And we are to the weekend which means nothing to retired people. They are all weekends of one sort or another. But I do appreciate those FICA people.

Hey, Spell Chick. I see from the weather forecast that you guys in the Carolina's may be in for a bumpy ride with our friend Florence. What's it look like for your area?
Wherever you go, there you are.

Can't you just picture Patti and Dick riding through the sky on a whirlwind, astride a matching pair of Alligators, singing Somewhere over the rainbow?  Hotly pursued by a copyright lawyer riding a somewhat appropriate swamp rat, threatening to sue them for an unauthorised public performance.

No?  Can't picture it? 

Shame on you.  A writer should be able to imagine at least three impossible things before breakfast ;-)

Just think of all the impossible possibilities.

We hope it veers off, but we are ready for a smaller hurricane and have an invitation to stay elsewhere for a big one. So, I guess I'm ready.

Still, I like my roof attached to my house with all the shingles and whatnot. So I would rather not participate.

I can hear the patter of the keys now.

Dear Weather gods,

I thank you for your gracious invitation to the latest in The Grand Series of Global Weather Events, but I am both unwilling and unable to attend.  I am giving you a suitable clear period of notice so expect you to leave my property undamaged.  If you do not avail yourself of this warning then be assured I will pursue you through the courts to recover any and all damages and costs arising.

Please note I have taken out the extra insurance to cover the 'alligator in flooded kitchen' option.

So far the storm seems to be heading a bit more north of us, heading more for the north part of South Carolina or the south part of North Carolina. I live in central coastal South Carolina. We would still get winds and rain, but not the brunt of the storm. I'm willing to let others have a go at that. But I would prefer the whole thing die out in the ocean itself.

IF there are any alligators in my kitchen, I'm calling FF to come and take of that. She likes danger.

She won't come unless the alligator's on fire.

Imagine that 911 call.

"911, what is your emergency?"

"I'd like to report an alligator on fire."

"I'm sorry, could you repeat that please?"

"Yes. There is an alligator on fire, in my kitchen."

"Is it a cooking fire? Were you cooking the alligator ma'am?"

"No, it came in my kitchen on the tides of the storm, so I lit it on fire to get the fire department here!"

"Oh! Okay, um, what is your address?"

We had a call one night and the print out said horse alight. Naturally we thought it was a typo but it was a horse alight.
