...back in the saddle again, so to speak...


Hopefully not like the last,

Maybe through the area it will go fast,

Bringing down the temps for a cooler week,

So far, without the electric & the high temps,

This past week I have been really feeling quite weak…


No longer have I got an awning,

Been told that maybe FEMA will re-imburse,

I kind of doubt it, being I am stupid enough,

Not to have any insurance, too poor,

Not much can I do, you all too know the score…


I re-filled my fridge,

No more or less than I had before,

Didn’t cost too much, no more than forty four,

Still didn’t want to of it spend,

Hopefully, of the storms enroute,

They won’t of my current problems further offend...

Now every time you hear thunder you'll be wondering . . . Again? We've sure been having them down here from early in the morning and as we speak. You ought to figure out a way to rig up something to take the place of that awning, Ed . . .
