Help Dave and Bleckley Progress

$200 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 8 people in 12 months
For those of you who don't know, my name is Dave Whitaker.   A Cochran native, but have lived for over 30 years at my current home.  My dad, David Whitaker helped start bleckleyprogress.com  almost 13  years ago because he believed in my talent.  I am talented but have certain issues that make getting regular work difficult.  In November of last year, my dad died unexpectedly of pancreatic cancer.   And the settling of the estate is going slowly.   

Even though it's been over a year, the estate isn't settled and I don't know when it will be.   I've already had to pay over $1,000 in expenses for home repairs even though the house isn't in my name.  That amount could be going up because of a second issue with the well pump in two months.  

With my limited income, and these extra expenses, the business checking account is getting stretched too thin.  I dislike having to ask for help.  But the reality is, I need the help.  Please share this info, help if you can.  Thank you.

Estate still not settled. Yet another step backwards. Frog wrecked the capacitor on the well. Plus, a leaky joint had to be replaced. I'm still trying to get the well pump paid off, and this happens.

Here's the thing. With the estate not settled, and me having limited personal income, the business account gets stretched for things like gas, car payments, & car insurance. When these unexpected expenses keep happening, it stretches the account too thin.

Not only does it affect my business, it causes more personal debt. Like using a credit card to buy gas when I'm covering something to protect the checking account.

Please share the information with everyone you know. That I'm trying, but things are difficult. And any help would be appreciated.

Yet another step backwards. $1,040 I'll have to pay to get well pump replaced. Air conditioning compressor last month was almost $1,200. And I have no idea of when the estate will be settled.

Two steps forward, two steps backward. Am going to have to shell out money to get the air conditioning fixed. With still no timetable on when things will actually be settled. Yeah.

Sorry it's been a while, but have actual news to share. Trying to recover from having to pay $500 deductible after a minor collision with a deer. I *thought* things were close to being settled with the estate, farm land being sold.

Right now, I don't think they are. I am trying to run my business, buy food, pay bills, live life, with limited income and credit cards. It's a hard battle as I continue to try & live alone. Anything you can do would be welcomed and appreciated.
