Oviously not even pretending to be representative; however, if you'll indulge me and let me call it surreal...Normally Rising Tide would be the absolute highlight for me -- getting to meet and hang with the best of the best of New Orleans is a privilege...
And it was a highlight. Wouldn't miss it for anything...but I had to leave a little early.
Because I was also humbled, privileged, elated, and of course saddened to attend a memorial service at the local Unitarian Church, pictured above (minus Tiggs, of course.) It was for fellow cat lover and so much more Paula, the best of the best here in Red Stick, for whom eternity came far too quickly for those of us lucky enough to meet her.
We love you and miss you already, Paula.
Have a good weekend.
