From: "Brandon Richard"
Subject: My First Mardi Gras
Here's a story you might find amusing....
I went to my first Mardi Gras in 1995. I attended Auburn University at the time and there just happened to be a math conference at LSU the same time as Mardi Gras. Since this was a big regional conference, the school paid for the trip.

On Fat Tuesday, our little group from Auburn had some time off, so we went to New Orleans. I was both amazed and excited. Being bisexual, I was in my element (except for the fact that no one at school knew I was). After getting a little toasty, I was more than willing to show ANYTHING for beads-I wanted beads! I came up to a woman on the balcony and asked for beads. Her response was, "Let me see something." So I dropped my shorts and am now standing on the street in my blue and white polka dot boxers (with the rest of my fellow graduate students shocked I have gone this far). The woman wanted to see more. In a split second response, and realizing that if I'm going to show myself off, I want to do it in full glory, I responded "UP OR DOWN?" A big grin came across her face and of course she said, "Up." So I excused myself to underneath the balcony and started jacking off. As I start up, people come from everywhere with cameras trying to take pictures. I respond to them that this is not a photo shoot-but oh well. As I finish getting hard, I step out into the street and show off my wares. And got some pretty damn good beads for the task too.

After just totally embarassing the people I'm with, they drag me away kicking and screaming and return to LSU. I would LOVE to return with some friends of mine and return to My "element" with[out] worrying about who I'm with. I have some people who are interested as well, but are wondering if there are any rooms still let and about how much they would cost? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
-Brandon K. Richard,

Subject: I Found You
Rip and Marsha, What a FABULOUS Web-Site. I've been On-Line for about 2 weeks and this is the most fun I've had yet! You might remember me. I'm Miss Fly's friend Bob from Michigan. I worked for Lee the first three years he had the bar and visit him frequently. If you see his tired ass, please tell him I said hello. We need to up-date him and get him on-line. Maybe next time I see him (Oct 4,5,6) I'll talk him into it. PLEASE keep up the GREAT work.
