Due to popular demand

Tandaina has informed that I have no excuse now and am to post photos.

I did not come to New Orleans alone.  On the first trip out I brought Belle, my hippoposterous, because I first met her at the Audubon Zoo gift shop in New Orleans.  I figured she might like to see her home town.  On the second trip out I brought her sister Margaret Macrina Dolphin (aka Maggie) to keep her company.  That way when I go home for a weekend they have each other to play with.  When I took my walk through Audubon Park they were in my briefcase, with the top open, so they could enjoy the day too.  So you see, like a good daddy, I took my kids to the park on Sunday morning.

We snuggle at night and they join me in saying bedtime prayers for all of you.

[Some of you now know more than you ever wished.  My kind of people will, I trust, simply be charmed and delighted.]

As you can see, they are right next to me at the laptop tonight as this photo is about five minutes old.

What a cute pair. Geek that I am I'm noticing the laptop body looks nothing like a MacBook but the little bit of screen i see looks quite a bit like OSX. Told you I was a geek.

(I am also glad to see I'm not the only one who will be taking the "stuffed" kids with me on my next adventure.) ;)

Now that is just too cute!

Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito think you should use your camera and writing skills to produce a regular episodic feature with these two. They invite the competition!

Ah Ha! Here lies the gauntlet!

You are both adults, right?--playing with children's toys, right? Stop this nonsense right now.

Don't make me bring Salome, The Doe-eyed Camel of Carnal Knowledge, into this; she may bring her friends (who am I to stop her?) and that'd be another reason for Poppa to learn to download photos.

We cannot have that: no indeedly doodly. Stop, I beg you, while there's still time.

Jeez: too late! They've moved in from the bedroom and they brought The King with them.

Waaahhhh! Johnieb just called me an adult.

Oh lordy, carnal knowledge of camels. We may have to verify our rating again - it's certainly not G.

A grown man walking through the park with his stuffed toy companions in a briefcase with the top open! It's a wonder your didn't get arrested.

I did not go anywhere near the children, so perhaps I did not appear too dangerous. An astute observer might have seen me talking to the kids when no one was nearby. I think the only person remotely in danger from me was the semi-clad bronzed bicyclist and I suspect that one was quite capable of self defense.
