As Mardi Gras approaches we celebrated “Fat Saturday,” and helped raise money fort the animal shelter at the same time. How’s that for a win-win party?
It was the Third Annual Mardi Gras Celebration in our native West Point. We were struck by how few people from our age group were out kicking up their heels. Marie says we’re raising the bar for aging boomers. Bring it on. Buck Luke even played our favorite music until toward the end when he began playing contemporary tunes which drove us right out the front door.
The truth was – we’d had a long day, celebrating Norma’s maiden voyage on Route 66. (Yes she’s among the first of our crowd to turn 50 plus Sweet 16, as we prefer to think of it.).
