About This Image

The king and queen rode together in this parade. That often is not the case.

Thanks. It's true. A night dog to me would have been a drunkard who stayed out all night. Now I know better.

thanks, Dud. this is very interesting and "all new" to me. Amazing how many things going on the world that people have no idea about. Suppose we have things here that you would not have heard of too : ) Interesting

There are many reasons. I will list a few: 1. Separate floats which makes them an entities unto themselves and more throws to catch. 2. The queen might not be on a float at all but at a party waiting to be toasted by the king at a reviewing stand. This is true of Rex, King of Mardi Gras. By the way, they do not ask who is King of Rex but rather who is Rex this year. He is usually a social elite. 3. Unforunately, some queens do not ride or get toasted. They are just at the ball. This means no one in the public gets to see them in all of their regalia.

oh, what's the reason for them not riding together at other times, Dud?
