The Way Home...

Thane & I slept in late on Wednesday and headed toward UpTown a few moments after 9am. We made a stop by PJ's Coffee to buy a King Cake to take home for the family to enjoy. We also ran by the construction project on N. Galvez to see the work crew from Boston and Cory Roberts.

After a few photos and hugs from the crew, Cory took us DownTown for a few moments. He had a gift made for me and my family and we had to pick it up. Cory had a member of the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club make me my very own Zulu Coconut. It will be displayed proudly in my home as a remembrance of this time in NOLA and my friendship with Cory.

The rest of the day was spent in airports waiting and flying home. At RDU Shelley, Joy, Creech and Katy met us and we quickly exited the airport and headed toward home. On the way we stopped and ate a bit of food. It was Thane's first experience with Chick-Fil-A. Those of us who live near this great fast food eatery know he will never be the same!

    Where in the world would they not have Chick-Fil-A ? Hey Jimmy, I've been looking over your Blog again. Looks like you and Thane had a good time together this week. I suppose you are home by now enjoying family. We got home Sunday night around 7:30 EST and I had to go right off to work and just got in tonight for 1st time. Harold (remember our Blue hat) he went right off to another assignment cutting trees, but I think he was to come in tonight too. I'll see hime tomorrow morning at the MOM breakfast at church. You have great pics on your site, hope you don't mind that I borrowed a few of them, keep em coming. Hope our replacements fed yall OK after we left. Was realy nice getting to meet you and spend a little time together.
