I know that yesterday was Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras and today starts the 40 days of Lent. And I know that many pleasures of life should be fore sworn this time of year. And I know Zydeco would have been more appropriate earlier in the week. But, and you knew there was a "but" coming, when Michael Doucet and BeauSoleil start playing its a good time for everyone to dance no matter what the season.
My own introduction to Zydeco came from one of the old timers Queen Ida and the Bon Temps Band.
Come on now a little toe tapping won't hurt to ease our way into Lent - you can't just go cold turkey.
And mille grazie to my own dear Dora for reminding me how cool Zydeco can be.
