Songwriters Festival 2018

Grill Man and I attended the 30a Songwriters Festival  2018 in Seaside with friends.

New Orleans 101, Friends, Food & more

New Orleans is a city that I love. I don’t presently live there but visit as often as I may. A city steeped in old world traditions, superstitions and architecture. New Orleans is a small big city.
