    As many of you know Scott Olson has been on hard times ..I know I shouldn't be putting this out here but any of you who know him knows he is a great guy and helps anyone who needs it.Now he is the one who needs help and he can only kill me once.Scott's girlfriend Lynn and the kids moved in with him seven months ago and have changed his life for the better.She got a job and has been their sole income.With the way things were they just couldn't hold on to the taxidermy shop anymore so it is gone and They got a house and now the lease on the house is gone and they can't find any affordable housing.They have had so much stack against them you wouldn't believe,So We have offered to have them move in with us here in Florida till they get on their feet and have a fresh start and to be honest a place to live.We will be turning our dining room into a bedroom,We will all pull together and make due and Scott will be working in my taxidermy shop and Lynn being a nurse will have a job in no time.Well they have entire house packed up and were ready to leave tomorrow and thought they would have enough money with her last two checks and the promise of some mounts picked up today to get them here ..But as fate has it once again it didn't work out.People will not be picking up mounts and Lynn's paycheck was not as much as anticipated.I know Scott is a proud man and would die before asking but he needs help.So I am asking for help for him.I am trying to doing a relocation fund for them and I know money is tight for everyone But if there is any way you could help no matter how small and would like to help,Please let me know I know they would be forever grateful Thanks Rhonda

    Hey Rhonda, I sent you a PM with some ideas to maybe help him long term to get on his feet again. You are a great person to help him out, but we already knew that! ;) I will also be sending a small contribution to the PayPal account. -Marty
