It can get a little hairy down in the French Quarter, Molly....we see alligators everyday in Creole, I caught a 5' about 6 weeks or so ago just playing around, I didn't hurt him and I let him go after.

It's pretty yucky...especially if you wait...2-3 days max and everything starts molding and mildewing...I'm doing pretty good though, so far.... The city is picking up storm debris, you just have to separate it, limbs can be no longer than 5 ft. and 6" in diameter, so you cut them up with the chainsaw before stacking them and they're going to start picking up appliances tomorrw and then early next week, they'll start picking up carpeting and furniture and then hopefully they'll be picking up fencing by the end of next week.

i was about to post:
"Michelle, you are amazing."
but Molly beat me to it.

i can't even fathom what it must be like down there.
but here you are posting, "getting on with your life", like its nothing.

your posts are "good" for the rest of us. i think we all learn so much from each other. not just the health stuff; the life stuff too.

I was wondering if they came and picked up that stuff for you guys if it was left to you guys to dispose of it somewhere.

I can't even begin to imagine what that would smell like after it starts to grow mold and everything. EWWW!!!!

Yes, they do, the only thing that'll mess you up on that is if you can't throw it out while the city is running the storm debris trucks they're...for instance, if your insurance adjuster hasn't been there yet and you need the debris to prove your loss, that happened to me last time, I wouldn't touch a thing until my insurance adjuster came, it took him 7 months to get here, so this time I took pictures and threw it out anyway...and they say we didn't learn anything from hurricane Katrina!!....pffftt

So, here's my Michelle's a doofus story of the day....I wanted to go see if the pet rescue was set up yet but the only vehicle over here that I had any luck with is one of the shrimp trucks....so here I am driving around a box-truck with FRESH SHRIMP on all four sides in HUGE 15" red letters...but hey, it gets me around and it has A/C so I go down to the coliseum and the staging ground is set up and 18 wheelers are there full of supplies from private donors...it's utterly awesome to see what animal lovers donate for the orphaned animals, I helped after Katrina & Rita and I was just amazed at this operation, the goal is to assemble 700 crates a day to put rescued animals in and fly them out to foster homes all over the country, they'll get top notch vet care and shots and baths and de-worming and hugs and kisses and of course all the food and water they can stand before they leave here...the volunteer ratio is 1 volunteer per 5 animals...that's pretty good and they have been through so much that they all get along beautifully, I've got pictuers of cats and dogs sleeping together after being rescued in '05. So, anyhoo, they finally opened the 1-800 line for people who have evacuated to call in and give their address if they've left a pet behind and they can't get back to their home and we go and break in their home and rescue their animals...my favorite job...there have been over 10,000 calls today already we were told....Well, when I got to the arena area, there was a church using the parking lot to distribute hot meals, bags full of staple goods, toiletries and ice & water to whomever needed it...if there weren't 400 cars in line, my name aint Michelle but anyway, the coolest part was that the youth members of the church were directing traffic and everything was nice and orderly and efficient...

What I mean by cool is that you have captured and released alligators (which, for me, counts as cool!), you raise and train rescue dogs, and despite any pain or difficulty you have in your own life (which is a lot right now!), you're helping all these other people and animals. I think that's awesome. Also, it's an everyday thing for you, and you don't seem to even consider doing different. That makes it even cooler.

Thanks Sue...that's a very nice compliment, it helps my mind to stay busy, I think it helps everyone's mind, it takes the sting out of it....there were a lot of "feel good" stories down here in '05 but the news stations don't want to report that, the sad truth is, those kind of stories don't make the ratings go up...
