David Mitchell (Patron) just called me 4:09 Saturday and his car has blown the engine in Indianapolis Indiana. He needs help- because his tools are in is truck- like all of his tools he cannot abandon the truck. David can’t just leave his tools because they cannot be replaced. IS ANYONE ABLE TO GET TO INDIANAPOLIS TO HELP DAVID? David DOES NOT HAVE A CELL PHONE WITH HIM. He is at PepBoys right now and I have that number and will provide it to anyone who can reach out to David. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!

UPDATE Sunday AM- June 26th DONATIONS NEEDED! PLEASE HELP PATRON ! David has received a ride to Dayton via Ampeater (L/J). However, David is desperately in need of cash to enable him to get transportation. I am accepting donations on David’s behalf- via my paypal account riverhouserustics@yahoo.com. I will ensure that David receives 100 percent of all donations. For those of you who have generously supported David throughout this ordeal THANK YOU!!! For those of you who are willing to donate- any amount will be appreciated. Even a single dollar will help. Honest and thank you in advance for your support.

Sunday- June 26th 9:00 AM Pittsburgh time UPDATE
There has been some confusion about how to use paypal to send money. To send money via paypal you go to paypal.com and it is a very simple, secure method.

Click send money continue
click family and friends
you will send money TO riverhouserustics@yahoo.com FROM your own email address
and etc.

IN the memo please indicate David Mitchell

I do not have a riverhouserustics.com site. Please do not look for one. My email address is legit- I use it every day for business. My paypal account is legit- I use it everyday for business. I am not sure why anyone is getting a “phishing” error? Paypal is secure- I am not a scam artist. David really is in need and believe me- he would help anyone in need- in fact he always gives far more than he receives. :) Hence my desire to help a friend. If you have any questions and would like to speak with me my home phone number is 724-540-5006. I am Kelly. :) If you would prefer to send a check- please call me for my address or pm here through L/J for my address and I will gladly provide it. :) I think this misunderstanding occurred when an L/J member posted that my account had been hacked….Please believe me when I tell you there has been no hack- David Mitchel- Patron is in need, and I am trying to facilitate some help for him. Grateful appreciation for any and all help is humbly proffered in advance. I am on bended knee. Thanks so much.

Sunday June 26th 1:10 PM UPDATE
David is still in Dayton, in Super 8. An L/J friend has gone to meet him and take him to breakfast. They may come up with a plan of some sort, but until then the plan is to get enough money so that David can procure a rental car that will get him and his tools on his way to Virginia where he is going to help his brother who had a quad bypass. David will return the car in Pgh, I will pick him up and his family will come here to retrieve him as their health and schedule permit. I have wired to David all donations received so far, however, the money will take about 3 days to land in his account, so for now he is stuck and needs to pay for the hotel room, and some food. And of course the rental car once the money is available in his account.

Any donations for David- the patron saint- okay the bohemian patron saint- are most appreciated and can be sent through paypal to me- and then I will transfer funds to David. To send money- even 1.00 will help- go to paypal.com. Click send money. Send the money as a gift= no fees charged. Send the money TO riverhouserustics@yahoo.com. The money is FROM YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. I will acknowledge your donation by way of this blog and also a return email from me. I have had 3 emails kicked back to me though as undeliverable, so I am now posting thank yous on here as well as sending emails to ensure that you know your donation has been received in the paypal account. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU.. and THANK YOU in advance to all those who will donate.

Now, I am going to a family bridal shower from 2-? and when I get back I will check emails, paypal donations and send thankyous and answer questions then. So please don’t think I have gone to Mexico and absconded with the donated funds. :) I won’t. I promise. :)

Sorry…I’m just too far away to be of any help. Let us know if/when him & his tools are safe.

I’ve been racking my brain…but no. I can’t think of a single person from that part of the country… I used to have relatives EVERYWHERE but they’ve migrated further south or stayed here in NY. Sorry.

I did a search and pulled up every entry with the word Indiana in it- I am sending mass emails for emergency help- I am hoping someone out there in L/J willl know someone who can HELP PATRON. This is terribly important.

Does anyone have an alternate phone number for Donald Mee (member L/J)? He lives in Indianapolis- and I called his number listed on his website-and left a message. I also sent him an email. If anyone has his number please let me know or call him and ask for assistance. Please.

Just talked to David, and he thinks he has somebody coming from (Dayton?) to help him. David is charging his computer and may be on line soon.

The address of Pep Boys is 7201 E. Washington, Indianapolis which is on the east side of the city. It’s about 20 minutes or so from Carmel. I’m not going to try to activate my friend unless something goes wrong with David’s Dayton connection.

Thanks for the update. I am guessing I will be the Pittsburgh connection and will retrieve him on this end. Thanks everyone for the help and please keep me updated. :) I will do the same.
