Week 20 Photo of the Week, New Orleans, 1988

13 05 2009

The New Orleans Jazz Band was leading our group down to the river for a night cruise on the Mississippi River. It was 1988 and we were in New Orleans for the annual MUMPS Conference. I worked for Digital Equipment Corporation as a Tech Writer and we got to go to the annual conferences every year.

KarenB and I used to go early or stay extra days and do some sightseeing. We had some great times (Atlanta, Seattle, Orlando)! Oh, and MUMPS is a programming language (they call it M now). I bet that there are still PDP-11 computers running MUMPS in the VA Hospitals.

I remember this – was it really 20 years ago?!!! New Orleans was my favorite trip. Loved those beignets…

It was 21 years! Remember the Finns 🙂 and then I met KMF! Wowie Zowie. I liked Seattle too. We went to Vancouver and had Dim Sum. Yum. Those were the days.

Love how you put the focus on the band – also love that bright red umbrella! Super composition!
