It wouldn't be a party without some music and dancing, eh? The band, Zydecopious, was fabulous! They are a real Zydeco band! There is no way to sit still when they are playing! I mean, I had to get up while I was still eating to dance! Usually, you wouldn't be able to pull me away from my Crab Cakes! Before the night was over, a couple of Hillsborough guys were playing the frottoir, a type of washboard, with them. Tupelo's owner, Matt Carroll, was playing the tambourine, and my husband, Randy, was playing the spoons. Yes, I would say that a good time was had in Hillsborough on Mardi Gras!
Switching topics... I want to tell you about an Easter basket contest that you really shouldn't miss. I heard it about through one of the One-World-One-Heart participants. If you go over to see this basket at Notes & News From Nancy and leave a comment, you'll be entered in her drawing. She's a very talented artist, making beautiful rabbits, Santa's, chicks, cats, you name it! I'd be thrilled to just get the rabbit that she's including in this basket!
And don't forget to leave a comment to enter my drawing for the quilled cardinal pin. I've had a good time visiting the other participants' blogs in this One-World-One-Heart event - it's really been an experience to see what other artists are doing, and to see just how generous everyone is! Somebody commented that "it's all about connection." It is that and it's also about learning about others and visiting blogs that we wouldn't even know about if not for Lisa and this great idea of hers. Ok, I'm done...
