    I have been stuck here for the past two months living on a barge while we salvage shrimp boats by the hundreds. No telephones within an hours drive, cell phones only work sometimes if you happen to be standing in exactly the right place with the proper leg extended, wireless internet works sometimes but seldon long enough to up load more than a single file. Lunch is often MREs provided by the salvation army or red cross. Still find dead bodies occassionally floating by (what's left of them). Raccoons are prospering and getting fat. Just moved to Lake Charles and it is very different here; phones and internet actually work....even a few open bars (Bourbon Stret in New Orleans is open but only one woman for fifty men...kind a sucks).
    maybe get to hang out a little once in a while now...miss you guys and gals....Seacowboys

    Take care of yourself seacowboys, take care of yourself. It's not a pleasant job but somebody has to do it. Hope it gets to the point where you can visit more often soon.

    We all miss you too.
