The land of Mardi Gras....

I've been a bit busy lately with some other writing tasks and just a busy life. And now– here it is–time for me and my wife to travel south on our winter vacation for (we hope) some sunshine and warm weather.

We're heading to the land of Mardi Gras and sandy beaches. The photo on the left was taken last year at the annual Mardi Gras parade on Fat Tuesday near where we stay. The krews on the floats throw beads, moon pies and you name it. So we all "catch" a bead necklace or two and every person gets in the spirit. It's a great tradition that we seem to miss up here in the north.

Hope you'll check the blog later for some of my musings, from the beach.

Stay tuned....
