Heading East

These tulips seem to be pointed in the direction that I am going tomorrow. I'm off to Baton Rouge for 4 days with my youngest son. Can't wait to spend time with him and the rest of my family.

I am afraid to look at my Google Reader when I return. It may take me a while to get caught up on all the blogs I follow.

But I needn't worry about that for a few days.

Until then, I will be eating good seafood, drinking Café au lait, and eating beignets for breakfast.

I will walk down the street from my mom's house to check on this unusual tree wart. Someone actually tried to make use of this anomaly by hanging something from it. I think it should have a name. We've become quite close the last several years, as I've photographed it/him/her at some point during every visit. I'm thinking a cajun name like...Boudreaux. Yeah, I like it! Boudreaux it is!
Maybe I like anomalies so much because I am one. I can relate.


My mother will be sitting next to this table, where we will catch up on the family shenanigans. I probably should have said 'family drama', but I like the word shenanigans. Say it out loud. It's a fun word.

Okay, gotta go. Looking forward to some beautiful photos from everyone when I return! Laissez les bon temp rouler!

Sounds like a wonderful trip! I know what you mean about the Google Reader - I'm still playing catch-up from last week. But forget about it and enjoy yourself!

Hiya,
If you like tree warts/anomalies so much, I shall have to tell you about witches' brooms when you get back :-)
Remind me.
Have a great visit without too many beignets.

What a gorgeous image with which to point east. Have a wonderful visit with your son and mother. Leave the warts on the trees and enjoy all that Cajun food. And when you get back, maybe you'll help me understand the Google reader!
