Okay, let's take a break from Mardi Gras for a day. Hey, it wasn't my idea, it was the weatherman's -- he let a front come through here and cancel all the parades for tonight. Tomorrow at this point is kind of iffy, too.
Let's sit back, take a deep breath and put ourselves in a good place. Imagine yourself on a sunny day, sitting on the akefront wall in Mandeville, under the shade of a century-old oak. Favorite fishing pole in hand. The fish are biting. The cotton is high.
Sing with me. "Summertime....." --- you're doing good, keep singing.
See, weather can't bother us.
Tomorrow.... back to Mardi Gras. .... but for now, keep singing.
Lagniappe -- (a little something extra)
a cool morning,
All the elements are in place.... for the beginning of one of the country's greatest orators....
today on Pixel Eyed.
