Heart-shaped cutouts in the moulding, the most tender of details on the Natchez.
(They’re speakers that let passengers in the dining room hear the jazz band that plays on the deck.)
Tried to find Better Cheddar at Dorignac’s like a true Sacred Heartie but they actually sell it at Langenstein’s (the other old lady grocery store in Metairie).
My friends threw me the best surprise graduation party on Saturday night! Greg, Mike, and Hemie stalled me with beers at PD until everything was ready. When I arrived at the Church to meet Shrimp for our “night out,” I was greeted by a conga line of revelers. I hadn’t the slightest clue that a party was in the works! The decorations were really fantastic. Kate nabbed a bed pan, urine cups, and syringes from her clinic. I smack ed a confetti filled syringe piñata with a mannequin leg that Siobahn salvaged from a dumpster. Dine and Catherine made custom Tibetan prayer flags. Glitter was everywhere. Allegra and Arthur even made it for a true surprise. Burke jumped off the patio into the neighbor’s pool for the final coup of the night!
I am so grateful for my friends. They sure know how to make a lady feel loved (and throw a mean bash in the process)!
Finally riding the Steamboat Natchez as a passenger. I think I drank the Kool Aid because I truly love this vessel! The Mississippi is so much more majestic from the breezy top deck!
