my dad....

is in Biloxi, MS    i just received a phone call from him    he and my stepmother are there now   not sure how long they've been there helping out, but they'll be there for another 2 weeks at least     he said they unloaded 2 trailers of donations today and turned around and gave it all away too ....i  military trained there  in Biloxi  when i was young.....anyways, dad was telling me there's no beach there anymore   no 4way highway lane either  all the shops on the front are gone   a 25ft boat was found in the Walmarts parking lot 14miles inland   everywhere they go there's debris everywhere    it's a real mess there   i told him if i was retired, i'd be down there to help out as well   it's going to take years to rebuild when they do   after talking with him, i wondering how bad Mobile AL is   a fellow j-lander lives there and has endured the storm   she noted an entry a couple days ago to let all of us know she's ok and her family is safe   thank goodness!    God Bless them all, the victims, the rescuers, the animals, and all those lending a hand...
