We've given the plants an extra watering, drawn the blinds and lowered the lights. Kiko's House will be dark for the Labor Day weekend while we put in some blog-free quality time at the Rhythm and Roots Festival at the Rhode Island shore, a nonpareil event celebrating the music of Louisiana. How appropriate with the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina at hand.
Until then, may the wind be at your back and the sun shine warm upon your land. Unless you need the rain.
