    In 55 years I've never asked anything from anyone, pride is a motherfucker but time to set it aside.

    Being on a fixed income is a drag, so I started my shop to help offset bills and keep the lights on. That it's done for the most part, but the scales were tipped with my last bought of cancer. Been paying off the beasts incurred fees since 2007/and the 2013 run with a monthly installments , but the latest 2017 battle tacked yet another bill to the stack.

    Behind the scenes I've been selling off my knife collection to help subsidize the expenses over the last couple of years and down to just a couple remaining that will be sold too, only could last so long I guess.

    Then life tossed another curve at "us", about 2 months ago I was involved in an auto accident and literally run off the road trying to avoid, our old rice burner took a pretty nasty hit that besides the physical damage somehow took out the AC, and the insurance company called it a total loss as the damage to repair ran more then the value of the car.

    Short and to the point, I'm fine driving the wrinkled sweat box, but my wife deserves more .

    With me trying to make all ends meet and her limited income she took it upon herself to start a Go-Fund me page a month ago, as she is quite aware I'm doing the best I can to "get by" fighting the beast, keeping the home-front powered up and food on the table.


    So Devils , while I'm embarrassed to even be reaching or I would have posted this at the get go, I am now , not for me directly but for the wife, and family as a whole .

    Please take a moment to have a read, and if you can find it within I would thank you sincearly to concider a small donation, it could make a big difference.

    To add, yes I've got a Jeep as some of you may remember, that's not been started up in in about 4 years sitting in my carport it's also being sold local to add to the fund .

    Hey all, first off sorry for not logging in sooner to thank everyone who has made a donation things been hectic in the household . Remarkable response Beth tabulated about 800 bucks from the JD folks since my posting, you guys/gals rock !

    A thank you doesn't seem quite enough to do.

    Once things settle down around here I'm going to just together some sort of JD Give Away, some items I've got around perhaps a build from my shop would be fitting , I'll find a way to give back for everyone's generosity . Quite humbling so many of you were so kind to the wife, and family.

    Much love to all.

    Want to take a moment to thank all for the help with donations to the wife's Go-Fund-Me page. With the Fund, help from family and friends and scrimping and saving over the summer, IE hard work in shop, Monday I took the wife shopping to take advantage of Labor Day sales.

    We got a GREAT deal on a brand new 2017 Kia Soul ! While we never expected to be in a postion to afford such a thing, between all efforts we walked away with a small monthly payment we as a family could afford, including a full 10 year bumper to bumper plan that will cover anything that happens to fail over the years as we plan for this to be with us a very long time.

    Thanks again to all, attached are a couple of images.

    The wife will be sporting, I'll still drive the beat up rice burner till we can make some sort of other "move" in our life.
