head to toe with powdered sugar from your beignets…you surely call my name.
Jackson Square, New Orleans
Jackson Square so like an outdoor art gallery with paintings even displayed on iron fences…you always call my name. The French Quarter with jazz music blaring from every direction, people walking every direction, decadence on Bourbon Street that you need to ignore, decorative balconies…ah!…you call my name. The Bourbon House Restaurant in the French Quarter with the freshest and best seafood dishes and I don’t really like seafood, plus we know about the parking garage…you call my name.
Sno-balls (better known as snow cones in other parts of the country) are very finely shaved ice topped off with sugary syrups…you call my name all summer long. The big Mississippi River with the Steamboat Natchez (even though the last time we rode on you, the fog stopped our voyage)…still, you call my name. The Camellia Grill with your white columned façade…you look like a pretty little house and your parking area is not so good…I don’t mindbecause you call my name.
The Camellia Grill, New Orleans
I am leaving out so many places in New Orleans. I just can’t go on and on…you will just have to go down and find your own places. Now, I have to watch the TCU game because college football REALLY IS MY FAVORITE SPORT and I have already seen LSU lose today. So sad for my relatives. Trust me…they take sports seriously down there!
