Rally for the Wombat!

Posted on | November 10, 2019 | 7 Comments

If our regular readers are wondering why there has been no FMJRA or Rule 5 Sunday this week, it’s because our beloved Wombat has been experiencing health problems that have also turned into a housing problem. It’s a situation a lot like what my brother went through, with the bureaucratic hassles creating a very difficult situation.

Kevin has a Go Fund Me account where you can contribute, and you can also contribute to his PayPal:

I hit Kevin’s tip jar yesterday, and whatever readers can give him — $5, $10, $20, whatever — will be deeply appreciated.

Having one crisis after another with my family and friends has been emotionally exhausting, not to mention Alabama losing to LSU Saturday. But I won’t speak of that. It’s too traumatic.
