well wishes & Cheer for her safe return, and
PRAY for her situation to improve soon!

***To each and every one of you, my much loved friends, thank you! I'm sure

most of you have heard by now all my trials during those days of no

power! My phones are tied in with my cable and internet, so all I had

was the cell phone, and it is useless unless you have phone numbers! I

lost 3 freezers full of food, but my dogs were extremely happy! They

were Very well fed! My shih tzu now rolls instead of walking, she put on

so much weight! I could keep the cell phone charged with a cord we have

for the car. ALL my phone numbers, etc. were stored in my computer!

Won't do That anymore! Have a hard copy now! We had a sudden windstorm

of flat winds of 70 to 80 mph, gusting to 100 mph. Lasted about 45 min.

Uprooted thousands of trees, most of which came down on power lines! No

way to contact anyone but my daughter in TX., but couldn't get her into

my addresses for anywhere else! I don't remember now how long he waited,

but bucc, bless his heart, called the Emergency Services of Beckley and

those people came 20 miles out to the house to check on me. They were

Much impressed that I had a friend in England who would go to that kind

of trouble (To tell the truth, so was I LOL! ). They e-mailed him back,

and had brought me his phone number so I could text him to finally let

him know everything was ok. . He probably regretted it, as my son gave

him grief for Days! We had no power from 6/30 until 7/11. With no power,

my sump pump to the septic tank couldn't pump, so the heat wasn't too

bad, but the stench was awful! Price gouging was rampant! A sack of ice

(IF you could get one ) cost nearly 5.00! And generators were tripled in

cost! Gasoline went from 3.95 to nearly 6.00 a gal. I had no damage to

the house, and none of us were hurt, so I felt blessed from the start! I

don't want to do this to any of you, but if you have someone you Really

dislike, I have a 17 yr. old grandson I will send to them all expenses

paid! I'm still playing catchup on soda, and didn't find this until

today. I missed you all so much! I love you all even more!

    Good luck , friend . Our thoughts are with you . We had some NASTY wind storms here too , uprooted hundreds of trees ( Two On My House ) . It went from ZERO to 90 MPH in 30 seconds . Thank God my power wasn't out more than a day and we didn't lose any food . The weather has gone wild ! You hang in there and thank God it wasn't a twister . God Bless .

  • shaltov72 2012/07/16 17:20:20
    Hope everything is well, the lord will watch over you, but these power outages is the plan of the not so new world order (the governments owned and operated by the banking elitists).

    Sounds like you're pulling through all this like the self-sufficient, American you are (with a little help from your friends and family). What a story!......and not ONE word about waiting for the government while clinging to your Bible and gun! :) Oh, the teenager??? After all this, I'll bet you can get through one more year before showing him where the exit is!
    Glad all OK.

    My Savior in my dreams

    Our loving Savior came to me in a dream,
    And brought me to a place where dreams live,
    And showed me life’s not always what it seems,
    And gave to me a gift that I now give:

    He whispered, “Take my hand, I’ll lead you through
    A place where all your dreams can come true!
    Close your eyes and open up your heart,
    For then this flight of dreams will start.

    He brought me through the darkness to the light,
    A patchwork quilt of beauty without seams,
    Where colors wrapped around me with delight,
    Each color was a rainbow full of dreams.

    He led me through a hall of lovely sound,
    And from each room a song would gently play,
    With doors flung open widely all around.
    And I wished with all my heart that I could stay.

    We drifted in the fragrance of the breeze;
    We tasted all of life that we could see,
    To savor all the flowers and the trees.
    And felt it flow as one in harmony.

    Then my Savior turned to me and said
    “Dream now, and dream of love and light,
    You’re the keeper of these dreams inside your head.
    And dreams will lead you safely through the night.

    The Lord made me the keeper of this dream, it’s true,
    May their loving kindness visit you each night,
    For I offer all my dreams to you.
    To fill your soul with love and warmth and light!

    My prayers are with you Doofie Girl! I asked around about the grandson thing..............The age is against you!! Everyone that I know of denies having children and/or grandchildren of mostly any teenage years. It's like they don't exist till they're mid twenties or so!!
