QUINCY — gone, but never forgotten.
She belonged to our wonderful friend in Lake Charles, Paula Stebbins... who brought "Q" to visit us in the French Quarter where she met our pups and we all had an outing at the dog park.
Larry captured some of that visit on these videos he created after Quincy got her Canadian Championship.
We will all miss Quincy ... but no one more than Paula. Our hearts are with you, sweetheart.

Another brother ointo the fray...........
Bill and Dirdre sent Bart over to join the celebrations.
After planning his strategy, he kindly brought along his own giant slice of pink cake just in case the kids didn't have any. But not to worry, they had a very lovely birthday cake of their own.
Welcome Bart! Hail fellow...well met!

Hornets 2009-2010 Season
The Fates weren't kind to the guys this year. They kept getting injured. I'm hoping that we got that over with this season and the next one will be a better one for the team, the coaches and the fans.
We love Jeff Bower and hope and pray that the new majority owner feels the same way. Jeff has been a superb General Manager. As for coaching...we wouldn't have seen the talent we have in our younger players if we had continued under Byron Scott. We want to see Jeff back with the team next season...in whatever role he needs to play. I think he deserves a promotion!
Darren Collison and Marcus Thornton turned out to be the best rookie acquisitions the Hornets ever got in a year. They really met the challenge that was handed to them.
I liked Byron Scott but he wasn't a teacher. He only feels comfortable with older players and didn't have the courage to play the great young players that were brought in for him. And from what I've heard, he also intimidated the younger players so much that they were scared if him. That's not how you develop a team. What's the sense of having a good draft if you never get to see them play?
Bob Licht and Gil McGregor with CST are the very best at what they do, too. The most I've learned about NBA basketball I've learned from a handful of people. Starting with Larry, my husband, who knows enough about the game to be a referee. He's a font of basketball intellience and often tells me what happened a second or two before I hear it from the other "coaches" I've had...Gil and Bob, Doug Collins and Hubie Brown. When I watch a game they preside on I know I'm going to learn something, so I pay very close attention.
Watching other games, the only feeling I get is that I'm watching groups of "homers" whose teams can do no wrong and every call against them is a bad one.
It will be very interesting to see how the Hornets Experience changes from a fan's point of view. I hope that feeling of "You're part of the Hornets Family" doesn't disappear. It's a great plus. All the fans enjoy talking to one another after seeing the same faces every year. It's like a huge party....and they're all glad you came.
Even the people who work in the Arena are wonderful...they know their areas and guard them like Fort Knox to keep them safe for their family of fans.
We want to give a huge thank you to Linda, Ramona, Gerolyn, Robin, Earnest, Gabe and Bud for watching over us. You make us feel very safe and protected.
I know I haven't covered everyone...all the people who sit in our area, the announcers and entertainers and scorekeepers, etc. but they are all part and parcel of one of the greatest experiences we've ever had...and worth the cost.
I hope next season I can say the same thing.

“THORNTON HEARS A WHO DAT"
"WHO DAT", of course, is unique to New Orleans...as in "Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints?" Now, sports fans in New Orleans are known as the "Who Dat Nation".
Bob Licht used the pic in his "Bob Licht: In the Lane" column featuring his "In the Lane 2010 Awards". He had suggested the theme while chatting with us before one of the games and Larry had fun with it. He's so good at this!
You can read Bob's column and see the pic here:
