Daily Adventures

There's nothing "special" about this post. There's no grand story of Oscar or life lesson not even redneck drama. (I know you are all so sad and probably wondering if you will even continue reading.) I debated writing a blog like this because I feel like a complete narcisist. The blogs I follow are mostly of people with husbands and children and I have neither....yet anyways. So, sometimes I struggle with blogging period things that happen to me, but today I am doing it!! I'm taking the plunge, at the risk of looking like a complete narcisist, and blogging about the past couple of weeks COMPLETE with pictures of these marvelous daily adventures!

Fabulous Affirming Day in NOLA

"I have found adventure in flying, in world travel, in business, and even close at hand... Adventure is a state of mind - and spirit."

Our day started with a trip to Harlow’s Donuts, of course. Drew, my “Joan of Arc” mission, and I always have the best experiences together. So, when the little old man who was pushing 80 at a mere 5’1” called Drew “a little boy” while the man proceeds to flirt with the donut cashier, we knew this day held many adventures. Boy, were we right!! The drive down there was pretty mild, filled with wonderful conversation. The fun really began when we enter New Orleans and got behind a school bus full of children who were around the age of 9 or 10. One of them looked at me made his forefinger and thumb like a gun and pretended to shoot me then took the same hand and made a very lewd gesture. I was app
