Doing My Laundry … Outside of Mobile.

As I left my motel room this morning and headed down Route 90 to New Orleans, I kept a look-out for a coin-operated laundromat. Turns out it didn’t take me much time. I’m now doing my laundry at a strip-mall laundry facility with free wi-fi … recovering from last night’s festivities. Today, I will hopefully take Route 90 all the way to New Orleans … going through towns like Biloxi, Mississippi. But my friend Eli Ackerman has advised me to get to New Orleans by 3 or 4 p.m. at the latest … Mardi Gras may not happen until Tuesday, but today is Samedi Gras, and there’s a great parade going on called Endymion. I may have to reluctantly take the Interstate. Will play it by ear …

    What a name for such a parade, Endymion, the mortal most handsome man, who slept for ever to avoid aging. Is it a metaphor for new Orleans? Hope Selene will revive the City from the grips of Neptune.

    Happy trails and safe trip home. It was great to make your acquaintance in The Everglades. We’re off North in a few minutes, and I have to turn back into serious minded librarian. Ack!
