Mardi Gras Weekend Next Week

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — If you are not already packing your suitcase in preparation to head to New Orleans for Mardi Gras 2015, you need to make up your mind quickly. Next weekend is Mardi Gras weekend. This weekend I am waiting on my daughter to tell me what 3 parades she and her crew are marching in on this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I might already be tired by next weekend. This picture below which I saw this morning has me absolutely ready to go to the French Quarter for some Mardi Gras, Big Easy food.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME MARDI GRAS?

Ready for Fat Tuesday?

Ready for Fat Tuesday?

BOSCOVILLE (Ferdie Werdie) — I try to be politically correct so that the ladies on ‪#Twitter and #‎Facebook‬ do not get upset with me. However, I cannot be silent about the female referee in the #LosAngelesClippers vs. #ClevelandCavaliers game that just ended. I do not believe in #female referees in the ‪#‎NBA‬. There ya’ go; I know you ladies are gettin’ mad now. The game was a ‪#‎bitchFEST‬ tonight. I think that the girl referee threw 6 or 7 technical fouls just on the Clippers, changing the whole “tenor” of the game. If a Clipper just looked at her “hard” or rather roughly, she called a technical, with one Clipper even being ejected from the game. She should be home cooking or washing dishes, not on an @NBA court. Sorry, ladies. Do not be mad! I’m just saying!

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Also, I am sure that many fans are still following the news about Bobbi Kristina Brown. She had opened her eyes twice, and showed slight improvement, according to earlier reports. Of course, the world knows that she was found unconscious last weekend in a bathtub very similarly to how her mother, Whitney Houston, was in 2012. The circumstances are eerie!! As of this writing, she is still in an induced coma. Her family had been advised to expect the worst, and reports are leaking in that the final word is imminent.

Whitney and Bobbi.

Whitney and Bobbi.

In the latest about her condition,

Previous reports were coming out that Bobbi Kristina was showing signs of life. Requests for prayers from her family and friends (#PrayforBK on Twitter) may have been heeded from BK’s many fans. I have seen many tweets and posts about people around the world praying for Bobbi Kristina.

Here in this tweet Pete Carroll tries to explain his bone-headed play in the Super Bowl.

Why, Warren? Why?

Mardi Gras in New Orleans

BOSCOVILLE (Gazette) — By the way, this is Mardi Gras weekend in New Orleans. The best of the parades and the best of the Balls are this weekend… culminating in Fat Tuesday. I am worn down tonight; but I am going to kick things back off in the morning.

Yes, this picture is becoming one of my favorites. I need to find this poster and hang it on my wall. WHERE CAN I FIND THIS POSTER?? I want it.

I just read something that reminded me that the OSCARS are tonight. I might come back online later and list my choices before the broadcast.

Coach Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans needs to be fired. This team has been in last place of their division for the last three years. Does owner Tom Benson have his head stuck up his buttockal area?
