Chuck and Greg took me to Fincastle’s Diner for lunch. They have a special Mardi Gras menu this time of year and the food is great. We all had fried crawfish tails and I had a oyster po-boy on Gambino’s bread that the owner has shipped up for this event every year. Can’t wait to go back. Oh, and Jaybird, one of the waiters, sung a birthday song to me and got everybody in the restaurant to sing along. He’s a great singer.

I turned 53 today.


I loved these crystals in the mud on the sidewalk this morning.
