BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Welcome Back, ~C

Our good friend, C, lives in Houston. Saying this past week has been "inconvenient" for him is putting it mildly. He, like nearly 5 million others in the Houston-Galveston area, was without power for several days courtesy of Hurricane Ike.

C works for The City of Houston in a management position and was required to work the night Ike made landfall. We emailed each other frantically, C keeping me abreast of the changing weather conditions. It was quite a rush for this weather freak, I must say.
C said that the power had started flashing on and off and that he would probably "go dark" soon.
A couple minutes later, he was gone.
We weren't able to make contact for 24-48 hours, until we were finally able to reach him by phone at work. The back-up generators were operating , so he was in better shape than most.

Fortunately, C's power was restored Thursday and he and the cats are having a wonderful weekend. I hope Houston and Galveston can return to some form of normalcy in the weeks and months ahead.
