Shreveport photos

I can't believe it's been a week since I was in Shreveport, La. celebrating Mardi Gras. The bus ride was great. We were in a new bus, lots of leg room, comfy seats, and cup holders on the back of the seats. My traveling partner ended up getting the "crud" that is going around in these parts, so I went alone. Two of my sorority sisters were on the trip also, so I had someone to keep me out of trouble. Here's a few snaps of the trip.

First up is our tour guide, Hassie. She referred to herself as the hat lady because she wore a different hat each day. She was a hoot.

Our first stop was at the building where the old Louisiana Hayride radio program originated. Elvis greeted us as we drove up.

I'm standing on the stage in the very spot that Elvis stood taking a snap of the arena. The building is beautiful.

Next up is the parade and a couple of the floats.

Sunday we had a step on guide who toured us around the city. This is a snap of the back of the jacket she wore.

And last, the beads I came home with. Well, some of them, since I gave some away this week! It was a great trip. I'm ready for the next big one, Mount Rushmore in June.

Oh that looks like such fun! Wish I could have been there too. That's quite the collection of beads! Love them. I still have mine from our trip to New Orleans
