Bob baked cinnamon rolls for breakfast.We visited with him for a while and then we hooked up and drove about 50 miles down the road to Covington, Louisiana. This is where our friends Gary and Linda live. They used to live in West U and Gary was Jim’s boss. We talked a while at their house and had a beer. Then we went to a bar called the Barley Oak by Lake Pontchatrain. You could see the causeway from the balcony where we sat. It was beautiful and sunny today. We drove around a little more and then stopped by a store to buy some snacks. We went back to the house and had cheese, salami, grapes, veggies with dip and some crackers with wine. Later in the evening we went out for dinner at New Orleans Food and Spirits. The food was really good. Jim had red beans and rice with pork chops, Gary had fish and Linda and I had shrimp and grits. Linda had candy for trick or treaters tonight but by the time we got back from dinner no one came around. She will donate the candy to the church food bank. We camped in Gary and Linda's driveway.
