A couple of weeks ago I received a gold Fleur de lis(French for Iris) pendant from my sister in Metairie. She had bought one for herself and liked it so much she got one for me. Lately I've been looking for some decorative iron work for my outside patio with a Fleur de lis, so this was a welcomed surprise!
The Fleur de lis is the symbol of New Orleans and the Saints football team! As you may already know, on Monday evening the Saints will be playing football in the Superdome for the first time since the Friday before hurricane Katrina! So join me and the rest of the world in celebrating this step in the rebirth of Southern Louisiana and the New Orleans Area by watching Monday Night Football. I'm sure this game against the Falcons is not to be missed!
