Staying on Bourbon St. for the week, the Golf Guy had no problem with a little 'quiet time' at the TPC Louisiana. FYI – don't take a hotel room facing Bourbon St. – the live music starts very early. Very, very early.
New Orleans is known for a little voodoo. It's no accident what Zurich spelled backwards means.
From an early age, 'Tuba Tom' understood the old saying, 'Size matters.' Sadly, 'Banjo Ben' did not get such good advice.
No words were spoken as this officer took one look at the Golf Guy and made it clear I wasn't allowed into the swanky 18th Green Cypress Suites.

I did NOT walk into this store. Twenty years ago? Sure, would have probably been sleeping in that trash can every night.
Unfortunately for some street performers, the 'groupies' following them aren't quite like Kate Hudson in 'Almost Famous;' rather women who actually give themselves their own haircuts.
After a morning involving coffee, toast, jam and a dose of Metamucil, Henry and his wife Virginia found themselves in the French Quarter and decided, 'Hell, if you can't beat 'em ... join 'em!'
