Sorry for the lack of blogging. In the last week and a half I have watched or participated in SIXTEEN Mardi Gras parades.
This despite having to work every day AND having walking pneumonia/bronchitis and being on a spare leg due to problems with my regular one.
New Orleans...Not for the weak.
Pics today from the Iris and Tucks parades.
Marchers. Lots of marchers.
The local dance troupe Muff-a-lottas were here again.
And I got more stuff--about 20lbs. worth of beads, cups and other trinkets...and that's just from today.
Edited to add: I wondered why there was a huge gap in the Tucks parade. Turns out someone got shot...again.
Man shot as New Orleans parade rolls at St. Charles and Napoleon avenues, police say.
News reports indicate that the shot came from inside a portable toilet along the route. Apparently someone was unclear on how to safely "take care of business" while carrying. But it only held the parade up for about fifteen minutes.
And a car plowed into the crowd at Endymion tonight, too.

Some people are just too drunk or stupid to have a good time.
