tiki410 I am so glad to see you and your family are ok and out of harms way. PJ has been concerned about you and asks often if there has been any news from you, I'll be happy to tell her you have checked in and are safe and sound.

Anyone that speaks to PJ please let her know that if she needs a respite from the hotel living to come stay with us. We got a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo. Its sparse but it has to be better than a hotel. She can even bring the kitties.



that is so cool

Hi guys...

I have some limited computer access, so I wanted to send out a quick message.

We're all doing as well as can be expected. The staff at our hotel has been wonderful to us. We are a lot better off than a lot of other N.O residents.
(I've just seen a shot of the football stadium near my house, the water is up to the bottom bar of the goalposts... Dawntiki has been giving me reports that she's found online, and I think it's most likely that my house has water up to the roof.)

But I have my husband, my parents, my aunt, my best friend, and my kitties with me. I'm sure when I am able to get back to my property, I'll be in shock all over again, but for now we are all safe and reaonably comfortable.

I am overwhelmed by the offers of assistance and good wishes from TCers. I am sorry I haven't been able to respond to the phone calls, but service is sporadic and they've asked that we keep non-emergency calls to a minimum.

We will be able to stay at the hotel for a few more weeks, and we are looking for a house to rent for all of us.

Needless to say, I am not exactly thinking straight at the moment, and I'd like to say a lot more but the words just won't come.

So for now, heartfelt thanks to everyone from me and my family. Your concern has been like a warm blanket straight out of the dryer on a cold night.

Nice to hear from you Jader! I keep reminding Gavin & Leroy just how well off they are, and if they don't fully appreciate it, their kibble will be sent to your pet posse in their time of need.

Can we start a fund of some kind to assist PJ and her family? I want to help but don't know how. (other than the red cross but I mean to Purple Jade)

Well I just saw the post about helping the victims.

Anyone know about:
Mary Wahl - Metarie, LA
Armead Prince - Metarie, LA
Kim Coburn - Beachin - Denham Springs, LA
Joey Ward - Gulf Shores, AL
Greg Parker - Denham Springs, LA

These are regulars at Hukilau and other events, but not all on TC.

I am going to start an 'Ebay for PJ' thread where I will be selling off some odd tiki items and other fun stuff on Ebay and sending the proceeds to PJ and her critters via Paypal. I'll be putting the first stuff on this weekend, and if you want to join in the effort, either by buying or selling, feel free. More info to come, but I just wanted to give people a heads up in case they want to join in.

Just note you cannot put in your ebay auction that it is a fundraising auction unless it is an official Ebay-approved charity.

However, there ARE some Kartina releief officially approved charities tied in with Ebay, so if you want to do that, it's also a good idea!

Also among the missing: Fats Domino & Irma Thomas. Allen Toussaint was found in the Superdome (which sounds like something out of Dante: trash fires, overflowing toilets, not enough food, water or medicine, reports of rape, murder & suicides, dead bodies left in the sun...). The Neville Brothers lost everything bu they're all OK. And there's some question about where Alex Chilton is.

I don't know if it's related to the hurricane but blues great R.L. Burnside died today.

Whew! It's good to see an actual response from PJ herself. Now if Beachin and the others would just check in.

If there is anything I can do to help I'm open to suggestions. I feel pretty useless/helpless right now. Though I am donating $$ via my wife because her company will match $ for $. But if anyone gets a charity auction going let me know and I will donate some of my prints.
