I want to thank all of you who donated to Jay’s GofundMe. I had originally posted this at Conservatics and a few certain assholes tried to say it was a fraud and fake. Those idiots know who they are and karma awaits them.

The page has been updated to let you all know how things are going with him. He will have to have a procedure done and then surgery. He’s really bummed about it but it is what it is. He’s never been through something like this so all help whether monetary or prayers, are very much appreciated.

I made my name because my hubs is a Locomotive Engineer on the Railroad for over 45  years now.  It’s funny how it fits right into the TRUMP TRAIN.  I am one of God’s many Children trying my best daily to live by God’s Word.  I have many hobbies on the computer and off the computer.  God Bless!
