Hello All, I mailed out the patches on Monday the 14th. All who is getting one should be there in a week or two. I had the most fun doing this. I
really can't say how much. Just let me know when you all get them, and how there used. Thanks for the kind words, thanks for the enthusiasm to help
others less fortunate out a bit. I think we all may have something here. We just need to keep it going.
I need to tell you all what I do each month. I am on my second marriage. I raised my two kids all by my lonesome for about 17 years. I remarried in 05
to the most wonderful woman in the world, introduced to her by my son and now step-son. Together we have 5 adult children. Between my ex-wife & her
ex-husband we are owed about two hundred thousand dollars in back child support.
My wife gets zero from her ex, I am the lucky one. I get a whoppin $50 a month. Yea that was the courts idea, it was dropped from $500 a month to $
50. So at first I just spent that little $50 each month, bullets, gas, lotto tickets, anything really. Then one day I was in the local dollar store,
you know the ones where everythings a dollar. And there wasa woman who did'nt have the money for her stuff, mostly food and toiletries. There was a
couple kids with her, she was embarassed and ashamed, I could see it in her eyes. It broke my damn heart. I thought " here I am in here buying damn
junk as so to just spend off that $50 I get each month. And this women, irregardless of her situation is struggling in the damn dollar store for
crying out loud.
I paid for every thing she had, and gave her the remaining of the $50 probally about $24 or so dollars. She and I and the cashier were at the point
of tears by the time all this was done. I was asked why? I did that. I told them there was a time in my life as to where I really needed that $50
dollars, back when the kids were little and the support did not come.
But that was not the situation for me now. She needed it more than I. Her little children needed it more than I needed candles for the prep closet.
I now and have been for about the past two years, each time that littlle $50 dollars gets loaded on that little card. I make a trip to the dollar
store an do a little watching. You can spot the folks who need the help. It;s not hard. I normally pick out those with children. I do the same as
that first one. I'll pay for their stuff and if there's any change, they get.it.
My way of helping out. Dollar store folks know when I;m coming. I don't know how long I'll do this, I guess as long as the ex send's that "$50
each month I'lll be doing the $$$$$ store thing. Hope all you folks have a great time and experience with those patches. A physical connectionn thru
cyberspace to spread the word" Just help out those who are a little less fortunate than yourself. It don't take much. OYM1262
