shhhhh it's a secret! why, why is it still a secret?

Captain John has just called from the dock. He was up to the wee hours. He took an old shrimp boat net that he had, and used a blow torch to cut it in pieces. He then attached it to long poles. He made his own scoops. Long handles, big nets! Do you love this man or what? I have also noted that something mysterious has happened to my stash of Dawn dishwashing liquid that I bought at the discount surplus warehouse. They are advising you us not to attempt to help the animals unless you are trained as the oil is toxic, and could cause harm to you. Sure, sure, I can just bet he's gonna play by those rules. He has also gotten calls for jobs, we will decide where he goes tonight when I get home. Will you pray for his safety? I know you will, I will return all of your emails, starting tonight, you know you all mean the world to us. Captain John just said on the phone, "Tell em' I'm all over it!"

All we can do right now, is just react the smartest, wisest way we can. Do you know how many people here in Podunk Mississippi have no clue what's happening. By now they know what's happening, they just don't know what an effect it will have on our lives.

I am so pissed that the only place I could find this map today is on the website for the BBC. Pisses me off, boy, it pisses me off, that they are hiding the facts. I know it's to divert panic, but damn people what the hell? These people have a right to know. Would you believe that one local newspaper reporter, actually wrote the words "a lovely rainbow like sheen is atop the water" What are you freaking kidding me?

I am not surprised however, as the forecasters in the UK were the source we relied on for Katrina. They were dead on. We learned then to go to them, for our information. They no more than Fashion across the big water...love you Divas!

I am the big star in the middle of the picture, Lori The Shopaholic, and my nesting sea turtles at The Redneck Riveria are the star to the right.

Love you all,
The Bumpkin
