This and That...

When I travel, I'm always on the lookout for something special to bring back with me that will remind me of my trip.  It can be as simple as a bag of sand from the beach, or something unique that I find along the way. A year ago I went to New Orleans and it was love at first sight!  I immediately felt so at home and loved the history, culture, architecture, lively atmosphere and of course, the food!  On our last day there, as we were walking down Bourbon Street, I spied this piece of brick and grabbed a plastic bag and wrapped it up.  I barely made it through security (those TSA agents were really shaking their heads after they screened my bag 3 times)....but, hey - I now have a little slice of NOLA in my home.  You know what they say, one man's junk is another man's treasure!

Enjoy!  (Doesn't it  look like a piece of raw meat or something?..... or at the very least a little bit radioactive?)....
