Hi ya'll. Well, Ike is still a piece away. ("a piece" undetermined distance in the south. Distance it may be is uncertain As in: Bubba's place is just down the road a piece) Piece is usually a shorter distance than"yonder" depending on who is using it. But I digress. Ike's out yonder in the Gulf getting closer to Galveston(and there are soooo any little towns on the coast.) OLd town (East)Galveston has a seawall they have depended upon for yrs. Heck I remember sitting o it as a kid)The west side has no seawall. they showed the streets of w galv about 2 hours ago. at that time the streets were filling with water already. They expect huge surges. That old seawall may very well be breached this time. Huge surges are building up in front of Ike. There are also many offshore rigs out there. Gas will be going up once more as OPEC takes advantage(they announced a couple days ago they were"cutting back on production") Our pals,yep.
Sunny here.I interrupt Mom. Nothing resembling pawlitics on this blog,mom. Remember!? Now, AHEM, we all hope and pray and cross all crossables that evrybody will be ok.

If you are interested ,Google Galveston, TX 1900. The singular most horrific huricane in our history. 6,000to 9,000 (about) killed.
The waves are now breaching the old sea wall. Hope it doesn't get destroyed. And Ike is at least 12 hours from landfall. And all our little coastal towns.(I'm quite fond of that piece of coast)
OK-Good news/ As the buses arrive, people have their pets with them! And the SPCA of McKinney or Dallas-I'm not sure who-sent a truck(large a/c truck)-to bring dogs/cats and some bunnies to the spca in McKinney so they wo
Our lovely friend Thor gave us this award! Thank you Thor!!! We are honored to receive this form you. You are so sweet. And quite the handsome fellow. See for yourself at http://meupequeograndethor.blogspot.com/ (quite a mouthful,hu? I should have paid more attention in my 2 years of Spanish.) We love Thor's blog too. And so many more. We are going to sniff around. We aren't sure of the rules. We're not good with rules anyhow! We'll be back later to pass this on!
We're praying for everyone that Ike will hurt. We know he will at least take houses and businesses. We hope no lives.
pee ess we haven't gotten any emails to come stay with us. but maybe I posted it to late. Or maybe someone will still come. As long as everybody has a place to go.
