It's Just Not Another Tuesday! Happy Mardi Gras!


Before we hit the streets, one last post.
The sound of drums and brass woke me up before 7 AM, one of the zillions of walking parades making their way past our house on the way to The French Quarter. The first parade Zulu rolls at 8 AM, and the great walking parade of bohemians and artists, The St. Ann parade gets going around the same time in the Bywater. People have been out since 5 AM claiming spots along the parade route on St. Charles Avenue.


Rex, King of Carnival rules New Orleans today and has made his official proclamation ordering his subjects to celebrate! The Rex Organization is officially known as The School of Design.

You see everything today from Voodoo royalty...

Queen Marie Laveau and consort Dr. John


French Quarter royalty


... to skeletons and Indians...

...and kitty cats and many Elvi...

...and babies and kids...

...and vamps reveling too...

Wish you were all here to play with us!

Happy Mardi Gras!

"Mardi Gras morning when the sun comes up, I drink fire water from a silver cup! "
Amen, and pour some on the ground too for those that have passed on. Happy Mardi Gras!
