Forgot To Say

. . . I'd be away.

It started out as a coupla days... then morphed into a few days.

Anyway, I'll be blogging later after I've caught up on reading all the good folks linked on the right.

Oh, we've got a hurricane tracking this way. Dennis, as a name, doesn't sound quite as intimidating as Ivan, but Dennis seems to be packing as much punch. Looks to be at least a Category 10 on the Murphy-Mazda Scale.

Hope Dennis ain't no you folks, or to us over here in Houston. I'm already mightily provoked at him...he and his Bimbo cohort Cindy spoiled my vacation to Seaside.

Your post below about the oysters brought back memories of my childhood. My dad was from AL and my mom from MS. We would go and visit my aunt and uncle in Pascagoula and I remember watching my dad and uncle open oysters and swallow them whole. Gross, gross, gross. Still have lots of family down there. Mobile, Theodore, Gautier, Biloxi and Pascagoula. I'm worried of course, but all y'all know how to handle these things. Take care.

El Jefe - he looks to be shaping up to be a strong one. Sorry to hear about Cindy dumping on your vacation. Tho, don't let Dennis hear ya calling his gal a bimbo -- that might just make him madder :)

Stacy - Raw oysters build character :p
I like mine with crackers and horseradish -- that way it is not so reminiscent of a bad cold when they go down. I know, I know -- gross :)

And yes, we'll be OK. We respect mother nature's awesome force. Altho, there are some that go about preparations differently -- like the 2 brothers who were gonna tie themselves into their mobile home for Ivan. One brother was tied down in his chair when Ivan hit and blew the other brother about a quarter of a mile away. Meantime, the trailer flipped and rescue workers found the tethered brother still tethered, but hanging upside down. Both brothers lived -- suffered a few scratches if I recall.
