This feels not a thing but no matter how much as I tell myself that, still I’m anxious and my stomach in knots anytime I cross into this neighboring parish to New Orleans that was ESPECIALLY cruel and racist.

- backyard grass had damage
- Petey tried to bite several people and things

Also, some blades of grass did not make it out of the lease alive.”
