My beautiful Galveston was shattered last weekend by Hurricane Ike. I had prayed it would veer off, but no it went in with full force and did millions maybe billions in damage. I have called friends that evacuated and they're OK. Galveston will return, but it will be a while. Houston will also need much repair.
I have worked in and out of Galveston for many years now, I hope Sharon and Paul at the bookstore are OK, as well as my friends at Galveston Limo. I look forward to seeing the gang at Leo's Cajun Corner and hope their new dining room was spared. I will be back soon for some boudin. Good luck friends in Texas, God bless you!
