I was born, raised, and still live in New Orleans. I started going to parades and watched them from sitting on my Dad's shoulders before I could walk. I've been in Girl Scout parades, high school parades, St. Patrick's parades, Mardi Gras parades, on dance teams in parades and just about any loosely organized group who deemed it necessary to parade. I just can't help myself. I love parades.
I attended Loyola of the South here in New Orleans so I wouldn't be far from a parade.

I spent 20+ years working for and retired from AT&T. I have worked and lived in New York City, Madison, New Jersey, Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama returning home for the big parade every year--Mardi Gras.

I kissed a very handsome stranger in a parade who asked me to meet him at the end, and I didn't because that's not what nice girls do! Of course kissing strangers in a parade for a paper flower was OK--this is New Orleans and it was Mardi Gras. I always wondered what would have happened if I had gone to meet him. Now, I'm glad I didn't because that's how Rescued By A Kiss starts with her going to meet him at the end of the parade.(less)

Fireworks, Forensics and Felonies by Colleen Mooney
"I seldom read Cozy Mysteries, but I must say Colleen Mooney’s Fireworks, Forensics and Felonies may help change my mind. What a great story! The writing is tight, the dialog realistic and the mystery plays out in a satisfying, logical fashion.

At these parties, the cake is sliced, everyone gets a piece and whoever gets the hidden doll in their piece, must give the next party. Parties are expected to happen weekly for the entire Mardi Gras season. This is only about six weeks.”
