I am mere DAYS away from my annual "Spydie Run" and it's gearing up to possibly be the best one we've ever had.
with my new adventure owning a music venue/bar, I have been blessed with many groups and others choosing our location for big events... well I have 3 big events in a row which has had me quite scattered, to say the least...This past weekend was event #1. It was BEYOND AWESOME.. 150+ Boozefighters rode in to have drinks and lunch and it was such a great day! Then comes Easter... we got to sleep in then went back to work to clean up from the day before. I was reflecting on what a blessed weekend we had experienced.
We had dinner planned with my kids yesterday evening so I went to the store for a few food items and then rushed back to my son's home. It was a fabulous evening spent with those I love. Just as I am about to head home, my phone rings. It's my neighbor. They informed me that someone had just drove to my home to drop off my wallet. That's when my gut sunk. I realized I had left my wallet in the shopping cart after unloading items to my car. I had over $500 in my wallet - money I had been saving from bartending. I had tucked some in a separate compartment to surprise my sweetheart. His feet are killing him and he's been wanting new riding boots. The rest was going to be used at my charity event this weekend. We have had some incredible items donated to the silent auction and I was planning to bid on them. It was ALL gone. My HARD-EARNED MONEY was now in the hands of someone who didn't do a fucking thing to earn it.
Now, thanks to the dishonesty of others combined with my own carelessness, the designated charity (a Veterans Organization) will be short $500 in donations. I have cried to the point of dehydration.
I do not think this world is rotten but there sure are a lot people who fit that description. I am going to keep my chin up and hope that folks show up and show off for this worthy group of Vets who need the funds.
