By 1990 Seymour had completed his PhD and was well established in the world of space radar altimetry. He and I gave papers at an Ocean Sciences meeting in New Orleans in the February. We took time for a river trip and to visit some local hostelries. At Pat O’Briens Seymour decided that the “Hurricane” cocktails were too fancy and stuck to canned Lite. Walking along Bourbon Street a strange thing happened. A white stretched Limo with blackened windows cruised slowly by us. As it came level with Seymour the sun roof slid back and a bejeweled hand emerged, tossed a trinket – Mardi Gras style – to Seymour, and then withdrew. The sun roof closed and the Limo purred away. Seymour was very nonchalant about it, but I was impressed.
