    Happy Mardi Gras y'all!

    It's so hard being away from the fun, the frivolity, and the rambunctiousness of the crowded Parades, but I've been thrilled...

    to have this on my iPhone,


    to see my sweet children in these shirts (thank you Melissa!!),



    to delight in this,


    to dance around and sing with these great New Orleans musicians I grew up listening to,



    to dine on this fun, traditional Mardi Gras evening dinner.

    It's certainly not the same as being home and shouting: "Throw me something, Mister!!" or grabbing Popeye's with my family while camping out on the Carrollton neutral ground, but we do our part even halfway across the world.

    We'll be there in spirit~and maybe libations~the next 24 hours.

    To all my N'awlins dawlins: a very Happy Mardi Gras and laissez les bon temps rouler!
