This does not include the request for 200 Amazon gift cards in increments of fifty and one hundred dollars.

|as of midnight June 30, 2014|
Please, dear readers, just because you are on vacation, does not mean you neglect Father's needs! Father's creditors don't take a summer vacation. Just as your local parish needs you to turn in envelopes for the weeks you miss when traveling, Father needs you to chip in for the blog posts you might have missed. Perhaps only registered donors should be allowed to comment?
Watch the money.
I feel dirty. I need a shower.
