I was thinking a new thread would be in order.
Can't imagine what more could happen there.
New home in KY, News ?
I was thinking a new thread would be in order.
Maybe she is getting a new pet or adopting a child or moving back to Louisiana (nah!), or has struck oil on her property or.............................
I'm getting a lot of chuckles out of the response to my 4 little words.
ya'll are too funny.
It is humbling at what happened to us last week, I don't even know where or how to start.
Readers Digest version:
We were scrambling to get heat (propane) for our new home, but the cost wasn't what we needed at this point in our life.We had been trying to save the money, but life kept happening. Hubby was putting in lots of hours overtime, but it just wasn't enough. Faced with having to move back into the camper for heating reasons, someone heard about our situation in a weird way. They went to the propane company and paid for everything. I received a phone call from the propane company wanting to know where I lived because they had a work order that had been paid out. I cried the whole time giving him directions to our place. Now, we really will be warm this winter.
God has been so faithful to us in so many ways, it makes my head spin.
It is so hard to be in the position we are in...having to accept help from strangers. We've always, in our marriage prior to Katrina & Rita, been able to take care of ourselves. My husband and I are hard workers and have never asked for anything, but yet our needs keep getting met in weird ways. It just blows me away. It is still hard for me to talk about.
Lisa....someone is "paying it forward"...isn't that lovely. Jo
I never thought I'd be so happy to hear that Lisa has gas!
(Well...ya'll know what I mean...).
Congrats, Lisa and Family. Ya'll will be warm as toast with room to move this coming Winter!
LOL, Shoe, what a 'stinker' you are! Lisa, that's great news! With all the horrible things going on in the world, it sure is wonderful to hear that there are still good people doing good things.
How wonderful for you! Praise the Lord! The Lord provides for our needs when we put our faith and trust in Him.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Lisa, could you maybe sell some of those delicious-sounding pralines I kept hearing about before the roundup (that I didn't make it to)? I would certainly buy some as Christmas gifts, as my native New Orleanian family can't get them here!
I usually lurk in this thread time to time and am glad i did this time.
I remember being at times iwth finacial strain, i had to make decisions ,heat ,food, or pay a bill. Being a single mom.
I have been blessed with some good fortune and though at times it makes me uncomftable. I find blessings in it to help others as i was once helped.
God leads us to those who need us most and vice a versa :)
i m so glad to hear someone found you. Warm hearts all around you this winter Lisa
LOL@Shoe.....! I'm happy I will be having gas too!!
taynors, thanks for sharing your story.
KyWoods, I used to sell my pralines at the Farmers Market in Thibodaux before we moved up here. I hope next year to be involved in the Farmers Market here. I didn't know your family was from N.O. how'd I miss that? How long have they been gone from there?
Lisa, I remember a time when you still lived in La and you were amazed that funny lookin' trucks delivered gas to people's homes, "complete with a hose that plugs into their house" (or something to that affect)!
Now, look at ya! ♫Movin' on up....♫. You have your very own tank and each month a funny lookin' truck will swing by to fill it up for ya!
This Winter is gonna be SO much different for ya'll than last year was! (I hope it snows a lot; nothing better'n playing in the snow then coming inside to a warm kitchen and having hot chocolate and bake brownies!)
Hugs to all.
Oh Shoe! How poetic!! (and true). Let's all go to Lisa's for a Snow Party!! Jo
Lisa, my parents, sister and I left N.O. in about 1960, and moved to Kansas City, Kansas (from hurricane zone to tornado zone!), then moved here to northern KY in 1964. We visited several times, but I haven't been there since my grandmother died in 1983. What I miss most besides family, are the crawfish and crab boils and the Elmer's Gold Brick easter eggs!
ah Elmers..how 'bout Hubigs Pies? gotta miss those. oh, and snow balls..yum.
So, if ya'll moved in '60 you missed Hurricane Betsy then. I remember Betsy.
forgot to add: Bernie, what 'cha using the building for? It looks great ..
Yep, we missed Hurricane Betsy. Don't remember Hubigs Pies, but I asked my Mom, and she does. They have "sno-cones" here at only a couple little shacks, and they're pretty good, but the closest I've found were the "shave-ice" in Hawaii--nice, finely shaved ice.
Lisa, maybe it's the fact that you and your DH don't ask for help that you get the help.
Shoe - you got me laughing so hard and I so need it.
I heard chocolate too!!
The existing building is our cabinet shop. The addition on the end is a place to store done things. The space along the back will be a staining & varnish room.
We have lots of work lined up.
Nice when people help out without asking. Only help I can find thinks they need to be paid!
Have a nice evening,
Yay! And back to bare feet, too! Yay! (Again!)
How nice to see you sitting on top of the propane tank with that big smile! Praise the Lord!
First thing she does to celebrate is get tanked...
Hitch your wagon to the stars, girlfriend! :D
LOL @ gardenwife! Good one!
Yes, Lisa, good to see your smiling face.
Yay, Lisa has gas for the winter! You'll be surprised how much more fun the winter can be when you have a roomy toasty place to go and thaw ;~) I'm so happy for you and the family.
great pic Lisa
I saw a shirt at Wally something about gas . If i see i will send it to you Lisa lolol and it had a can of beans on it too.
Oh it said " i have gas , don't make me use it " hehhhehehe
i will keep my eyes open for it. for you's
shoe crack me up
best to you Lisa
I saw in country woman mag that a lady painted her propane tank a pink pig
best to you
I remember Betsy well. I remember going into the yard during the eye and then having to go back inside for the second round. She really packed a wallop.
I grew up with propane tanks. Actually used to be butane. I always put my saddle on them and rode that "pony" from sea to shining sea.
