Mardi Gras Mayhem


Well it's that time of year again. The glitter is deep, feathers are flying, sequins and all that is shiny has come out of the bins to create yet another Mardi Gras costume.
It's also the time of year I essentially disappear from the web for a week, perhaps two. I have my brother John and his wild family coming from Michigan for the celebration. My sister Corky her daughter Chloe and their two dogs also from Michigan will be staying with my sister Sissy that lives around the corner. We'll be going to the parades the parties and once again celebrating life and each other in the form of Mardi Gras.
So if you notice an absence of LoopyBoopy be sure I will return once the beads have been caught, the costumes have been donned, the alcohol has been drunk and the booties have been shook. I look forward to returning with renewed inspiration and zest for life as Mardi Gras always is great for both.

I always wanted to celebrate Mardi gras in New Orleans.
My mom and second dad were in New Orleans during Mardi Gras 18 years ago and they looooved it.
Please take pics, have fun and be safe ;)
