MREs at the mall


(Picture from the Times-Picayune, of Adlers' display window at
Lakeside mall in Metairie)

You know, us New Orleans people, we still talk about food all
the time, even if it's MREs. Everyone seems to have a box or
two of them lying around for lunch while gutting houses or
whatever.

I went to the mall yesterday! It was its usual madhouse self,
even without a lot of stores. Lately we've all been searching
for whatever 'normal' we can find in these parts. I had sushi
and coffee Uptown last night, perfectly normal until two army
boys with m16s slung over their shoulders walk into Rue. The
military presence in the city these days is like something out
of a war movie. It's highly surreal. The city has people in
it now though, in contrast to the first time I went in at the
end of September. Halloween is tomorrow and I'm still wondering
where that month went.

What a great pic!!! Seems like New Orleans folks always know how to dress up a situation. :)

At this point, all some of us have left is a sense of humor. ;)

Besides that, the MREs are seriously not bad. They even have good candy in them, and tabasco sauce.
