The annual halloween party
Posted by: Ann Wilson

Hi!

The house was a Hurricane shelter. No electricity, only flashlights and candles. Blues, jazz and ragtime music playing mixed in with the sounds of Hurricane Andrew. Peel and eat shrimp, beer and simple food. The best part was an acoustic jam circle with everyone packed in, singing and playing for hours. Dustin got on keyboards for awhile...talk about one happy kid! Tracy Pucci did her famous Cher imitation, everyone got a chance to sing something. Nancy and I have two nephews, Tohn and Reed who have a band called 'The Lushtones' who were there for the jam too. It really was an amazing time. People left contributions to hurricane disaster relief in a great big jar that one of the guests is going to deliver into the right hands. Another one of the guests ,has just returned from Louisiana where he was volunteering with the Humane society feeding and walking abandoned animals. There was no shortage of FEMA comments, but it was mostly a night for people to get together and send a shot of positive energy to those who have been through and who are still going through these hard times.

The costumes were amazing as always...people came as anything and everything out of the storm. Oprah was there as was Dr. Phil. Lots and lots of folks from FEMA (funny how they could make it to a party), doctors, construction workers, a windswept voodoo priest, a tattered nun covered in moss and on and on. On a more macabre note, two, people came as the death angel. A strange night to be sure. We send all our love to those in crisis and those who are moving on from it. We raised a glass to them and to the world that keeps on turning.
