For Clay Riley, The Snake Wrangler!!

So to start as hard headed and prideful as he is, I know he is going to be pissed about this but I can handle him.  Most folk dont know the true definition of family but mine does.  I was a adult when the Riley's took me in and now we are family.  Blood doesn't make family its the love and bond people hold for each other.  This family has taken me and mine in and love all of us as there own.  Now on to the issue at "hand." My little brother Clay, has been known to do some goofy things, sometimes a few unnamed people have been known to help him out.  Well this time it turned around and "bit" him!!  He was snake wrestling what was thought to be a bullsnake and turned out to be poisionous baby snake or potentially a wampus cat...jury is still out.  In all seriousness anyone that knows Clay, knows that he will give you the shirt off his back and is always willing and ready to help anyone out. If you dont know Clay just imagine how awesome I am and know he is only like half a notch of awesomeness behind me.  lol.  Back to seriousness, and this is the part where he will get pissy with me. His new job insurance hasn't started quite yet and little brother is sitting in the hospital drinking antivenom like I take jagerbombs.  Well turns out that'll rack up a hefty hospital tab.  Im gonna set this up for all of us that cant be there to help but want to do something for someone with such a huge heart.  For someone that will gripe about this because he is so headstrong he will never ask and I will have to force him to take anything that is raised but is also one of the most genuine men I know and would go out of his way to help anyone out there.  

Also he's a great father and husband with four of my nieces and nephew. They are great kids and while little brother has his feet up nursing his wounds the littles are staying with other members of our tight knit family. So we want to be able to ensure that while hospital bills rack up the littles and the home front financial battles wont get to out of hand either!!


Love you little brother and I know I make light of this when I prolly shouldn't.....but hell you know how I am and thats how we deal with it.  Yall feel free to contribute and help in any way you want.  Maybe if we get enough we can get us that airboat :)

Loving brother,

Not the Snake Charmer.
