…which stands to reason, since a lot of good shit seems to happen to thoroughly bad people as well, or Hillary and her cohorts would be busy selling pencils on street corners. And the rest of us could get a huge kick out of consistently refusing to buy any, but I digress…

The thing is, whereas I can live with good stuff happening to bad people even when they don’t deserve it, it breaks my heart when bad stuff happens to good people, because they most certainly don’t deserve it. It’s even worse when the good people in question happen to be my very closest and dearest friends, as is the case here.

Our very own LC Jackboot and his lovely wife are, as you may or may not know, recovering from the financial hole in which one finds oneself when bad shit happens to you outside of your control and you end up shooting off whatever meagre savings you might have in order to stave off the inevitable or, hopefully, hold your nose above water until better times return. And then sometimes, just as better times are about to return and you can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel, even more crap hits the fan. Every time you patch up one hole, two more holes appear and it just won’t. stop. happening. Your car breaks down, the kids get sick, the roof leaks, the pipes burst etc. etc. etc.

Jackboot and Mrs. have been going through a period like that and, since he’s who he is, he’s been keeping mum about it. Not one to whine and moan or even ask for a hand when the ship is sinking. It’s a guy thing. So he’s never mentioned it with a word until I find out, through other channels, that he’s sitting in a house where half the power is out, his business connection to the Intertubes is cut off and G-d knows what else. But will he ask me or any of the Rotties for help just to get over the hump? Oh no. Which I respect. I know all about pride, even when it’s carried to its logical extreme and parts beyond.

However, I’m not him, so there’s not a damn thing he can do to stop me from asking. I know, I’m evil that way.

So what I’m asking, very humbly, is that if you happen to have a few coins laying around under the sofa cushions, it would be more than just a little bit appreciated if you could part with them and throw them in the PayPal tip jar on the left sidebar, right above the T-shirt in the section called “Support the Rott.” I’ll make sure that it gets to him immediately. I’ll do what I can myself, but I sure would appreciate anything you can part with too. Don’t sell your children’s kidneys or anything, however.

I’ll deal with him and his reaction once he finds out what I’ve been up to :-)

Thank you in advance. Not a handout, just a hand up, for somebody who’s a truly good man.

    Det gør mig ondt med din ven, min dreng - jeg forsøgte rent faktisk at gå ind på PayPal, men der stod at siden ikke var tilgængelig og noget med at ændre webbrovseren - og så stod jeg af, men tanken var der - hvis det kan hjælpe noget som helst. Undskyld jeg skriver på dansk - men jeg gad ikke på andet sprog, og det var jo egentlig også kun ment for dine ører.

    Nobody did, myself included. I may finally have found somebody more proud than I am, and G-d knows I’ve been told enough times that it’s going to be the end of me.

    Hmmm… I didn’t know that had disappeared. I’ve tried to fix it, but let me know if it didn’t work.

    At any rate, any donations received will be assumed to be for Jackboot.

    Done. BTW MIsha, your paypal email address is still the old one I think.

    They’re both active (the mish and the misha ones). I created the mish one because the “old” misha addy was getting swamped with spam, but before I could deactivate it the new and improved spam filter took care of it, so I left it alive, which means that I now have two current and functional ones. Yes, I’m a pack rat, even when it comes to email addies ;-) ).

    Sometimes I think bad things happen to good people so other good people can have the chance to show how much they care for their friends. “All things work together for good to them who love God” as the Bible says. Don’t worry, Jackboot-you’ve got lots of friends here at the Rott!

    Sometimes I think bad things happen to good people so other good people can have the chance to show how much they care for their friends.

    That’s what I said to our brother Jackboot too, and you’re absolutely right. Shit happens, and if anything good comes of it, it’s that you get to know who your friends are and just how many people really DO care, even if all that they can give (we all know about being down on funds, don’t we?) is best wishes and prayers, which work magnificently TOO, I can tell you from personal experience.

    Been there, done that, got the ragged T-shirt. I had no effin’ clue just how many people really cared until I finally overcame my pride and reached out, ignorant bastard that I was.

    Then I got truly blown away, and it’s a lesson that has stayed with me ever since.

    “That’s what friends are for” is a saying that has come to sound trite with overuse, but in reality it is anything BUT. Nothing can replace friends, and each and every one should be cherished.

    JackBoot, you’ve been as true a friend as any old Marine could ask for (even if you are a squid :em93:). I gave what I could and I’ll gladly find more if ya need it. And you had damned well better ask. If you can raise money for one of your listeners to get her through a tight spot, you had better ask your friends for help if you need it, that’s what we’re for after all.

    God bless Brother.

    Unfortunately, my own situation worsened from the last time anyone here heard from me, but since I’m just a single guy, and the cab of a truck ain’t too bad (as long as my pain meds keep working, heh), I’ll try to send something next month.

    I’ll need an address to send a money order to too, sire. My handle AT operamail.com

    I won’t ‘wish’ things get better for Jackboot, I’ll just say once one’s at the bottom, things can only get better, and with friends like everyone here, that’s the best start.
