Man, I used to be OK with the things, but now every little tremor has me scrambling. I guess the faq-ing media killed it for me with all of the "Big One" doom and gloom stories....Not to mention my mug collection is currently on my wall mounted shelves that are very slightly leaning out/downwards. I really need to stop lagging on the museum putty! 3.2 today, 8.6 tomorrow, but when!???

If it's an 8.6,pal
putty ain't gonna help!

just remember..
it's always something
and if it ain't one thing it's another
and you can run but can't hide...

hence my new formed collection of titanium lumps!
built to last!

felt one last night
and BOOM! kind of thump
and then a little shrug...

have we learned nothing from the examples of Pompeii!?!?!

and what about the Yellowstone Caldera?
look that up and try to sleep at night!

every day is a gift!
here today
rattled or burnt tomorrow....

I enjoy a good little temblor too, but I know some day it will do in some treasures of mine and NO...I am not prepared. The fire storms in California seem to be the worse disasters we have suffered in recent years. It is getting harder and harder to protect our massive hoards of cr_p, but won't stop the influx of useless decorative items to my home.

Hang in there and enjoy the ride...you too may be a dot on a map!!!
