There was a time when I would have rushed to my blog to say that Bone is fine. But as he’s one of the few people who reads this blog these days…..I’m well read on PPsychology Today so don’t cry for me…
Now I’m on vacation–had visitors, for Intersession, of the college student kind. Little Luce who isn’t so little anymore and her incredibly wonderful boyfriend. They give me faith….
So does Bone coming through this unscathed. I can’t believe how scared I was.
A friend of a lifetime went into the hospital last week with Multiple Myeloma. Then Phoebe Snow died who I don’t even know but….Then the tornadoes.
I first became close, to Bone, during Katrina when I noticed how genuinely kind and good he was to people who were directly affected. One woman had a son in Iraq and a son missing for a time in Bayou Country. I thought he was worth becoming friends with and never regretted that. Need him around to blog about life in Boneville with the Bonefamily&friends–he’ll have a celeb abbrev for that, I know.
We’ve always joked about his father’s insistence on getting into cars and driving around during tornadoes. I was never going to laugh at anything tornado related again however I heard from Bone last night when he got sporadic cell reception and now he has electricity. His family and weather–OK his father is worse, than me on keeping on top of weather, if that’s possible. Though he doesn’t get moldy, soggy, languid and sometimes depressed in spring rain–but come alive in summer humidity as I do,
This weather spate–I don’t know; it’s crazy, uncontrollable and scary.
But for now I’m just glad the Bone family is alright.
Places to help for Alabama Please in the name of one of the least prejudiced people I know, Bone, we’re all purple today and don’t say you don’t want to help a racist. Then they’ll look at color, political party, home ownership–does the person have insurance and finally relgion. We need none of that now!!!!
