According to the amount of foreclosures in wednesdays paper Camden will be able to fill its homeless shelter to capacity.

Just calculate the amount of money the tax commissioner will not be collecting. With a tax digest 85% residential the taxes are about to go thru the roof. Homeowners are responsible for financing 5 governments in Camden!

Are you serious or joking? If serious, when was this?
This is not a secret. This man has been making money at exit one for years and most of all the locals learned he was scamming people. The money he gets is tax free too. So keep on giving to every body you see holding that begging sign. They probably live a whole lot better than you.

No. But a one way bus ticket to a blue state would be a good start.

Up until a couple of months ago, there was a man who, accompanied by his little dachshund, would stand at the base of the southbound exit ramp at Exit 29 and panhandle. He was probably in his 60's.

He lived in the woods in the northwest "leaf" of the cloverleaf at Exit 29.

He did his shopping at the Goasis. He took the occasional shower at the Flying J.

One day, when I was gassing up at Goasis, he was there. I had bought a bag of dog food, some dog snacks, and a small food bowl that I took with me anticipating an opportunity to give them to him for his dog.

When the guy that gassed me up finished, the old man was sitting at a table outside Starbucks. I gave the attendant the bag and asked him to take it over to him.

When he saw what was in it, the old guy came over to my van and thanked me profusely. We talked briefly about what a "good girl" his dog was and so on. I could tell that he was an alcoholic with some psychiatric problems, but harmless and friendly. He was known and well liked by all the folks who worked at Goasis.

Several more times over the course of a year or so, I gave him food for the dog and a little money for himself.

One Saturday, a couple of months ago, my friend and housekeeper, Sarah, and I, were headed to Savannah to do some cleaning for my father. I had brought along a multi-pack of Vienna sausages. He had told me how much his dog liked them (not to mention that he could eat them as well.) I looked for him as we were gassing up but did not see him.

When we turned onto the northbound ramp at Exit 29, there he was sitting in the tree line off the left side of the ramp taking a smoke break. When I pulled over, it turned out that he had been there several hours trying to thumb a ride north.

He told me that the day before, two Glynn County deputies had had told him that he had to be gone be sundown Saturday because someone had complained about him being there. His dog was not with him.

I gave him and his bedroll and a couple of bags a ride. He told us that the setup he had at that exit had been the best he had had in years. He said that someone had given him a nice, new, spacious tent that he had to leave in the woods.

As to his dog, he said that as luck would have it, a man in a Mercedes Benz had shown up not long after the cops told him to leave and wanted to adopt his dog. He said it broke his heart to let her go but that she would have a better life.

"Luck?" Or was the guy in the Mercedes the same son-of-a-bitch who had siced the cops on the old man?

He asked to be let out up at the exit to the Golden Isles Parkway. I gave him the Vienna sausages, a couple of bottle of water, and some cash, as did Sarah.

Yes, there are some scam artists. This poor fellow was not one of them.

I know who you are talking about. Had seen him and his dog out there many times. Stopped and gave him a twenty about two and a half months ago. Saw him there about a week ago and had wondered were his dog was. Thanks for more of the story.

Thanks.

I'm glad he's back.

I hope they will leave him the hell alone.

I'll watch for him next time I go to Savannah.

I hope his tent was right where he left it.

Kinda reminds you of yourself doesn't he except that you figured out a way to scam the government and us taxpayers out of money to buy a house, hire a housekeeper, buy a power chair and con some group into giving you a van. Lest I forget, you also get enough to stuff your pie hole full of everything that resembles food. We can only hope the next Moreno obit in the paper is yours.

Damn! A man that slick should surely be elected to something!

By the way, my housekeepr and her husband treated me to my annual birthday dinner at Peas and Carrots. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Afterwards, we lifted glasses of Harvey's Bristol Cream back at my place. Life is good.

And it is about to get WAY better! Choke on it!

Think so?

Ask the clueless young Black savage driving a white Volvo and living in Colerain Oaks who flirted with death by f*cking with me on Kings Bay and hour ago after spotting my two Romney/Ryan bumper stickers.

That was a pretty good story you wrote about the homeless guy Jay. Of course it's all bullshit. You've never done a kind thing in your life without expecting something in return. Keep telling yourself that story if it makes you feel better but nobody else is buying it.

Moreno, I read with interest your story about your kindness to the old bum and his dog. Why in the world would you do such a thing?

The only explaination for your behavior is that you are hedging your bets just in case. Still not quite sure about the afterlife are you?

Why not use "The Thing" at St. Marys waterfront park and feel at home? Standing inside and looking up is the identical view of the underbelly of any interstate overpass. A favorite place for the wandering homeless.

Alternatively, all religious beliefs are antiquated, superstitious horseshit and that one can be an agnostic or atheist and still be a very decent human being.

De facto, the vast majority of evil bastards on this Earth are now and long have been religionists, such as your hate-filled self.

By the way, if anyone gets any momentum going for a shelter, here's a great model:

http://www.sulzbachercenter.org/

I got a tour of their place some years ago.

Two years after the inset of my disability, after two years of physical therapy,(seven months as an inpatient at Brooks Rehab), my neurology certifed that I had reached "MMI." That's "maximum medical improvement." I was never going to walk again.

Well, I was amazed to find that I actually had two dozen perfectly serviceable pairs of shoes that were no longer large enough because of my wearing
AFOs (Ankle-Foot Orthoses, i.e., braces.)

I boxed them all up along with about 3 dozen pairs of socks of various colors and drove them down to the Schulzbacher Center.

Of course, cowardly agnostic that I am, I got quite a crook in my neck from constsntly hanging my head out of the window yelling,"Are you getting this, God. Are you writing it down?"
