Let the good times roll

Many are called but fewer chose to go, to paraphrase the good book. The rest of us are unable to be in New Orleans for Mardi Gras this year, and must celebrate closer to home. Should you be one of we unfortunates, I recommend you seek out a copy of Doctors, Professors, Kings and Queens the Big Ol' Box of New Orleans a 4 disc CD set compiled by one time New Orleans radio station WWOZ radio host Chuck Taggart. At least you'll be set for next year.

The liner notes says, "It's like taking a walk through the length and breadth of the New Orleans Music scene." Perfect for your own Mardi Gras celebrations, Sunday brunch or for just listening on the hammock on a hot summer evening.

I didn't find it at the Itunes store but Amazon has several used copies. Occasionally, copies turn up on EBAY too.

If you are fortunate enough to find yourself in NOLA today have a Hurricane for me. I need one verily.

I will not be in NO either, nor will I have a hurricane. However I shall be sipping a 15 year old single malt scotch in your honor. I would love to have you join me the next time you are in town.

Been there, had a Hurricane, don't remember much after that.

Barbara you're slipping. You used to be able to get through a hurricane and a half before forgetting everything.

OP you're on.
