Happy 07-08-09 Day! -- MidWeek Blues --

FEMA did the blue for them.

What's the hold up with their insurance companies?



Hurricane Ike came last summer, nearly a year ago now. Still these people are having to live with temporary patches on their dwellings.



Almost immediately a FEMA rep showed up with the blue tarpaulins to keep the elements out of their homes.




Why even have insurance if we have to wait over a year for the repairs?

One thought; the widow lady in the small house may not have wind insurance as her home very likely is paid for. The other is only a few years old and most likely has a mortgage requiring insurance.


I'd be very blue too.

Another note, I've just had my 50,000th visitor here on my blog.
I don't know who it was but he/she looked at my French Millau Viaduct post of June, 2007. (Google link, fourth down)
I do know the visitor was from Huizen, Holland.
Thank you whoever you are!

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo below. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did. It is a NEW PROJECT which I hope will grow in acceptance.

Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE, you don't have to write.

Nice photography. Thank you for the reminder to hit "Publish."
 
The government is so very slow. They just don't seem to have their ducks lined up in a row.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
 
so sad mr. jim about those slower than molasses in january insurance pay outs, but it sure did make for you some nice photos just chuck full of blue.
blue is my favourite colour!
 
50,000 i don't keep track but i thibnkd mine might be over 200 million
 
50,000 is a good mileage Jim, not sure I will ever reach that. Insururance companies here are soon threatening you if you miss payments but its a different story when they get behind with their payments to us. Bob
 
Interesting, but perhaps all good things come for those who wait! That's a lot of visitors to your blog. Tha's because you are so darn nice!
 
I'd be blue too if I had a tarp on my home for over a year. Of course, I'd rather have a tarp on my home than have the rain and hail and wind coming inside.

Whenever I have midweek blues, I have a chocolate truffle. It doesn't take away problems, but it sure gives a temporary uplift.

:-)
 
Jim, some of those people got insurance money and did NOT spend it on repairs..... I know a few people who did that...Silly, I know.

Congratulations on your 50,000 visitor.

I've noticed that you play a few other memes in the blogosphere. I really enjoy your answers! I'd like to invite you to play The Queen's Meme every Tuesday with Mimi Queen of Memes.
The fun begins next week on July 14, 2009. I will send another reminder to everyone on Monday.

I figured all of our problems were over with FEMA after the election.
 
Dear Jim,
I like the way you combine photo with an engagement.
My dad always would encourage me to read the small print on the insurance forms.
He actually used the many problems in the US as an example of how bad things may go.
I was very good at this before I married.
Now..the hubby had most of the control and expenses.
He's clever too though.
You know those who have little loose more when they loose everything.
Good pictures. Good reminder.
From Felisol
 
Felisol, people "who have little loose more when they loose everything" was the reason I am such a good gambler. I couldn't afford to lose at all.
Of course I don't gamble even a little bit, not even lottery tickets anymore.
