*sigh* I’m trying to be like a good neighbor..I really am but, this right here is driving me.
What is this you say?
Well, it’s a truck float…or a soon to be truck float.
Whenever they get started.
My lovely neighbors are breaking all kind of zoning codes having this thingamajig back here.
We have one of the tightest zoning codes in the city here in “the park” and this thingamabob ain’t supposed to be back here…
they’re supposed to have it at Louisa and Almonaster.
Where the other truck floats are waiting to be worked on.
For the folks that aren’t from here,
on Mardi Gras day, after Zulu and Rex hit the streets,
the truck floats follow…which makes it pretty much an all day affair.
Cuz, they have lots of truck floats,
rolling all behind one another, blowing their horns
and tossing lots of stuff.
Ya catch more stuff from the truck floats than from Rex and Zulu combined on that day.
Families and friends usually get a truck float for themselves,
decorate it, dress in their costumes and have a wonderful time up there.
We’re planning to do a truck float ourselves…maybe next year(note to Oracle and SIL)
Part of me wants to call the “po-pos” and tell them they have to move this monstrosity
but, I actually want to see how it turns out.
Aww what the heck, it’s Mardi Gras time,
On March 8th, it rolls out anyway.
Here’s a good clip of some truck floats rolling on Mardi Gras day..
