Good morning!!!

It's a beautiful day outside - you'd never know that there is a hurricane coming!!

One thing that drives me nuts about hurricanes (small complaint) - the OVER-USE of the phrase "HUNKER DOWN" by the newscasters, public officials, meteorologists, etc. LOL! Every other sentence they say "just hunker down" or "you'd better hunker down" or "everybody needs to hunker down". And then the switch to the weatherman who gives great advice like "hunker down with your friends" or "those in mobile homes should go hunker down with family in stable houses". And then they go to Jeb Bush who tells us "it's time to hunker down". Seriously - I heard it something like 30 times in one broadcast, lol.

It also cracks me up to hear Governor Jeb Bush keep talking about how he "is in negotiations with the President of the United States to send in reinforcements" or "I have been discussing with the President of the United States about whether we should declare Florida a National Disaster Area", etc. I mean, that's his brother for chrissakes, hehe. They make it sound so formal.

Enough about that!!!!

Oh! tigerpixieart - the "Pixie Cats" painting I did of your furbabies is the #1 picture up at Artwanted - check it out - ArtWanted.comTop ten! Your kitties are famous, hehe!!!!

Let me see...... I'm working on some orders and email & stuff like that =P We got a huge shipment out to the post office this morning, since we won't be able to ship for a few days - they are closing later today, and will be closed tomorrow of course for the Hurricane, and then Sunday they are always closed, and Monday is Labor Day, and then depending on damage hopefully they will open up on Tuesday. They are telling us now that the hurricane is moving very slowly (not really losing strength, but actually physically travelling slowly), and it will probably get to the Celebration/Disney area at about 10:00am on Sunday. They are asking us to stay off of the streets starting at 11:00am tomorrow though, and to stay indoors until the hurricane leaves =P

Later on I will be painting!!! You'll be able to watch me HERE - I'll probably be working off and on.
