We're at another house tonight & they are allowing us the use of their computer so that I can tell you that we were in a fire today & we are at a very nice neighbor's & not at our house. Don't know what caused it yet just that we had had to go offline due to a thunder storm with lightning that had flickered the power off & on so I didn't get to post at Billie Bob's place this a.m. & Meli Mom & Mother had not slept the night before so they lay down as we did to nap & LillyCat is a siren & alarm onto herself & awakened us yowling her head off & Mom realized the power was off & smelled something strange & went downstairs & realized that smoke was all over the place but the smoke detectors were already on their second alarm by that time & this time they were not quitting were going off constantly so that they were going off when Meli Mom sent Pinto & Dion down the hall to get Mother & she was screaming all of our names & worrying about our semi feral Siamese friend down the hall but we had to get out & she did know that one of the boards had fallen from around the air conditioner window unit so that if he was desperate he could jump push & another piece would fall & he would be out but he didn't & Mom saw him in the window later. She ran outside with me in her arms, Mother on her arm, Pinto on his leash that she had grabbed, her purse that was by her & the phone which she had grabbed when she ran to call us & called from outside & when she ran to the side of the house she made Mother get off the porch because smoke was black against the downstairs driveside windows & beginning to bellow out & then flames shot out the cracks around the windows & she realized this was for real & not just smoke. We're all safe though she had to go get Dion who took off & LillyCat but they're safe & so is our semi feral friend and the entire house isn't destroyed just a basement area & all the clothes in storage there most of which were being sifted through to be given away & smoke & water damage in the basement & the side windows are gone & they said part of the ceiling upstairs somewhere so I guess right above that area of the basement & other damage.Some good neighbors asked us to come & stay with them & we really appreciate it & thank God that no one was hurt. Please remember us in your prayers.thanks.
