I will be going on vacation May 29th through June 5th to Portland. As you may know from a previous post, my Mom has cancer and has a poor prognosis. The vacation was originally for me to go to the West Coast Haunters Convention, and it still is, but we have turned it also into a Mother/Daughter vacation. My Mom took care of my Da when he had cancer and eventually passed this last August, and she needs some time off just as much as I do.
Now to the Panhandling… I am not desperate for money and very thankful that I can keep my own head above water. I had the idea of setting up a Fundraiser, otherwise known as a ‘give me money for no other reason than you have it to spare‘ raiser. I want to be able to pay for dinner and other misc. things when we go down to Portland and not struggle when I come home.
Yes, I am throwing my pride and ID to the wind and shamelessly asking for monetary assistance. Will I cry if I don’t get any…no. Will I go to the nearest Pet Store in Portland to buy Wicket goodies if there is some money donated…you friggen betcha!!
If you donate, with stipulations that I use the money for Wicket, dinner, whatever, I promise that I will do just that and take photo’s of what I buy. Keep in mind, I do not drink so if you say I must go out and party with it, my style of partying may be different than your style of partying.
Here is Wicket’s Cardboard sign. I tried to get him to say something about Vacation money but he refused. He stated something about snow and cold and he is fed up with not being able to play outside, at least I think that is what he was saying, he did have a toy in his mouth at the time.
You may not hear from me for a long period. I have a few life emergencies going on that have thrown me for a loop. My Da is succumbing to cancer and my recent adoption of Wicket had to be reversed due to him having a back injury that I can’t manage while taking care of my family.
My Da isn’t doing well and any and all prayers are invited. If prayers aren’t your thing, send good energy, light some candles, dance naked under the pale moon light…whatever it takes to have my Da not be in pain. I am a realist and don’t expect a miracle but would be delightful thrilled if Da got better and Wicket could come back to me.
Anyone that is friends with me on Facebook knows that I’m devastated by having to give Wicket back to his rescuer. I’ve decided to setup a Fundraiser account to help pay for his medical bills that I have obtained and depending on the amount raised I will donate to his rescuer for any bills that are still in the works. It’s the only thing I can do right now to still feel like I’m part of Wicket’s life.
