RUMPOLE AND IRMA

Friends, colleagues, dear readers of our blog. There is nothing funny about the threat to our home town. 
Although we hold hope that this storm will not turn on a dime as predicted and head north, no matter how it goes we will get hit. 
Many of us will suffer. 
This is the time to think clearly. 
Be kind to neighbors and friends and strangers in need. 
Help each other and spread good karma and together we can overcome what none of us can individually. 

After the storm, we will be down for some time, pending internet and power. 
But we will be out in our community, a shovel or a saw in hand, helping those who need help. 

Think clearly. 
Act rationally. 
Don't panic. 
Be safe. 
You can always buy another TV, car, or house. 
Life is precious. 

We are thinking of you, friends. Be safe. 

Your humble blogger who has always known it was a privilege to have readers. 

See You In Court, sooner than you think. 

H. Rumpole, poor country lawyer.

Fortunately I worked for HARRY FLEMING 40 years ago when he developed the belt less trench coat.

It is perfect for this storm.

Is the MJB closed on Wednesday? The Daily Business Review says yes but the Miami Herald only reports the closure on Tuesday.

Lock up the looters and throw away the key. Geniuses going to prison for stealing shoes.
