Another 4th of July come and gone.
It rained. Again. The third year in a row.
Did it rain on 7/4/05? It is hard for us New Orleans residents to remember much detail about that summer before Katrina.
People came over. I grilled, with a beach umbrella for shelter, stuck up in the air between the banana trees and the cabana roof. All was good.
I wanted people to paint flags again, on old pieces of corrugated metal I had prepared. But it rained.
