Great writing, Scott Craven!
Thank you, USA Today, for picking up this story!
(The blog entries about the day I met Rusty and Timber and the development of our friendship may be found in the April 2012 archives.)
Several of my readers have expressed the desire to send Rusty and Timber some money. Talking with Rusty on the phone, I tell him about this.
Rusty says, “Just tell everybody that I thank them for praying for me and helping me get my buddy back.”
I ask Rusty if I can post his mailing address in my blog.
“That’s okay, but I can’t take any checks or money orders. I don’t want my government check messed up. ”
“Well, would it be all right if people sent you a gift card to Wal-Mart or something like that?”
“Yeah, that would be good.” Later in our conversation, Rusty returns to the subject of gifts. “You know, Sue? I don’t need anything. Tell everybody to give something to the people who don’t have a roof over their heads or don’t have anything to eat.”
“Are you sure, Rusty? People read the story about you and Timber and they care about you.”
“Okay, well, have them send me a coupon to Subway. Yeah, Subway would be good.”
Gifts (no checks or money orders please) may be sent to:
Rusty Reed, 55 South Lake Havasu Avenue, Suite F, #331, Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403-0938 (Rusty will move soon to the Lake Havasu City area for his winter camp.)
