update on Sci and Mars

hey guys - just wanted to update all of my friends on the current situation with Sci and Mars. it turns out that they found a worthy (and cheap) beater....no i mean excellent vehicle that will be reliable for a while...and it was closer to them then having poor MDR and his wife have to drive up to Oklahoma from Texas.

i spoke to MDR on friday night and he gave me the news. i also got to speak to his wife who sounds so awesome that i could probably hug her until she was sooo squished. it was an honour that my friend would want me to speak to his wife. i don't care what he says - i think he is one of the most awesome men i have ever met! and i am filled with pride when i think that he calls me friend. jambaloney feels the same way. but jambaloney just wishes that MDR would slow down a little on his projects - teehee. because when i see MDR's latest project i yell - babe! come and see this! - and then jambaloney gets that look on his face. you all know what i mean!

i just heard back from Sci and she and Mars are very happy with their crap-ass - no i mean awesome - second hand vehicle. she is overwhelmed by the accident, the support, the prayers, the donations, the trying to find a vehicle, the fact that MDR offered his - she has to go into the Big Town tomorrow to register their new vehicle. i can only imagine how overwhelmed she and Mars are - i am overwhelmed and it didn't happen to me!

again - i thank all of my friends who jumped when i called. it fills my heart with joy to know that there are really good people out there in the world. i have always believed that, even though both jambaloney and i have been through experiences with people where we felt used and to be frank - abused. it is so nice to have a community here that you can really count on.

from the bottom of my heart - i thank you all for being here. i thank you all for your concern, your caring, your willingness to help people that you have never met.

my friend Rick said that he helped because he received help once and he believes in "paying it forward". i can't think of a better way to say it. you people have enriched my life and i don't know the proper way to say thank you for that.

so i will leave you with a quote from the movie 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape". Leonardo di Caprio plays Gilbert's (Johnny Depp's) brother, Arnie. at the end of the movie, Arnie says to Gilbert "say thank you, Gilbert. say thank you".

thank you.

  4. It never ceases to amaze me how the blogging community can come together to help someone, often times someone we have never met in real life...sometimes someone we've just heard about because someone posts a link to a blog about them (which is how I ended up here). It's good to know that there are still AWESOME GOOD people out there. It gives me hope! So glad that things worked out for Sci and Mars and I hope things continue to get better from today and into the future. :)
