Ben, thanks for the link. Unfortunately, for the first time in many years, this year a combination of circumstances conspired to prevent me from attending JazzFest.

On the bright side, however, I will be home to see our 18-year-old daughter graduate from Lone Star Community College with a two-year Associate's degree in Mechanical Engineering after a year and a half of straight As. That's the good news. The other news is the prospect of paying fall tuition at the University of Texas.

The rest of the good news is I will be home for Mothers' Day.

But your post inspired me to look up the local news coverage of JazzFest. The (some)Times-Picayune had so many articles that I'm just posting the link to all of them.

The "Aggravate" doesn't have a JazzFest page, at least not that I could find, but their Music page has a lot of JazzFest articles.
http://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans/ ... ife/music/

The shelf life on these links may not be very long since the URLs don't have dates.

Oh, edited to add an afterthought: I sure do miss those soft-shelled crab po-boys from the Galley! And the pheasant, quail, and Andouille gumbo from Prejean's. I could go on and on about favorite JazzFest foods.

It goes without saying, chawlie -- but I'll say it anyway -- you do know what it means to miss New Orleans! But , alas, I do fret that you'll have to mis this year's JazzFest. And I echo that "fret," since I won't be there neither.

But, alas, congrats on your good news: Am betting you're as proud as punch in anticipation of her next set of tassel strings. But, speaking of strings, ya gonna havta loosen those purse strings a bit more --- $$$ --- for her pursuits down at Travis County's UT. I know: Though I didn't know her then, My Bride is a proud UT grad...But, then there's an "Oh, Woe?!" looming: who will you shake your booty -- and pom-poms -- for when LSU's Tigers square off with the UT Longhorns?

Meanstwhile, I gotta t'row in another re-wind you went and caused: The Galley is where I first met Our lovely hostess, her sweetie; Mrs.Fury & her Sweetums and Occifer CopCop, who'd just dropped off his main squeeze for another pre-planned engagement. Didn't meet him, but the late, learned DrJSTJ was unable to get there due to some transportation issues. Amazing. Regards, as ever, good sir!
