So, I'll be away

for the next few days.... with the antibiotic starting to kick in, I feel dizzy and sleepy... and my throat still hurts along with my ears... I don't know how it will all go, hoping for the best here.

This is straight from my friend Tricia's site.

Hey, I don't know if you have heard about the gentleman in Utah who was shot by a kid from Vegas 4 times in the chest. He runs a lodge in Panguitch, Utah and the family from Vegas had come to rent a cabin . This was a random act of violence. Tracey is now paralized from the chest down. He has a family with 9 children to support. There is something you can do to help with this! Rusty Pickle is donating $500 in product to be raffled off on Legacy. You can enter your name 1 time for $5 or 5 times for $20. There is no profit in this. ALL FUNDS WILL BE DONATED DIRECTLY TO THE FAMILY. Rusty Pickle hopes to raise $10,000.00, enough to cover the family's catastrophic insurance deductable. There are also some fund raiser crops- one in Arizona and one in Salt Lake City. These will offer classes taught by Lance and dinner. again, ALL FUNDS WILL BE DONATED DIRECTLY TO THE FAMILY!! If you would prefer to do a direct donation, there is a bank account set up in their name.
Feel free to call 801-604-3007 if you have any questions. (This is my cell phone) WE CAN DO THIS GIRLS!! Please tell everyone you know about this! I will leave updates on this thread about where we are.
Here is a link to the ticket sales:
