I 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.

Have you ever discovered a note from the postal service, delivery service, or a courier telling you that you weren’t home when they came to deliver something. You know you were home all day… or perhaps there was a ring at the doorbell and nobody there. Consider what it is like when you are mobility impaired or have some other issue that keeps you from flying to the door in a blink of the eye.

Just those who need a home delivery the most end up missing them and having to arrange to pick things up at a post office or depot. Your regular postman or delivery person might understand and know to wait that bit extra. But with deliveries often it isn’t anyone that knows your situation doing the delivery. You sure don’t want to advertise the fact on the front door that you have any sort of disability — to invite stray prowlers in to prey on you.

All it needs is patience on the part of people working to deliver as quick as possible to as many people as possible… sort of a conflict of interest there…

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!
