In the meantime, here are some photos I took in Louisiana with my daughter last week. We had a good time visiting my mom, our relatives, and her friends. We actually did a little cooking which was nice, but we also dined in restaurants and ate like royalty. Both of us flushed money down the toilet at The Hollywood Casino -- toilets being the slot machines. We tried our hand at roulette, blackjack and video poker, but fared even worse there. Lady luck was not with us this trip. On the last day we went downtown to take pictures and we were able to tour the Louisiana Old State Capitol building. I had my first wedding reception there in 1980. Seeing it again 29 years later, I was able to appreciate the aesthetics more. It is really stunning inside and out.
