A Dog’s Life

Yes. Sunday and Mardi Gras. About dogs. And their people. From my point of view, the main parade yesterday was the Krewe of Barkus. Yes. Barkus. Bark. Bark. Bark. Except these dogs were all pretty good. They visited with each other before showtime. Then they walked throughout The French Quarter. It was their parade. TheContinue reading “A Dog’s Life”

Sweet Caroline

So. I know what you are wondering. “What’s the deal with Sweet Caroline?” Well. I never saw or heard or anything like it. But first, a little back story. This is the ‘titRex Parade. No. It doesn’t mean what you think it does. The name is short for Petit Rex. No. I didn’t misspell it.Continue reading “Sweet Caroline”

A Food Store Story

This stuff drives me crazy. The internet and its lack of accurate information. I’ll get to that in a minute. But first, a few words about this picture. A few days ago I mentioned a guy that I know – grocery store owner — called Mike Keller. The store is called Keller Market Food Store.Continue reading “A Food Store Story”

And, On The Fourth of July

The Details

But, in a nutshell it’s aContinue reading “Cooking… and eating”


I thought I would post the tight portrait of Harold. I had a hard time selecting yesterday, so maybe you should see both images. I’ve got some more reporting to do on Central City, so I’ll leave you with that for today.

The Streets

I thought that I would give you a look at some of the places where I’m working on my Central City project. There are some pretty good overalls, but I really wanted to show you yet another person who lives in the area while combining that with the place. This is Harold. Working with himContinue reading “The Streets”

Living There

Despite its bad reputation, there is a huge population of people who have lived in Central City, New Orleans, for most of their lives. They, too are worried about the violent crime and what will become of them if Ventral City is actually turned around as many folks are hoping and planning. This is oneContinue reading “Living There”
