Happy Mardi Gras! Enjoy!
I don't remember celebrating Mardi Gras when I was a kid -- no king cakes, just the impending austerity of Lent, and ashes, and adding to our forehead ashes if they were too faint, by running to the ash tray and adding more ashes.
We feasted on Hot Cross Buns all thru Lent-- some fast, eh? And we always walked to the Botanical Gardens after Easter Mass.
