i am not going to stress....
but i am packed up if need be and have food and water. i think i have decided if it lands in LA (west of us, of course) i am going to metairie. if it falls on the MS side or west of that, i am staying aboard. it is, so far, a compact storm. too soon to really tell anything at all.
a man made a comment on CNN, while packing to leave his gentilly home, about not returning if it hits here. the comment hit home with me, "I just fear it's time to move on if it happens again," he said. "If it happens once, it's once in a lifetime. If it happens twice, you'll never feel comfortable."

Roma

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
