It's really incredible to see the resiliency and determination of my fellow New Jerseyans. Sometimes we get a bad rap in the media for being "The Soprano State," or from the silly cash-cow reality TV shows featuring Jersey housewives or the Jersey shore kids run wild. But there's really something special and unique about the Garden State and its inhabitants. So many people are pitching in to help, any way they can. I'm now a volunteer "Story Reader" in the Children's Room at the Library. I wish I'd already taken Chagall for his Therapy Dog exam so he could join in! Some of the children come out to my car afterwards to visit him, so for now that will have to do.

We continue to find good old fashion ways to amuse ourselves and others until power, phones and normalcy returns. Not the least of which is finding many creative ways to whip up edibles from the pantry. One nice surprise the Big Bully Storm Sandy brought our way, believe it not, is some tropical sea birds!! My neighhor and I saw a red billed one from the Bahamas (we looked it up in his birder book). At first I thought he and I were having a shared hallucination, but it seems the birds travel in the eye of the hurricane where it's calm for 100's or 1,000's of miles. Sadly, I think it's a one-way trip.

Continued good thoughts going out to all enduring hardships and losses. And endless thanks to all those pitching in to make life better, easier and warmer for those affected.

Thanks, Lou! We're fine and still standing, though as you can see some our trees aren't. Apparently, they wanted "driveway privileges"!

That is so sweet of you, thank you! I think it's working too; the best looking crew of utility workers I've ever seen--a bunch of strapping young bucks from Kentucky, just began working about a mile down the road from us. I gave them a good ole' fashion New Jersey welcome; using some of the wonderful Jersey blueberries I froze from the summer, I whipped up a blueberry pie with crumble topping and took it and two thermoses of coffee to where they were working. They got a kick out that and out of Chagall. They asked where we lived, said they were sorry for the hit we took in the storm and would really try to get power restored to our area by Monday. I told them I just really appreciated that they'd truck on up here to help out. And I know this is naughty and wrong, especially coming from a granny like me, but I have to say those fellows looked more like they should be shimming around poles then up them!

From one granny to another, I think I'd rather cozy up with that blueberry crumble pie!

Just cuz we're Gramas doesn't mean we're blind!....I think blueberry crumble & Binoculars would work for Me!

And Chagall.....I thought of you when I read this..............................

Serenity is not freedom from the storm,
but the peace amid the storm............

Well, Chagall’s mom, it’s just as well that the linesmen that just left weren’t total eye candy, because my husband would have given me the cherry eye if he saw me quivering with anticipation at their arrival, and, he wouldn’t have BELIEVED that my excitement was only due to the electricity being restored..however, these guys were big and brawny and so competent, sothat in my eyes- they are ‘very desirable’ ..and have once again, earned my respect and gratitude. I am not blind to their virtues:-)
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Another 5 days outage after the initial Sandy loss of power was just the cherry on the cake I didn’t need.

We just got our power back--after 13 days! Woohoo to linemen from Kentucky, who were also helped by those from Tennessee. And papoodles, you are right; every one of those guys is like an Adonis to me for what they did. I am now going to tackle the laundry. After hosting an endless parade of neighbors here the past nearly two weeks, I have enough linens and towels to wash to make our well run dry! Power is good!!
