Maude-Patty is in New Orleans.
She is celebrating!
She is with a group who are partying.
They are from West Seattle … or maybe Des Moines.
She is feeling happy and maybe a little bit tipsy.
She’s hearing jazz, horns, bands and trombones (she especially likes the trombones), and conversation.
Next, she starts dancing and orders another drink.
Maude is drinking with a young fella named Bubba, who loves shrimp.
He’s from the Bubba Shrimp Company!
Next, the parade starts.
She will demonstrate zydeco dancing, and someone will throw beads.
Her hair is in a pom-pom.
Bubba gave it to her.
She probably wears it every day.
