 Good Morning NOLA!  Can you say “rain, rain, go away”?  Sorry guys, but it’s not going anywhere.  Atleast not until later tonight.  We not only have thunderstorm warnings but we are under a tornado watch too. Temps will drop after the rain rolls through and our low tonight is forty-nine.  The parades rolled anyway the rain came down.  Endymion was moved to tomorrow and will roll with Bacchus.  There is still lots to do, so don’t let a little rain stop you.  I was soaked to the skin but still did my part to line the parade route.  Hot boiled crawfish was my reward after.  Along with a cold Abita Amber I think my day went very well in spite of the rain falling in sheets.  Tomorrow is another day and should be a great one. No rain in the forecast and nice temps should make it perfect parade weather. I will be “playing” Mardi Gras on the new Nick Cage movie “Medallion” being filed in the Big Easy. It shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for me.

Border Collie puppies available this March or June in around northwest Florida or north Louisiana?

I want a border collie but I’m waiting until the summer so that I will have time to spend with it and begin training and stuff without school getting in the way. Does anyone know if there will be puppies available at that time? I live 12 miles from destin florida and I travel to Louisiana in the summer with my parents so even from there would be good.

Below is a link to AKC Border Collie breeders. Just type in your zip code and select a radius.

AKC breeders usually sell "pet quality" puppies on spay/neuter contracts. Some AKC breeders charge over $1,000 for a "pet quality" specimen, which I think is a total ripoff, even if the litter does have champion bloodlines.

If you’re planning on spaying or neutering your new puppy, why not try adopting? Shelter dogs are generally up to date with shots and have already been spayed/neutered (but some shelters jump the gun and fix too young, so be careful).

 Good Morning NOLA! Keep an eye out for scattered thunderstorms today.  There is some rain moving in from the west.  It would not hurt to have the umbrella handy just in case.  The rain rain has been downgraded from fifty percent to forty percent but it is pretty cloudy so just be aware.  Our high today is seventy-six degrees with the low for tonight only abou ten degrees cooler at sixty-seven once the sun goes down.  For me personally it looks like I might be catching up on my writing today with quick strolls around the Quarter in between showers.  other than that it looks ike we have a super week shaking out leading up to the big Mardi Gras weekend.  There is plenty of sun in the forecast and only minimal chance of scattered showers possibly Saturday.  I think we will be fine for the week and weekend coming as well.  Don’t forget to practice you line,  “Throw me something Mister!”   Here’s wishing you a good haul of various Mardi Gras throws. See you in NOLA!
