Squeaky Wheels

Tracey: When you can't run, you crawl, and when you can't crawl - when you can't do that... 

Zoë: You find someone to carry you.

I've mentioned before that blogger Squeaky is having a rough time with medical procedures and bills and so forth. It seems that life, as it will, has thrown her yet another curve.

The bratty little sister of the gun-o-sphere has some worthy stretch goals that have turned out to be not so much of a stretch (for us anyway, maybe not so much for her*). One thing about this crowd, when one of our own is down we're pretty good about gathering together to lift them up.

Another grand to the next stretch goal. That's 40 people donating $25 each (actually that's 39 more people donating $25 each). Squeaky needs a little lifting up. The lifting-up details are here, go do what you can.

*One of the things is to have her picture taken for publication. To hear her tell the tale even introverts consider her to be shy and withdrawn (once upon a time certain cultures believed that one's soul lived in pictures, and to have a picture taken was to expose your soul to mortal danger), so for her to do something like this is a Big F'n Deal.

Thank you so much for doing this. I appreciate it, and I'm certain Squeaky does as well.

The effort is small and the cause is great. I'm glad to be a part of it.

Thanks for dropping by Erin.
