Saturday Husband Walter and I were waiting for our order of beignets at a packed Café du Monde in New Orleans’ French Quarter. I was busy people watching when it registered that couples and groups all around us were snapping photos, all with heads close together.
Couples, groups of girlfriends, parents and kids, all enjoying a festive, perfect day. I caught the photo frenzy.
“Walter, I want a picture of us.” He took several shots with my camera.
His attempts caught me but missed himself.
He handed me the camera for me to try. I got both of us in the frame but a wobbly hold created fuzzy results. Hubby tried teamwork, me aiming and snapping with his hand steadying my forearm.
And that is our record of a happy day, just in time to stash the camera and enjoy the beignets that arrived hot and piled with powdered sugar.
