RC and his wife have been in my thoughts for a long while now ever since he said a few weeks back that Tara-Sue was in a nursing home.

My thoughts and prayers are with them: does anyone know how the two of them are?

I don't know, I hope they are both okay. Was RC on yesterday?

I think I will message him.  Smile

(He hasn't been active since the 28th of October, I didn't realise. It didn't seem like it)

I just emailed him.  I think that Ash also has RC's phone number.

I spoke to him on the phone for about an hour a couple weeks ago.
He was doing ok.  Well, as ok as can be because of the situation he's in.
I debated whether or not to post this because it is RC's personal business, but I feel that he would probably tell you all the same things and wouldn't be angry with me for telling you.

His (common law) wife Tara Sue is near death.  She's in a nursing home and has lost many of her regular bodily functions.  She's basically shutting down.

Remember how he did 30 days in jail for drinking earlier this year?
Well, that cost him his children.  The state took them and put them in foster care.
All he's gotta do is wait until January and he gets them back.

On top of that, Tara Sue is no longer working and RC can't afford the mortgage payments on their old farmhouse on his own.  So he's going to be losing his house soon.
He told me that he hoped to get a two bedroom apartment for him and his kids soon.

So to sum it all up, just about every f***ed up thing that could happen to him has happened.
He told me that he's taking it in stride and trying to be as upbeat about it as possible.

If I hear anything more from him, I'll be sure to let you all know.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

That's too bad.  I will keep him and his family in my prayers.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
