    Thanks again friends. I'm sure it was all the good thoughts that have caused Ike to spare us. This is still a dangerous storm, and I don't discount the many ways that it can still hurt us. The most dangerous of these in my mind is that conditions will be favorable for tornadoes to develop. Still, compared to two days ago, when a direct hit from a cat four hurricane was being predicted with a high degree of confidence, I am giddy with relief.

    The turd in the Punch bowl at this party is that Cuba is getting pounded and Ike may threaten the Gulf Coast as a major hurricane. To all our friends there, please don't allow Gustav fatigue to make you cut corners or take unwise risks with Ike. Stay safe.

    Absolutely! All 70,000,000 of us gay Keys residents and the 25,000 gay tourists were spared because God loves gays. In fact, I'm starting to think she is a lesbian. BTW, are you seeing anybody? I'm sure that one of the Keys gay commercial fishermen would love to rock your world.

    Glad you're safe Foolish, wouldn't want you to miss the butt-whoopin' the Eagles are gonna get come a week from now Unless that Lesbian God Lady is an Eagles' fan, then I might have to eat my words. But I wouldn't mind that if Satan is also a lesbian, a Bad Girl lesbian with dark red lipstick, and is a Cowboys' fan, and she and the godly lesbian decide to fight it out after the game, wearing nothing but fig leaf thongs - to the sure benefit of all mortal men, straight or gay, no matter what NFL team they root for

    God has no love for the Cowboys - it's in the bible. Y'all have no chance. Kristi is going to the game. You know how Romo tanks when hot girls are in the stands.

    Beyond the levity, let's not forget that Ike has killed people and is threatening many more. Please remember to keep them in your thoughts.

    Glad you're safe and high....above the seas. Plus it gives a helluva excuse to party into the wee hours, as evidence by your earlier emails

    Me thinks we have yet to see the wrath of Ike.

    Thanks, DE. The party's over for this old fool in relation to Ike. I'm looking forward to a little Rest and Recovery. Right at the moment I'm trying to invent a cure using rum, ice, Key limes, club soda, with a splash of cola. There's a double header Monday Night Football. I have power. Life on the couch is good tonight.

    Ike did a lot of harm before ever reaching Cuba. Let's hope his death toll gets no larger.

    One can't forget the deaths and destruction, Foolish, if they consider themselves human - whether people believe in a god or not, it shouldn't be a factor to any man or woman when empathy for all of humanity's suffering can be given, and shared, for those gone, and those wounded remaining who look at us with thousand yard stares, so shocked that tears have yet to come into their eyes. I think about such tragedy in the world most every day, and can only wonder why it is so arbitrary, and even wonder why I remain somewhat relatively unscathed. The world isn't fair nor safe, and those who die from storms and fires and earthquakes and floods and murder and whatall else afflicts much of mankind daily, I can only wish they have gone to somewhere where the seas are calm, the offshore wind is 3mph, and the sun shines the way each person dreams is the most perfect...and smiles are worn as easily as an old favorite tshirt.

    I'm glad you're safe Foolish.

    As to Kristi, Romo will be ok. She'll be eyeing Witten all night
