31856674_153332888918893_r.jpegRuss is a local Fort Worth musician who has been living in his car for the past few years.  He plays keyboards most nights on Magnolia for tips, but that isn't enough for him to pay for a place. As Russ gets older it's harder for him to continue to maintain his heath and the health of his pets. One of Russ's pets died earlier this year and that was heartbreaking for him and many of his friends. With just a little money we could get Russ into a small apartment in Fort Worth and ensure he spends the winter indoors.

Looks like my days as a sidewalk performer and dog lover on Magnolia are numbered. The police only hear complaints. They never get a call to come out and celebrate a sidewalk moment or commune with a remarkable chocolatey brown eyed border collie. The tyranny of the minority elite is alive and well in Fairmount. You in the silent majority, raise your voices, be heard. Don't allow the greed mongers to ram rod public policy. Be bold. If you dare. This must not stand. The line is here, no further.
Never got a ticket before for singing
Never interacted with J Campbell
Never thought it would go this far.

So, the go fund me campaign is flagging and has stalled just shy of $1000, toward our goal of $5000. It's been several days since the last donation was made. I imagine those who have pitched in so far might be interested to hear how things are going so i hope an update would serve to inform and remind. It seems that it's word of mouth that puts the crowd in crowdfunding.

As luck would have it, just before Joe Savage told me about the GoFundMe campaign, my Jeep had broken down and it is still down so I haven't had transportation for a month. Of course the Jeep is old and it would take a lot money just to get it legal besides what it may take to get it running, so I have been looking around to see if I could get some thing else and retire the Jeep.

A friend has stepped up and offered to let me park on his property until I can get something worked out. It happens he also has a Ford Van that he wants to sell. It has a bed in the back and would suit well for what Olympia and I need. He is only asking $1500.

I can probably get around $500 salvage for the Jeep running or not. So only a little more coming from the campaign will put us over the top and get us a much bigger more comfortable vehicle that. gets better gas mileage and above all is legal!

So pass the word .

blessings
gratitude
peace.
