The Louisiana Diaries: Doin' the Mardi Gras! In Lafayette . . . yesterday all day at the carnival riding rides and listening to zydeco on the bandstand all set up near Cajun Dome - home of U. of L Ragin' Cajuns!
Tonight, the Children's Parade in downtown Lafayette -- where one can expect to be buried in beads. Tomorrow, another parade and all day festivities in downtown Lafayette. Later this week..., a trip to NOLA to visit the French Quarter POST Mardi Gras (filled with drunken college students; including 'flashing' women. Not exactly family entertainment!).
Happy Mardi Gras all! BTW, so far Mary is going to give up her computer for one week for 'Lent;' dad is quitting smoking (again) and I am thinking of giving up housework!
