Flat Patty spent the day checking out New Orleans on Friday with Cheryl….
She heads to Atlanta next Wednesday for Patty’s DRIVE4COPD Show next Thursday and then off Missouri and Texas – busy schedule ahead : )
Flat Patty and Cheryl finally got to play tourist around New Orleans. They started with a walk in the French Quarter and ended up at a place that plays VooDoo blues. Seems like “The Color Of The Blues” is red in VooDoo land. Flat Patty is learning some “Wicked Ways” Yikes, I know she has already put a spell on us all.
Flat Patty went into the casino and found a hex breaker in case anyone wants to be released from her spell. I don’t!
Flat Patty ran into the Gambler. She placed a few bets and actually won some money. The Gambler made a pass at Flat Patty but she told him, “I Won’t Gamble With Your Love”
so, Flat Patty simply turned and walked away….
Flat Patty and Cheryl were getting hungry by now. They passed Central Grocery which is the home of the muffuletta but decided on some seafood instead, so they went to Deanie’s…
No, not that Deanie’s..Deanie’s seafood in New Orleans. The best seafood in town.
Flat Patty arrived a bit too early for lunch, so they killed some time next door and checked out some of the favorite local food.
We ordered a Corona while we waited for lunch. And yes, it was cold against her hand.
The seafood platter was placed on the table. Flat Patty said I “Can’t Get Enough”! Cheryl had to tell Flatt Patty that “You Don’t Get No More” cause “After All” you can’t eat all that.
What’s a visit to New Orleans without a cemetary tour. Flat Patty visited the memorial tomb of the Confederate soldiers.
The Confederate memorial tomb holds 600 “Old Souls” who were never identified. Flat Patty stood and reflected on these “Old Souls”
Flat Patty also saw a “Sorrowful Angel” praying for her loved ones.
Flat Patty couldn’t believe it when she saw a new dug grave with a spade lying by in the cemetary.
(It was really perpetual care being done on the gravesite) I didn’t dig up a grave.
And where else but in New Orleans will you find a tomb adorned with Mardi Gras beads. Flat Patty said “Someday I Will Lead The Parade” for Mardi Gras in New Orleans! Cheryl hopes so…..
