For starters--it's the first time since Katrina that I've been stopped on the old bridge for a boat to go through. Even though the bridge (built in 1928) was basically undamaged, the power supply to operate the bridge had to be redone, and that took a couple of months. Since I'm not in a work situation with a critical arrival time, I just sat there and filed down my nails.

I spent the day upstairs, and most of that at the computer. I ended up with printouts of the contents of each of the boxes I've done. Then I went through them and noted where files about various people were located. My final printout of women with "records" is almost three pages long, single-spaced.

The drive home was uneventful (thank goodness) and generally dry. However, as I headed towards Slidell the skies looked darker and darker. I had given some thought to getting a Wendy's salad, but the dark skies put me in a bit of a hurry to get home before it rained.

The dark skies were playing games--it didn't rain at all. But that's summer weather in the Gulf South.

The weather people say the rest of the week will be like this--maybe rain, maybe not.

The Saints are playing the Cowboys tonight in Shreveport. That's about midway between Dallas and New Orleans and the game has been sold out since the weekend.

The Superdome isn't quite ready inside, and all the pre-season games are being played elsewhere. The so-called home games are being played in places where the Saints people think they can build fan interest and get them to come to New Orleans. Their first regular season home game is Monday, September 25. With more than 55,000 season tickets sold already, there should be a capacity crowd. I plan to be in that number.

A quick glance at the little clock in the corner of the screen tells me it's time to watch football.
