Okay! Here's my update--Shane and Shawn are now West of Baton Rouge. (Everybody say "Yay!")
And I'm sure you've heard from Duane, but Mark said he talked to him--he's still in Mobile, but he is fine. (Everybody say "Hell YAY!")
We're waiting here for Mark, who should be here some time late tonight.
(And Mysteria is wonderful, isn't she?)
And tell Royce this isn't a chat room, it's a very FAST message board. grin
But anyhow, I'll keep trying the phones, (I just did again) but we are waiting to group up with all the guys who are still enroute before we decide what we do.
And believe it or not, Mark's brother Joey rode out the hurricane offshore on a rig, so we will prolly be staying in his trailer, since he's still out there and still working.
And if all of this sounds like I'm don't know what is going on, it's 'cause I don't. All I know is we are all accounted for, finally, and we got the hell outta dodge.
Thanks Pip, thanks twist, (thanks Royce ) and ta for now--I am trying not to commandeer our friend's computer too, so my visits may be often, but brief.
(Now hmmm...we may be talkin' bout renting a house...we just dunno what the next step is right now.)
and thank you all, and yes, Mysteria, I'm not sure who, but somebody will use that room! Thank you Aunt Sharon! I'll be in touch when I can.
ta for now...I'm going to go watch CNN and nod, weep a bit.
I love you Mom. *smooch*
