My colleague from the Professional Writers Association of Canada, Bob Bott, is in town for a few days. He’s travelling on a 900 miles bike trip from Katy, TX to Panama City, Florida over a 5-6 week period.

Tonight we went to a Chalmette, LA institution – Rocky and Carlo’s Restaurant and Bar for dinner. Tomorrow or Saturday perhaps a tour of Katrina destruction and on Sunday the PoBoy Preservation festival.

Here Bob enjoys deep-fried oysters, red beans and rice and “wop salad” (yes that’s what it is really called. Of course, this is also the place where the signs say “Ladies Invited”.)
