Tuesday, March 5, 2019 – Fat Tuesday – Laissez le bon temps rouler
It is Mardi Gras Ya’ll. Let the Good Times Roll!
Throw me some beads!
If you are raising your shirt to get some cheap plastic beads you can buy at the party store place, you better have a couple of hurricanes from Pat O’Brian’s inside you. It is cold outside!
Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday” — meaning it is the last opportunity to eat rich food before the fast of Lent begins. It is related to celebrations elsewhere, called “carnivals,” from the Latin words carne and vale,“meat” and “farewell,” meaning a farewell to meat before the abstinence of Lent.
Peace, Love and Gumbo
