Eight to Go: A Little Head Start

Tonight in frigid and blustery Idaho Falls, Idaho, the Snake River Montessori School is hosting its annual Mardi Gras gala. This is an event we attend most years--this year, the lovely Liza Raley is the emcee.

The event is a great annual fundraiser, a lot of fun, and a chance to dress up and be seen dressed up (a rare event if you know me).

But not this year. This year, the table we're sitting with for the Mardis Gras festivities chose the "Parrothead" theme. This is just a fancy (God bless you, Jimmy Buffett) term for "socks optional." It's also good practice for the days I'll be spending on the flats in the Bahamas starting eight long days from now.

I'm lovin' it.

Bonefish fact of the day: The bonefish's Latin name Albula vulpes translates into English as "white fox."
