Southern Belle made it to the destination. Handsome Hombre is still on the road. Obviously, they took two vehicles.
***Update: Got a call at 10:26 PM. The Eagle has landed. Handsome Hombre is in the nest.***

Their credit card is tapped out. HH was to be paid on Friday but obviously he won't be in Miami to collect the check.
Southern Belle asked us to float them a loan via Western Union or MoneyGram. MoneyGram whacks you with a 10% fee which is pretty darned stiff. I don't know about Western Union. Given the amount of volume those two services are likely to experience I think it would be a good stroke of business to get competitive for funds being sent to areas impacted by the recent hurricanes.
Any advice from my readers will be much appreciated. What is the smoothest, most secure way to send money to somebody several states away?
An Executive Order temporarily softening some of the provisions of the "Patriot Act" that prohibit the transfer of funds to bank accounts would be welcome. We have a branch of the bank where Southern Belle does business up here but we cannot legally make deposits into her account when neither of us have our name on the account. That sucks.
SB wants enough money to gas up the vehicles and get some groceries. I think she plans to look for a job tomorrow. Those two are working fools.
