Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler...

Being on the MS Gulf Coast since
2000, I have adopted this Mardi Gras fever. I am not going to parades and
baring my boobies, but I do enjoy the festive atmosphere...and the

Today is FAT TUESDAY---the day to do what you wanna...

Because at midnight, it's Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent season.

Mardi Gras is about music, parades, picnics, floats and excitement. It's one big holiday in this area!

Everyone is wearing purple, green, and gold, and adorned with long
beads caught from the beautiful floats. You'll see a lot of crazy
costumes, kids everywhere, and both locals and visitors having a great
time.  People sit on the ground, throw balls, play music, eat great food
and watch the crowds walk by between parades.  During Mardi Gras, all
of the businesses and roads are practically shut down.  People walk
everywhere and meet new friends. 

So today, let the good times roll!!! Eat, drink, and be merry...
