With the ever worse news out of the Gulf, all that has to be accomplished here before going there, i.e. C'town. I find myself wishing we were there already -- so tired am I have of my neighborhoods in which you can't walk anywhere anymore because of the density of out-of-towners, out-of-neighborhooders, tourists, etc. It's just farkin' miserable. I have these fantasies of this small, picturesque town, with so few people around, if only because it is a car culture and nobody walks. While, I, on the other hand, living so close to the river, can walk there easily whenever I want to.
AND, far more cheering, on my other tail -- it is certain, as far as these things can be, that M and her daughter are arriving at JFK tomorrow!
Do not forget, it's not only the Louis Armstrong festival in New Orleans, but the second celebration of Pops' birthday starts at midnight, edst here on the east coast, on WKCR Radio out of Columbia University.
