Veston R. Sadler in Ponchatoula, LA
I'm getting a fair amount of traffic these days, what with Technorati searches on Katrina, looting, levees and New Orleans and Louisiana, and now that I've seeded this post with those same keywords, I'm going to take advantage of it just a little to check on another former coworker. Ravon worked with me about 13, 14 years ago. He was probably the nicest guy I've ever met. All the women at the Ecology Center used to tell me they just loved to listen to him talk. He left Oakland and went home to Louisiana to take care of his grandmother.
Ponchatoula was slightly of out of the line of fire, but still. Ravon, if you're out there, or if anyone out there is in touch with Ravon, drop Becky and me a line - I'm in the phone book in Pinole, CA - or leave a note here. You've got some of your old pals thinking of you out here in California.
I hope everyone else in Ponchatoula is OK too. I imagine there won't be many strawberries on those farms this year.
I need to stop reading news for a few hours.

Just FYI to you and your readers, I read on another blog a nifty tip: if you're having trouble getting in touch with family and loved ones in the area, and landlines/cell phones aren't cutting it, be sure to try text messaging as well. Apparently, that worked for him when he tried to get a hold of his friend on the LA coast...It's not much, and may not be applicable with regards to your friend Ravon, but I just thought I'd throw it out there.Posted by: teh l4m3 at September 3, 2005 09:31 AM
