Tom needs Firewood - please help!
« on: December 01, 2015, 03:34:34 PM »
Folks,

Tom is in need of firewood to offset heating costs but cannot afford to purchase any right now.
He is also not physically well enough to load/split/stack it.

If anyone out there can help please PM me.

Thanks

I understand Tom is back in the hospital. Please send my best wishes. Don't have any firewood though

I felled two small apple trees in my back yard and was looking for someone to take it.   I have no way to haul it, but if someone can pick it up and take it to him he is more than welcome to it.

Carl, very generous of you lol

I'm in for a share of the cost. Call or PM me....  also interested in getting some meals or something catered for him and his mom... any ideas for someone in that area to contact? Also, don't know what his diet is limited too.

Great ideas folks, thanks for all the offers. I'm on board to split the purchase of a cord.

I don't want to get into details about his condition, but he is in very poor health right now. He's been in and out of the hospital and the treatment itself is very debilitating.


It might be good to arrange a meeting or conference call to brainstorm on other ways to help our dear friend.
I'll chat with a couple of you irl and see what we can pull together.

I've got a pickup truck and hitch, no trailer. I'm in single parent mode until next Friday, wife is in Baton Rouge. Timing gets tricky with having to be here and there, but if I can help with the truck, let me know.

I can meet at the Shop to help unload/stack, whatever and settle up.  All of course depending on the date/time.  If timing doesn't work, I can send someone a check.

Pepe's RCA "shaded dogs" are going fast.

I know there are more of you that can spare a few bucks.  If you can Paypal me via "friends and family", send me a PM.  I have already received some commitments from our Vintage community.  Let's get behind the axe!!

Not the Shaded Dogs.   They are irreplaceable.   I seem to recall seeing some current new vinyl at your place that would be easily repurchased.   Didn't we listen to some Beck?

PBJ you may have some parts that aren't working well.  But your heart is bigger than that SUV. 

Stay strong my friend!

Tom Huffman has offered a cord that he has at his house in cranberry.
I need a few folks to help load/unload and stack it. I'm planning for Sunday morning.
Please chime in if you can help out.
