Tombstone Tuesday: Mardi Gras Edition

In January 2009, we took a family trip to New Orleans. One day, we rode the Canal Street trolley. There are several cemeteries at the end of the line. We briefly toured one, but rain was hampering the experience.

Before boarding a return trolley, several members of our group wandered off to the little coffee/ice cream/"tobacco supply" shop next to the cemeteries. While waiting for the others, I turned the corner of the store and wandered in to another cemetery. I found this little fellow waiting for someone:

Something about this frog makes me sad. I can't put my finger on it, just a vibe.

However, I can't leave this post on such a depressing note, so I will tell you that this guy is sitting on the other side of the Yrle crypt:

Laissez les bon temps rouler, y'all!
