Adventures of Old Nebraska Dave 

The end of September and beginning of October was a busy time.  The garden kicked in and was producing an abundance even though it was neglected big time.

Harvey came with devastating destruction. It's been a few years since I've gone on a crew to hurricane-damaged areas of the country. I couldn't pass up a chance to go to the Houston area with a chainsaw crew. This group is from the Southern Baptist Convention. On any given day, there was 80 to 90 men and women from all across the country. Crews were sent out each morning with work orders to complete. The orders might include covering a roof with a tarp, or cleaning out moldy, wet drywall, or cutting up fallen trees. There is still so much to clean up and repair even after a month has passed. As with any hurricane, the mosquito population booms and clouds of them roam the land looking for anything to provide their dinner. Fortunately, I'm not one that they seem to like much, but some on the team had to not go out because of being bitten all over their bodies. Mosquito repellent didn't seem to work too well.

It's always good to get together with like-minded folks and help those in need.
