    • I have a friend that I was riding with just after the Rite-Aid invasion. We were riding on St.Charles, when he suddenly pulls into the one at Louisiana Ave & St. Charles. We go inside, and he asks to see the manager. When he finally appears, he proceeds to tell him “I don’t give a [email protected]!t about the Coke vs Pepsi thing, the fact that y’all got rid of the ice cream ensures that I’ll NEVER set foot in Rite-Aid again!”
      It was priceless, that company just didn’t have a clue, as to how they ruined the best local institution – and they still don’t.

    • Buckmoth caterpillars. They have sharp spines on their back which secrete a venom that burns like hell. I stepped on one when I put out the garbage while barefoot. Had to go to the ER and they said I had 64 stings on my foot. I couldn’t even wear socks for a week – went to work barefoot, but hey, it’s N’Awlinz. Took about three weeks to walk normally. Also, they fall out of trees and can land on you. Just be careful.

    • the oak trees have fuzzy/furry caterpillars in their branches at a certain time if year. Often they fall on the kids playing under the trees. The caterpillars leave a skin rash wherever they come in contact with
      the skin. Just creepy!

  1. I love this, however most if not all applies to southeastern and southwestern parts of Louisiana. Could you make one for lovebugs.

  2. Fell into a pothole
    And can’t get out!
