dream come true

Today is my birthday,
and I woke up early to my dream coming true.
Rainreal live rain!
Lots of it.
Bayou-busting, swamp-flushing, frog-strangling
the stuff that made man build boats.
It's a beautiful thing.
Because a cool and rainy day is just what I'd wished for,
I'm choosing to take it personally.
You're welcome.

For openers, we went to Lucile's for breakfast.
Smoked eggs, trout Pontchartrain and grits.
Laissez les bontemps rouler, etc.

Happy birthday, everyone...
whenever it is.

Happy Birthday!! You lucky rainy day girl!!

did you paint the Lucille's art? Whoever did, it's terrific!

I'd be happy to have painted that great picture! It's hanging in the restaurant and is a combination of hand-tinted photo and acrylic. A p-card of it is on our reefer door at home. No signature, no credit on the either one.

Happy birthday Sam! I just got it in with 10 minutes to spare (English time). Hope you are having a great evening and stuffing your face with all sorts of goodies.
