My old stomping ground of New Orleans.
Before coming to Kuwait in 1994, I worked downtown at a law firm for several years. It's where I met Angela and we have remained steadfast friends ever since. Although she and her family were displaced after Hurricane Katrina and moved to Ohio for awhile, she and her husband returned to their roots, unable to imagine living anywhere else.
We had a great weekend of food and merriment, walking the city and catching up.
And I just love her sweet little poodle, Peaches. Her left paw has been deformed since birth but that hasn't stopped her from bouncing all over the place. She is the teeniest, cutest little thing.
I worked in New Orleans but lived in Slidell and commuted every day to work. Angela is actually the only person I am in touch with from that period of my life so I find it quite ironic that all these years later, I meet a blog friend on and offline who lives in Slidell.
Next we head there for a visit with Val.
Sometimes you meet a person and you just click, you're comfortable with them, and you don't have to pretend to be anyone or anything.
