The next in our series chronicling the adventures of Judy, a 20-year ovarian cancer survivor and longtime Support Volunteer. Judy is an award winning artist (see her work HERE) and the kind of daughter, sister and friend you wish you could take on your next road trip! We hope you’ll enjoy her zest for life and eye for beauty as much as we do!

The New Orleans French Quarter is only 1 ½ hours from Keesler, and we have been there several times. I guess we were last there 42 years ago. Our plan was to stay a couple of days, enjoy looking around and rest a bit.

We left New Orleans after a few days and headed for Oklahoma where we visited relatives.

We didn’t rest much but had lots of fun. Here I am holding a-two-year-old alligator.

We had a great visit with them before heading west to Abiquiu, Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico, all great artist’s towns. You know I loved that!
