Nan and Clyde Massey, longtime supporters of the Krewe of Barkus & Meow, are also charter members of Blanc et Noir

Not only did Nan Massey respond quickly to the B & N membership drive (see an earlier post), she has sent her check for $90 this week, which includes son Andrew in the march.

Because of Barkus & Meow, I've been working with Nan and Clyde over the past 5 years. The Masseys ha've hired me to tell stories and lead the dancing at their annual party, a shindig overflowing with food and drink and vibey people. She has hosted the party variously at her house, at Java Junction and Stone's Throw Cafe. She has also included the excellent trio called Lip Service - Barbara Jarrell. Sandra Odom, Cookie Garner - in the entertainment.

The Masseys remind us that Carnival aficionados are frequently members of several organizations. And the check reminded me of their generosity.

Merci beaucoup, Nan and Clyde!
