Would not mind if this thread veers into a fungicide / disease treatment plan.
After a few years respite, my lawn got the brown patch -- or something other nasty crud -- last fall. Added to my healthy crop of Virginia Buttonweed... well, it was not pretty.
Gas and a match?...

Dennery's, that's the name that was missing. It was there that my dad taught me the joy of 1) crackers at the table and 2) pouring what I first thought was salad dressing (Kumback) on said crackers. It probably helped that my uptown New Orleans-raised mom was back home while this redneck ritual was ...

Just by looking at the traffic speeds on Google maps, it looks like things improve just N. of Blytheville, and by some 40 miles north of there are back up to speed.

No mention of handling emails via mobile device as soon as they come in, and then moving on?

Good. That route is a bit more "scenic", if only because it runs in the daytime ... or at least used to back when I could park at my office a block away from the NOLA station and take a $10 ride up to Jackson to see my family.
Good times. You two have a great trip, OK....

Serious question: are you riding on the City of New Orleans (MS to NOLA) or the Crescent (AL to NOLA). Reason I ask is that the Park Service used give in-train "tours" of the ecology / biology of the areas you pass. I'm sure with budget cuts and/or (insert your favorite political complaint here) tho...

Agreed. The more-difficult issue will be finding a parking space. Beware that the ground around here is soaked. If you get here early, try a school or church parking lot and just walk a few blocks to intersect the parade....

You know Endymion starts on Orleans, not Canal, right? Plenty of neighborhood parking in that area, just make sure you park in the right direction / side of the street and avoid fire hydrants, driveways and corners (meter-maid targets).
I lived a block off Orleans pre-K. Still miss it....
