Gimme Beads and Fancy Things

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, a French Catholic tradition that celebrates debauchery before Lent begins with Ash Wednesday for Christians. The festival date varies from city to city, but most Americans base their celebration of Mardi Gras off of the famous celebration in New Orleans.                                                                                  mardimaskKali do you remember when mom and dad went to New Orleans?  Oh ya, they had fun.  So did we…MOL,  Dai$y of databbiesotrouttowne was a riot.  The trout she brought to the party was so delicious and big.  This was the first time we tasted trout, where has it been all our life?

Mom and dad went south right after Mardi Gras two years ago..  Mom brought us back some beads that were hanging on the trees.                                                                            shoko-with-mardi-gras-beads

Mom said the houses were so colourful and the streets so pretty.

May you sleep like the pigs….How do pigs sleep?

With their eyes closed of course.                                                                                        sistersinarmswinter

        None are actually called Scottish, but I will look for it. I love the taste of lemon ginger, but never drink more than one cup… it tends to have laxative qualities. Raspberry is yummy.

    I would love to go to New Orleans someday, but I think maybe not during Mardi Gras. So where are you two going while your folk are away, Shoko and Kali? Over to Cow Kittie’s *chuckle* Please ask your Mom to take lots of pictures wherever they go so you can share them with your friends (us).

    Those beads are great, I have seen in TV Mardi Grass party, everywhere is beads and people dancing, it looked a little bit scary to me.
    I have a strange feeling that your mom and dad are soon having something very exciting…

    New Orleans has to be an INTERESTING place to visit but not during Mardi Gras….too crazy I think! Love your beads! I assume you girls will be having a big old PAR-TAY when your folks go away on their trip? I’ll be standing by with Teddy for the invitation……….

      My mom agrees. They had an apartment on Bourbon St. and said Friday and Saturday nights they had to take the pictures off the walls there was so much noise. This was the weekend after Mardi Gras so Mardi Gras must be very loud.

    You look great in your beads and you didn’t even have to “earn” them 🙂 We want to go to your party when your folks go away.

    Wasn’t the ski trip terrifical. Floofy Face, those slopes were perfect for a nice clean jump. I liked our snuggle time too. The hot nip tea was so uplifting. I am going to pop at the Campfire today for Dr. Seuss day….you?

    Love,

    Your Shoo
