At this moment

At this moment, the National Weather Service shows Wilma pounding elsewhere.
Our local NOAA hazardous weather bulletin concerns the drought. Fire ban. No burning.
No rain.

Here in the Backwater, October is a dry month. How weird that the Largest National Disaster in the U.S.A where wind driven rain damaged just about everything that the flooding didn't ruint (please pronounce "ruin" with a "t" at the end. Gutteral grunt in a half-hearted fashion as you pronounce, y'all).

Dry here. Very dry. Hair does better with humidity as we have learned to look great in 95 % humidity. However, the World's Greatest Hairdresser tried out "a new color line" (hairdresserese for "new chemicals") on somebody around here. That somebody has nutmeg brown hair. She has taken to wearing her "Life is Good" cap pulled down to her ears. Brown hair? I doubt she'll adjust. She's a durn red-head.

Life is just tough here. You think you are working on your attitude and learning, as St. Paul urged, to be happy whatever because of who God is for us. Does that include the worst coloring fiasco one has ever seen?

(note to self: I thought you weren't going to blog about your hair. Isn't this blog supposed to be about uplifting numinous spiritual issues? Please go back and review your blog Mission Statement and Visioning Goals.---Ed.)

Busy Looking for Mission Statement...,

I was going to look into whether FEMA would pay for a dye job to cover all the extra gray hairs on my head that are due to Rita ramifications. Now I'm not so sure!

I am glad you got the "ruint" pronunciation right - down in the south, things aren't "ruined" the are ruint.

The mission of your blog is right where it should be and your spirituality shines (though you may not see it) right through.

If anything you are a beacon for sharing the plight of your world and those around you for those of us that are praying for you. As you share, we know how and what to pray for. Our prayers become more focused and intentional.

The indignity of ruint hair cannot be understated. I've had my hair ruint before. It's not a pleasant thing. I do love the word ruint.

I believe that the LIfe is Good hat should be tax deductible as disaster relief. (That is if we can trust your definition of your hair as being ruint)
