thank you very much for your well wishes. You are the greatest :-) I’m feeling a bit better than yesterday, however still far from being OK, but the meds keep me on my feet. To brighten up my spirits I thought I’ll search for a fun movie to watch online while hunting and I came across one of my all time favorites: The Big Easy from 1987 with Ellen Barkin and Dennis Quaid as the young and sexy detective Remy McSwain. It’s a great thriller, but I like best that the atmosphere of New Orleans is basically oozing out of every frame. You really get the feel of the city, at least how it was pre-Katrina. I don’t know if that still applies as I haven’t been back since Katrina hit. But watching that movie sure makes me homesick. When I hear his mama speak aka actress Grace Zabriskie it makes my heart yearn. I miss Nawlins, the where y’at?, the beignets at Café du Monde, the old houses, walks through the Garden district and along the levee, the rumbling old street cars, the pink sky in the evening that takes your breath away, the rich blooming gardens, the heat, heck I even miss the humidity. If I had the money, I would probably be booking airline tickets right now. So, be happy that I don’t have any money and am freebie hunting instead ;-)
Thanks again for your comments.
