Mardi Gras

This past week Flamingo celebrated Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday. While it was nothing like the celebrations in New Orleans it was still neat to see. They had a parade that we went to with some friends we made here, which also happen to be our neighbors here. Wolf and Kathleen. The people in the parade were throwing candy and beads. I lifed my shirt up, but didn’t get any beads. I bet Jane would have.

They also came over one night to play Yahtzee with us.
