Hi all my dear friends,

Me and the Mommy are down but not out. That mean old IKE didn't get us but he sure tried. We stayed home, just me, Samantha's ashes & the Mommy. The Mommy said that if she was gonna go to the hereafter, her girls were gonna go with her. It was very scary but I was brave and slept up next to the Mommy & Samantha's little blue velvet box all night while IKE tried to knock our house down and our street flooded & turned into a lake. The debris line was up to the front porch step but no water got into the house. We didn't have any damage to the house but there was some minor damage to the garage and IKE must not like hibiscus because he cracked some of the limbs and smashed the big pot the biggest plant one was in. GUESS WHAT!!! Them hibiscus said to heck with IKE...there are still blooms on it.

The Mommy went to work on Monday and has been working 10 hours every day. Her has to go to work tomorrow too. We have been staying at home, thank goodness Mother Nature was good to us, since it has been cool BUT all that is over now. We are at my cousin Tippy's house....Tippy is the poodle you've all met before. We spent the night here last night so the Mommy could wash clothes. Since it has gotten hot again the Mommy is sending me away to stay at Jody's until we get our electricity back. I don't want to go but the Mommy says it will get too hot for me in the house, even with all the windows open like they have been since our lights went out. I think she is afraid somebody might try to break into the house. She says they can take anything they want but to leave me alone.

We want to thank everybody for thinking about us & praying for us. You don't know how much it meant to us to have all your thoughts and prayers with us. The Mommy was really worried about Mack and his family, because they live in Angelton and it was very bad there too but he and his family evacuated to Stafford and are back home now. We know lots of our friends in Texas have had it rough too but today is the first time we have been able to check my blog and we had a comment from Mack so we know they are safe. We hope all our dear friends are OK.

The Mommy's cousin Shirley needs to use the computer, so we are gonna close for now. Be back as soon as we gets power back.

GOOD BLESS EVERYONE..........Mona & the Mommy too!!

PS....A special thank you to my dearest buddies, Roxie, Sammy and Andy, for letting everybody know we made it, their Mommy was our lifeline to the world that had lights.

I know I will have a wonderful time with Jody, but who is gonna take care of the Mommy?
