New Years in Mobile

Moon Pie Over Mobile: Yes -- that's what we're having in Mobile tonight. We can get a piece of the world's largest moon pie and then an electric one will rise over our city at midnight. I can't decide what I think about this. Mobile's Mardi Gras parades are the only ones that I know of where they throw moon pies and now we get to have a large electric one. Yippee!

Happy New Year's everyone.

I got a moon pie thrown at me during the Ocean Springs Marti Gras parade last year. It was my first ever moon pie.

We stayed home for New Year's eve. My entire neighborhood was lit up by fireworks of the home variety. It was D-day from about 6PM until 1 AM. Lily and I were running around in our pj's searching for fireworks. All the trees kept getting in the way of being able to see what we were hearing.

I don't think we could get more redneck than that if we tried.

Happy New Year.

Do they shoot guns off at midnight on New Year's in Ocean Springs?

I can't stand moon pies -- I don't know where Mobile got the obsession from.

Shooting guns in the air is stupid. Love moon pies. I spent New Year's Eve and Day watching the Twilight Zone marathon on SciFi.
