As always, written with passion and skill.

You must always be torn between the urge to record the sights, sounds, names, and stories and your desire to jump into the middle of the dance floor and experience the moment. I'm sure you do both.

These stories made me look up the date for Mardi Gras 2015 (Feb. 17) and start to plot how to be in SW Louisiana around that time. And in 2019 Mardi Gras falls on my birthday.

You're right on the mark. Luckily the bands play long enough so I can do both. The biggest problem is when I'm on the dance floor and realize the song is truly worthy of video.
Way cool that this has you thinking about Mardi Gras next year and into 2019. What a birthday that would be!

Hi PAul,
I always love reading your writings, but I especially loved these 2. I felt like I was at Fred's, and could hear the music and felt the crowds. And the description of Bonsoir Catin was the same. I have never been to Mardi Gras, but your descriptions gave me a great feel for it! Hope you are still there enjoying!
