Hey Supermom (aka: Kuovonne), When you talk to Merriwether, I have a message to pass:

John has plenty of goats, but no eggs. If he wants fresh meat, come and get it, but he has to clean them himself.

Thanks!!!!

Hang in there, being a single Mom is the toughest job in the world,,,and the most rewarding!!!! This is temporary, and it too shall pass. Be safe! I'm sure Grandma and Grandpa are really lamenting the extra time they get to spend with you and their grand daughters!!!!

That'll be a sight.

Just the thought of that makes me ill.

He may have a while to go. Hope he has enough Cat Food! That kitten, if hungry, already knows what he tastes like. grin

You just know he probably bought two boxes full of Jack Daniels before the storm hit and is passing the time by seeing how much of it he can drink before the power comes back on.


You don't know how right you are, Izzy:

I'm looking forward to reading how the block party went down when he gets back online.

Thanks for updating, Kuovonne!

"When you get home you're going to find your husband standing on the roof in his underpants with a tin foil hat on and a bottle of whiskey in one hand and knife in another."

Considering that his board name is 'Blast', the above scenario may be the BEST that she can expect. Like, still having a roof is a GOOD thing.

So, Blast has a new 'kitty', eh?

Glad to hear our TX brethren are fairing pretty well. It'd be interesting if you could post any observations after things settle down - what worked, what didn't, etc. If equipment failed, why and what brand... those kinds of things.

Anyway, apparently in Detroit we had 5" of rain and some wind. I, however, was in Minneapolis, getting a flight back home after Cinncinati airport closed (only later did I find out about the 75 mph winds there). So once again, I got lucky and missed "all the fun."

Stay safe everyone.

Well, with the tiny taste of Ike we've had, I'll pass on a full hurricane, thanks anyway.

The tail end of Ike blew through Northeast Ohio on Sunday night, and it's been said that up to a third of all traffic lights in the state were knocked out. Trees and branches down in a lot of areas. Power is expected to be out for a fairly large number of residents until Saturday or Sunday, and several schools were or have been closed.

The wethergirls are really missing their daddy, however, I'm glad that we don't have to be there, even though this single mom thing is tough.

Some guys have all the fun.

My wife won't let me wear my tinfoil hat...
