This is my own version of a weekly book haul and all things new on fuonlyknew.

I’m also linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Sunday Post

Some chit chat.

It’s the second week of February here on the Gulf Coast, and you know what that means?

Laissez les bon temps roulez!

Let the good times roll!

It’s Mardi Gras time!

Friday night saw the first of many parades, starting off with the Conde Cavaliers. People flock in droves to catch beads, toys, and Moon Pies.

Many people believe this celebration originated in New Orleans when in fact, history shows the first celebration was established in 1703 by French settlers in Mobile, Alabama. And we do it up big here.

I’ve been to many parades but not so often now that I’m older. It can be tiring and people go crazy for the trinkets.  I do hope to go to at least one. I’ll brave the crowds, the need for a non- existent bathroom, and the people willing to break my arm to snatch that shiny strand of beads I’ve managed to latch on to right out of my hands. LOL

Have you ever been to a Mardi Gras parade?
