Take me to the Mardi Gras!

Me and Miss Asta are in New Orleans for a bit of pre Mardi Gras pawtying!

After some difficulty with the crabs for the gumbo escaping from their boxes at JFK in New York, we have officially arrived and met up with some of our pals.....

Here we are with Jake and Miss Fergi having Big Nets at the Cafe Du Monde! Miss Asta and Miss Fergi had that chicory coffee stuff. Me and Jake stuck with the CoCola (see, I can talk Southrin!) A most Welcome Side Effect is that CoCola is quite simpatico with Terrier Vibes, so we should be able to stay awake until early Wednesday morning, which is what Asta and Fergie have in mind anyway!Asta and I had to stop and eat some crawfish (or crayfish, whichever you prefer) and so we picked up a half a basket of crabs to replace the ones we had to abandon at the airport.



C'mon take me to the Mardi Gras
Where the people sing and play
Where the dancing is elite
And there's music in the street
Both night and day

Hurry take me to the Mardi Gras
In the city of my dreams
You can legalize your lows
You can wear your summer clothes
In the New Orleans

And I will lay my burden down
Rest my head upon that shore
And when I wear that starry crown
I won't be wanting anymore

Take your burdens to the Mardi Gras
Let the music wash your soul
You can mingle in the street
You can jingle to the beat
Of Jelly Roll

Nobody says it like Paul Simon

We're still dusting off powdered sugar ... all that dancing about (with the extra energy we've been consuming ... thank dogness, or we'd be fast asleep by now) is creating a cloud of white around here. (Or is that snow? No matter. All is good.)

One thing we DO know ... that song you taught us ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_c0pH4iYLcA ) is reeling around and around in our heads.

Such fun!
All we need now is some of Muzzer's gumbo. (It was gumbo ... right?)

Wow...you guys have the best food, music and fun...

I KNOW Asta had a blast...and she got so jelly of Muzzer's gumbo she had to make some herself...

As for Mango need to do DNA testing on our ADORABLE egg? Shame on you, Gussie for even suggesting that...of course, it's our puppy. I'm planning on he/she attending MIT or Harvard....where ever Mango can afford...

Kisses,
