Day 209 - Sis

A whole week in New Orleans, let's see what it will bring.  This time my daughter Lisa and I are the tour guides for my other daughter, Yolanda, and her hubby, Steve. Oh and for the next week he will be referred to as my son in my posting, so try not to get confused because once you see pictures you will wonder where he got the height!  I'm sure the first tour will be a night on Bourbon Street because our hotel is one block away from a Hurricane and dinner for them.

Day 209 - Lisa

My first picture in New Orleans!  So happy to be here with my family!  We landed right around 4:00pm, by the time we got to our hotel, settled in there wasn't much to do but head out onto Bourbon St, eat some dinner at Oceana, get some drinks and hear some music.  Oh darn!  We totally geeked out on the fact that we got to go out on one of the balconies of a bar and look down at the crowd.  No we didn't have any beads or taunt any ladies to show their tatas.  We didn't get to bed till around 3am Sunday morning.  We were off to a good start!

Day 208 - Lisa

Really?  You think you are going somewhere?  Go ahead; try and move me, let's see how far you get.  Aye yi yi, the guilt has already started.  I hate hate hate leaving the animals at their respective vacation homes for the week.  <sigh>

Day 208 - Sis

I love the Olympics and the excitement of the opening ceremonies!  Will be watching tonight.

Day 207 - Lisa

I cannot wait to eat here!  Just a little diner in the French Quarter but the food is oh so good!

Day 207 - Sis

It's the day for a haircut.  For me it causes some anxiety, especially a couple of days before vacation.  Think I better pack a lots of hair clips and hats.

Day 206 - Lisa

A week full of surprises.  Received this fruit arrangement @ work.  No idea who from - just said "thanks for everything you do."  That was nice wish I knew who it came from.  Being we are headed out on vacation I split the fruit between my staff.

Post 206 - Sis

It just screams California!  Abalone from the Monterey area and future Mutsun jewelry.  Looking forward to having time to start working on that.

Day 205 - Lisa

My mom stole my pic for the day so double shot of the china hutch.  Praying everything will fit inside.  I inherited all my paternal grandma and great grandma's china and glassware - it's a lot!  Look who already discovered the hutch.  We cannot keep Inspector sunii out of anything in the house!

Day 205 - Sis

This was a delivered about 10 minutes after the roofing company came out to give an estimate on the garage leak.  The good thing about it, besides being the future home for our china and glassware, it's already paid for. Looking forward to tomorrow, no deliveries or repair people scheduled.

Day 204 - Lisa

My sister texted me about the rumor of Slingin' Johnathan Sanchez coming back to the SF Giants in a trade today.  Bummer it didn't happen.  All of women in my family were so excited.  We'd welcome back the Old Viejo as we call him just for the eye candy on the mound.  ;>

Day 204 - Sis

Today a lot of time was spent watching five trees removed.  Quite a show that was interesting and sad to see these trees come down.  These men barely stopped work, four hours on a hot day that involved some very heavy lifting, climbing, cutting and hauling away.  Now have stumps in the yard that resembles those round spots in fields some claim were left by aliens!

Day 203 - Lisa

It looked simple enough - Aye yi yi!  Finally finished the TV stand.

Day 203 - Sis

Had to shop for just enough to get us through the week. Don't want to have a lot of perishables sitting here while we're away.  Why?  Because the weather can turn real bad, real fast and power outages are not uncommon.  Also had to get oneeya's supplies for her week's vacation with her little fur and human buddies.  Hope she has as much fun as we're planning to have while away.
