Random thoughts...

... quick one, too much to do.

I had nice visits with two aunts and a cousin in Cajun Land Jeudi. I had to laugh at my cousin telling a story in her thick french accent. She described this weird family she knows who speaks in this "down the bayou" accent! ***ROFS&Y!!*** My relatives think they don't speak with an accent. Next time I'll have to ask how she'd describe MY accent.

My aunts are way up there in age but I love to bring out the "little girls" in them by asking them little questions about when they were kids. Too funny! Maybe I'll share some later. I must get a digital camera sometime so I can include an occasional shot of the places I grew up around.

Yesterday was Poe's birthday (thanks to el_jefe59) and I am looking for a short Poe-inspired poem I wrote at 17 about my own "Lenore." I'll put it here if I'm not TOO embarrassed.

We're expecting more rain, maybe heavy, over the next few days. I'm still a physical wreck, but thankfully my mind remains relatively intact (LOL). I'm sure you all appreciate that!!! A nice feline type with sharp claws would probably give me a lift. Oh where oh where can Miss Dubrovna be on these gray and rainy days?

Good Day
Your Aunts sound Fabulous!! I would probably sit and listen to them the whole day through. I love to spend time with older people and listen to their childhood stories. They are beyond interesting.

Oh and I am sure if you look about enough you will find that tigress you are lookin for.

Jeffy posts some of the most interesting things sometimes. I love Poe.

So how goes the house, even with not physically feeling well?

Re: Good Day
Yes, hearing those stories is so much fun and it's cute watching their faces and hearing them giggle as it takes them back.

The house repairs are on hold because the weather isn't cooperating very much, more the rain than the cold. We can have very mild days, even in january, but any rain for me is a disaster. I just have to take it as it comes.

I'm always looking foward to new photos... *HINT-HINT* ^_^

That's really cool about Poe's birthday... I wrote a creepy little poem in 7th grade that was pretty good back then, but it's probably bunk now... It was about an old woman dying alone... one of my biggest fears, really...

April, you are so morbid... LOL

If you can pull out those poems, sometime, see if you can work on them again, add your new emotions or insights to them. You have to look at them as the product of who you were then, and there's nothing wrong with being a little 7th Grade poet.

Imagine you'd found something your mother or best friend or niece had written in grade school, and you'll see how precious it would be.

That's a great way to put it... Thanks - that makes me feel a little better... *lol*

I know where most of my old work is, but I'm not sure I still have that one... I will look, though...

Predatory, huh? Watch out New Orleans! Is there a moon over Burbon street tonight? (Ugh, sorry, just couldn't resist.) *g*

I think the women of New Orleans are safe for the time being. ***LOL***

I just read that poem and I thought it was very good indeed.

Ah, I do miss hearing authentic cajun accents. There's a place here that has cajun food and will let you know how it is.

Thanks, Crystal...

I hope it's not one of those places that sell GEN-U-INE NEW ORLEANS STYLE CAJUN FOOD! You know what I mean. LOL Are the owners Louisiana transplants?

Btw, I fixed a batch of that Zatarin's Pastalaya with Sausage and it wasn't bad. I still like it better from scratch. Hey, you could probably whip up some far better Cajun dishes yourself, you know. First you make a roux...
