Mancat Monday


Do you think Ping knows
how to relax?

***
Mom has been tending to the mess
that Hurricane Irma so kindly bestowed upon us.
Firstly, we count our blessings that
our home was not impacted, truly we do.
Because literally across the street
people are having to gut their homes
from flooding.
But, being older than dirt, Mom just can't
do as much of the yardwork as she once did.
So she has been doing what she could, as
she could.
She came into contact with a local
Boy Scout group, none of whom she knew
in any way. They said they would come by
and help. Mom was so appreciative of the
offer, but she really didn't think total
strangers would show up to help her out.
GUESS WHAT?
This last week a group of about 25 Boy
Scouts showed up and helped Mom get her
downed fence cut up and to the curb,
cut down half fallen limbs and
helped pick up loose debris in the
yard. In about 2 hours they were able to
do it all. What would have taken Mom
weeks they did in just a few hours.
Mom was in total gratitude to them for
doing this.
Not just the help, but seeing such fine young
men doing something they were enjoying
and being so respectful.
It gave Mom a different appreciation for
the youth in our community.
So, a huge shout out
to Troop #653 in our community
for helping an old woman in time of need.

sunday selfies


Mom is helping me do this early
because we don't know what impacts
we will be dealing with from #IRMA.

So today I'm joining
for sunday selfies blog hop.

I may still be without power
but I wanted to make sure to join
everyone with their selfies.

UPDATE:
Why that nasty Irma
has passed and we are now in
the clean up stage.
So much debris.
But, no complaints, just
a lot of work.
Power is back on,
for the majority of the entire
State of Florida.
It is amazing what the ALL
the electric companies did
and what our amazing Governor
did too.
They were prepared.
As hard as it is to be without
power to have nearly everyone
connected back to power
is simply amazing
considering it was less than
a full week ago
Irma came for a visit.
