I am sitting in a folding chair near the corner of Johnston and University in Lafayette, LA waiting for the parade. It's the second night of Mardi Gras and our second parade. By the end of last night's parade we were all loaded down with beads. It is surprising what some adults will do for some cheap plastic necklaces! However, we will all act like idiots again tonight, shamelessly fighting for those cheap prizes.
We are in Lafayette with our RV club until Wednesday and the end of Mardi Gras. Tomorrow we are going to Avery Island to tour the Tabasco factory. No parades tomorrow, Sunday.
It won't be long now until we are screaming "throw me something, mister!"
This is primarily a travel blog in which I write about traveling in our motorhome. Our travels have
- Robert & Carol Ann Martin
- Nacogdoches, TX, United States
- I began this blog as a vehicle for reporting on a 47-day trip made by my wife and me in our motorhome down to the Yucatan Peninsula and back. I continued writing about our post-Yucatan travels and gradually began including non-travel related topics. I often rant about things that piss me off, such as gun violence, fracking, healthcare, education, and anything else that pushes my button. I have a photography gallery on my Smugmug site (http://rbmartiniv.smugmug.com).
