* I told you earlier today that as soon as the tally board hit $1000 on our fundraiser for Peoria-area tornado victims that I’d post an Oscar the Puppy video. That goal has now been reached.
* Oscar and I haven’t been able to sit outside lately because of the weather, so we’re hanging out in our “great room,” by the fireplace. Occasionally, though, I get busy and he gets bored and wants to play. Sometimes, he makes that frustration audibly evident, as he did yesterday…
Many, many thanks to everyone who has donated so far. If you haven’t yet contributed, please click here. It’s a very easy process.
State Sen. Bill Brady is opening his Bloomington offices to accept donations for Washington tornado relief tomorrow.
The tornado-ravaged city is running out of places to store much needed donations. Brady said his office will accept toiletries, baby items, hats and gloves and basic hygiene items.
Brady said gas cards are also in demand.
“A lot of the folks are having to travel a great distance to and from school, to and from work and wherever they are living,” Brady noted.
Brady’s offices at 2203 Eastland Drive will be open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
