I am very sorry for not having written a blog in the last couple of weeks. I have been very busy working and since the Swine Flu came along, my schedule has been very erratic. Alright, for starters, you cannot get Swine Flu from eating pork. Now, that's all you really need to know. If you're feeling ill, take two pork rinds and call Jimmy Dean.
As for the subject of this post, I saw something really funny in New Orleans on Saturday, well funny to me but not to the bicyclist. My friend Sergey, the Doctor on board, saw this and he snapped a picture of it and e-mailed it to me. Evidently, the cyclist locked his bike up and removed the seat to keep someone from stealing his bicycle. Apparently that mattered not to this Crescent City thief. Everything BUT the frame was stolen from the bike, leaving it for the owner to wonder why he bothered.
Saturday in New Orleans was tremendous. Great weather, great food and a walk around town. Crawfish Po-Boys and smoked Boudin at NOLA Grocery, some Calabrese Salami from Cochon Butcher, and some Southern Candymakers Pecan Pralines for dessert. Lunch was washed down with some Abita Root Beers. Sergey also sent me this great shot of some shucked oysters he had for breakfast. Any day in Nawlins' is a good day.
