I thought that I would share some of our photos of our Turkey Day trip to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and New Orleans with y'all.

Some of it is very lighthearted and typically Pirateesque -- bars, casinos, and general fun and mayhem.

And some of it is very, very dark. With the exception of the casinos in Mississippi, there appears to have been little in the way of reconstruction in the hurricane zones. Highways are still being rebuilt (and that's understandable, since these are big projects) but FEMA trailers are still the most popular form of habitation throughout many areas. Entire neighborhoods are still devastated. We need to keep those folks in our thoughts and FEMA in our minds the next time that we go to the ballot box, no matter what your political persuasion is.

Of particular interest to many of you will be the photos of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville New Orleans, the Dixie Brewing Company, and Fats Domino's house.

Thanks so much for the tour!
It's sad to think it takes so long to recover.
