Musings


1. I've been spending a lot of hours landscaping our property. It's supposed to be very healthy psychologically and physically to "garden" like this. I would tend to agree on the psychological part. But the physical part is somethin' else. Good thing I have a Swedish masseuse.

2. I grew up in home that had no air-conditioning. Our car had no a/c. Our church had none during most of my childhood. How in the world did we survive that?

3. Rebuilding New Orleans is a mistake.

4. Why couldn't the mothers of Dwyane Wade and Isiah Thomas spell their sons' names correctly?

5. I have never seen Christianity and Christians held in such low regard as now.

6. Has anyone tried vanilla ice cream on banana pudding? I think it would work.

Just curious... why do you think rebuilding NO is a mistake? Not saying I agree or disagree, just wondering why you are so certain?

Also, you never answered my question about the cats. Are they gone or not? =)

1. The cats are still here. Carole began to think last week that we should put out flyers picturing the cats and try to get someone who wants one or both. I think we should go the animal shelter route.

2. I think NO is hurricane-prone. And there are many civil engineers who think the Army Corps of Engineers is putting a weak levee in place of the one that gave way.

I would love to give the displaced folks their town back. But how awful would it be to go to all that trouble just to see history repeat itself?

I just KNEW the cats would still be there. I've had too many converations with you two about getting rid of those cats, and they are always still around! =)

If you guys come visit us soon, I'll make you some of my banana pudding AND I'll buy vanilla ice cream... just so you can try them together.
