don't be so paranoid. they'll let you know when the "big" one is coming at us again.

Yes just like 2 days before Katrina hit and "they" promised us it was heading up the Florida coast into the panhandle.

Keep your eyes shut, but your ears open and maybe it won't get ya!

Ok, point taken. I was getting my hair colored the morning they shouted "leave". Of course I had to have that done first before I decided to leave.

Then there were three said...

you must have an easy job as gallery accountant. i'm sure not much money comes thru there.

I am worse than you.

On Sunday morning I woke up and all hell had broken loose. The Mayor the head of the hurricane center and Governor Blanco were all on TV yelling at us to get out.

I started to have a panic attack - then realized that my hair really needed to be dyed as we were probably going to have no electricity and no water.

So - that’s what I did instead of trying to evacuate. Dye my hair - It would have been a bright orange if I had died.

I must be a touched in the head, but that is a true story.

ttw3,

Actually, I am a CPA for a privately held corporation.

But I am also the gallery accountant and you are right not much money comes through. Now I did sell a $35,000.00 William Tolliver piece a couple of months ago; which merited a bottle of Crystal and bit of beluga on crispy pieces of toast.

Raspootin- are you making fun of me getting my hair dyed before leaving? I sense a touch of sarcasm in there. Anyway, the important stuff.. you didn't invite me to have some Crystal with you. I'll skip the beluga on crispy pieces of toast.

Raspootin said...

I am sorry to say there was no sarcasm involved. I really did die my hair...

Consider yourself invited next time I make a big sale!

I'm sorry your hair died, but you are getting up there in years.

How true, but it is better than the alternative.

Thanks for pointing out my dying error. I am glad that you are paying such close attention.
