Laissez les bon temps rouler, y'all
Parce qu'aujourd'hui c'est Mardi Gras!
It's so hard to even ponder going back there after the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. I haven't been back since the summer of the year before it hit. I just don't know if I can stand seeing the lingering profound changes.
...although my former love and I had planned to honeymoon there when we married next August. It's closer than Venice, he'd never been there, and he was a great fan of Louis Armstrong and other New Orleans jazz musicians.
I didn't even make a King Cake this year!
