    It gets cold in a house with no power or water. My friend
    said no when I asked for a loan. I worked through it. The VA check came ,but I know how to survive now. thanks
    for writing!

      that is why you sleep under a lot of quilts with a blanket over your head and go to bed early.  You also have to break the ice in the wash bowl beside your bed every morning.

      Carrying the water from a pitcher pump to indoors is also a headache.

      Been there and done that

        If I answered, I am sorry. Agent orange and Parkinson "s
          screws with you. I thought only I did those things.
        thanks for writing and be well!

          2,4-D, 2,4-T and their cousins do work on you even decades later.  Irony is that in 1980s, VA was claiming you could take a bath in the stuff safely
