    There is a couple of local organizations that will be giving 100% of all donated money and goods to hurricane relief. The Cajun Navy came through before the storm came ashore, and gathered up water and supplies as they headed your way.

    The offer still stands, whatever you need, we are here for you. We need to take care of our own.

    A. You were a lot younger and more resilient back then - and it was an adventure of sorts.

    B. A gripin' Marine (sailor) is a happy Marine (sailor). When he quits gripin' and starts thinkin', that's when the trouble starts.

    Did you get any flood water in the house or garage?

    Be careful - don't overdo things. Work a little, drink some water, sit in whatever shade you can find. Let the younger folks do things.

    Good News - Bad News; Power in a Week

    Don't get careless refueling the generator and burn the house down. The house I grew up in was wired for 30A, 220-volts, about 6.6 KW. 7 KW should keep life livable for the next week.

    "M R E"; Marine Royal Eats!

    I'd guess by now, since some of the water has gone down, Ira has catfish in little ponds out by the garden. Seafood delivered to the door.

    Yeah, we make fun of the old guy without power. No mercy here.....

    Ira, take care of yourself. You don't need to get cut up and infected from dirty water.

    I was thinking he was hopefully eating like a king with the bounty of the sea at his front door. Marine Royal Eats, I like that. Another Marines staple, S.O.S.
