Des Allemands, Louisiana (Sundays In My City)

blue godzilla2Blue King Kong* tempts wayward motorists to get a cup, a pint, and even a gallon or two for the road along US 90. My father’s ancestors settled in this small village near New Orleans almost over 200 years ago. Then, they migrated further westward, away from blue concrete creatures hawking sweet, intoxicating slush.

  1. Methinks you may have lured into sampling that sweet, intoxicating slush. If my eyes do not deceive me, that is Blue King Kong — unless the doctrine of exceptionalism in Louisiana extends to re-naming movie monsters.


    1. I have thought about this move for awhile. What I want is a place in the US, and I want to live/work in another country for another 10 years or so. I am too young to retire, but I like having something here as home base. For the last year or so, I have felt a strong desire to spend time in Zambia. We shall see.


  2. Laurie,

    I’d like to invite you to join us as an author in Alexandria, either as an occasional guest author or as a fully privileged Resident Author.

    Alexandria might also be the perfect place in which to write about issues and interests which may not yet be an ideal fit for your current blog.

    If you think you might be interested in becoming a Resident Author, let me know and I’ll forward our formal invitations for you to look over and return, if you decide to proceed.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
