Lundi Gras: Orpheus, Final Night Parade


All right! that was Orpheus last night . . . Harry Connick’s krewe. They were good but Muses wins this year.
So I am dressed in my costume and heading down for the Rex run for a couple photos and then to the restaurant to do the six mile stroll downtown to Frenchman St. with the steppers. We are all intent on two things today: seeing the Zulu dancers and the Mardi Gras Indians. We will see that, maybe more than once and everything else we see will be no less amazing. I’ll be taking lots of photos. Time to get my Irish Coffee and head out. If it’s just Tuesday where you are…..well, as always, thanks for that, it makes us feel freer. Happy Mardi Gras ! ! ! !

    You go, girl! You guys are showing us all how to pick up and survive! What a great spirit New Orleanians have had and always will have.

    I am disabled and just in 2005 got down where I have to ride in a wheelchair. All my life I have been a go getter and now I can’t due to Neurophaty, diabetis and blood clots ( Pulmanary Ambli). Every year I went to a Mardi Gras somewhere but this year I could not go due to me being in the hospital.
    I just wonder could someone send some beads, just one or two strings so I can have somethig from the 06 Mardi Gras.
