On June 2, 1905 Ms. Lottie Fair was born in Morgan City, LA. Her parents always encouraged her to do whatever she set her mind to. As a young girl, Lottie dreamt of becoming a Rockette and dancing on stage at the Radio City Music Hall. When she was 18 she decided that she needed to move to a bigger city and got on a bayou swamp boat and made her way to Baton Rouge. Once she arrived, in the pouring down rain, she found shelter at the nearby saloon named "Big Boys Lounge." When she walked in, she noticed a man standing in the back corner playing the jukebox. The next song that played was "When the Saints go Marching In" which was Lottie's all time favorite tune and she knew then that she had found Mr. Right! Ms. Lottie Fair is a widow living in
Hogwaller Senior Living in Baton Rouge, LA. Hogwaller Senior Living is a smaller community with 12 Residents, but Ms. Lottie is the most rambunctious one of all! This particular day was very important to Ms. Lottie because it was her 75th birthday. She decided that she was going to celebrate this birthday like none before, so she made herself 4 hot toddy's before the bus left for the parade.
This picture was taken June 2, 1980 during the Thieves of Sty Mardi Gras Extravaganza. The Hotsy Totsy marching band played "When the Saints go Marching In" and Ms. Lottie started doing a jig. She danced so much that that she realized maybe celebrating her 75th birthday like she was 21 may have not been the best idea.
