Hi everyone, I MISSED YOU ALL.The last two months have been a very emotional experience for me. I live in South Louisiana just outside of New Orleans. My damages from Katrina, for the most part were to my roof and lost utilities. It seemed at first that everything was alright. In the days following Katrina local officials were asking for assistance from boat owners to help in rescuing Katrina victims. Hundreds of private boat owners in the effected areas responded to the rescue call. A friend of mine, who owns an airboat, asked if I would go with him. I will never forget the sights and sounds that we encountered in those days ahead. The yelling, pleading, and crying from inside attics is something I will never, ever forget. As I type this it brings tears to my eyes and a hurt that I have never experienced in my life. I have always been a jovial person, always ready to hear and tell a good joke. But since Katrina, nothing seems funny to me anymore. Then Rita arrived, taking care of what Katrina missed and causing havoc to the whole coast of Louisiana. I plan to resume posting jokes in the future, not with the expectations of making anyone in particular laugh... except maybe myself. They say it will get better. p.s. Thanks averagejoe for your concern and best wishes. You are truly one of a kind.
