Hi to everybody on a nice and sunny sunday afternoon in Puerto Rico!

A couple of days after the power was restored, the telephone company decided it was their turn. The whole area around here has been without telephone for almost two weeks. Today somebody must have decided it had been long enough and pushed a button or so...

Anyway, we're back and it's good to see you all!

Glad you are alright and back amongst us...

Seems as though your storm season is winding down...Good thing too...

Now you get to tell us all winter how nice it is when we are crotch-deep in snow...

Payback's a bugger...

Yup, the season is almost over and it looks like we've had it for this year... We're just fine and were lucky this year. Only one tropical storm..The folks in Florida had a worse time..

Our weather?? Do you really wanna know??

O.K. then.. Today was pretty warm.. around 90 F ( 32 C ) Forecast for this week: about the same...Looks like we're going to have a little rain, though.. Here in the mountains it's cooling down to the low seventies at night, but we're still going to need the airco at night..

glad to see you both back - surprising how things can become part of our lives but they can. we had one gal up here who just got fitted for a prosthetic leg after suffering an accident in may.i tell people think about what you have done since may. then think about doing it again without walking. :)

Hey DC!

How you're doing? We sure hope you're doing better and can go home soon!

About the lady with her leg... That really makes one think... Wish her all the best from us here in PR!
Take care and get well soon!

Welcome back, glad you two are doing better. You and those folks in the hurricane areas sure have had a tough time of it this year.
do not pay any attention to the man behind the curtain, aka Toolman

Hey Ron,

Oh well, it wasn't too bad after all.. Life has been back to normal for week or two now. Just being without a landline is a pain in the butt...
Internet is kind of a life line for us so we're glad we're back online.

About the man behind the curtain, I sent a picture, didn't I? Don't you see the big smile on the blue balloon?? LOL

Hi Gene,

Sure hope this was it for this year..The season officially ends Nov. 30th but the last 6 weeks are normally not very active..

I'll answer your email soon ( got like 200 mails to answer... )

Take care, Gerrit

Glad to see you're both ok : )

Gerrit    Posted 10-10-2004 at 14:20:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
We're just fine!
How are things over there in Florida? You guys got a lot more problems than we had over here I guess..

DD    Posted 10-10-2004 at 15:18:13       [Reply]  [No Email]
Maybe so but we're working on our 2nd weekend WITHOUT a hurricane so I'm not complaining : )

Gerrit    Posted 10-10-2004 at 15:41:55       [Reply]  [No Email]
That's good news! Let's hope the season will end without any more hurricanes.

Ron/PA    Posted 10-10-2004 at 13:28:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well, you must have E.S.P. We were just sitting here talking, and Donna asked if I'd heard from you for a while? I told her no, and she thought we ought to check on you. I was looking for your number when you popped on here.
Best to Patria and family. Glad you're doing ok.

Hey Ron,

Well, we're doing just great. Life has been back to normal for a couple of weeks now with the exeption of the phone not working. Suddenly today the phone rang and at first we didn't believe it :-) My sister called from Holland to check on us. So during that talk I went to the computer room and started the comps and was really happy to see that the internet line also worked!

Say Hi to Donna!

Regards, Gerrit

Hiya buddy! Been wondering about you guys. I figured something like this with the cleanup operation I'm sure is still going on. Glad to see you're back.

Gerrit    Posted 10-10-2004 at 14:14:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
Hi 2u2!

Actually we don't have a clue why the phone wasn't working.. The lines seemed O.K.

Anyway, we're connected again and happy to have our internet back on.

Take care, Gerrit

Clod    Posted 10-10-2004 at 13:38:45       [Reply]  [No Email]
Oh,That was it? I thought you two were just being quite.

Gerrit    Posted 10-10-2004 at 14:14:57       [Reply]  [No Email]
Nah, we won't walk out just like that...:-)
