Friend and neighbor Dora turned 50 at the end of January, so husband Jeff and the kids threw her a Mardi Gras party at the Black Forest Community Center. Jeff has a band of mostly fellow Agilent employees, called Pulpit Fiction (at least for now, the band name has gone through many humorous iterations). Jeff's the lead guitarist and vocalist to the left of the drums. Above is "Iko Iko," and you can follow the links to renditions of "Johnny B. Goode," a medley of "Birthday" and "Bring Me Down," an interlude where daughter Cassie introduces mom and everyone sings "Happy Birthday," the band plays "Short Skirt Long Jacket," the band plays "Thank You (falettin me be mice elf agin)," and the band plays an excerpt of Jeff's original "Intelligent Design."
A fun evening and lots of funny costumes.
