Signs of New Orleans

Signs seen around town by our soldiers. My personal favorite is the fellow warning people that he has a dog, etc., and later you see the fate of this hound...

I wonder if the "ugly woman" left because of the big dog's fate.

I just found your site through Instapundit. I live in Hammond LA north of the lake but was born and bred in New Orleans. Please send all of your compatriots our sincere thanks for all you are doing to help our state and its people. The first days I got out I wept everytime I saw military or volunteers helping. (After 10 days living with no AC you get a little goofy. LOL! I am sure you can understand.) In the early days after the storm there was this extreme feeling of isolation from the world. Communication was impossible. We were on our own. I live very close to the airport in Hammond and when we started hearing the many choppers take off and land and seeing the convoys of trunks, we knew the cavalry had arrived and things would start to get better. I try and thank the soldiers when I see them and they always looked shocked. I don't know if they think I am crazy or they don't expect it, but I just want them to know what it means to me that they are here when we need them. Thank you all!

I live in Washington Parish and am extremely grateful to all of you folks, also. Washington Parish was rendered inoperable by Katrina - there were trees down everywhere, roads were impassable, no running water, power out, etc.

It was GREAT to see olive drab all over town, keeping us safe, handing out supplies to us, etc.

Thanks for all of the help. I'm originally from New Orleans, but up here in Richmond Virginia. I'm a reservist with Navy Cargo Handling Battalion 10. Seven of our Air Cargo sailors are down in Belle Chasse. Give them a hail from all of us up here, please. And please get a picture of them. Thanks.
