Sure there is a lot of serious business going on here, but I am trying to not lose my sense of humor. As Jimmy Buffett said, "If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane"
We moved out of our apartment and in to the school for the foreseeable future. While we were waiting for a truck to come get us Katie and I started singing. At first it was just Amazing Grace, but then it became our favorite Pat Green and Stoney LaRue songs. We two stepped around our apartment to Take Me Out To a Dance Hall. I laughed so hard I cried. It was the first time I have cried since Tuesday. There like I said, there isn't much to laugh at here but I am trying to do my best.
I am really hungry, I was driving around Port today and say lots of live stock. I immediately weighed the pros and cons of slaughtering that animal and bar-b-queing it. Really. There is tons of tomato paste here, there are hot peppers and some molasses. I could make a sauce, there is charcoal all over this city. It shouldn't be too hard.
We worked at Q Chapel again today. Katie helped treat wounds while I monitored the crowds and carried wounded on a stretcher, my very own M*A*S*H moment. I have finally seen some of the CNN coverage. It is as bad as they are saying closer to downtown, but we are doing well. Not to much violence and looting but we are all steeling ourselves for it.
I wanted to take a moment to thank again, everyone who has commented, donated, or just provided encouragement to us. There are days that all we emotionally survive on are your encouragement. Really thank you.
