Album Cover Art Wednesday: The Wild Tchoupitoulas

  1. Cold up here as well…grr…yesterday I woke up and discovered I hadn’t sufficiently dripped the kitchen faucet. Fortunately it didn’t burst, but I had to run a small heater under the sink for a couple of hours. I made sure last night the drip was more steady stream.
