I came back to the Southeast forums to say hi to the super totally awesome catherders that saved my ass last August (thanks again guys), reread my thread, and the Rella thread, and came across this.

Sad news. If there's anything that I can do from down here in Failada, please lemme know. I've never met her, or eaten at her restaurant which I've heard serves food of legend....but from what I have read, she's a true ADV'er, and I will do anything I can (be it sending five bucks in an envelope, to mailing a crate of fresh Florida oranges.... yeah I guess I'm kinda limited down here, unless you all have ideas) to lend a hand.

I stopped at Rella's Thursday for lunch. She is doing fine, considering all that has happened in her life the past few months. She is currently living with her daughter, Jeaneace, but is anxious to get back on her own. The church and local community have done a great job helping her out since the fire.

Interesting note: Rella told me that in the midst of all the burned furniture and other things, her Bible remained on the stand untouched and ready to give words of comfort.

Her plan is to buy a small 2BR trailer (being sold from a local family - very clean and like new, she said) and move it to her property behind the diner. She is waiting on the insurance settlement check.

When she does get the new trailer in place, I'd like to encourage following up on the earlier suggestion that we have a weekend get-together and help set up things - underskirting, landscaping, hook-ups, etc. Stay tuned for announcements.

Here are some photos (and hopefully 2 videos) of her home:















What's that in the far right corner? (See next photo)



Perry Como made it through the fire!

Ditto that.

Mike, thanks for stopping by for sharing the pictures. I'll be calling her from time to time just to see where things are so we can set a date to try and get everyone together.

I'll have to wait until I get home to see the videos. Net Nannies block Youtube here.

Howdy, HBN! Long time, no see.

How did you imbed the videos? I tried for half an hour, then just pasted the links. Thanks.

Highlight the entire code, then click on the break-link icon above the text area.

???? Can't find this. Is it the "Remove Link" icon? I tried several ways with no luck. Geez, I feel stupid!

Thanks, guys - I think I figured it out. I was doing it right, but I could not see the imbedded image until I saved the edit and went back out to normal view. In the edit mode, I just saw the HTML text that I copied to imbed the video. Our net nanny blocks some of the stuff at work, which doesn't help.

Sorry for the hijack. Back to regular programming.

No hijack as far as I'm concerned.

Curious to know if she had any insight on what they may have found that caused this. Jeaneace told me it was electrical but didn't have any other info at the time.

No clues as to the cause. Fire Mashall wasn't sure either. He thought it may have started at an outlet on the wall behind the LR (?), but Rella said there was no plug there. Hmm.

That's terrible, Steve @ Morton's BMW just sent me the link. When you set a date for the work party count me in.
