My wife visited an old friend who is also our daughter's mother-in-law. A widow in her eighties, a bit older than us.
In an old people's home where they are still sort of independent.
I looked Fat Tuesday up in Wikipedia. In Australia we seem to celebrate the day just as Pancake Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday) which is maybe a bit more low-key than in America....Not sure.
Anyway they enjoyed their pancakes together, along with the rest of the oldies.

My first trip to Nawlins was on my 18th birthday on Fat Tuesday. Boys I tell ya, I saw more titties on that one day than I have my entire life since! Never will I go to NO on fat Tuesday again. It's literally a sea of drunken people. We got so drunk on those Damn Hurricanes we couldn't find our car till morning

I used to have a car like that, too.

You can make whisky in a reflux still, you can make vodka in a potstill,

Lol! I got one of them keychain beepers now days. We was about to give up and call it stolen then realized we were standing in front of it. The entire city of New Orleans smelled like garbage, pot, puke and Whisky to me.

You would think with a million people coming to fat Tuesday that city would put out some porta johns. Thats what i remember most, hunting somewhere, anywhere to pee.
