Mardi Gras

King Larry (not to be confused with Larry King!) and Sleepy Queen Ell,
Mardi Gras 2010

Yeah, you right! Mardi Gras at the Original Farmers Market over the weekend was super fun! The Market is having another band, Eddie Baytos and the Nervis Bros. TONIGHT too! Fat Tuesday is a special day for us. It's the day Larry and I got married 18 years ago! The date of Mardi Gras changes every year, so we celebrate on Fat Tuesday and on our "real" anniversary, March 3rd.
I caught a bit of Lisa Haley and her Zydecats set. They are always fantastic.

The most fun was checking out everyone's Mardi Gras costumes, hats and finery at the Market.

Yes, we all passed a mighty fine time at the Mardi Gras! Laissez les bons temps rouler! Let the good times roll, baby!
I'm on vacation this week. Later today I'll be preparing a bread pudding with whisky sauce for yet another celebration!
