Hot time in the Quarter.

Three days without rain and we're begging for it to come back. We're begging for anything that will relieve this oppressive heat. Last night at 8 p.m. coming across the Causeway (way out over the water) it was 100 degrees on the car thermometer!.

My son Shawn (other son, if you were reading last week) and his wife Sarah were in town. So see if you can guess where we went. You're right! Down to the Quarter for for beignets. Below, Shawn jokes that he will teach Sarah how to eat them.
The last pic today is of Shawn, Sarah and my wife, Linda, walking past St. Louis Cathedral, perhaps the most well-known landmark in New Orleans -- the oldest Cathedral in the United States. The first church on the site was built in 1727. Through fires and toils of the centuries it has re-risen and been reinvigorated time after time.

Check this web site for interior pictures. Check this site for more on the history.

Wow that's hot so you want some of my rain huh Steve. I can't make out what the first pic is of, though i think it's stunning with the droplets etc. Can you let me know?

Yes your son is really handsome i agree. His wife is amazingly pretty though ! What a lovely couple they look.

Looks like boiling tar....hope it's not.

I'm thinking of our lads in Iraq sweltering in full battle kit stuck in the back of an armoured carrier in 72 degrees centigrade (!) on night patrol in a sniper area.

I like the three photos. The young people are beautiful. I hope the heat will soon decrease. I have a hard time standing it too.
