Something is nagging at me, big-time. The other night someone told me they came by to give me a sweater & shoes.

I went out front of my house directly thereafter & found a form rolled up & put into my front door that said

it was from the Cerebral Palsy foundation, and that I missed their pick-up.


Meanwhile, nothing was ticked off on the form & neither did I arrange anything YET for pick-up; no one called me either.


I am not SPINNING tales about what I mentioned yesterday, about wanting to donate items to this foundation this week;

I really am looking forward to gathering up the OVERABUNDANCE of stuff I don’t need around here

to help out people who are really in need of them.


If any of you have any pointers to lead me in the right direction, please fill me in.

I should be able to have the stuff together by Saturday morning.


What has prompted me to speak about this again today is something that happened to me about a year ago, when a so-called friend of mine (whose name I won’t mention here) actually admitted to taking a clear plastic bag from the front of someone’s house that was full of stuff that was supposed to be donated to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation and brought it to my house, saying that they took it because they felt that I needed the things more than the people they were meant for, of all things!
I reamed them out for doing this very LOW, UNCLASSY & DISTASTEFUL thing, telling them to put it back where they found it because if the stuff is ever linked back to me then people will think that I am a thief, and the lowest kind, at that! The person insisted that I shouldn’t worry about it, but I am. I was afraid to ask them which house they found this sitting in front of, or even to put the bag back there myself, in fear that someone would see me & think that I was up to no good, because there is a law in this city that states that we cannot put our garbage bags in front of anyone else’s home except for ours (and I found that out the hard way as well about 20 years ago when I was running late for work & had just missed the garbage man then ran across the street to add mine to the neighbour’s, when a cop pulled up beside me to tell me that it was a ‘no-no’).


Getting back to this stuff I have here, I wish to give it to the people it was meant for & am publicly apologizing to the original owners of it, on behalf of the person I know, for causing them any troubles, even though this person hasn’t actually made any attempt to do so themselves.
PLEASE help me, if you can, by telling me what you think I should do about it, because the stuff that was in the bag had some Chinese types of things in there, and I find that there are a lot of Chinese people trying to befriend me as of late. This could all be related in some way, couldn’t it?


I have a feeling that the people this property came from could very well be living about 1/2 a block north of me, but I’m just guessing here, or they could very well be Korean, because the owners of the corner store had a note in their window saying they were supporting Korean business owners’ rights in this city, or something to that effect. Actually, I do have a picture of that note that I took the other day, but that is another story in itself & yet another lengthy blog in the works. I am so awfully worried about clearing my tarnished reputation, even though I’m on friendly terms with my neighbours (I hope) & I most certainly do not wish to be the brunt of any further scrutiny or accusations from the people living in the hood in which I’ve lived the majority of my life.


A friend of mine whom I asked for advice regarding this grave matter of concern for me told me to be friendly & just don’t trust anyone. I am friendly, that’s the point I’m trying to make here. Just because I am friendly to people, doesn’t mean that they trust me. Some of the biggest criminals around can be the friendliest to people. There is a German word for this & I think it’s called hönisch or hönich, and I believe that it means something like being sly & cunning in a sugary-sweet kinda way, if you know what I mean. I tried to look this up using the search in Bing, but to no avail. Either way, I’m not wasting any more time on that, but to cut a long story short, even though I’ve never had any children myself, I find that I’ve been having to ‘babysit’ a lot of the adult children I’ve come to know throughout my life, along with finding myself being put in the position of having to scold them for their harmful, reckless & blatantly uncaring ways. If I can help these people to get back on the right track, by telling them how wrong some of the things are that they’re doing, and I can actually get them to ‘STOP & see the light’, then I feel that I have done something of significant value for humanity. SOME PEOPLE JUST DON’T SEEM TO THINK BEFORE THEY ACT (and I include myself here, as well).


For those of you who don’t know what Cerebral Palsy is, it’s a disorder usually caused by brain damage occurring at or before birth and marked by muscular impairment. Often accompanied by poor coordination, it sometimes involves speech and learning difficulties.
