New Orleans for Christmas
We drove out of the cold iad into Dixie for Christmas... it was -9F in Billings when we left and +82 in New Orleans on Christmas Day. Arriving late on Christmas Eve we were able to walk around Canal Street some. Chritmas Day brought more good wqeather and good food. We at at the buffet at Harrahs Casino. Turkey, Prime Rib, Chiken, Taters, Jumbo Shrimp, Fruit, and a number of desserts... I could hardly waddle out of there.
After New Orleans we drove up through the rain to Memphis to visit the kids. And I took another drivr up into Tennessee to see my brothers little farm... nice!
