Show Me Your ...

While being part of the sea of revelers on Bourbon Street can be fun, I always enjoyed the Mardi Gras view from above. My apartment was on Rue Royale, just across from the Wildlife and Fisheries Building, with a huge balcony overlooking the show. We would have cases of beads on the balcony, and toss them down to those especially eager and/or eyecatching. The case of rubber shackles was especially fun one year.

"No, not for you sweetie ... for your boyfriend!"

So here I sit in New York, far away from the carnival celebration, but am there in spirit.

And I've got some virtual beads. Show me something ...

Happy Mardi Gras!
