Hey! Throw me something, Mister! On second thought, maybe not...
All types of Mardi Gras parades roll through Shreveport but this one is a little different. It's a photo essay of the portable toilets that line the parade route used by the two big Krewes, Centaur and Gemini. You'll find them along Clyde Fant Parkway, Shreveport Barksdale Highway and East Kings Highway.
On the bright side -- they don't reek. Red River Blog Jam got close for some of these pics and not a single fetid odor did we sniff. Perhaps the malodorous rendering plant could use a couple of these to contain their stink.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
