Happy Birthday New Orleans

New Orleans was founded today in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville. .

Our lovely town is named for Duke of Orleans, Phillippe II, a bit of a gay blade.

New Orleans has changed a lot since my first visit here back in the 70s. The rollicking, anything goes atmosphere has diminished a bit but I’m still proud to call the old girl home.
