Who would have guessed that the worst day of your life...was just a new beginning!!


Most people outside of Kansas have long forgotten the events of May 4th,2007 when a tornado visited Greensburg, KS and destroyed around 90% of the town....long forgotten and distance memories now.......Over 960 homes out of the 1,700 are gone, of the 140 businesses 24 are no more. Twelve people lost their lives that afternoon as sounds of a train came roaring thru Greensburg all in a matter of minutes. But what if the worst day of your life was just a new beginning?

Just like in New Orleans, some of the side effect of these kinds of disasters involve our four legged friends and companions........

It's always interesting as to how someone or something can survive this, but their she was....hungry and scared.

Oh and not just one, but animals were found roaming around a city that was no more.

But just like in New Orleans it wasn't long before you had a new friend to talk to....to listen to their story....and to take a nap with.....

And to share your lunch with, now if we could just get a bath!!

Did I mention that we allowed those other folks to join us.....and like when we were kids and had that "secret club" that didn't allow girls......well things change don't they?

So here we are, all 5 of us just sleeping in a car but you know......The things we learn from our animal friends...

If only all of mankind could learn such valuable lessons as this. Lessons of instant friendship. Of peace and harmony by way of respect for one another -- no matter one's color or creed. These animals tell you... "It's just good to be alive and with others." Yes, it surely is. So... Live, love, laugh.
"Life's a Gift... Unwrap It!"
