Stormy Weather

Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky. Stormy weather. Since my man and I ain't together, keeps raining all the time.

[18:04] Gabrielle Riel: Our first topic is the St John Market.

[18:05] Gabrielle Riel: The market is right out here in the square. It’s in the building that looks like a miniature version of the actual French Market in NOLA.

[18:05] Gabrielle Riel: My intention for that space was to offer items to St John’s visitors. Freebies, although I hate that term because so many freebies in SL are total garbage. I don’t want garbage in our …
