Ruthie On The Road, Update



-ALL PHOTOS AND EDITS BY RUTHIE RADER-


I am sitting in a quiet place, today and soon I will begin the long, cold walk back to the warming shelter. I am tired, today...just worn away.

I went to church with a friend, this morning. and watched little kids sing and act-out a play. I thought that their snow white angel wings and long, wispy wise men beards were fabulous.
But when the play ended and the lights came up, I just wanted to go back to my house.

But I couldn't nibble on a gingerbread cookie, sip peppermint tea and take a nap beside the
Christmas tree. Nope...not me. Because I don't have a home of my own.

I met a man who bought me another night in a motel room and put minutes on my phone. Then
I met a woman who brought me home to her house. I stayed overnight and then back into town
I went.

I think about Troy Fisher, who has a nice apartment with hardwood, carpet, a large flatscreen,
artwork and a big piano. Stupid Troy has everything...even a nice dog.

Now he's due to be arraigned (on 14 counts of possessing child pornography) at 9a.m. this Tuesday,
December 11, in Tacoma, Washington. He might lose his home and gain a jail cell. Right now, Troy
doesn't deserve the home that he's got.

I deserve one and it makes me mad to know that Fisher has
all but thrown away his personal place of residence.



Meanwhile, another fake, the so-called "trans-gender" is now gone from the
warming shelter in Corvallis, Oregon. IT lost his temper at a shelter volunteer
and was subsequently booted from the women's warming place.

Good Riddance To Bad Garbage.

(I am not in Corvallis now)

And Merry almost Christmas, everyone. Please be thankful if
you have a home that will hold all of your Happy Holiday
memories.

I think it would be nice to have you spend the holidays with me but you do not know me and I do not know you so here we are, two strangers that are alone for the holidays and would like to have someone to spend them with because they do not know each, thus you will spend the holidays with people you do not know i.e. strangers most likely, that just makes so much sense, not. I hope you have a Merry Christmas Ruthie anyway :)

Uhhh...ookay...so who are you? What's with the talk about Christmas? If I don't know who you are (according to you, anyway) then why would I want to spend Christmas with you?

I don't think that you understand my post, Anonymous: I am not so much interested in company over the Holidays as I want to spend the Season in my own home.

In fact, at this point, sharing is pretty much the last thing on my mind. I want my own home, period.

But thank you for the comment, anyway.
