Missing Mardi Gras

I miss the warm & damp Mardi Gras parades that I went to while The Kid lived in New Orleans. For a northern boy, anytime it rains & it's warmer than 50 degrees Farenheit, it is truly a party. & I've got the pics to prove it, although y'all will have to become, well, dead if I showed them to you. Here's a little factual info concerning the Mardi Gras colors:
The green tucked neatly into the middle of Carnival's official trio of colors symbolizes faith. (Purple stands for justice; gold for power. And if you didn't know these three colors, my friend, you need some serious bead remediation courses and another slice of king cake.)
