I'm gonna warn you: if I happen to see you in person, I'm kinda cantankerous right now. Sick of this sling on my arm. I can't play piano, I can't open pickle jars, I can't clap. You can imagine how much this bums me out, considering my love for applauding myself when I open pickle jars, then writing a song about it.
Yeah, fractured my elbow on the 4th of July falling on a soapy floor. Boo hoo. Attractive, huh?
But one of the news stories I had to do this week is the real reason I'm troubled. It's haunting me. Big time. A little girl passed away last month in McAdoo when a fire broke out in her family's home. Her name was Madison Arner - just 6 years old. In addition to losing this beautiful little girl, her family lost everything in the fire. So the community of McAdoo had a benefit for the family last week, raised almost $3,000 and somebody STOLE the money!! I can't imagine what kind of scum would do such a thing. But I also can't imagine what Madison's family is going through. Police are still looking for the suspect, but in the meantime, here's how WE can help!
They're having ANOTHER benefit for the family on Sunday, so pleasepleaseplease let's all try to hit it!!! Or help out! I know I will! Here's the info:
