Katrina . . .The Second Time Around


There he is.

at 21.


In the Cayman Islands for a luxurious getaway vacation.

Only it didn't go quite as planned! Gil arrived just in time for the island to be evacuated for the impending hurricane offshore . . .and no one bothered to inform him!

Imagine his suprise as he awoke from a good solid sleep upon arrival to find that NO ONE in the service industry was on duty.

Anywhere.

Alone.

For a week.

While Hurricane KATRINA ('81) stalled offshore.

Ah. Bested twice by the Beast.

What a story! I can't imagine that.

My husband and I spent a glorious week there at the Radisson in 1995 for our honeymoon - I hope you all got to or get to go back some day. The snorkeling was spectacular, playing with the stingray at Stingray City was so fun, and swimming down to collect a conch shell under a tuft of grass, and then later eating the conch, lime marinaded only, was a great experience (not tasty).

I've asked Gil to take me to the Caribbean . .any island will do! His response:

"I've already been there."

AACCKKK! :)

You've just added another reason why I should go! :)

Hi all
It is a good idea to start using enviromentally safe and animal friendly (non-toxic) substitutes when grooming your dog. You must groom your dog's whole body including the legs, tail and underbody if you want to do it right. You must groom certain dogs from the skin outward to truly be effective in taking care of their coat of hair and keeping it healthy. Comb through the unseen healthy hair and remove the shedding hair; this is what most groomers do first before cutting your pet's coat. You must groom some animals all at once, while some other animals have so much hair that it is easier to do a little at a time each day.
