Glad to hear that you're safe, you've had a lot of us worried since we hadn't heard from you and hadn't logged on since late July.


When you get back to LA make sure you bitch slap the Mayor of NO and the Governer of LA for me.

Glad to hear from ya again. Yeah, they had some serious problems in your home state there, the state & local govts thought they were out of the wood after Katrina blew thru, but unfortunately on Aug 29 at around 0400, the levee broke and all hell broke loose, at least in NOLA. Let us know when you're stateside.
BE CAREFUL!

My dad is a survivalist kinda guy, has a generator going, refrigertors running, been chainsawing trees out of the road and had all my guns loaded and stashed around the house. He keeps telling me it was all the idiots that didnt prepare that are in so much trouble now. I hope things have somewhat normalized when I get back dont want to go from a warzone to a warzone.

Shit, we'd been wondering what happened to you-glad you are OK, glad you're coming home, glad your house is OK, sorry about Katrina, though. You might be put to work there, by the looks of things.

Your Dad sounds squared away! he must be proud as hell of you!
