Yer Most Welcome, Doit. I never thought I'd find such material more interesting than the exploits of the Forrester Family on my faborite story, Bold and da'Boob'a'full. But there it is as you hang them out in living color: today is green but what will tomorrow bring?

Doubtless hurricanes have a way of making that stuff moot, eh? Hence, Editilla walks amongst'yaz fo'da Anniversary. I am her'ah in'da City That Care Forgot so let'x hope Gustav does too. But damn, just because I came to town doesn't mean all of y'all have to skiddoo like this...damn... You'd t'ink ol'Editilla had busted a pipe or some'ting.
