For A Veteran, For “KISS”, For Yellow Funereal Ribbons


January 15, 2016 by Labrys

2014-12-03 Day 46 Flame and Shadows2As I said on my more (ever slightly) active blogs at Herlander Walking and Steel Kachinas….I have a grim week ahead. I am even being forced into flying for the first time in over a decade.

A veteran as dear to me as my sons, Lincoln Marston, is dying at Duke University Medical School. Just after New Year’s he suffered the rupture of an aneurysm in his brain and almost a dozen catastrophic strokes. His wife, Amy, also an Air Force veteran who served with him in Afghanistan has no income whatsoever at this time.  They have two young children who are just becoming terrified they will have to say farewell to their father.

It is time to support the troops, any of you who call me friend!  There is a site to help raise money….for everything from medical bills to funeral costs.  I take flight this weekend, with my son who considered Lincoln another brother.  We have packed our black suits and robbed our savings accounts.  The miserable woman who can soon claim the title widow can’t even access Lincoln’s bank account.  Please throw a few dollars into the pot and pass the word to all and sundry.

Life’s a Bitch

Swimming Off…

…I am, just after Solstice. A tiny insignificant fish in the ocean of the internet.  All my posts from here on are pre-posted and I’ve found a different home where I can feel free and clear.

I hope all my friends find a better new year – I know we all had more than enough in 2020.  I’ve not been a wild fan of the entire 21st century thus far, just saying.  ::::waves with a flick of a mermaid tail::::
