The kids in my class described grass as "crispy" one year. Never before and never since have I heard that word used to describe typical grass like you find in people's yards or in a normal park.

The parks in the neighborhood around the school I work at don't have grass...just concrete and those black rubber mat things under the playground equipment. There's literally blocks and blocks with no grass.

I am not a country girl but I'm ready to leave a city of this size to something smaller!

I've heard about the Louisiana bugs LOL. But you live in north La, right? I have not been north of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. I've only been in the NOLA metro area and to BR and on I-10 between the two.
Yes north Louisiana. It isn't that great! I heard south LA is nice though never been but would love to go!

Louisiana DWI




A young man was pulled over by the Louisiana state police for speeding. The officer stepped out of his patrol car, adjusted his sunglasses, and swaggered up to the young man's window. "What chew driving so fast for son? You going to a fahr?. Let me see your license, boy." The young man handed over his license. Then the officer noticed that the back seat of his car was full of large knives. The officer said, "Tell me boy, why you got them knives on that there back seat?" The young man replied, "Well sir, I'm a juggler." The officer spat some tobacco juice and then he said, "A juggler; well you don't say. Boy, put cha hands on the trunk of yer car; you going to jail!" The young man pleaded with the officer not to take him to jail. He offered to prove to the officer that he was a juggler by way of demonstration. He said, "You can even hold me at gunpoint while I juggle for you." The officer reluctantly allowed him to prove his point while he held him at gunpoint. Two miles down the road at Joe's Tavern, Billy Bob was drinking it up with Homer T. Ratcliff. He soon left and got into his old, rusty pickup truck. He proceeded down the road trying his best to stay on the right side. Suddenly Billy Bob spotted the most unbelievable sight of his life! He drove to the nearest phone booth and dialed the number for Joe's Tavern and asked for his buddy, Homer T. Ratcliff. When Homer got on the phone Billy Bob said, "Whatever you do when you leave that tavern, don't go north on 442. The state police are giving a sobriety test that nobody can pass!!

Crispy? LOL guess they never saw grass to much either?

The country is nice. I can let my kids play outside and not have to worry so much you know!

I used to live out in the country when I was little but then we moved to the suburbs. I like both places equally.
