Our next assignment: To help a woman clean up her lot. This entailed moving a whole LOT of bricks! But we were able to find a number of really special items she was missing. It didn't feel like much, but she was really very appreciative. We didn't finish this one that day, but it was scheduled to rain the next day.
This is what her house looked like - she had not done any cleanup. This is all Katrina's doing! Nothing was left, but the foundation.

She did have a really beautiful view of the ocean!

Here's our gang eating lunch.

This is the apartment building 3 doors over. Note the 1st two floors were removed, courtesy of Katrina. The view is from behind the building looking towards the ocean.
Our next assignment: To remove damaged ceiling and wet insulation.
The problem: the roof wasn't fixed and it was supposed to rain the next day. We told him the church could come back after the roof was fixed, but that needed to happen first.
Of course, I fell in love with his very cute puppy!
After the "no tree", we drove around to see some of Ocean Springs

The Tree

This was our first "assignment". All we knew initially was a woman needed a tree removed from her yard. This pine tree was over 60 feet tall and had broken in half, but was still attached. Someone else had already trimmed the first 5-6 feet off the ground and we stood there pondering what to do next!

Pictures are on their way!

Please be patient - I'll have the pics up soon.


This is a shameless ad for MyPoints... my favorite way to earn Points is by clicking on a link in emails they send me. I usually get 2-3 a day, sometimes more, sometimes less. What do I do with my Points? Well, I've gotten Home Depot gift cards, Webcertificates, and more. Webcertificates are great - you just spend the $ anyway you like!

If you want to sign up, please email me or post here and I'll send you a "refer a friend" email. That way we both earn points!
