My Favorite Bar

Just saw this photo on nola.com, showing Louisiana National Guardsmen outside my favorite bar, Jean Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop on Bourbon Street. The Guard was patrolling this week after Hurricane Gustav.

Jean Lafitte's is always dark like that, it's lit only by candles. It's said to be the oldest bar in the U.S. I once saw a dog sitting in a stool in there, named Kafka.

The New Orleans visitors should have just stayed put. Another storm is on the way!

Knit on.
