We had a great time in New Orleans visiting our daughter and are currently working our way through the first leg of our Appalachian trail. Right before we left I had mentioned that we would be accompanied by Lisette Lecat’s narration of Alexander McCall Smith‘s The Handsome Man’s De Luxe Café. Not so >>> instead we decided on having Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple unravel Mr. Rafiel’s cryptic message: Nemesis. Although both of us have read this Cozy Mystery before, as with all of Agatha Christie‘s work, we never tire of reading/hearing it again.
Coming from the arid plains of Texas, and the over-crowded I-10 route to New Orleans, we have both been enjoying the lush, green trees along the sides of I-59 through Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. Not to mention that so far I-59 has been a nostalgic throw-back to the days when the interstate highways were light on traffic. (Knock on wood!)
Back to New Orleans. We spent the weekend with our daughter. She took us to the World War II Museum (a place she had already visited) and I’m here to say: I know when people think of NOLA (New Orleans, LA) they think of Mardis Gras, food and drink, but the WW II Museum really should be a must-stop for any visitor, although I wouldn’t recommend it for little children.
My Mother’s Day included a Grey Line tour of the city with our daughter and a phone call from our son assuring me that all is well with our house.
On to D.C. tomorrow!
