I have never been to New Orleans, Louisiana. But what happened to them when Katrina hit the coast there was so devastating and so unbelievable, that people are still reeling from it years later. And now this thing (in the photo above) is heading across the Gulf of Mexico, aiming straight at that same Gulf coastline that was decimated by Katrina.
I don’t know about you, but I’m going to start praying that something, or someone, steps in and causes this thing they call “Gustav” to fizzle out before it hits the land. And the people. And the animals and pets. And all God’s creatures who might be in its path.
GUSTAV – STAY AWAY!
I just couldn’t let the day go by without saying here that today my darling husband turned 63.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEETIE!
After typing straight for 7.5 hours today, there aren’t many more words left in my fingers, they cancelled the ballgame because of rain tonight, so we are all headed to bed to see if sleep will come a-calling. Some nights it never does.
I read somewhere in an editorial recently:
“Give us this day….our daily thunderstorm….”
And boy does that ever fit with us. I can’t even remember the last time we had a day with no rain/thunder/lightning in it.
We’re having a little party for P. on Monday – which includes cake. I am not supposed to eat cake. It also will include lobster rolls, and I am making those, and by gosh, I’m going to have me one! Bread and all. Just this once. For P’s birthday.
