Here's the story on FEMA running out of money...

FEMA IS BROKE


BUT...PJ, there IS hope...check THIS out, just in Friday...

CONGRESS OKS MORE FLOOD INSURANCE BORROWING...KATRINA CLAIMS PAYMENTS TO RESUME

So you will be able to get your money. The word was that unless Congress ponied up more money, a lot of people (including you) would have excellent grounds for suing the federal guvmint. Mind you, although being part of possibly the hugest lawsuit in US history might be more lucrative than a FEMA payout, this will probably be faster .

In the meantime, if you need help holding the bank at bay while FEMA changes its institutional sanitary undergarment, let us know. I figure a mortgage payment in New Orleans will look like a little fuzzy bunny compared to the vicious rabid jackal I'm shelling out each month in NoCal...no way will the evil bank be allowed to foreclose on your home!!! We love you!!!

Oh PJ - I haven't got the words to express how angry I feel about the government's complete failure to keep the faith with the victims of Katrina. And there are no words that can begin to express my sorrow for your situation.

I don't know if it will help, but I've sent messages to all of my state representatives/senators as well as as many of Louisiana's that would accept my out of district zip code, and what the hell - 60 Minutes - to see if there is any way to get your plight (as well as the thousands of other folks in the same situation) back into the public's awareness.

If I had money - it would be yours. All I have to offer is any and all emotional support that I can give. I wish there was more...

we could put in on a merciful friend's or relative's property. But we can't have the cats in it. So that's not an option at all.



I will take one of your cats, if that will help with your housing situation. I live in California but I'm sure we can figure out the transportation part.

Thanks ookoo lady, but even if I would part with any one of them, that would be but a drop in the ocean.
I've lost just about everything else comforting and familiar to me, there's no way I'm giving up my cats too.

PJ, I am very sorry for your losses. I hope and pray for you and you're family. Hang in there girl! We do care. I hope these positive words will help in some way.

A drop in the ocean... or a grain of sand in the litterbox.

Oh PJ, that really really sucks. Please keep us informed as to what can be done to help you, and if there is any light at the end of the tunnel.

It's things like this that really make me thankful (on this Thanksgiving Day) for the most basic things that most take for granted. Like a clean, safe and pleasant home for example. I almost wonder if the renters there have the easier way out by being able to just move away and start over somewhere else without a house to try to salvage or sell first. But I understand it just may not be that easy when you are attached to a city, especially one like New Orleans.

But just in case you are wondering PJ, my best friend just moved to Cabot, Arkansas 6 months ago and bought a 3 bedroom/2 bath house (about 1600 sq. ft) for around $100,000. She was really apprehensive about the move at first, but now she loves it there. (Her husband was offered a good job there.)

I also understand the desire to rebuild, no matter what. I hope and pray that things will begin to turn soon for you and there will be hope after all. And that one day, not too far away, you will have your clean, safe and pleasant home once again.
