    Yeah, she's on FB some, mostly posting about her critters.

    Like the last time I got hit down here, she's offered to send me a care package once I can tell her what I'd like. Last time, she mailed me decent bread. After Katrina, if it wasn't white bread, it wasn't in the stores for a month or so. Being Deb, of course she sent me fruit, too, just so she could own the brag about sending oranges to Florida.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    With rental car acquired, I finally got a chance to check out more of the neighborhood this afternoon. Lots of businesses open, including a Publix a couple miles down the road, but even on the main drag, U.S. 1, between my powered-up motel and the powered-up shopping center that holds the Publix, there's a lot of randomly unpowered businesses.

    The IHOP doesn't have power, but the Thai Buffet next door is open. Cici's and the Pizza Hut, negative; Papa Johns, open, including delivery. Walmart opened with generator power, then closed this afternoon when they couldn't keep them running. Checking away from U.S. 1, downed trees and power lines cut me off pretty quickly.

    Of course, if it's open, it has horrendous lines.

    I'm sharing the motel with a lot of FP&L workers (local power utility), though they're not here much, obviously. Nearly everyone else is trying to get back into the Keys. Some of them are pretty desperate because they left people behind down there and haven't been able to contact them. The causeway is "open" for the first 70 of the 120 miles to Key West, but the norm is no phone, no power, no gas, and boil orders.

    Only because they don't have many basements in Florida.

    What a vicious slur.

    Poor ol Thirsty was saving the liquor from drowning in the flooding at great risk to his own life. He rescued as much as he could, carrying the bottles in his forelimbs -- and even carried a massive amount in his tummy.

    Here the noble critter is. All tuckered out from the ordeal:
