The Charming Endeavor Blog Tour has led Danny Kaufman and I toward the farthest reaches of our ever changing landscape. From the scorched earth and tangerine-scented flavor of the Deep South, to the Windy City that never sleeps. From across the Great Pond where the Old City sparks nostalgia, to the Piedmont Grille in Carolina Blue. We risked a frigid night or two up North of the Border, and wandered across the Great Salt Lake. We journeyed into the past for a memory and a giggle with Nicki Elson. We shed a tear over Olivia J. Herrell's touching review. We shared a deep dish with Michael Di Gesu. And along the way, spoke at length with the Golden Eagle.
But it was upon our journey home from Cali, and visit with dear friend Donna Hole, when Danny and I ventured south, our sights set for the Bayou, and a visit long overdue.
When offered the invitation, I hesitated but for a moment, deciding whether or not to review my life insurance policy before packing my things. For this trip would be like no other...
Roland Yeomans needs no introduction. Perhaps the most inspired writer in Blogland and beyond, his gifted penmanship has lured more than nine hundred followers to his posts, those spirited tales narrated from visitors beyond the grave.
We've sparked a friendship, Roland and I, a storytelling duo of sorts. An admiration of each other's work.
And so when he invited Danny Kaufman and I down to the Bayou for a sit down at Meilori's, that famous 'Nawlins Nightclub where the dead like to play, I leaped at the opportunity...
So come along with Danny and I, as our month-long journey comes to an end, but not before a visit to Meilori's, sharing drinks and a festive chat with Roland Yeomans...and whoever else may drop by ;)
