I'm very disturbed by this and Doug's post in another forum.

Doug, there is no need to be cryptic here. Maybe our love won't do sh!t. But maybe it will. But we need to know what we're praying for. Or sacrificing for. Or pulling the limbs off of unimportant creatures for. Or whatever. Doug: I love you, buddy, and don't let the physical bullsh!t get you down. You're BIGGER than a bunch of cells. Or maybe you aren't. Love ya anyway.

WORD!

All honor and respect to you sir. I hope the new year will yield higher returns in yor life, art and business. That having been said, I'd TOTALLY be the one to snatch this up if I had the cash.

Humbly,
Christian

I wish you the best, Doug! I'd love to take you up on your offer, but I couldn't possibly make the trip.

Doug,

I think you know our love and respect for you are unbounded my friend. I hope your challenge rights itself somehow. I feel for your situation. I had plantar fasciatis in my foot REALLY bad for a couple of years and I could barely walk anywhere without extreme pain. A chiropractor of all things understood the foot better and pretty much fixed in in one VERY PAINFUL session, but I walked out pain free. It was nothing short of amazing. The podiatrist I had gave me cortisone shots that hurt like hell and insoles that didn't do ****.

Be well my friend! Please send me some pics of the setup if you have some. You've got me cogitatin!

Doug, I really wish I could take you up on this. My wallet won't let me this time, but if there's anything else I can help with, let me know. Seriously.

Thanks for the thoughts y'all.

Cifford, I wish it was a simple heel rouitine. (Not to belitlwe THAT set of pains) Combination of many things which include the back going out most of the time...leg muscles and foot bones...a farking symphoney of excrutiational cacaphoney mostly instantly relieved when I plant my Jabba the butt down. Prior to this last trip to Disneyland I used to put in about 12-14 hours of this...renting that scoter was an epiphany. Smile

Let me break this down for folks. Someone needs to do this. Why?

- This is economy proof. The worse the economy, the more people look for deals. What's one of the best places to find a deal? Flea markets. Dropping two quarters into can for a bit of escape while you're at a flea market is easy and people do it.

- Can you make this for cheaper than Doug is offering? Maybe. Sure, you could get a cheaper EZ Up but they are easily be taken out by one hyperactive canine. I can tell you this from experience. I went through two cheap ones before I figured out I needed to put the cash out for a good one. And then, either way, you'd need one of Doug's zibits. If you go this route, you'll be set up from the get go.

- Doug is including signs. I made my own, but Doug has a knack for these things. Mine are on quarter inch plywood and are hand painted. Because of their weight I only hang one. Doug's are light, and knowing him, he's put the time into the correct wording. And, as I've learned, wording can indeed make a difference.

- Doug is including the display case. I've seen pictures of his set up. Mine, an upside down plexi-glas aquarium looks like a trailer park in comparison.

- The zibit of your choice! What more needs to be said? Go with a mer, though.

- All you need to do is get a table (go to Walmart or Target), plunk down a check and go pick it up. Tables are cheap. It's a sound investment. You can set up wherever is appropriate on you're way home and you'll probably pay for gas. The whole thing will fit in your back seat. And who couldn't use a trip to California, anyway?

- You'll be doing something that is a hell of a lot of fun. You'll be helping out a brother. You'll recoup the expense.

Enough said, except to add that I'm totally unprompted in writing this. Doug has treated me extremely well over the years and now he needs a hand. I can't afford it right now, but I hope these points help convince someone to step up and give it to him.

My own personal experience with Dougs Zitbit was that while I was busy tending to my show during a five day state fair, my son had made $1,250. in quarters by charging 50 cents admission to the zitbit.

It was great fun and ez money and if I lived in SoCal this one would be sold.

Here's a hint for the lucky buyer that will have them lining up for you.
Get yourself some bright neon stickers for the kids that read
"I saw The Strange Thing" and give it to everyone that see's the exhibit.

Let soldiers and service people in for free.


Enjoy the coins,

Getting old ain't for sissies, is it Doug?

While I'm still on what's left of my feet after multiple toe amputations, my arthritic knee and compressed disks in my back are slowly but surely leading me into 'scooter' territory, too.

In short, I empathize. I hope you get your wheels soon.

I figure I'll be getting old when I discuss medical conditions like it's something I give a crap about (:-) )...I just want to ride and not hurt...

Doug, I too am concerned about your current condition.
The options you choose in finding a solution which will provide mobility are entirely yours of course. As a suggestion only' you might want to yahoo search
'hover round chairs'. I have seen their television commercials many times.
Supposedly if one qualifies, betweem medicare and your own insurance; the electric hover round may cost you nothing.

Best of luck my friend!
