This picture was taken in the summer of '92 when my friend Gayle & I went to New Orleans. We had a total blast. We drank everclear (aka death) and ate in some wonderful restaurants, went to Tippitinas and visited my friend Tom who lived on a boat on Lake Ponchatrain. Of course it was mega-hot, like 90 degrees at night but that didn't stop us from having an amazing time. Having such great memories of this beautiful city, and the lovely people we met, it's with true horror and sadness to watch what is going on down there right now and to think of what is to come. My heart is breaking for this grand old city and it's people.
