Hey Court - ya out there?

Ok this might be a silly idea, but we all know about Court's situation. I was thinking he could post up his paypal address for anyone who wants to throw a couple of bucks his way. It ain't charity - its helping a friend in need kind of thing.

I think that is a great idea if he's comfortable with it! Maybe something along the lines of caringbridge.com could be set up... Court, if you're around... let us know!

Never silly to help a friend - and good call on Caring Bridge, Arti.

I was flipping through old threads last night and came across Court's thread where he was getting kicked out by his roommate. That was where this idea came from. To be honest I don't think I would handle his situation with anywhere near the grace that he has shown. He's contributed a lot here too - just thought it would be cool to give something back. Assuming as Arti said that he's cool with it.

This thread needs a picture of two cats hugging, and I can be the man to provide it.



Edit: too late.

You have a great number of friends at Foo. If you're ever in my neck of the woods, you are more than welcome to take a load off here.

I'm not sure how it works either.

edit: just saw Court's last response so no worries.

Court - hang in there buddy. Keep on keeping on and Happy Thanksgiving.

you know, that was a truly selfish and insensitive post!

If I wasn't in such a rush for my appointment with Siu's sponge bath nurse, I'd really give you what for!

Maybe he will change his mind if we put something together with spare parts. We have plenty of those i'm sure. Frame size may be the only issue..

But if the built up frame only fits Falkon or I, we'll be happy to take it.

it is awesome to have friends out there but, if someone gave me money, i would probably just use it to buy a bicycle frame. I came home to find out just how bad that wreck was on my road bike and ,there is a new carbon track frame for $500 at the lbs.
