This is what it looked like around here Sunday.
This is what it looks like today!
That’s what I like about the South. The weather was great for Mardi Gras. The Mystic Fish have been very lucky, it has only rained once on their parade, it wasn’t much and caused no harm. For the party Saturday night we also had great weather. That and good food, we were set. We ate about 10 or 12 dozen oysters, some raw some steamed. Stacey found these beautiful shrimp for the shrimp boil. Folks told her they were the biggest and best they had. Some of these folks were from the Gulf Coast and new of what they spoke. We also ate 4 bacon explosions. Six were cooked, one went home with Stacey’s lil Sis and one went home with us. The other 4 were eaten that night.
We had some new folks join us for the festivities this year. Some rejoined us after a break of a few years. They were busy having kids or something. Some folks we missed for the first time in a long time and hope they are back next year. It’s not the same without ya’ll.
All that being said I have to say it was one of our best years. Everything went very smooth. All the prepration was more like play then work. I think we have finally got the hang of it.
