Some of the houses are very nicely kept and other places look like they were under water a short time ago.
|House with FEMA trailer|
I saw one house still with a FEMA trailer in the yard. Maybe the owners weren't living in the house at all.
Starting along the top of the levee, I walked with a regular who said he'd been taking this tour since he was a boy. I sat on a bench for a while and contemplated my life. I could hear roosters crowing behind one of the houses.
I chatted with people as I walked around. They congratulated me on my new home and welcomed me to the neighborhood.
I know that I will see them again and that they'll remember me. That's something.
