2249 Six months after Katrina

St. Casserole's neighborhood is slowly, slowly returning to normal and she has some happy things to report. It had been awhile since I visited, and was pleased to find:

"Our Pass Christian High School kids got prom dresses, accessories and tuxes from a high school in Connecticut.

The Humane Society of South Mississippi moved out of the Katrina damaged building into a great new facility. Grants, donations and labor from around the country came pouring in to help.

Our neighborhood Chinese restaurant re-opened and looks better than it did before the storm."

Her sense of humor is also in good shape. On Ash Wednesday she noted:

"Remember that March is Wear More Jewelry month so load it on. Keep your pedicures current and buy a new pair of shoes. Oh rats! It's Lent. Forget all that and get your purple on."
