Yours Truly in a Swamp,
Yours Truly in a Swamp, Part Three of Trains, Festivals, Funerals and Food, e-column by Leonard Earl Johnson will be late this July.
Mr. Johnson beat his computer to death over multi-use mouse pad issues and awaits arrival of a new machine.

In the meantime we suggest re-reading archival columns. Perhaps parts one and two of Trains, Festivals, Funerals and Food (good telling of two recent New Orleans funerals).
LEJ was last seen grumbling, boarding Amtrak's Sunset Limited ~ West, in Lafayette. Bound for Houston and Los Angeles.

Though headed out in the wrong direction, LEJ will turn around and arrive on Frenchmen Street, New Orleans, in time to join the panel of distinguished judges drinking and adjudicating at the Hemingway Looking-alike Contest, Sunday, July 13, at The Maison (on the day before Bastille Day)!
Please join us, and remember LEJ's motto: 'One Whiskey One Vote!'
