Mom visit AAR

So I think my mom had some fun while she was here.

I took er on a guided tour of St. Louis Cemetery, the oldest in the city, to see the above-ground tombs used here.

As a bonus, the tour was conducted by a good friend of mine, who also happens to be a die-hard feminist and social justice warrior.

Then I took mom to the Gumbo Festival for food and music from local brass bands.

Out for breakfast, drinking mimosas.

To part of a drag show, one that turned out to be just a little too risque.

We did a few museums and galleries around the city.
And we visited a private collection of Mard Gras Indian memorabilia.
We also went to a few shows at night, and mom took to a burlesque show hosted by another friend of mine surprisingly enthusiastically.
And she actually won the grand prize!

And of course there was much quality time with her "grand-puppies" as she calls them.
We packed a lot into four days but now she's home and life is returning to normal...whatever that is.


  1. And I am guessing the pups were well behaved and obedient with your mom who pampered them to death :)

  2. Hey Murphy;

    Glad the Nissan didn't wreck your plans(Pardon the Pun) Looks like your mom had a good visit with the sites and the dogs. I do wonder how you manage not to blow your cover with the Feminist/SJW crowd though...

  3. I want to know what you were holding in your hand that had the Pups undivided attention, because They Are Focused.

  4. Great pics, and glad she had a good time! And yes, you had 'something' the pups wanted in that last shot! :-D
