    Boy! Janis got her beads on the cheap! Then again, they’re not really in NOLA. So I guess the NOLA rules don’t apply.

    In that case, he should have said “Since we aren’t able to go to Rio for Carnival this year …”. Of course they don’t do Louisiana creole food in Rio, but I can live with that.

    Stop worrying, there is the distinct possibility that the majority of us will get through this.

    Is this a really devious way of saying Janis was good enough to be rewarded for a certain..um..display?

    I don’t understand how Mardi Gras works but I think Arlo is wasting his pearls, they’re supposed to be traded. At least that’s what I learned from Mardi Gras gone wild videos :D

    Of course, ask any Alabamian, and they’ll remind you that Mardi Gras in America began in Mobile, AL (and please, it’s pronounced Mu-beel)…..

    I never go into the city for Mardi Gras. I don’t think anyone is this year what with COVID and the temperature. I once saw a Mardi Gras parade in Albany, NY. Two fire trucks and a limo. They didn’t even throw anything. Not many spectators with all the snow and cold.

    I grew up in Baton Rouge, and we always got two days off from school for Mardi Gras. It was a bit of culture shock when I moved to North Carolina, and found out that Mardi Gras wasn’t considered a holiday!

    My favorite Mardi Gras story: We were at one of many parades, and a woman in a tiger costume on a tiger-themed float pointed at me and threw a looooong bead of big purple beads. It was a delighted and I immediately wrapped it around my neck. Sometime later, while we were walking around the French Quarter, a large man came up to me out of nowhere and said, forcefully, “Gimme those beads!” I grasped the beads (rather like one would grasp her pearls) and said, “I can’t give them to you. The Tiger Woman gave them to me!” He stepped back looking somewhat startled, then just walked away.

    My Mom and some friends of hers went to the Mardi Gras one year when she was well into her retirement years. She had the best stories to tell upon her return, but needless to say I’m sure she didn’t relate ALL of the goings on. What happens in New Orleans (not unlike Vegas) stays in New Orleans. She did have some cool beads to show for it though :-)

    You couldn’t pay me to go to New Orleans at any time – but especially during Mardi Gras.

    When I went to Mardi Gras, one of the locals asked me if this was my first time there. I said it was my first time in “New Or le ans”. He said not to pronounce it that way. That I sounded like a tourist. I told him I was a tourist. He said it was pronounced “N’Awlins”. LOL

    My wife and I went to N’Awlins with another couple to hang out in the French Quarter. Unknown to the woman of the other couple, THEY were going there to get married. She had been pushing marriage for years; they even had a fight about it on the plane. Rob had arranged to get married by a boat captain out on the river; if we were over the border in Mississippi, this was legal. Carol was blown away, and after the wedding we partied like there was no tomorrow.

    We were in New Orleans last March before they knew they were a hotbed of the Virus. We loved NOLA. Mind you we were downtown during the day not at night. It was fun and very entertaining. Then we headed to El Paso and part way across heard the health reports from NOLA. We kept and eye on each other for the week we were in EP. we were heading to cali to spend a few weeks in Coachella and Palm Spring but it turns out the Canadian government slapped a travel ban on that area so we slowly wended our way how back to the cold and snow.

    It isn’t what you DID do that matters; it’s what you COULD do that’s important.
