Laisse bon ton roulette

Feb 27th UPDATE: Laisse bon ton roulette le Nast'!!! Y'all come by Boulder Station and get (hit with) some genuine 2006 Mardi Gras beads tonight. I shlepp'ed a grocery bag of 'em back here from the rowdy Spanish Town parade in Baton Rouge on Saturday (see below). - BG

Dispatch from Louisiana

February 25th, 2006, Baton Rouge. It's cold, and raining like mad. But, we are ready. 10 a.m. and the beverages are in place. The air is filled with zydeco music and other swampy funk riffs (some big horn band playin' at the moment, the funk down here is a lot looser, jangly'er -- swampier). I can't believe we're into the sauce already. But, yeah...pace yourself, BobbyG, pace yourself...

ABOVE: Cheryl is in 10 a.m. major party mode. BELOW: Charlie Crawdad is about to enter the top of the food chain. Before & After pics.

I'll be bringin' a huge pile of Mardi Gras beads to the gig Monday night. Be interesting trying to squeeze all this stuff in my carry-on luggage (tryin' not to check any bags this trip).
