Now a clearly disoriented woman involved in a rush-hour hit-and-run claims to be the younger of the long-gone Bethany sisters. But her involuntary admission and subsequent attempt to stonewall investigators only deepens the mystery. Where has she been? Why has she waited so long to come forward? Could her abductor truly be a beloved Baltimore cop?

It even survived the car wash.
My new favorite store for women's clothing is New York & Co. - good prices, the pants come in a "Tall" version, and the pants fit me well. I'm pleased to say I bought two pairs today - on sale - and reduced to $15/pair, and that I bought them in a size smaller than last time!
Weather has been kind of strange here in Mayberry-by-the-Sea; foggy in the mornings, but quite warm during the day. Last night about 3 am brought a cacophony of sounds. First a car alarm that woke me up, but when that stopped, I could hear the surf pounding on the shore . . . that was a much nicer sound to listen to the in the dark.
Hanna has tossed aside her old tendency to rise with the sun. Now we rise WAY before the sun. She's been getting me up about 5 am, and here's the thing. Because I know she has to go to the bathroom more often because of her increased thirst and hunger, and I know she is also always hungry, I'm letting her boss me around at times when I would have just told her to go away. So basically, Hanna is really working that whole "hey, I have cancer" angle.
My weekend is looking pretty open and free, and it won't be a disaster if I don't work, so I'm looking forward to some good leisure time.
Anybody going to a Halloween party this weekend, and if you are, what is your costume?

And here we are in New Orleans, at LaFitte's Bar - established in 1762. There are a few upgrades, but it is still lit at night primarily by candles. When you take a mule drawn carriage ride through the city, they pull up in front of LaFitte's, and a waiter comes out and takes your drink order. (Daiquiri, please!).

The last day we visited the oldest cemetery in New Orleans - all the graves are above ground. I'm not sure why the people in this statue are all headless.I did get to sample a crawfish poboy, a muffaletta, gumbo, red beans and rice, daiquiris, and raw oysters. We also had a wonderful steak dinner at the Orleans Grapevine. We also took the ferry to Algiers, and the streetcar to the Garden District.
So, while I probably won't join them again next year, I did enjoy myself, and enjoyed the City of New Orleans.

And the Angels actually beat the Sox in extra innings!
