Happy Mardi Gras!

I walked downtown this morning for the annual Deep Inferno small town Mardi Gras parade.

I met Miss Wanda under the Jim Bowie oak.

Never watch a parade with Miss Wanda, she hogs all the damn beads.

Miss Wanda shoves me out of the way for the crawfish float.

Float made out of an old school bus.

Parade going by on Main Street

I walked home with some neighbors.

I want to go to the big courir parade and street dance out in Eunice this afternoon, but I'm so tired, my back is stiff and sore, and my feet ache from the neuropathy so I don't know if I'll make it. No matter how much I long to have my life back to normal, the truth is my energy level just hasn't bounced back yet. But maybe if I rest of even take a nap. We'll see.

We went to visit my cousins in Shreveport this past weekend, and went to my first TAME Mardi Gras parade ever. It was child-friendly, even. We got HEAPS of beads, the child is so cute she fielded 4 stuffed animals from float riders, and it was terrific. The last time I went to a Mardi Gras parade, I was drunk off my slightly-post-college ass, covered in beads, for which I had to do some unseemly things, not the LEAST of which was flashing my boobs. Of course, that was New Orleans... and Shreveport ain't New Orleans. But it was a GREAT TIME!
Happy Shrove Wednesday.

I awarded myself Mardi Gras beads for being topless in front of the rad tech and nurse. Go me.
