Tom's Bicycle Broke Down

I saw Tom this morning. He told me that last week his bicycle handlbars broke when he was transporting Reba. He said it will cost as much to repair the bike as to buy a new one. Tom needs his bike because it provides him with needed exercise and it is his only way of transporting Reba.

The Harris Bank Account is still open. It has a little money left in it. If you would like to help out, here is the contact information: Make checks payable to "Find Reba"c/o Harris Bank 99 West Washington Street Chicago, IL 60602. Or if you'd like, visit that bank location to donate. Otherwise, you can direct your donation to Kathy Harrod's contact information below.

I saw Reba late last week in the morning with Tom at his usual spot. She was all bundled up in the cart. She looked good and really enjoyed being pet.

Update on Tom and Reba

I saw Tom last Friday. He looked warm in a parka someone has donated to him. He said Reba is doing very well. She had her 13th birthday on January 6.

He was talking to me about how much he likes Johnny Cash. Someone had given him a DVD of a movie Johnny was in in 1982. Tom also went on to say how much he liked Johnny Cash's show and all of the different musical acts.

Tom is continuing on his high blood pressure meds. He says his medicine is delivered. He seems to be doing well.

Reba's vet care is covered completely. He says her limp is better on her meds. She continues to do well and is very playful.

It seems that Tom could still use donations to help make ends meet. Please donate to the Harris Bank account or to Kathy Harrod on Tom's behalf.
