A bad attitude and a bunch of moaning and griping have never in my life made a bad situation better. This is a valuable lesson that I have only recently learned. A hearty laugh and a good attitude are will ALWAYS carry you through whatever lemons life throws you.

Smile Good for you!!

Great attitude, wishing you and your family all the best. Saw a documentary on Katrina the other day and they were saying how another group of unsung heroes were the coast guard folks who worked round the clock to rescue people from rooftops. That is before, during, and after all the other official helpers came around. They (CG) didn't have to work so long, they chose to keep working, in fact it said they were supposed to stop because of the shift limits but they were allowed to keep going because of the need! The narrator said they saw rescues that needed to be done and just did them. We need to celebrate the good things people do in times of disaster! You've got to be proud to be working with such a fine bunch of folks!

Thanks for the tips about the campgrounds. Family stayed in Covington during Jazz Fest/FQ fest. We're hoping Abita will be repaired next year...
