While definitely bush league in style, it was close by (a five minute drive) and so Laura, Bernie and I headed out Saturday afternoon to see the parade and the street fair.
Want to come along?
OK then...here we go!
A Krewe is a group that does stuff together for Mardi Gras.
Or something like that.
If you feel really festive you spend a few bucks and buy a mask to wear too.
This dog just did feathers.
Isn't this lad absolutely adorable?
No wonder why so many beads were thrown his way!
I promise I didn't "flash" for them; Bernie threaten to.
Like dogs need songs to be happy...
I'm just amazed this kid isn't falling over from the weight of the beads.
These two are rather nice together though.
A sushi dinner worked wonders.
Where else would you be able to find cow hide toilet seats?
Such a lovely decorator touch.
So homey, so cozy.
(The funny boot shape is the outline of Louisiana. Why would anyone want the outline of the state of Louisiana on their toilet seat lid?)
Well now, wasn't that was fun?
Now I have a ton of beads draped over the lamp in my office.
And something to blog about, right?
