Last month I did a trip to Mississippi and Louisiana, visited some friends, played some blues, went to a festival in New Orleans, judged hot tamales at The Hot Tamales Festival in Greenville, took part in the annual Tommy Johnson Celebrations, went to the IBC Solo Blues Competition in Indianola, went to a party and made some new friends. I flew home from Chicago just before Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast (lucky escape!)

I've put photos with titles and descriptions on my Flickr site and here are the links. Please take a look.
