Hurricane Emily

It's only July 12, 2005 and already we have faced one full blown hurricane, Dennis. Luckily for us in Jamaica Dennis dallied around the island instead of hitting us directly. Still some parts of the island nearly 'wash weh'.
One person lost his life and many families are still in shelters as their homes are under water. From Portland to St. Anns got a lot of rain. Many roads in those parishes are still impassable and some bridges are out.
Once again the crops that were just beginning to come in after Hurricane Ivan last year were hard hit. 'Man, a lang fi a banana'.
And just when you think you can sigh a sigh of relief, 'braps', here comes another one. Hurricane Emily is making her way 'right back a' Dennis, following in his footsteps. ''Is a good thing me neva put up anything yet'. Them seh dat is only the man hurricane them have teeth, mi hope them right.
Still we are giving much thanks. Look at Haiti, Cuba and even parts of the great USA. Jamaica well blessed 'fi true.'
Well it's back on we knees, 'for wi did tink sey it did done, but it jus a com'.
Nuff love

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
