that time of year

It's hurricane season. Right now we have a tropical storm named Gaston right off the coast and hurricane Frances lurking to the southeast. Gaston isn't shit--- I mowed my lawn today in bright sunshine, and he's expected to wobble off away from civilization the way I expect this guy to do if he comes to the Jawja Blogfest and has a leetle, bitty sip of the.... um.... HOME-MADE WINE that this guy brought last year. (in a Mason jar, the way... um... HOME-MADE WINE is supposed to be served.)

But I digress. I'm looking forward to the blogfest a lot more than I am to hurricane Frances. Savannah's been lucky for a long time, and we DO have that notorious hurricane magnet of North Carolina just up the coast. The odds are VERY good that Frances will find better grazing ground than around here.

But I'm keeping an eye on that sucker.


Since I live in South Florida, I'm not thrilled about Frances either. It looks like it's headed smack for us. I KNEW I should've moved last winter!!

That's because Gaston is French.... 8 )

Geoff wants me to meet him there, but I warned him you people may not be able to handle both of us YANKEES at once. We tend to stir the pot, drink a lot of booze, steal women, break furniture, and dislocate jaws when we get together.

I'm a Yankee living on the Emerald Coast and wouldn't mind doing some camping on those Gerogia Hills then swinging by Helen for a visit if the invites open.

Hey now... I live right on the coast of that "hurricane magnet." Let's keep the vibes positive. ;-)

Rick drove us from Washington Dc right through that lovely storm it would really have been nice if the people who could not drive would have stayed right with their emergency flashers on instead of in the hammer lane but I really was good on this trip and I have a nail or two to prove it .
