The Big Easy . . . Who Dat?

This blog post will have more to do with the "Church of Rusted Souls" than anything else, and the 'ol Reverend Fritzie is gonna lay it down the way I see things in Life. You're gonna Die . . . from the day you are born you start to die. I don't mean to set a black morbid cloud over your head, just the opposite. Do you really need a doctor in a white lab coat to tell you that you only have so much time left on this here earth? If you found out you only had a year or two left, would you start making that bucket list? Why wait? You should do it ASAP!!!!!!!!! Cram as much shit in as you can, and die with yer boots on! Too many of my friends have died to early of cancer, bike wrecks, drug OD's, etc. I'm 49 now, and for the longest time I always wanted to see the French Quarter in New Orleans, ever since I went to Disney world and rode "Pirates of the Caribbean" as a kid. Two years ago, I did the ISCA car show here, it was good, but I had to work the show and only had one day to myself to walk around and see the sights. This year my wife and I came back. Just to walk around, look at art, listen to jazz, and drink Hurricanes. Besides this being a cool "Pirate" town, with loads of great history, one of my favorite things is all the wrought iron metal work and iron casting that abound the city. Like NYC it has many cultural charms, in food and tradition, but I love the metal work. I took a bunch of pics for you to look over in hope that you can get out of the garage and get inspired to build something! Sell off that vintage intake manifold collection that will probably never get used. Do you really need to impress people with that stuff? Are they worth all that money you invested? Its just stuff, you can get more. After you croke, your 'ol lady will sell it all off, and probably use the cash to go to New Orleans like you always promised. Why not just do it. I needed a little break, and look forward to getting back to the garage and color sanding on the "Baja Bandeeto." Just do it you deserve it! P.S. you can like me on facebook at
