This was a special Thanksgiving, not because of a fancy meal, there was none. My dog did get a special treat or two. What made it so great was my beautiful little dog could curl up in my lap, we could relax and take that next breath and listen to our little heartbeats.:) :)

I won't tell a long story, just that we had a brush with eternity, that I will not soon forget. To those that posted well wishes and prayers, I will be forever greatfull. To all members of this board, you are a wonderfull bunch of people, thank you all for sharing some of yourselves with me. Have the best holiday season ever and BE BLESSED. Roy

BTW: THe power has been on and off for about an hour, it may go off again.

I'll try, the first tornado touched down right in front of my home, did a good bit of damage to my property but the home was spared. They called in all firemen so I got on my bunker gear and grabbed my dog and headed for the fire station.

We were checking on people and clearing roads, while driving down La.464 the second toranado hit. A big oak tree came out of the sky and smashed into the cab of Caney4 ( my big red truck ) one branch came trhough the windshield and missed my head by about 4 inches. It took a while to get out.:eek:

Then the tornados just came and came, so far I know of two fatalitys. We will be cleaning up for weeks.

Wow, close one. Sounds like you had an angel on your shoulder. Speaking of Angel, here is ours.

BTW the wife wants to know what kind of dog you have?

Lupe,

Thanksgiving Day Indeed,

Glad you both survived, that was all waaay to close!

Great dog, for some reason he reminds me of the Welsh Terrier I used to have. Not very big but all Heart, Love and Courage!

Good Luck! :)

Lupe, so glad to hear that You and buddy made it through it alright.

Wells and fire trucks can always be repaired/replaced, not so for You and the little guy.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Yep, it came on late last evening, it's been on and off. Now to get this well going again, tired of bathing out of a 5 gallon bucket.
