Mittens (the cat) brought a LIVE BIRD into the house this morning to show me just how happy he is to back in my care. Fortunately, it flew right back out the door—after I screamed and he dropped it—but not before shedding half its feathers in the living room and taking a massive crap on the floor.

I was surprised to find myself a little teary as I was driving toward the airport.

I’m exhausted, and still sorting through my photos from the trip, but here are a few I took from my hotel room on my first night in New Orleans.
