There was no Riverfront streetcar when I was still there. Change is inevitable, but I want my old city back!!! Smile

If I don't answer when you talk to me or about me, that's likely because I have you on ignore.  Try to PM me. It won't let you PM me if I have you on ignore. There are other people, not members, who peruse this site. I want THEM to know why I don't reply to everyone who talks to or about me.

We used to take the St Charles Ave. trolley to Jackson Square to see what was going on there. And man, there was always something going on at the square.

Does anyone know the Camellia Grill at the end of the St. Charles trolley line?  Like the entire city, a one of a kind.

You went all the way up the line, past Tulane, past Audubon Zoo... as far as you can go on the St Charles streetcar. I'm not sure if I've been to the Grill or not.  Memory dims. But I know I've been up there. I had a friend who lived up in that area.

My oldest kid. See the sign above her head.  One of my first cousin's kids was an artist at Jackson Square. I ran into him accidentally last time I was in New Orleans with my daughter. It was the day this picture was taken. Cousin is now a truck driver. He got a degree in landscape engineering or something like that, worked some years, and decided to drop out of life. Became an artist in the Square. Then moved to Mississippi on our grandparents old farm and after that, he became a long distance truck driver. He's retired now and back at the farm.

Had breakfast there!  In Carrollton, which is the end of the St Charles line. Scrumptious!

US 129 aka "The Dragon", beginning at the Tennessee/North Carolina line it is an 11 mile stretch over the mountain containing 318 curves. Not for the faint of heart or those prone to motion sickness. North Carolina locals call it "that damn road to Tennessee".

I came back from Coffeyville this morning via county road.  When I was a kid I would see that sign "via county road"  and really wonder long and hard about what the hell does that even mean. 

I traveled the Gypsum Hills Scenic byway or whatever it is called across Barber and Comanche counties.
