Urban Camping

November 23rd, 2005 by Editor B

It’s been something like twelve weeks since I’ve slept in my own bed.

Until tonight. Tonight we’re camping in our own home. No electricity. No heat.

It’s a mild night in New Orleans.

Scrabble by Candlelight

So it’s Scrabble by candlelight, scotch neat, battery-operated television and an early bedtime for us.

It’s kind of spooky here. No lights in any direction for blocks. No people at all, as far as we can tell.

Our cats appreciate the company.

    Wonderful news – and a great picture.

    Good luck with the termites – that’s some pretty impressive damage. How long until a professional can look at it for you and offer advice?

    Happy Thanksgiving! Our bird is roasted and relatives are expected in two hours. We wish you could share the day with us. Love to you both.

    christy looks lovely by candlelight
    and when did we ever need a national decree to be thankful
    or not–
    the real question is who won at scrabble?

    Thanks y’all for your thoughts. Don’t know when we can find a professional carpenter or such. Everyone here is very busy, and there’s a real shortage of labor because there’s a shortage of housing. As for the Scrabble game, I got lucky that night and won. Xy is almost unbeatable these days.
