Happy New Year's Eve!

Dance like no one is watching...

One of our wonderful neighbors, Joey Bonhage... died on Christmas Day. He was such a wonderful friend to all of us who walk the streets of the Garden District with our babies... He will be missed. I remember one night before Remy died we were walking and stopped by Joey's to give Remy a rest. Joey realized how sick he was at that time and always gave him a slice of bread... Remy never turned down bread! As Remy was resting, we were watching the dinner guests arrive at Commanders and naturally we were commenting on whatever struck us interesting or absurd! He started to tell me the funniest story about (years ago) going to a luncheon and announcing his intention to be the Queen of Carnival! He always made me laugh... Tonight...he would want us all to dance like no one is watching... Rest sweet Joey... rest. We will miss you friend.
