HBOs “Treme” May be Over but the Second Line lives on

January 5, 2014


I’ve been told that no one really watches Treme, David Simon’s original HBO series cataloguing the story of our beloved New Orleans in the three years following the bitch, Katrina (or “The Thing” as Chris Rose so aptly named it).  The plot lines are thick and run both parallel and perpendicular to each other, as things […]

Healthy Living

May 12, 2011


I’m really proud of our big kids.  They are all of a sudden making a real attempt to start living healthier.  As you read this post please keep in mind that we are a New Orleans family living on the Mississippi Coast.  Let’s not beat around the bush–we love live to eat.  We eat at […]

Unwelcome everywhere

May 5, 2011


Sorry I’ve been away.  I’ve been cleaning up.  When we last spoke our family was unwelcome at Denny’s (and Starbucks and the beach) because Scottie likes to puke when we go out.  No my kid doesn’t have a stomach virus, that’s my professional opinion.  He may have big tonsils, he may eat too fast, or […]

Unwelcome at Denny’s

Having four kids can change a man.  I remember when my first born, Georgia Rose, was only a few months old we had her out to dinner with one of Robin’s best friends.  Russell’s Marina Grill in Lakeview to be exact, damn good omelets….but that was before the storm.  Georgia was in her carrier and […]

Sins without women and our Father in Prison

April 27, 2011


It was Good Friday and I thought I would take the opportunity to remind my two older kids what the Easter Holiday was all about.  Georgia Rose has always been my little Holy one.  She knew all her prayers by the time she was 4 and loves to talk about God.  I even brought her […]

School Lunch, crabs, and casinos

April 12, 2011


This week I decided to have lunch with Georgia and R.J. at school, an event that was overdue. R.J.’s day was yesterday and I brought Scottie along with me.  R.J., being the gentle giant that he is was so happy to see us.  No shortage of hugs and kisses, a fact that I’m all too […]
