Free Van For The Wheelchair, Skating Show Madness

Have a guy giving us a 1987 Chevy van fully wheelchair accessible, nice to know nice people. I met this guy a few times, he came to the Sheriff's office after I retired. My grandmother used to say never kick a horse turd, you may be related to it, and yes, she was a female Will Rogers! Anyway, I'm not related to this guy, but he remembers me from when I was a little boy, his wife grew up in a house that was down a long dirt road and sat right behind my grandmother's and my house. Nice to get a freebie while you're figuring out what works, just hope he doesn't tell too many stories about what a crybaby I was!

Big weekend at the Brawn household, and yes, that's my last name, a 6'5", 275 lb man that used to be a powerhouse named Brawn. The wife and daughter have the final day of the skating show they are involved with, the daughter is the teacher, the wife is her assistant. Interesting dynamic, the wife was the teacher for 25 years, she's having an issue playing second fiddle and it's hysterical to watch! She tells the daughter what SHE would do then the daughter does what she wants. 180 kids in the program, 4 shows, watching the wife get a smack down from the daughter, priceless!

This has nothing to do with the van, Tara Greer has you listed on her blog. She has vanished. He Facebook, is dead, the phone number I had is no good, it foes busy. We have been blogger friend for several years. I have had MS 24 tears and we were close, I thought. I fear something is wrong, Have you heard anything or have an alternative way to contact her, Thanks, Mitch Thurmer mthurmer271@comcast.net

Mitch, unfortunately I don't have any other way of contacting her. I only knew her through her blog. Hopefully she got tired of blogging and moved onto something else, good luck,
