mandeville la , bill...my car has full coverage , her honda was a 96 , paid for so only kept liability..just moved into this complex saturday ....

just had a new windshild put in at 3pm today, and was having new tires put on both in the morning....

i can only hope my car trailer and truck didn't get flooded where it's at..everything we own is in that trailer and was going to be bringing it up to robert nelms place in a few days...

the cigarette should be ok unless the roof blew off the building it's in....that is the least of our problems though....

Eric..sorry to hear that..if you had insurance it could not be so bad..on the loss of the vehicles the ins. comp. are pretty good on what the value was...at least that how it was during Katrina. Good Luck and congrats on the sale of your home.

Sorry Eric.
You certainly didn't need another hit like this.
I hope you can get it all worked out quickly.
Take care of that little girl - you can replace the rest.

just got internet back ,car is still under . that altima was a good car. bought it from reed estarbrook on here..

this is f'd up. took some pics ,need to find the dam cable to download them , box somewhere.

bayou, i'm at cypress lakes accross from state police..

jeff, full insurance on the altima..

what's a 96 accord worth vs full coverage cost today..kinda was my thinking ,we dropped that years ago since it had over 160k miles.
yeah , got a sale (lucky?) .. (entergy relo) , ...thanks for the words...

now i know how it feels when i watch the news and see people flash flooded like this. always terrible seeing it on tv.

happened so quick..never think it can happen to you..

bouy- took a nice hit on manday , backing the trailer to air truck tires i just deceided to back it into the shop , dam door was down just enough to break off the dam plastic roof vent.

note to everyone - it's a bitc h to change!!!!!

today i hit a daily double

majic , i was going to call you friday ,looked like weather was going to be right .. and thanks again for the hospitality..true gentleman..
