I hope this does not impact Naked Karaoke - Decadence Edition at Always Lounge this evening.  That would be tragic.

Kicking in our room!

I also enjoy pizza...

Paging Garrett Hartley.  Please pick up the black and gold phone!

"We dance even if there’s no radio. We drink at funerals. We talk too much and laugh too loud and live too large and, frankly, we’re suspicious of others who don’t." Chris Rose ...NOLA Proud...

Swipe the photos and see Hurricane Katrina disaster dissolve into present-day recovery

The loss and suffering can't be forgotten.  The physical progress is amazing but the evacuation process for those that need help, is still a work in progress.  


"We stand on many shoulders"

I say this year after year because ...  I don't want to ever loose touch with this experience and what it taught me about what is really important.  

To my dear clients, friends and family - those that weathered the storm and helped us weather the storm... You are blessings to me.     

I wish I could say I did not know anyone who died on and around 8.29.05 but I do. Before I ended my night and as I have for years on this anniversary, I listened to "May His Soul Rest In Peace" and watched the images closely.  At 4:42 that beautiful horn is Derek.  I vividly remember sitting in St. Louis Cathedral in December of 2005 and listening to that song for the first time.  I am not sure there was a dry eye in the place.  I will never forget y'all... and never forget all of those that died so senselessly. 

I will never forget the clients and friends that we never had the opportunity to say goodbye to.

I will never forget how difficult rebuilding my home and business was...

I will never forget those that helped me get past those dark days...

Thank you to our pre and post Katrina clients for sticking with us and choosing us. And to my team those past and current. I am grateful for you...

New Orleans Pet Care was always a dream of mine. Silly perhaps - but my dream... realized and reborn.

My  hometown has such a hold on me...  despite my farm dreams... I just can't let go.

Viva New Orleans!

One of my very best friends whom I love beyond...

keeps me in the know when it comes to children (ones with 2 legs).

Seriously - I am not even kidding.

Lice Lady.  

She comes to your house if your children have lice and takes care of - well - the lice. Oh and by the way... super expensive.

I can't.  I just can't.

I am the last person to know these things.

Okay - now back to email.

I ran out of treats but still they wait...

So sue me.  Call CPS.  Whatever.... we can all stand to loose a few.

Trying to decide if Henri or Isabelle should open this...

Oh and I have a "unit".  New news.

Wednesday before a holiday...

Our newest little daily babies!

Sweet baby face...

Oh goodness - bananas around here y'all! 

Facebook post from a client -

Attention all pet owners in the New Orleans area:
A friend lives on a side street off Esplanade Ave close to the City Park side of Esplanade. She heard the other morning someone calling" Here Kitty Kitty" at the back of her driveway. She saw a teenage light skin black male trying to take one of her cats. He was all the way up her driveway. He ran away when confronted.
Later in the day a neighbor saw 3 young black males, including this one from earlier, taking another neighbor's 2 french bulldogs from the yard. They were climbing back over a 6 FOOT FENCE! They dropped the dogs & ran.
She got pictures of them running away & a pic of the LICENSE PLATE NUMBER!!!
The police are investigating. Other neighbors saw a car with dark windows driving slowly in the neighborhood earlier in the day.
It is believed they were trying to steal peoples' pets to be used as bait in dog fighting.
The cat & the 2 French Bulldogs were not harmed.
Please keep your pets inside. Watch your neighborhood for unfamiliar cars & people.
Please share.New Orleans, Louisiana. USA

AC - and we are not talking Anderson Cooper!

Shake your tail feather honey!

Now? Now? Now? Now? Now?

What? People eat on this toy?

Rome loves sleeping with his client...

Time to wake up for school!
