    Anyone know anyone who attended?

    I was so wiped out from my long, warm, lovely vacation to central coastal California and SoCal, I didn't even have the energy to wander down there (from Memphis).

    What a change - used to be, you couldn't drag me away from the festivities.

    I have a gig tonight.
    Maybe someone will show me their beads.
    Prolly not.

    Still recovering from a guys weekend in Fla. Was going to at least see one of the two bands playing tonight in Kent, OH. But now am already settled in.

    I used to live in New Orleans while stationed at Belle Chase a few years pre-flood. I have forgotten more about Mardis Gras than I will ever recall, but I hear that I had a great time.

    If the wind is just right and I hold my head just right I can probably hear the party ongoing South of the lake.
    We holding tight here at the farm.

    My friend on Gov Nicholls once had to dump ice water from his third-floor balcony on a couple going at it on top of his historic car.

    When people discovered you were sharing a house just 2 blocks from the Endymion parade route, suddenly you had friends from Chicago and Indianapolis and Goodness Knows where else.

    I tended to retreat to my parents' house during Carnival, because when I went up to my bedroom at the shared house, my bed was already full - and it never was all girls in that bed. Shucks. And they beat the heck out of my records and player.

    I remember getting wedding invitations, etc, from people that stayed with us, but there were so many I couldn't keep track, and so I seldom went.

    I'm an introverted claustrophobic sensitive non drinking gentle soul. I spent a New Years in New Orleans one year, and at the time I was thinking that Mardi Gras for me would be a nightmare.

    I'll pass.

    I think that's more of a Midwest thing?

    Does Mobile (Alabama) count? I went to the MOT ball this time. It was a hoot and a holler. Apologies for not reporting in sooner, but did not expect there would be general interest here.
