The Imposter Tour #57: Duck Commander / Duck Dynasty – West Monroe, LA


Our next stop was the Duck Commander / Duck Dynasty Warehouse in West Monroe, Louisiana. This is something we’ve wanted to do for a while. Give our videos to the Robertson Family. We desired to give it to them personally. Short on time, but in hopes of catching a member of the family at their warehouse we hurried on our way.

As we pulled out of the campground we saw a terrible aftermath of an accident. A fuel tanker truck drove off the exit ramp and onto the road below. Praise YAH there wasn’t a vehicle below as it crashed! We do not know details if the passenger of the truck was injured or fatal.

This was not the only accident we encountered on the highway! It is very important to pray for safety and protection while on the roads and highways. Even if you are simply leaving your home to drive a short distance. Always pray for safety before you set out.

We have seen many accidents along the highway as we travel. Here is another. This motor home busted up like a cardboard box. Our prayers go out to the family of all the passengers who lost their life. There were no survivors.

2 miles from the Duck Commander warehouse, right off the exit we had to stop. Brother Danny was having problems with his truck and had to pull over at the Walmart parking lot. We were so close! 5 minutes short from arrival we would not have made it in time for the business hours. We arrived when they were closed. Still determined, we put our DVDs in a brown paper bag, wrote a note to the Robertson Family and slid on the door. If any of the Duck Commander crew is reading this, we forgot to include Jase’s name on the letter!

We got a group selfie outside John Luke & Willie’s Snow Cone stand.

Until next time! We are going home and getting ready for Passover!

The Imposter Tour #56: New Orleans Mardi Gras Parade

We are so thankful, that we had this opportunity to do some street witnessing down in the French Quarter of New Orleans. One time while we were on Royal street, when we were fixing to leave, we noticed lots and lots of people were starting to gather in the street. Brother Michael walked down that way to find out what was going on! To our surprise, we learned from this couple in the picture, that 3,000 people were about to be in a marching Mardi Gras parade! Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday was weeks away and that is how we learned that the Carnival seasons last for quite a few weeks. They also shared with us that anyone and everyone was more than welcome to line up and walk the parade. We didn’t stick around to be in no parade nor did we stay to watch the parade. However, we did manage to snap a few pictures before the parade started!

Look at all these people about to walk in a Mardi Gras parade. Just think this parade didn’t offer any big fancy floats but people were very eager and excited to walk. This crowd of people was like that for many blocks, as far as we could see! All these people, and this is not even a float parade on Mardi Gras day! Wow!!!!

Another view of the street line up for the walking Mardi Gras parade on Royal Street in New Orleans.

This man took a selfie with Brother Michael. I think he was part of the marching band.

These people were very happy and colorful. I didn’t get around to asking them what they thought of Mardi Gras but from the looks of it, they are enjoying themselves:
This group we managed to take a quick snap, these are all men dressed up like women:

People didn’t care that it was raining. No rain was going to stop this walking parade:
This group was called, Krewe of Cork! Took me a while to realize that this was ‘cork’ as in wine! Mardi Gras like many other pagan fertility festivals, allows people to be fully intoxicated. As you can see, they are filling up getting toasted right there in the middle of the street.  Good thing they are walking I guess huh?

I think this man was also in the Krewe of Cork group. He might have been the king of the cork, I don’t really know off hand but we did manage to snap a picture of him. Seems like another happy guy:



Well time for us to head on out of here! Glad, we got to share with you all at least one Mardi Gras Parade from New Orleans. Wasn’t planned nevertheless you get a glimpse of how crowded the Mardi Gras parades down in New Orleans get.

The Imposter Tour #55: Hibernia St. Patrick’s Parade & 5k run in Biloxi, MS

Just as Mardi Gras is not just a single day celebration, St. Patrick’s Day is also a multi-week celebration observed as such in the Southern States. Besides people eating corned beef and cabbage, there are various street parties, parades along with other activities. Talk about perfect timing? Since we were in the area, we decided to make a few unplanned tour stops!

