Karen.....

so glad you are ok....I continue to pray for you and all those affected....it sounds like you have a cozy spot on the porch even with the snakes...

Karen ... I'm glad you are okay and hanging in there with the best of 'em. This has been a tremendous ordeal for you and so many others. You all continue to remain in my thoughts and prayers.

If there's anything I can do or get for you, please email me and I'll box it up and send it down.

hugs, Marti

Living simply here in the mountains!

Paulie!

Ain't it awful? I can't watch the news much...it brings me down.

But I am so happy to hear you are safe.

We're still missing some folks too, but we try to maintain the attitude that they ARE alright.

If you're in Crowley, just ask around town about the refugees at Mike's camp. They'll give you directions as to which dirt road you should take...laughing. (We're already almost famous.)

Sending love and hugs to you all.

I have to go buy some mice. Shaking my head.
First I had too many of 'em, now I have to go buy em.

I love you all...and thank you.

Glad you're doing alright, and in a more private place than a very open spaced sports arena or convention center.  Just think how bad it'd be if you needed ladybugs to feed some critter!

We've got a jumpy eye on Rita now. We had planned on going back this week, but now, we think we may stay put--there's more options of highway here than there.

*shaking my head*

You ever get the feeling yer being followed?



Love to all...and yep, I'll be around.

I sure am getting around.

Looking at property in the Ozarks now. One house comes with a cave.

The hubby thought I was joking.

Um...no.

So let me get this straight you are trading in hurricanes for droughts and floods, and the odd tornado for good measure.  (Don't ya remember Dorothy?   You are looking to live in an Ozark house, that just happens to come with an extra cave as a perk? Hey wait that could be a good thing, our Yeti needs a cave!  So, this is a good move, you could kill two birds with one stone and get both you and our Yeti accommodations. However, now when I say, "Hey are you from Missouri or what?  You can just simply say, "Yup and I party hardy at Ha Ha Tonka State Park too."

Oh I love your sense of humor, but it is not helping me be just a tad worried up here again. Glad you are staying put - very glad.

psst Shawn - that's what a Yeti looks like

It aint paranoid if somebody(thing) really is chasing you!  And if it's a windbag named Rita -- no shame in running hard and far.

It's not safe to go back anyway.  A simple rainstorm could breach at this point.

Gumbo is great when it's snowing outside

A what?? Cave!! That's funny. Just think of it this way.......if you have a big family get together, you can always stick the members you don't like in the cave. Just a thought.

Hi Everyone,

Karen called earlier and she asked that I tell you that she is no dummy!   She is sure not going to New Orleans to be rescued from some rooftop!

What she is doing, is buying more plastic containers at Wal-Mart today to keep what little they do have in, (just in case,) and staying put where they are until it looks like they have to leave.  If that happens they will drive north and stay "somewhere" for a night or two until the coast is clear to go back to the hunting camp.

She wondered if you could all just blow at the same time on Thursday and see if you can shift that damn hurricane away from Crowley

She sounded really positive, and man do I admire that in her.  She is one strong woman I tell you.  
  
Wish them luck folks for again, she and a lot of our other friends need it.  All the folks in Florida, Texas, good grief!

My lord I don't know about you but I can't take this much longer, and worry myself sick.
