DOING IT REAL TOUGH THIS CHRISTMAS

I Learned early in life that the spirit of Christmas although well intentioned was short lived. The yuletide values lose their influence at other times of the year when the desperately poor on struggle street tough it out. Most of these under privileged have physical abilities to enable them to battle through with the help and guidance from govt authorities, However, In the lower order of necessity we have the less self reliant community, people who have lost hope and have hit rock bottom, through misfortune or tragic circumstances.
Take the case of Rhonda Taylor or anyone else in similar circumstances, She buried her ten month old daughter recently, less than two weeks before Christmas. The service Cost $3,000.00 that Rhonda scraped from relatives friends and various charities.
Rhonda; in her twenties has two children Eight and Two, she has no partner or parents and suffers from a chronic heart condition and needs surgery to correct it, her young baby boy james was born partially blind and has been diagnosed with epilepsy. Rhonda has difficulty eating and sleeping and spends her time clutching Mia her dead babies blanket, because she Say's it still has her smell. Rhonda's poetry keeps her going along with the knowledge that her baby is no longer suffering.
The struggling mum Say's she is not looking for handouts, but there is none more deserving of a helping hand.

All donations can be made by contacting the WESLEY MISSION ON 1800 021 821.
Or you may donate to your local charities. Thank you for reading this, Have a wonderful Christmas. VEST DAILY GAGGLE.

Not a bad score for a non kneeler or nocangoist, too many prayer boson's concerned over their beautiful places of worship, than giving succour to the needy.
No thanks from recipients I notice.
Enjoy your Christmas, back soon.

Vest said...

LDL. Thanks.
Recipients more than likely too poor to own or access a computer, in order to acknowledge.

Saby. How many times do I have to tell you, 'No effing on this blog'.

Keshi said...

u too mate.

But what's Craker?

Keshi.

Vest said...

Keshie, A Christmas cracker, party thingy, pull apart-made of paper, tubular-ten inches in length- gets more exciting as I try to explain, doesn't it. Anyhow I have explained on your blog. Merry Christmas.

Keshi said...

bon bons :)

Keshi.

I am receiving info that the new beta blogger is a total pain in the ass, is there any one else out there who can enlighten me on this problem, I have not switched over yet. I have just lost a comment that I published, Is this a deliberate ploy from blogger to stir me up?

Vest said...

Keshie. That's right BonBons, the term slipped my memory, although originally these thingies had lollies implanted in them, a French idea, BonBons being nuts or fruit fondant dipped in chocolate or fondant.
Idi Amin. His nick name was BonBon I am reliably informed. Not difficult to work that one out.

Anonymous said...

no it wasn't hard to work out. meaning of course a chocolate colored nut, but is it not bordering on a little bit of racism on your part. Idi Amin was not all that bad.

Keshi said...

**Idi Amin. His nick name was BonBon

mebbe his bonbons were made of human lungs? LOL!

Keshi.

Vest said...

Anonymous: I used the term chocolate covered(Not Coloured)I would not be more racist than the vast majority of our kind are. I am who I am, not how I express myself:(
I cannot believe that there was a streak of charity and goodness within the actions of Idi Amin, his excesses and downright cruelty are well documented.
May I suggest that you make a donation to your favoured charity this Christmas, and to you your family and friends have a wonderful Christmas.

Vest said...

Anon : Your belief is unfounded, the answers are "No", "No" and "No".
I have no affinity to the Faith Industry (Read my profile) except for the Hope and Charity segment.

There is nothing so impertinent, so senseless and foolish, as Your vulgar way of discourse, when mixed with Oaths and Curses. Get well soon.
Have a wonderful LSD Christmas.

Anonymous, or should I say anonyturd. So you with the uncultured brain of a wet fart, deem yourself the self anointed judge of righteousness. Your analytical conception of my person has already been promulgated by other dim witted morons such as your self and it is not news worthy. I can only assume your title 'Anonymous' which was also used by several others, is your inbred family name and it leaves me wondering if you were born with multiple heads.

Get Well Soon. mxaahny vest.


comment moderation is now being installed over the Xmas break.
keep it clean and pleasant, have a wonderful Christmas.

Resurrecting this post 3-2004. can provide a few laughs
