bacchus pictures








this was the bead catch airborn at 50' - not bad if I do not say so me self:)



I watched this at the end of my street. Even though the police decided to block it off and make an area for their employees I was still able to catch the bead de parade - and have a good time on my own. Please take a look - all 4 blocks from my house.

Question:

My buddy is down there and wants to send some king cakes home. Where is the best place to get them?

This is really the very best place - he can order on line from here or when he gets home.

that pic of the NOPD reminds me of something I saw Sunday leaving the parade. There was an intersection blocked off w/ about 6 NOPD officers on motorcycles. One of them was sleeping on his motorcycles. YES, sleeping. He had positioned himself on the bike w/ his head towards the steering, his body on the seat and his feet hanging off the tail end. Now, if something should happen what was he going to do? He was sleeping. Yes, Raspootin I tried to take a pic but my camera phone couldn't make it out and I didn't have my digi camera. New Orleans finest at their best!

I was afraid that if I took any pics like that they might confiscate my camera or arrest me.

I try to steer clear of the police most of the time, but especially around Mardi Gras as they tend to be overly stressed with zero humor...

Thanks. He went to every bakery he could find and carried on about thirthy cakes. His clothes will make it back mid-march.
