The King’s Message, The Year of Being Bad

Neptunus Rex XXXVII proclaims

The Year of Being Bad!

My banner represents who I am and how I got here. The crest is the country crest of Latvia, from where my parents emigrated after WWII. I was raised in a Latvian household, and taught that with hard work, anything is possible in America, and we were expected to do our best! America is still the land of opportunity for those who try, and I believe it is the best country in the world!

The pine trees depict my love of the Minnesota woods and lakes where I grew up hunting and fishing. The palms represent the state of Florida, as well as Ye Mystic Krewe of Neptune – where Terrie and I have made more friends than we ever thought possible. I am still amazed that we are lucky enough to live in such a paradise!

Family is what makes it all worthwhile, and the 5 children on my crest represent our grandchildren that Terrie and I are so blessed to have in our lives. To see the world through their eyes makes me appreciate how fortunate we really are.

My theme is The Year of Being Bad. We go through life trying to be good in all we do. Work hard, raise families, and be kind to others. When first introduced to the Krewe, I asked “What does the Krewe Do?” and was told simply enough, “We have fun”. Since then, it’s always an opportunity for me to be a little “bad”. I may smoke a cigar I shouldn’t, and other occasional excesses, and pray there are no videos of me dancing – but I don’t have any regrets! So this year I encourage everyone to have more fun, and when in doubt about, say “What the heck” and be BAD!

Each year Ye Mystic Krewe of Neptune selects a King and Queen as its reigning royalty. These monarchs are joined by a Court of selected young ladies who appear with the King, Neptunus Rex, and the Queen, Amphitrite, at all the Krewe functions.

Qualifications for Court membership include: ladies must be between 21 and 30, unmarried and no children. The minimum age can be reduced to 18 in the case of being a Krewe member's daughter or stepdaughter.

If any young lady has previously been a member of the Court and she wishes to represent the Krewe again on the new Court, she must complete an application as if she was a brand new applicant.

The Krewe will sponsor an Annual Court Tea. Prospective members will learn about the Krewe, its history, membership and its events. For this reason, prospects are obliged to attend the Tea. The time and location will be announced.
