Bonjour, Charlotte Crozat here, Maggie's grand-mere. I know she's expressed her reservations about the Miss Pelican Mardi Gras Gumbo Queen pageant and between you and me, I couldn't agree with her more. It really is an antiquated contest. But it is an annual tradition in our little town of Pelican, Louisiana, so I suppose the goal is to bring the event into the 21st century. As the kids say, good luck with that.
