For those readers who are not “Mardi Gras literate”; today’s entry is entitled “Let the Good Times Roll!!!” and is in tribute to my day of “reveling” in downtown Mobile, Alabama at the annual Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Celebration.
From 9am until a little after 6 o’clock this evening; I watched parades, caught some beads, moonpies, and stuffed animals being hurled from the dozens and dozens of parade floats, drank some beer, ate some funnel cakes and corn dogs, watched drunken ladies dance in very un-lady-like fashion, and saw my share of T-shirts with witty inscriptions such as “Ride Me Like a Float, Eat Me Like a Moon Pie.”
Tommorow begins Lent for those of that religious denomination. Today was the traditional end-all-be-all day to rid yourself of any temptations that might make you stumble during the Lenten season.
For those not of the faith of the Holy Roman Church, it was a great way to celebrate a Tuesday. I fall into the latter category. And let’s just say I had a great Tuesday.
Wished ya’ll were here with me.
Wanna sing about Mardi Gras in Mobile?
