Our good pal Jurassic Pork over at the much-esteemed Welcome Back To Pottersville blog has put out a cry for help: he and Mrs. JP are about to be evicted and can use all the help they can get.
“It appears as if our only significant source of income has been kinked either temporarily or permanently. I have no explanation for why this is happening and I’m making inquiries to no avail. I’m still trying to get our SNAP benefits back and while that looks like a distinct possibility, doing so may prove to be a Pyrrhic victory (sort of like Trump’s government shutdown). The plain fact is, we have very little money in my Paypal account and the usual disbursement (half of which is eaten up by rent) should have arrived on the 18th. That was three days ago and, as stated, all inquiries have met with silence.
“Whether or not this is permanent, the fact is we’re short on next month’s rent, which is due in a week and a half, and I do not have enough in Paypal to even bridge that shortfall. The holidays devastated us in the long run as we spent money like everyone else, fully expecting our monthly disbursement to be there right after my birthday this month.”
JP, as you know, is one of the strongest and best voices on the blog-o-sphere and we are better for having him in peak form. If you can spare a few Ameros (and rhetorically I note that at this time of year, who can?), I cannot think a better way of spending them than by clicking on his Donate link.
