I'm boosting a signal from tabaqui
Okay, so - here's my favor, dear flist.
Our very dear and long-time friend, Terry Carr is a Vietnam vet, who has been in a wheelchair for 40 years. He used to do wheel chair sports, including basketball and track, and even did sharp-shooting in the paralyzed vets Olympics. The man *skied*. Holy crap. It was terrifying enough with two working legs - no way i'd do it in a chair! He also is a photographer and used to take the most amazing black and white portrait/studio pictures, until he couldn't deal with the darkroom chemicals any more.
Lately, his health has declined, and he actually had to spend this last year in bed, trying to recuperate from a very bad VA visit. He ended up with pressure sores that made it impossible for him to sit up in his chair at all.
His van, that he used to drive all over in, has been non-functioning for years and - shocker - his disability pay doesn't cover fixing it. So he entered a contest, and was selected as one of six runner-ups. Now, people must vote to choose three of the six to win a fully customized van or SUV or car. He's been hovering in fourth place, and he needs votes!
You *will* be asked to log in via Facebook or to provide an email addy. You will *not* get spammed or added to any lists. You can vote until Aug. 2nd - that's the last day.
So please, flist - please go and vote for our dear friend, Terry Carr. Follow the link and click on 'entries', and then his name/face. You can read his entry 'essay' and vote.
Thanks so much. And if you can, please boost the signal. Time's running out!Love Your Car Contest
