They're Ba-a-a-ck!

A movie company is filming in our neighborhood.  You might find that exciting, but it happens around here quite a bit and I just can't get too excited this time around.

There are trailers and caterers and buses and cherrypickers everywhere messing with traffic.  And the folks who work at Sophie Wright school parking spots have been displaced again.  Guess where they're parking?  Yep.  On our sidestreet, too close to the intersection.  And that leads to -- say it with me, now:


I was in the yard with the dogs yesterday when the football players were heading back to school from practice and caught this moment on video to share with you --

Pleasant, huh?

No, no.  Don't thank me!  I'm an inclusive kind of gal -- don't want anyone to feel left out.


  1. Wow... flashing roof lights, too! They have ALL the bases covered, eh?

  2. You might say that. And they'll add the next obnoxious thing to come down the pike.

  3. It could be worse, Moogie. Think: submarine klaxon in place of the beeper. "Dive! Dive! Dive!"

    Or don't.

  4. Yeah Moogie, we get that film making stuff around here all the time. For the first couple of years it was kinda interesting. But now it's just a pain...streets blocked off...heck, even a full section of I-49 shut down for a month so they could film some Escape from Somewhere piece of hollyweirdo trash.

    Sorry about the bleepin' buses. But, at least it ain't gunfire.

  5. at least it ain't gunfire Good point, Andy! At least for today.

    Buck -- you might be onto something. A submarine klaxon might be more apropos in New Orleans! Oooh. Sorry.
