Low Cost? — Wheel Tales of Willow City

Low Cost 00Low Cost 01Low Cost 02Low Cost 03Low Cost 04Low Cost 05Low Cost 06Low Cost 07Low Cost 08Low Cost 09Low Cost 10I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

People who look after our loved ones — whether the disabled, ill, children, or the elderly — are often paid some of the lowest wages. They look after very intimate details in people’s lives. It is difficult for many institutions to pay more, but that leads to frequent changes in staff. It can be very difficult, especially for those who don’t handle change well. We are lucky that there are some great caregivers who do their jobs without considering the wages.

This strip* was published before as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name to “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.

We'll Make CentsWe’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit.

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!

The Sky is Falling! — The Gnomestead Tapestry – part 12

The fifth of The Gnomestead Tapestry stories — The Sky is Falling!

The Sky is Falling 056The Sky is Falling 057The Sky is Falling 058The Sky is Falling 059The Sky is Falling 060The current story for The Gnomestead Tapestry, “The Sky is Falling!” continues!

I started writing “The Sky is Falling!” a while ago but only got back to write its ending last Fall. It is a long story which I am breaking up into conveniently sized chunks. What would you do if you were told the sky was falling?

The holiday season has passed but there is still need for charity. I urge you to give to the charity of your choice. I also hope you remember the spirit of giving through the rest of the year.

If you are interested, check out We’ll Make Cents’ “Standing With Courage” project and their “50-Cents – a Jar of Change” drive.
