October 5

A hurricane is coming. A hurricane is coming. When I was a kid , that was a time for celebration. No school. Daddy home. Water in the bath tub.Rain.Then no electricity. It was so much fun. Now, it doesn't bring up those same feelings. There is so much hype about the weather. In Chicago, one year, an election was lost because the Mayor didn't take measures to provide for the citizens. It appears that many local Governors have taken heed of that and protect their backs by over planning. At least that is what we all hope. I do put aside extra cans of dog food for Cricket. And I have a carrier , in case we do have to go to a shelter.I bet no one knows that I am qualified by the Red Cross to help run a shelter. I took all kinds of courses for this. Hopefully, I'll never need to use these skills.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
