A small Gun Show Bleg

My apologies in advance.  I AM quite reluctant to do this, but…

End of this week is the Crossroads of the West Gun Show, here in Phoenix.  This is the BIG show, with 7-8 buildings (exhibit buildings in the State Fairgrounds), separated by a large parking area tarp-covered outside display area the size of another two buildings.  Something like 1500 tables.  And the Small Arms Review exhibit, as well.  Traditionally, I’ve been attending this every year, but the past few years I’ve not been as fortunate.

In December 2008, while attending this very show, I began having breathing difficulties.  We didn’t stay very long, nor see all the exhibits.  The end result was end-of-January 2009, I was hospitalized and diagnosed with lymphoma.  Six months of chemotherapy followed that.  Today (thankfully) I’m lymphoma free.  :-)

I tried to attend last year’s show, but other health issues occurred.  So, I didn’t get to see very much.  Those issues have in part been resolved (now wearing ‘ED’, the really big shoe (built-up) – and can walk better).

But this year there’s another issue.  On my small income, I really don’t have the means to drive across town, and pay parking and admission.  Certainly not enough to buy anything.  That’s not what I’m requesting.

If someone could cover parking and admission for two, it would mean a lot!  That’s about $32.00, last I checked.

Update – I’ve been informed I’ll have the needed funds, tomorrow!  Thank you kind benefactor!  gfa
