Hi my dearest friends,

There is no quote for tonight just a gift to all of my friends from God because if it wasn't for him all of us in Texas would have been blown away by Ike.

A smile from God!!

Me and the Mommy have so much to tell you about what all happened last week and pictures too but the Mommy said we gots to get permission to show some of the pictures so that may take a few days. Tina & Chris are also gonna send the Mommy some pictures they took of me, Jody and Emily when the Mommy went off & left me at their house. The Mommy was sooooooo jealous when she saw how me and Jody slept with Emily & they was funny too. What was I supposed to do? Cry the whole time? She went & left me, I didn't leave there!!

We still don't have our cable back, so the Mommy hasn't been able to watch Dancing With The Stars or America's Got Talent, so instead we are gonna share some Hurricane Education with you and if your wondering why there isn't a flower picture like there usually is, it's because the Mommy is so proud of our hibiscus plant that is still blooming regardless of it being beaten down. The Mommy took some pictures so tonight you are gonna see a lot of buds. Sit back & see how many of these statements you agree with.......course if you haven't ever been through a hurricane you wouldn't know......but theye are all true.

"Coffee and frozen pizzas can be made on a BBQ grill."

"No matter how many times you flick the switch, lights don't work without electricity."

"A new method of non-lethal torture--showers without hot water."

"There are a lot more stars in the sky than most people thought."

"There are a lot of darn trees around here."

"Flood plane drawings on some mortgage documents were seriously wrong."

"Tele-marketers function no matter what the weather is doing."

"Cell phones work when land lines are down, but only as long as the battery remains."

"I learned what happens when you make fun of another states' blackout."

"I can walk a lot farther than I thought."

Have a stress free day---life is too short for drama & petty things, so laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.

Love, kisses & (((huggies))) to all........Mona & the Mommy too!!@

All those statements are so true! I'm sad that so many people had to find out about them in real life. God bless you.
