I just finished a cell phone conversation with SeanB down in Houston. He has been (and still is) without power since the hurricane. He is sharing a generator with a next door neighbor so he has enough power to run the TV and the refridgerator and a few lights and that's it. He has had no internet service and, for a while, no cell phone service.
He asked me to pass on to everyone that his family is doing fine and getting by until the power is restored. (If any of you have been without power in a hot climate for more than a day or two, you know what he's going through).
On a business note, he asked that those of you that may have made donations for a lifetime membership to wait another few days and he'll get to a computer at his work and get caught up on acknowledging those.
He also asked that everyone not PM or email him unless it's of the utmost importance. He is concerned that he's already got hundreds to respond to and he won't be able to catch up if he gets inundated with more.
If you'd like to "just give him a shout", I would suggest you just add to this thread as much as you like. He should be able to get on the net this evening or tomorrow and I'm sure he'd be happy to hear from ya'll.
Here's a real bummer.........apparently a tree fell directly into his swimming pool and he didn't get one picture! In such a hurry to save his pool, he broke out the chainsaw and cleaned it all up before he realized what he'd done. TFP loves pictures and he knows it........very self-centered, if you ask me.
Most importantly, he wanted to pass on that he never ran out of beer!!! He said, "I had to drink Miller Lite a couple of nights but I never ran out!"
Since he's under such post-hurricane duress, I chose not to get in a beer argument with him but, please, Miller Lite is my favorite!! (that I can afford)
