The Fat Guy Misnomer

Miss K and I had a visitor this week that is a long time forum friend and was a close neighbor for a bit when they were on a gate just down the road. We yap yap yapped for quite awhile and as she was fixin’ to get in her truck to leave she asked ‘What happened to that friend of yours?  The one you wrote about that had cancer?’  So I caught her up on what I knew about Scott the Fat Guy.

She probably knows Scott

She probably knows Scott

Around the Palace, everything has a name and when I catch Miss K up on Scott;  it is Fat Boy Scott.  Except I am thinking with all that chemo and radiation he ain’t fat any longer.  Back in the day,  he was a rake and a gambler,  a Texas music fan patronizing the smoky bars on Lower Greenville and Deep Ellum and from time to time he has been known to post pictures of curvaceous bikini-clad women on his blog for no other reason but he could.

As you can tell,  I like the guy.

I was running the traps this morning and Scott had a new blog entry which catches folks up on where he is at with the Cancer.  Struck me odd because, you know just this week, LB asked me about him.  You can go read the blog entry your ownself if you are wont to do so.  Scott has been tangling with the C for 3 years now and I have never once detected any self-pity. Not once.  Another reason Fat Boy Scott has my respect.

So what is coming down this morning friends and neighbors is that Scott’s fight just got amped up quite a bit.  He is gonna have to trek down to MD Anderson for several weeks and that is gonna take money he doesn’t have.  Pure and simple.  Go and visit his blog and if you feel it in your heart, throw some money down his PayPal pipe.   His mama handles the PayPal donations and he assures me none of the money is spent on whiskey or bottle blonds.   I sent him some dinero last year and attached a specific note to his Sainted Mother that the funds should be applied toward a good bottle of booze.  But you know how moms are — I bet she made him go out and buy peanut butter or socks with those pesos.   A donation to his Cancer Treatment Fund will be the best money you spent this week;  I can tell you that.  If that just ain’t doable, throw a few prayers his way.  He needs all the help we can muster.

There, but for the grace of God, go I.

  • Thanks for the link, Andy! You two crazy kids have been a big support to me over the (jebus, has it been 3???) years, and I am humbly appreciative. Provided I pull through this round of treatment, and I shall, one way or the other, yall are on my list of To Be Visited for 2014. I’m going to say eff the whole responsibility thing, and go visit people who make me grin. We shall compare iPods or eWhatevers, drain some Shiners.

    “There, but for the grace of God, go I.”

    Indeed. But if you quit smoking, it might make the task of God’s grace a little easier.
