2018.02.01 Birthday Party

Last updated: None
D'Arcy and I were invited to the Broadmoor district in New Orleans to Shannon Vale's house to celebrate Mary's birthday. Mary is a friend of Bridget, Shannon's daughter.

We got there and we sat out on the front gallery talking politics for a while because that's how D'Arcy and Shannon met in the late seventies in Toronto at the Libertarian Party. D'Arcy ran as a Libertarian in many elections.

We went inside to meet the guests then we went to the backyard. For the birthday cake they served two birthday cakes. They were king cakes. King cake is served mainly around Mardi Gras time. There is usually a little baby found in the cake.

We went back inside and D'Arcy played his guitar and Bridget played her Violin. They finished the night with a new board game.

Check out the Cockatoo that's on D'Arcy's shoulder.

It was a great evening.
