(Not) Riding off into the Sunset

Well, That Didn't Last Long. I meant to retire, I honestly did, but as I mentioned prior to my retirement from Reglue, I would continue to help those financially disadvantaged students when I could.


I'll make a long story short, an administrator from the local college Student Services office, got wind of what I do and asked me in for a meeting. It was a pleasant meeting, during which, she handed me a piece of paper with the contact information for seven students in need of a computer. She asked me If I could provide these kids computers.

I mentally did an inventory of the few things I have left, and told her I could; but retired means retired, and I would not be able to be of assistance after this. Truth be told, the past 20 years have kicked my ass and I aim to retire to a small lakeside town by Lake Buchanan in a few months.

I have a hard time saying no, and since these kids start college in the fall, I need to get to work. Plus, it will take care of most of the inventory I have left. Some will be taking remedial classes this summer in order to take the college-level courses they signed up for in the fall. And they all meet the requirements to receive a Reglue computer.

So after going into storage and picking out the machines with the least mechanical needs, I do have the computers to meet this challenge, but just barely. I just don't have the money. It's going to cost 345.00 to get them serviced and into the possession of these kids.

This will be the last time I come to my community for this help. I will ride off into the sunset this time, I don't have any more computers to fix up and give away.

If you can assist, I would deeply appreciate it, as I need to get started on this project as soon as possible. You can do so via the cash app with the user $reglue or via

And as always, thank you for helping me do what I do.

All Righty Then

Be nice. No politics, potty mouth or name calling. Just because we can't see each other doesn't mean that words have no impact. Most of all, have fun.