St. Patrick Day parades are just like the Mardi Gras parade. Plenty of people, loud music, various items thrown along with beads galore. Yet we learned that during the St. Patrick day parades people also throw carrots, potatoes and entire heads of cabbage!

We were on the streets during the Hibernia St. Patrick’s Day Parade & 5K run in Biloxi Mississippi. First time ever going to any St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  As the parade was fixing to pass where we were, we put our material next to a pole. Whoever felt led to take one they were. The rain held off which was great as we didn’t want our material to get wet!
The parade started. Here are some pictures of the parade. We found a parking spot, close to the Hard Rock Casino there in Biloxi Mississippi.

 


The bag pipes:
I guess these two guys represent St. Patrick and a Leprechaun:
This was a very big parade with streets lined with people. Glad the rain held off until later in the evening.
This float was extremely long:
We decided to stay around for a while after the parade ending to talk to people.

This guy was showing off all his beads he got from the parade.

After the parade, had ended, Sister Linda needed to take a real pit stop. So, we went into the Mardi Gras Museum and let us use the restroom. While we were in their we took a quick peep at the very fancy displays:
This is the piece one of the king’s wore. While looking at the huge detailed train, I am thus reminded of how YashaYahu saw Yahuwah’s train filled the entire Hekal:
“In the year that Sovereign Uzziyahu died, I saw Yahuwah sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the Hekal.” -Yashayahu 6:1

What a wonderful and joyful sight that will be to see Yahushua on HIS majestic throne.

Brother Danny and Sister Linda took a quick moment to feel how the King and Queens chair feels:
I don’t know if that is how all the King and Queen’s chair feel, but this was the top of the line comfy chair that had a lot of padding that was in all the right places. Well Shalom for now, see you all at our next tour stop!

The Imposter Tour #54: Menge Flea Market #2 – Pass Christian, MS

Our next stop was our Second time at the Menge Flea Market. Wow, what a different two weeks can make in how busy this flea market gets. I truly believe the people that have told us that in the summer months Menge Flea Market is extremely busy. All spots for vendors are taken. What is not to like about this flea market? This is a perfect spot for vendors and the bargain shoppers. Close to the beaches, right off the highway, yet nestled back off the road with camping, food and even live band! This is a very nice place. We were thrilled to get to set up here again for a second time.  The only issue we have at this flea market is that you have to reserve your spot for the entire weekend! Sure, one can purchase their spot on Friday (which we did both times). However, we normally like to rest on the Sabbath ourselves! Nevertheless, we did set up but will not buy nor sell anything on the 7th Day Sabbath! Here are some pictures:

We gave away 65 DVD’s here at the Flea Market! Very good as we do not force anyone to take anything. We simple set up our booth and make ourselves available. All those who are interesting will stop and ask us questions. Here are some pictures:

Brother Danny and Sister Linda setting up some DVD’s!
Here they are waiting to talk to anyone that is interested:


Flea Markets always have interesting finds to say the least. While out stretching our legs, we found this huge 10 feet tall Sir Lancelot.

Shalom everyone, see you at our next tour stop!

The Imposter Tour #53: Sea Horse Parade -Bay St. Louis, MS

National Imposter tour hits the streets of, Bay St. Louis Mississippi. We were there at the Sea Horse Parade! Such a beautiful little city right on the water. This parade was to start at 5 P.M. but due to the possibility of rain, they started one hour later at 6 p.m. Seems the closer we get to Fat Tuesday the more wilder and wilder the parade watchers along with the people in the parade become. While we were trying to find a popular spot to set up our spot, we overheard some parade riders to make sure they drink all the jello shots and this was 2 hours prior to the start of the parade.
This parade sure was different in that, this was a golf-cart parade! Each golf-cart was decorated with all sorts of themes. Some was the popular super heroes, others were like skulls and bones, Mardi Gras themed, pop cans, shark themed, Spiderman and Batman along with many more!


The pictures didn’t take to good because it was so dark out. However, we did witness to some people and they took the free material. Since this parade was right next to the water, there were thousands and thousands of biting gnats. Never seen such a thing before like that. Nevertheless, it was well worth it to those who received the Besorah!

Shalom for now! See you all at our next tour stop.
