Oh yes...but our local guy Mel Parnell was pretty awesome too.
Azalea Gardens and then up jeff hwy to where Haydels Bakery is you will find Camelia Gardens. Built at the same time by the same people,and are the same design.The only difference is that they are single family houses, not doubles. If you look on a map you can still see the outline from Camelia Gardens to Azalea Gardens as still looking like the old race track that was there, callled Jefferson Downs. Don't know about it being farmland because during my childhood during the 30's, it was a large racetrack. I suppose everything was farmland at one time.
It is neat to look on a map and see the outline of the entire racetrack, from the parking lot to the stalls.
Thursdays is locals day! What a joke. Jazz fest has not been for locals since the 70's. Anytime New Orleans comes up with something good it is mandatory that we share it with the world and then eventually sell it to the world and it then belongs to them

Yes these were ploys to get out of the public eye!
Oh boy what memories from the 60's.After watching a musical lineup at "The Warehouse" of Wet Willy, Marshal Tucker, Charlie Daniels, and the Allman Bros Band...all for $5 I might add! We would have the muchies really bad and a few dozen Manuel's hot tamales went down better than sliders.He also had a full blown mexican restaurant on jeff hwy near Oschner Hospital. Yeah for sure..."it ain't dere no mo"
Go to Schwegs early and you could see people in PJ's just getting some milk. The bar was fantastic. Men would bring their wives to the grocery and the guys stood at the bar drinking beer and eating oyster poboys. In those days a lot of women did not drive. Made brilliant business sense.
You writing this article put a mojo on our great team. Just wait until next year!
