Tennessee Williams said it, I didn’t!  However, I will say, after having been to New Orleans several times, Mr. Williams was definitely on to something!  No shade to Cleveland.  Really, I have family there. Hell, I’ve even partied there; the Flats were swinging!  But with that said, New Orleans has a special quality that is very hard to express in words.  To me, it is a place that you just have to experience.  Once you do, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

          Always a pleasure Susan!

  2. I’ve never been. I’ve been wanting to go, especially for Mardi Gras. Lol. I was younger when I wanted to go. It gets too crazy so maybe some other time of the year…not when it’s too hot and humid either.
