My Wife Requires Your Assistance. She Is A Good Person.

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 14.472% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Back after vacation, and my mind is a jumble of potential posts.  Some Sad Things happened on vacation with the old ticker that make me realize a major portion of why I blog, I’m still chewing over Trayvon Martin, and of course I’m simultaneously jetlagged and on island time while untangling 100 catchup tickets from my Day Job.
So of course I’m shilling for Gini!
On Saturday, my wife will be riding 150 miles to raise funds to battle Multiple Sclerosis.  Or she will be trying to.  A hairline fracture in her foot from the triathlon has hampered her workout schedule, and the vacation even more so, so she’s basically headed into a long, gruelling ride without a whole lot of training.  Which means she’s going to be busting her back even more than usual to help out.
But this is personal.  One of our dearest friends in town, the vivacious Patti Substelny, suffers from this dread disease – and being the larger-than-life figure she is, she’s assembled a whole team of people to assist her in this quest.  Gini is a proud member of Patti’s Paladins, and every cent she raises helps Patti and thousands like her to get relief from their dysfunctional immune systems.
Gini feels bad because she hasn’t been as aggressive raising funds this year, so I’ll help her out: this is for a life-threatening illness, it’s something my beloved wife is sweating over, and it’s over by Sunday.  She’s gonna pedal her heart out for good people, and I for one would appreciate it if you’d throw in what you could to encourage her and aid some people who need it.
$35 will fund self-help groups.  $65 will fund wellness programs.  $120 will pay for a physical therapy session, and $200 will help bribe politicians.  But even $1, $5, or $10 will make a difference.  So please help if you can.
