    Thank you! We did on the most part. My island suffered no damages, but a couple of our southern islands did, one in particular is practically uninhabitable so those residents (who had chosen to stay behind and ride-out the storm after they were asked to evacuate prior to Irma) were evacuated to Nassau as a result. But all in all, the Bahamas was spared and we all came out pretty well. I am sorry for all who didn't, but at least it leaves the capital in a position now to be able to help out those who need us.

    I do believe there are reasons for things like this, tough as it may be at the time, Lisa. Another, better offer will be available in the days ahead, just watch. My prayers remain with you both, best wishes. Keep that chin up...okay? :hug:'s

    She's in my prayers, Kim. You certainly have the right to be nervous, I sure would be. :hug:'s

    Was listening to an old podcast where someone said how amazing it is to find support on the boards. My issue may be smaller than some, and I add my thoughts and prayers to everyone reaching out with theirs.

    When I separated from my husband 9 years ago I was left with our home. Too big for me to afford to live in I put it on the market with the hopes to sell. Due to the downturn in the economy at that time it was on the market for a year with barely any showings. I was lucky enough after that to have a renter for 5 years, but the place got pretty beat up as a result. It has been on the market now for another year and a half and still no luck selling. I am to the point where I cannot afford to maintain it for much longer.

    if you are so inclined, please add me to your thoughts and prayers list, that I find a buyer for my house.

    For sure, zonkvadr. I bet a buyer comes along real soon. If priced right, it will sell.

    What a great looking little guy. So young, only 11 months. So sorry to hear this, Mari. :hug:'s

    Know well, and let your son and daughter-in-law know about that bridge, it is there.......

    [​IMG]Rainbow Bridge [​IMG]



    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers.

    Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.


    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
