Papa John started feeling every part of his body for any signs of lumps and he didn’t find any thankfully but Papa John did say something was wrong with his coordination and he can’t have that going in the slaughter house so he said wait and see later on the year. “Ha, looks like Shaun or should I say Jaws didn’t get picked to go!” Cheyenne said while Papa John was checking her out.
