It's the Monday before Mardi Gras, a school holiday in parts of Louisiana, including our local schools. Most government offices and businesses are open today.
I'm watching grandson Lucas, while his parents work. This is a good thing and we'll spend most of the day running errands of various sorts. We need to go to the DMV, the grocers and a metal supply shop. I need a stick of half-inch square tubing for a project.
It's time to pull on the socks and get started.
