    Leaving the back porch on is a GOOD idea - thieves are less likely to go into well-lit areas when others can see them.

    I'm just worried that they would come onto the porch since it's only half inclosed and peek in the back door. Since the shades are torn and askew thanks to the kitties, they could look inside the house. I don't want them to decide they want to come in, or steal my snow shovel off the porch for that matter.

    liz I don't think anyone would be upset about trying to save the bus, but since the letter mentioned I have no other way of getting around, they probably know I am alone. Easy to get the addy out of the phone book now that they have my name. The paper printed that. This time of year specially weirdos go after vernable people.

    There are things happening on the bus situation. I'm not sure what yet. I went to the bank this morning and the driver and I talked. He thanked me for my letter to the editor. Later he told me he feels really good about the situation now. Several things are happening. He didn't go into details and I didn't ask. Did not want to jinx it you know. But if he, who would lose his job, is feeling better, I sure do too. Keep those prayers coming please?

    Continuing prayers from us.

    Just a bump to request more prayers for a friend.

    I am putting this question out for all of you - it is just an idea.

    Could we raise $9,000.00 by appealing to local retailers or all of the places that they take the seniors to shop. For example, the dry cleaners, the drug store, the grocery store, the shoe repair man, the pet shop etc. I know that the people who use the service have to pay for it - but could they contribute to
    an account we could set up - say $1.00 each. Would pet talkers put in $1.00 each.

    It just seems as though 9,000.00 isn't that much money and we could do it.

    What are your thoughts? Are we asking for trouble? (for example, next year they want us to raise $10,000.)

    I am just putting this out there for your thoughts.

    xxoo, Connie - do you know how to ride a motorcycle? (just kidding).

    I won't kid about offering more prayers for you though.

    Heck, I could put in $5. I bet the bus driver has friends and family that would chip in.

    Connie, maybe a Facebook page could be set up for this?

    I'm in!

    Hi, everyone! Thanks for the offers of donations. It might come to that but I won't know until after the city manager has a meeting with the bus people sometime this month.

    When I talked to him, he offered to go to some of the businesses in town and ask if they could chip in once he knew the amount we need. Until they have that meeting, everything is on hold. I had suggested a fund raiser or something on that order. They are also to have meetings with us who use and need the service. Hopefully it will be a time the bus is running so I can get there.
    I'll let you know more when I know more.

    This should only be a one time thing. I have been told that next year the bus operation will be taken over by SeCap which operates most of the bus services in our area. They couldn't take us this year because they had already arranged to take on a bus service from another town. Their charter only allows them to take on one new one a year.

    Meantime, keep the prayers coming.

    Gini, I am too short to get my leg over a motor cycyle plus the old arthritis says no!!! I have concidered a scooter though with a little trailer to pull behind for cat supplies.

    Or maybe a horse and buggy!!! People let their dogs run free and poop in my yard. A horse wouldn't add much more to that from some of the, um, gifts left by some of those dogs.
