Hi, Hobos.

it's your friendly neighborhood beggar-boy here again to ask for help.
I have to have heart surgery on the 17th of this month in
Sacramento which is a really long drive for us. I need to make about
5 or 6 trips for pre op heart mapping, the surgery, getting picked up
then follow ups. We don't have money for food, let alone money
for petrol. So if enough people chipped in a few bucks, we might
be able to do this.

My condition isn't life threatening but it makes me extremely ill
with vomiting shaking headaches and the worse part is not being
able to breath. It's reallllllllly scary when I can't breath. I can barely
walk up the stairs right now. It's exactly how my dad was before
he died of heart disease so I really want to get my ticker fixed.

I can offer in return graphic design services, commercial music production,
I have a few Manbird Experiment CDs left, I have a series of beautiful 
gicleé 16 x 20 prints from a a series called Battery 1938. I can
send a signed print or two. They are worth $200 unframed There aren't
many left as I only produced ten of each image.

Anyway, I know people have been complaining about me complaining
but sometimes you just have to sacrifice your dignity and self-respect
in order to stay alive.
 
My paypal account is diebold@designsonoma.com and I don't think
there is a minimum so if you just have a buck, hey, it all helps and
luckily gas is cheap right now. Also there a button somewhere you can
check that says its for friends or family and PP won't take a big chunk
out for themselves.

Thanks so much if you help and thanks even if you can't but would
if you could and pfffft if you hate me - but that's OK too.

(heart shape)

Rob

Dear friends,

I want to thank everyone who has helped us get through all these medical challenges.
I think we have enough for our travel expenses for the heart surgery and probably
enough for the next project. I have to see an orthopedic surgeon for my crunched up
back a week after my heart surgery. Without your help we wouldn't have had a penny
to put put petrol in the car to get back and forth from the hospital and doctor's offices.
So no need to send any more money unless you insist, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ho hee hay whoooo!

Warm regards,

MB

If you can't use paypal you're welcome to send cash or check

cuz we're still hurtin pretty bad. We had 2 food cards that wouldn't
work and we ended up having to pay for the food - or put it all back
and we ended up with a huge overdraft. We are so screwed. One of
them was our food stamps card and we still don't know why it doesn't
work. We can't leave the house without some sort of major cluster
happening. Every time. We're cursed. I'm supposed to go to the docor
tomorrow but I don't know how the fYck I'm going to get there. And now
they're in a different location which charges the patients to park in a
public parking garage about 18 miles away. Well, I'll check the mail
and see if something arrived from my sister who has a mattress full of cash
but hasn't followed through the last 3 times she promised to send 20
dollars for cash. Sometimes I hate what's left of my family.

Thanks so much to all who helped us out. We have enough to get to the hospital and enough 
for mag to pick me up and that's the main thing. Might even hav enough for the follow up
appointment to see if the surgery was successful. It better work because I really can't stand
being this sick. Anywho we really appreciate the help and when I feel better I'll try to send out
some prints and CDs.. Also, someone is publishing some of my poetry so I may have a few
books to send out as a token of our gratitude.

Cheers, Hobos,

Rob

The link didn't work so I just logged into my Pay Pal account and sent to your email.  Or was that a withdrawal I did?  I'm so confused!

All my prayers go out to you.  If you die on me I swear I'll come out there and kick your dead corpse's skinny ass all the way to hell and leave it there.  I kid you not!

Respectfully yours,

Your buddy

You can try this link

and Jrsy's payment came through fine.

Thanks so much for all the help. I'm so anxious about the surgery, 
knowing we should be able get there and back when we need to is a great
worry off our minds.

{#Hug}ManBirdio has never been rich but when any of us have ever been in need he has always been there with 10 or 20 bucks to help...When you have 20 and give 10 it mean a whole lot more than when you have thousands and give 20...You know?...He does that all the time...If you have a few bucks to spare shoot them Rob's way...Please, thanks.
