Though I’ve been
To New Orleans
A couple times
I’ve never been
To Mardi Gras…
That would seem
Like something
For a “bucket list”…
But though I agree
With the philosophy
Laissez les bons temps rouler
I know there are other
And for me…better ways
To let the good times roll…
Perhaps some day I’ll go
But it’s still not on my list…
I can enjoy NOLA on any day
More than a city…it’s a state of mind

      Thank you, Suzanne. Last time I was there, I thoroughly enjoyed the jazz performers playing for donations on the square. Gladly made one. And the gumbo was to die for. NOLA appeals to all the senses.
