Dad and Panda arrived last night, it's been a long week for all of us, especially Panda ... she looks good (cute as can be) but has not been eating well with all that's going on. They both need to get settled in, looks like it may be quite a while before anyone gets back into New Orleans for anything.
It's mind boggling to think about being completely misplaced in the world. Your home, your business, everything you own with the exception of the dog, the car and a couple of your favorite shirts,
One of the hardest things seems to be the fact that communication has been shut off into that area. It's our experience that the cell phone service is available for out going calls but not for incoming which makes locating friends and family that live in the area almost impossible.
I'm sure that there are online services set up somewhere to help people locate each other, I will be looking into that for him as time permits. If any of you know where we could get started, the information would be appreciated.
For the moment, off to the gym and then to work, life does go on. Our refugees will be spending the day with my sister at the party store ... still observing Panda and Angie the Doberman, don't want to leave them alone yet until hierarchy is established. Neither of the dogs are aggressive (at all) but ultimately one will become Alfa, it could quite possible be little Panda because she has a voice and that's quite intimidating to Angie who likes things nice and quiet.
