Day 461 of Life on the Road as a Family, New Orleans

IMG_6318We did a 3 hour walking history tour of the Garden District and had to go see the house with the cornstalk fence. One of the stories is that the lady of the house was from Iowa and missed the fields of corn. Another story is that she picked out the fence because it was the most expensive in the catalog.  In either case, it’s the only cornstalk fence we’ve ever seen!  Not as good as the real thing at Grandma’s, but still fun to see.  The houses are huge and beautiful and everyone’s gardens are just waking up.  Smelled great.

We spent the rest of the day back at our rig washing our dogs, washing all our bedding, and washing their bedding – our dogs have fleas, argh.  We cannot do a bug bomb, because there is nowhere for us to go.  The owner of the RV park has 11 cats roaming all over, and there are dogs on either side of us. So we don’t know where the dogs picked the fleas up, but wow, what a pain for all of us.  Lady is going nuts and starting to lick off her hair. so we had to find a pet store and buy her a cone of shame today, which is tough on all of us.  We’ve spent hundreds of dollars on flea remedies.  Just adds to our displeasure of our stay here.  Darn.  Our expectations were so high.
