Down to a threesome this year, Gumbo deceased and Peter passing on a return engagement. That means one room, two beds, with Mark (the Big Me) sleeping on the couch. Hey, it's better than that first year when I had to sleep on the floor! We are back to the Staybridge this year after several years away (they bumped us a couple times), directly across from Mother's (since Gumbo's infamous boycott is over, we may get to grab a po' boy there, although Barry KEEPS reminding us that he's been barfing for the last week - thanks for the update!). The familiar cast of characters will be there: Mark/Lisa from Jersey, with friends Kenny/Kip from out West, and Bob M; the famous Shoe Ladies with their extended family entourage; Marshall and his sizable krewe; perhaps a Scarlett O'Hara sighting.
|Mark (smoothly) to Freaky Pete Murano, Shorty's guitar player, "You guys |
were really great when we saw you in Fairfield...and your girlfriend is hot."
