On the twenty seventh of January after shooting the afternoon parades this writer had the fortune of meeting some parade goers from Panama City Beach, Florida. These fine American Legionnaires had rented the upstairs room at Veet’s bar in Mobile, Alabama and extended an invitation to join them.

Since it was raining and they had a balcony it seemed expedient to join them for the evening rather than dodging raindrops in the street. It also provided, a dry, comfortable place to wait for the Pharaohs, Order of Hebe, Conde Explorers krewes to parade past.
