An Edict from the Queen
Greetings to my loyal subjects!
I can hardly wait to welcome you back to New Orleans. My own children are drifting in at various times on Friday, so I will stay home from 4:00 PM. So if any of y’all are arriving early, wander on over to 921 Chartres, # 9, ph: 595-5044. If you ordered commerative t-shirts, you can pick them up then.
TUESDAY: At 10:00, the Queen will open the door & the gate. Coffee, juice, bourbon milk punch, & King Cake will be served. At 11:00, the Queen will be ensconced in her Royal Chariot. This will allow time for the usual accidents such as the banner falling in the fish pond, the banner poles breaking, etc.
For a final big splurg the Queen has hired a marching band who will arrive at 11: 30, & I don’t want to waste a minute of the music while you fart around with the cart or going to the potty etc. We start as soon as the band arrives.
Since we have a band, this year we will reverse our route, heading down to the lower Quarter to “hail “ people we know; ( the Richardsons on Bourbon, the Ransdells on St.Phillip, etc.) If you get lost from us, we’ll be on Canal St. on the neutral ground in front of the Marriot Hotel when Rex turns on to Canal. After Rex we wander down Chartres back to the Condo at 921 Chartres for a respit & then take off for more toodling in the Quarter. Around 6:00, return to the condo for a bite to eat.
I have a lovely lady.Mary, who will be here to open the door for any Krewe members who need a “time out”. Wear your Krewe bracelet. It’s your I.D. for Mary.
LE BONNE TEMPS ROULE !!!
