HATS!-III Dunedin, Florida: 17th Annual Mardi Gras 2008 Welcome back to Hats of Mardi Gras 2008 - Dunedin, Florida.

I have never seen a hat with a tail like that! It makes me wonder, which came first, Dr. Seuss or Mardi Gras? Yeah, you see it too... I mean, Mardi Gras is like The World Of Dr. Seuss... on booze. But don't get me wrong. It was a lot of fun, and everyone I saw was really enjoying themselves. That is a fine thing. My only regret about that evening was that it didn't occur to me to buy one of the hats, so I could wear it to work. :D

Okay, you know the drill, down below you find four more pictures of the goings on that I thought you just might enjoy. I have them setup to open in a new window when you click them. (So be sure to click on the small photos to see larger images in a new window.)

About the smaller photos below:
Top Left: Where do I even begin? This guy was riding around on this totally whacked out bicycle, not really dressed up for Mardi Gras, but THE HAT! What the heck? Yeah, it's a PICKLE! And if you click to see the large image, you can read that it says "Pickle Man" on his hat, and 'Chip's Paintless Dent Repair" on his bike. Yes, we are all selling something, aren't we. Now check out the little girl to his left... and the DOG (Yorkie?) in the stroller!

Top Right: The woman in the center of this photo really was something of an attention getter. We couldn't help but notice her. She seemed to have a uniquely elegant air about her... with a couple of interesting tattoos too! Then, when I checked out the image full size, I saw a surprise... the man looking out his window in the top left corner of the frame!

Bottom Left: This one booth had the neatest sculpted leather masks! Very cool! Click for a closer look, they really are wonderful!

Bottom Right: I love this shot, because every time I see these people, who had staked out places to watch the parade very early, I can't help but see them as 'behind bars'. And the folks eating their dinners there just add to the whole jail house thing for me. Meanwhile, if you look in the center of the picture, you may notice the stars of yesterday's main photo, before he got his Mardi Gras hat on. You also get to see the woman he is with from the front, if you were wondering about all those straps! :)
