I have some good news which I will post here later when I can say for sure.
I’ll file this under “something to do because it’s there and you may never be able to do it again.”
Spent the day in Louisiana with the folks. Visited Chalmette Battlefield, took a boat tour of Bayou Sauvage, and visited Fort Pike. Stopped in Bay Saint Louis for ice cream on the way back.
If I had someone to thank, I’d thank them in person.
I think the Academy Awards are on tonight.
Every time I want to ride my bicycle it has a flat tire. It’s from riding on the garbage-strewn grass shoulder on the road into town.
Let’s see, been slacking on entries this week. Trying to remotivate myself at work, need to hit the gym again after renewed effort last week, spoke to L., heard from an old friend, talked to the ARC about volunteering, spent too much of my days off sleeping, finally got rid of that goddamned bookshelf, argued […]
The last couple of I’ve been spending much of my free time catching up on the millions of little errands I let pile up last fall. I’ve put a fair dent in the list. Today I spent some time talking to a realtor and a mortgage loan officer. I’m still thinking about buying a house. […]

I took a nice bike ride into town to have a burger and to meet with Billie the Gregarious Realtor.
The Ocean Springs Film Fest had a screening of the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” underground amateur adaptation.

I didn’t get a chance to clean out the aquarium pump, which is getting very noisy, goddammit. I saw “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow,” […]
Continued cleaning up the park today. I am more bruised, lacerated, dirty, sore, and tired than I have been at work in a long time. In fact, the last time I worked this hard was on fire detail last September. Yikes. I need to hit the gym more often. My coworker put a song into […]
Finally got out to the island today. The fort is a mess. Lots of mud. There are fish living in there now. Some of last week’s plantings survived. Anyone who’s curious about how the park is dealing with the hurricane can check the NPS Morning Report. Watched “Sylvia” on DVD. Not too bad, very slow, […]
