I have had a cold all week. Only worked barely a half-day yesterday, but today I felt some better, and tonight was one of the many Mardi Gras parades leading up to Fat Tuesday, here in Mobile. So I took the family down to enjoy the parade.
Mobile has the disputed reputation as being the birthplace of Mardi Gras. Not New Orleans. I describe it as a PG-13 version of Mardi Gras. A little tamer than the one in the Big Easy, just two hours west of us.
Tomorrow is Joe Cain Day. It’s an all day celebration of parades, music and revelry, as well as ample beer drinking, bead catching, and other assorted debauchery.
My kids and wife plan on spending tomorrow in downtown Mobile hoping to catch their share of Moon Pies and beads. I’ll see how I feel after tonight, if I decide to join them or not. I must be able to work Monday, as I do get Mardi Gras Day off.
