    Good news, Im going home!

    After a year working away from my beloved New Orelans, and living in a FEMA Trailer, I will be returning for good tomorrow!

    For those of you that don't know, I worked at a hospital that was condemmed becouse of hurricane Katrina, and was transferred over 200 miles from New Orleans and my wife and daughter. I am being transferred back to a renovated facilty tomorrow.

    We still do not have a home, and will live with family until some things get worked out with the aid we are to receive adn the oil spill that our home was in. (another long story)

    I am very happy to be returning home, I has been very difficult being away from my girls and I look forward to a more normal life, and hopefully soon a new home.

    Apug has been truly wonderful during the last 15 months of my life, I have received so many offers to help from you guys and just want to thank you all. My family thanks you as well, for allowing me to photograph again has giving me new meaning, and without the donations I received that would not have been possible.

    I look forward to this new step in our recovery.

    As we say in France, Bonne Chance et Bonne Courage!

    A few miles from where I live is an Acadian museum; many Cajuns came from this part of France.

    Cheers,
