MARDI GRAS ON MAIN QUEEN
Rhonda Taylor Insurance
| A fun little fictitious tale.... Rhonda was born in the back of a piano bar on Bourbon Street in New Orleans on the night of February 14, 1956. She was taken in and raised by a pack of gypsies known as the Ragin’ Cajuns until she was able to panhandle enough funds to escape at the age of 18. At this time she began her slow journey to the magical land also known as the Texas Hill Country. Due to her vast experience with the gypsies, when she reached Kerrville, she began her career in graft and corruption. After her arrest for embezzling campaign funds of a past mayor while serving as his campaign treasurer, a dear woman paid her bail and Rhonda was able to turn her life around. She owes so much to her gypsy family for teaching her some of life's greatest lessons; to the County Judge for throwing out her case; and, to that dear woman who is now involved in city government but asked that her name not be mentioned or connected with anything involved with this tale.
Her greatest desire is to reign as the Queen of Mardi Gras for 2011. This would prove to all those back home on Bourbon Street, that the piano bar kid, born on Fat Tuesday all those years ago, can make it to great heights.
