Monday, January 2, 2017


Welp, 2017 is starting off true to what I expect, come noon on January 20th, will be its actual and demonic form. Setbacks today, including one major and very expensive one.

Fortunately, we're able to deal with it. But it's $4,500 I was planning to put toward the septic system, so I'm not especially happy at this moment. Today's events are also likely to necessitate a personnel shake-up, and not in a good way. Like I said, I'm not happy right now. With a lot of things. We are incredibly supportive people — to a fault, actually. But there comes a time when even we have to face the fact that we need to cut our losses and move on.

So obviously we're going to need shares a bit more urgently than I thought. We're okay for now, but that's s big chunk I'm going to have to make up somehow on the back end. Before I get to that, though, I want folks to go over to Lin and Laura's page and hit the share widgets there, and please kick in some scratch if you can. This is the best way to honor Lin's final wishes, and Laura's going to need a lot of support, financial and otherwise.

Now, the link-sharing for us:
  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown just above.
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales also fund the construction (indeed, they are the baseline for it). Testimonials help.
  • I've added Lowes gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. For folks who'd rather give gift cards than cash, this is far and away the best way to support construction. We're going to have to sink a small fortune into them for fixtures, appliances, flooring, etc., and at the moment, we can actually use the gift cards better than cash.
Thank you to everyone who has gotten us this far in the year just past; for the new year, we have a long way to go, but very soon (as in tomorrow), you'll start seeing new photos of major progress. The windows are being delivered tomorrow; there'll be a lot more work getting done (and undone and redone) at the end of the week and into next week.

Now, once again, I want to direct your attention here (or, for folks at the GOS, here). Lin's spirit is on its journey to where the water meets the light, but Laura will still need our help for a while. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can. Especially that last. It's needed.

Thanks, everyone.
