Okay. This might get me in some trouble, but...

No. I'm not a Nigerian prince looking to get financial help in regaining my kingdom... but I'm going into begging mode.

Not for myself, but for a dear friend and his mate. Grover and "Understanding Spouse" have run into a situation they are not able to handle. What with Grover's bout with heart surgery and continuing migraine attacks, they have run out of financial resources they desperately need right now.

"Understanding Spouse" has landed a much better job, but it requires them to move from Fla, to Utah. Normally this would be a relatively simple task. Pack up your stuff, toss it into a truck and head out, right? Well, with the medical expenses incurred from Grover's brush with the reaper, their financial resources have long passed the "We can deal with it" stage.

The company "Understanding Spouse will be starting work with hasn't come through with the sort of promised moving expenses they sort of promised when "Spouse" accepted the job, leaving Grover and mate deeply in need.

Grover and "Understanding Spouse" have, over the last few years, come to be my "Family of the heart." Their acceptance of me and my TG status has been accepted by them whole heartedly and I want to do whatever I can to help them through this crisis. To that end, I am begging you to do whatever you can to help them reach for a better life. To do that, they need your financial help.

I know this is a huge ask, but I ask it for my dear friends and I ask it from any of you who have been entertained by Grover's marvellous stories. Grover and spouse don't know I'm doing this and I will probably catch merry hell from both of them for doing it, but that's for me to deal with.

Please, go to https://www.gofundme.com/our-moving-disaster-2urvt6k4 and contribute whatever you can, even if it's only a couple of bucks, to help them reach for a better life.

If I had the money to do it all by myself, I would, but I'm just as strapped as most of you out there are. I've contributed all I can afford already and I know some of you have already jumped at the chance to help..Thank you.

None of you owe me or Grover anything other than your enjoyment of what we have written, but I'm asking anyway. I get nothing from any of this except the sataisfaction of doing my best to help a friend. I wish I didn't have to do this and, like I said, Grover and Understanding Spouse will probably give me seven different kinds of hell for being so bold as to beg for help for them.

If you've already contributed, thank you and God bless you. If you haven't, or can't, thank you anyway. I know, as I said earlier, lots of you are just as financially strapped as I am.
