Happy Carnival

Mark Twain observed, “… I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States until he has seen Mardi Gras in New Orleans.”

It’s Monday morning in New Orleans and this Monday that means Lundi Gras! In the blink of an eye, Carnival will be over. In most places, tomorrow will be just another Tuesday. Here it is Mardi Gras, a major celebration. Schools will be closed. No mail will be delivered. Banks are closed. People, of all ages, will be outfitted in costumes and masks. The city is adorned with beads and doubloons and boas and funny hats and colored wigs.

Mardi Gras makes you say and do funny things. Yesterday, for instance, I noticed the time and remarked, “Okeanos is rolling and I haven’t started the king cake yet!” You are used to asking people if they are sidewalk side or neutral ground so you can find them on the parade route. I was very happy when I found my pink wig (that is a normal thing around here). We wondered if my husband’s Mardi Gras hat needs new batteries – because, of course, it lights up.

No one escapes this craziness.

Carnival in New Orleans is hard to explain. It is something that has to be experienced. It is fun and crazy. All of the colors, the music, the smells and excitement overload the senses. It is like nothing else. Hope your Monday is fabulous. Wish you were here!

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

    One thing I have actually noticed is the fact that there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the financial institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosure. One fantasy in particular is the fact the bank desires your house. Your banker wants your money, not the home. They want the money they loaned you with interest. Preventing the bank will only draw a foreclosed summary. Thanks for your posting.

    Hey there fantastic website! Does running a blog such as this require a massive amount work?
    I have absolutely no expertise in coding but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

    Anyways, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject however I just had to ask. Kudos!

    It is my belief that mesothelioma is definitely the most lethal cancer. It contains unusual characteristics. The more I look at it the more I am convinced it does not work like a real solid flesh cancer. When mesothelioma is actually a rogue viral infection, so there is the chance for developing a vaccine along with offering vaccination to asbestos subjected people who are open to high risk connected with developing long run asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for discussing your ideas for this important health issue.
