Mardi Gras –> IOP 2014

Wow. It’s been a while. Again. So here we go.

As usual, most of this is just a compilation of everything that’s gone on bookface or the tweeters. But we like to have it all put together in one place.

Let’s start off with the NO PARKING signs in our neighborhood that needed some sprucing up. Sadly, there was never any mention of it in our monthly neighborhood newsletter.

And we went to Disneyworld with them, thanks to Nate and Nanci. It was their first time there in FOREVER.

Then it was time for Jazz Fest again, again working with Munck Mix. Flava Flav played drums for a little while during Public Enemy’s set.

Christina Aguilera had a couch that no one else was allowed to sit on.

And Nate became the newest member of the Rebirth Brass Band. If I’m not mistaken, it’s actually him featured on the Rebirth beer cans and taps.

Fast forward to June, and it was time for Rose to take her neurology boards in Nashville. I hung out with the Dukes of Hazzard while she took her test.

Then we met some creatures you’d expect to meet only in Nashville.

For my birthday we were going to see Kurt Braunohler as the last stop on his “Jet Ski for Goats” trip (you can read more about that, and until September 12 contribute to it, here). But the day before I planned to leave Nashville for NOLA, I saw that they were gonna be stopping at a place in Tennessee, and it happened to kinda be on the way home, so I stopped and saw the show there too, because it also featured Kyle Kinane, who wasn’t going to be at the New Orleans show.

Then for my birthday we saw Kurt and Kristen Schaal at One Eyed Jacks, and then went to the Plus One Show at the Hi Ho.

A few weeks later it was time again for Isle of Palms. I hadn’t been in like 3 years, and a handful of people were going, then more people were going, so it became a thing. A very fun thing.

This surprised turtle was on the wall behind me in the restaurant we ate at on our last day there. I decided to take a picture with it, with almost as much shock as he had.

Here’s the big ol’ group of us before we all left to go out separate ways like journey.

This house seriously looked like a crab.

Well. That about catches us up through most of June. I’ll post sooner next time, as a summary of the big trip we’re currently on.
