Well, during my visit, we went and bought tickets for the JazzFest first weekend. I bought a new pole for Kermit and made an appearance at the Metairie Rd. St Patrick's Day parade last sunday. Lots of good ideas for Kermit and potential outfits, but I am not sure I will do any of them. Kermit stands tall all by himself. And he will stand tall at JazzFest. Stop by and see me if you are out there. I may have a beer for you.
I grew up in Metairie, LA and lived in actual New Orleans for 12 years. The day that I turned 30, I moved to New Jersey and then to Easton, PA 4 years ago. As luck would have it, I was in New Orleans when Katrina approached and evacuated to Jackson, MS. Other than that, I am a Latin and history teacher at a small, independent school in NJ. I miss New Orleans a lot, think about it all the time, and try to go there whenever the work schedule allows.
