Look up "Jim on the Natchez" on Youtube.

It is my dear husband playing the caliope in New Orleans for his birthday. The first time they have let someone outside of the famous "Miss Debby" in 27 years.

Pretty cool.

Now that's pretty darned cool! Was it planned or just a spur of the moment thing?

Oh, Pat, you have no idea!

I started asking about this in June and was told by administration that no one is allowed to play it, as you can hear it "(Literally) all over the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans. I had to send them Jim's resume (Ph.D. in classical, music professor at Loyola and has been a church organist for 25 years) to convinence them to allow it.

We had two friends down from Montreal and Jim thought it was just the four of us simply going on the paddleboat tour. He seemed confused as friend upon friends showed up (about 40 in all) but didn't really "get it" until Miss Debby walked up to him "to show him something".

Too funny. Don't know how I'm going to top this one.

Sorry but I am the curious type. Was that you on the roof with him or Miss Debby?
