Random New Orleans Snaps

Today's my last day of pics from NOLA, and they're just a random collection, no real theme.

First up is Jonathan, our Vampire Tour guide - he really got into the part, doing accents and such while narrating the various "vampire" tales throughout the tour:
On the walk home from the tour, I saw this sign and had to take a picture of it. It spoke to me. lol
Here I am on Bourbon St. with two miniature horses, Autumn and Rowdy. Autumn's the one in front. She's going to have a little baby horse in 7 months! Anyway, this just goes to prove that you really never know what you'll see on Bourbon St.Here I am at the end of the night and my bead haul. I know you can't see them that well in the picture, but I even ended up with a flashing LED fleur-de-lis. Big shout out to the Thoth Krewe! Thanks for the beads! (That's about 20+ pounds of beads, btw. I was happy to take them off.)
Speaking of beads, a lot of the trees on St. Charles look like this one year round. St. Charles is the start of many of the Mardi Gras parade routes and also one of the prettiest streets around. Some of the homes there would just knock your socks off.Okay, that's it for the NOLA pics. Time to get back to the business of writing to make up for all the fun that was had! Seriously. I need to get some writing done. I feel slackerish.

  10. The only thing I showed to get those beads was my fabulous smile. I may have also mentioned Hotrod was a Tulane Alumni. That seemed to go over well.
