I'm going to be dressed as a monk in a parade on Sunday (welcome to New Orleans). I'd show you my belt buckle but it's just a knot in a rope.
Plenty of ways to fancy up a rope knot

That would be a cincture.

I tried it without, but I found he appeared in a much greater state of holy peace with the cigar. :D

Pics or it didn't happen.

The photoshop version above is good but not good enough!

I'll have Mrs. King take a picture on parade day. We're members of The Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc. I don't have a pocket in my robe for my phone so if I forget when we leave the house, it still happened. Someone will capture us in video:



We've been proud members of the Krewe of Joan of Arc for seven years now, ushering in the Mardi Gras season.

The problem with these videos is that they only capture the teensiest part of what it is like to experience this parade, either as a krewe member or as an onlooker. Everyone is a participant. I remember when this episode happened. I may be in this video. I'm a monk in a black robe. Mrs. King is a monk in a red robe, if you see either of us. This is the point where the French Consul toasts the krewe as we make our way through the French Quarter and celebrate St. Joan of Arc's birthday. Beginning of Mardi Gras and a newish tradition that is going strong for 12 years this year. Culture grows and blooms in New Orleans and we are proud to be a part of it.



Hey doll, howyadoin?

What's this have to with belt buckles? Nothing, except that I found my monk robe's belt today. Don;'t get too excited, it's just a black piece of rope. I'm a black monk, nothing showy. I don't go in for ostentatious cinctures.

Have a great Twelfth Night, everyone. That's January 6 to you. In New Orleans, it's a real holiday. The bars will be full because everyone will be out celebrating Twelfth Night and it is the first day of Mardi Gras season. Two parades roll tomorrow night. We'll be eating King Cake after tomorrow until Mardi Gras Day.

Laissez les bon temps roulez! Keep your belt secure.
