Auld Lang Syne; New Years in New Orleans
The Rich Tapestry & Magnificent Pageant of Life is full on now, as the Last Minute Parking Wars end in a series of high speed reverses and driveway blocks.
The Metairietes are 'Woo-Hooing' their way into the Quarter, pushing strollers and pulling coolers;
The Just Arrived Gutter Punks have already evicted one of their own by locking him out of the van parked across the street, his lone ranting & shouting causing him to be driven off by the neighbor;
The Thin Wheeled Wrong Way Cyclists weave past, griping about 'the potholes' as if they had just now appeared as a personal inconvenience;
On the Levee, amateur pyrotechnicians pre-launch, while across St Claude they seem to be shooting at their own fire works, with hand guns and heavier artillery;
It's definitely New Years Eve in New Orleans.
Look here, for the sake of Auld Lang Syne.
Happy New Year!
