I had an e-mail notification of a comment by Glenn Meche, "Are they just waiting for a parade?" which might show up here later. The short answer is yes. But the 2nd photo in this post is actually from Friday, when die-hard Emdymion goers were setting up camp for the Saturday night parade. I thought it was more than a little problem that serious thunderstorms were predicted for Saturday. Didn't hear of any deaths by lightning, and the parade rolled closed to on time, Saturday night. From my point of view, this camping/land-claiming behavior is overly obsessive, especially since everybody who wanted to see the parade was able to come out right before it rolled, without risking their lives. But the top photo was going to be the whole post, until I spied that same trailer truck, boasting about "small roof repairs", in the abandoned parking lot, across from the Rouses on N. Carrollton. thanks, sp
I agree SP. When we were young, we'd go out there a few hours before the parade and never had a problem finding a spot. Today, folks are spending the night out there, spray painting the grass marking territory and stuff...it's ridiculous!
Hi bc, I know it's all in the spirit of fun-- why else would people go through with all these rituals? but when they (Bobby Breck, Margaret Orr, etc.) were talking about lightning and possible tornadoes, it kind of makes you question their sanity. maybe we've all been through so many actual traumas that it's difficult to distinguish the need for survival from the need for tradition. I loved your photos of Mardi Gras especially the Indians with the little kids. thanks, sp

Note to Houston Roofing Repair, I realize you are attempting some advertising yourself, but hello anyway. Putting up a monstrous black-lettered sign on the side of huge white trailer truck, and then parking it in a very conspicuous spot, was pretty creative advertising, I think. sp
LOL, you've got spunk!
thanks Glenn, yes, on a good day (and this is one... it's Friday). This has nothing to do with small roof repairs, but if you happen to be at home for the Fox8 news at 9pm tonight, Chris Rose is scheduled to have a "60-second interview" with Cory MacLauchlin, out in the sun on Bourbon Street in front of a Lucky Dog vendor stand. It was really wonderful seeing Cory this week, just glowing with well-deserved success, and me glowing with the continuous-shot setting, in the front row. Quite a healing boost. Even though Confederacy of Dunces may not have been one of your favorites back in the 80s, Cory's premise is that J.K. Toole is one of the greats of American literature, not strictly a regional writer. thanks, sp
I will note your feed to maintain up to date with your hereafter updates. cheers
It's so important to have a quality Houston roofing company to fix/repair your roofing needs. I also have one on hand. Especially during storm season!
For some reason, I expected a picture of a roof having some small holes and some people making some temporary fixes on them. Oh, and I do agree that it's a pretty good advertising strategy to have something as big as that trailer moving around a community with big bold letters that say small roof repairs.
This is a good work i ever seen before hope u post another.Metal Roofing Brisbane
