Mardi Gras 2007

We spent Presidents' Day making 4 King Cakes (one mini-cake). Two will go to GTY, one to a gathering that Kerry has Tuesday night, and we'll have the other for breakfast. This is our 17th year making King Cakes. The year I was in India we had cakes shipped to GTY from Meche's in Lafayette.

We do a family Mardi Gras - fully clothed and in our right minds. The type that most people do. The one in NOLA is not typical; It's a shame that it gets all the press. The ones in small towns are non-drunken affairs for the whole family - good food, good music, good costumes, and good fun.

I don't mean to nit-pick----yea, I do----but I don't think your math adds up.
