Mardi Gras 1980 Something …

Mardi Gras _ RTP _ 5_7_14   SFW

Not sure of the exact year that this image was taken at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.  That is the reason that I titled this 1980 something … I would guess that it was late in the 1980’s though.  I first went to Mardi Gras in New Orleans back in 1972 and it was really wide open back in those days … pretty much anything was allowed.  You could buy glass bottles of any drink that you wanted and most of that was Boone’s Farm Wine – Apple mostly.  I always thought that it was the worst thing I ever tasted, but I bet they went through a million bottles of the juice that year.  In fact, I do not know if that even make the stuff any more.  I always look at these images and wonder who these people could be and whatever happened to them, not that I knew any of these people.  I was always surprised what people would do whenever that had a camera pointed at them.  I guess that they where not worried that their parole or probation officer would ever run across any of their antics in print.  Thanks for looking and if you feel like sharing any of your Mardi Gras experiences ( that is fit for family reading ), please be my guest.  Please check back … Frank

PS – NO, this is not Gene Simmons and the original KISS guys … Or at least I hope not!!!
