Mardi Gras

Okay, just wanted to say how proud I am of the 2 societies or whatever that paraded tonight. We came home with a plastic baseball and bat, 2 footballs, a hula hoop, 2 frisbees, several beads, and 1 moon pie. That is awesome - think of the exercise the little children of the city will be inspired to get with these kinds of throws! They certainly won't be sitting around stuffing their faces with all kinds of candy while watching TV for hours - fantastic and well done.

Did I mention that the 2 parades took 45 minutes total (that's short) and they flew by at about 10 mph? One float had 3...count 'em - 3....riders on the first level and 0 on the second level! Drew commented that that particular group was mostly "older ladies" - isn't he so politically correct? That just makes it even better that they threw sporting goods. If it had been my grandmother (Honor to the East) she'd be throwing Juicy Fruit, Snicker bars, and cans of Dr. Pepper. And then saying, "Aren't you a fat little thing!" (Which she actually said to a little girl one time.)

Don't forget my friend, Jeanne, is Queen of the Order of the Polka Dots this year so maybe it was their parade you saw?
