Mista Barista got all of three days home from China before he was sent off to New Orleans to cover Hurricane Gustav. He sent this photo postcard from the Royal Sonesta Hotel in the French Quarter, press headquarters for covering the storm. Tomorrow is our 23rd wedding anniversary.
Hi, Honey! Here are the flowers I got you for our anniversary. I am leaving them in a hotel lobby for safekeeping for now, while I’m stuck on Gustav watch in deserted New Orleans.
(Sorry, it’s already dark and none of the pictures outside look like anything.)

Fingers crossed that the levees hold.
