Money Well Spent.

Remember how conflicted I felt over receiving money via Gayle's death? I think I found a way to put it to good use.

My friend Matjames Metson is a starving artist who love love loves his dogs. One of his dogs, Boris, ate a Kong toy. Over the past few weeks there have been a series of vet trips -- some frantic. While there has been progress, there has not been a cure. Today Boris went under the knife for $2,500 worth of surgery to finally get these toy bits OUT of him. Matjames doesn't have $2,500 to spare, so he's been selling his artwork online at reduced prices.

I spent some of Gayle's money to buy one of his pieces. I get to support an independent artist AND help save a beloved pet, two things that I'm certain Gayle would approve of.

Incidentally, should anyone else be in the market for puppy surgery-supporting art: https://www.facebook.com/matjames/media_set?set=a.10151721047680281.1073741831.666605280&type=3
