Gimme Shelter

Gimme%20Shelter[1] OOPS! not that kind of shelter….more da real kine….and so , folks, this is scout comin’ at ya from the north shore homeless shelter in beautiful down town north vancouver.

it’s getting damned cold out and i’m tired and weary from bouncing around from place to place so will hole up here and HOPE they find me housing soon!!!!

this shelter is like being in an institutionalized  hostel of some sorts….save that we get three squares a day.   room accesss after breakfast is only from 12:30 to 2pm (it’s nice to grab  a quick nap as sleeping is kind of on and off as there’s not enough blankets)….other then that there ‘s  two computers and a big screen tv that can be on from 6-11pm.

the male to female ratio is quite high , i’d say about 3/4 men, which has me a bit baffled and yet not, iffin’ ya know what i mean.

and that’s about it for now.   more reports later from the ‘not much happening here’ department.

    Stay safe, Scout! I can’t believe there are not enough blankets! Where are you keeping your van now? Can you bring extra clothing in with you?

    I’m worried about you! Let me know if you need ANYTHING!!!!!

    Take care scout. On the upside, you could be in northern alberta…:) on the yearning side, Kaua’i is lovely this time of year…wait, it’s lovely year round. Be good to yourself. s

    coyote…thanks….no need to worry……they can’t hand out extra blankies because in the past some fools abused the rules and used , say, 4 blankies to put between them and the mat to make it softer. so, it’s a matter of dressing warm for bed. my van is parked across the street, i can see it from my room.

    there’s a clothing closet here and really, there’s some very nice clothes in there. there’s also a thrift store across the street and a sally ann two blocks away. what i do need from you and others is prayers and/or good thoughts that i get housing really soon :D. many thanks!!!

    steve…ha, ya, no way i’d want to be northern alberta!!!! in fact there’s a guy here who is from there (but he complains about how the damp cold here goes right to the marrow). everyone’s just bundled up , inside and out. it’s like, when you’re inside you get to have your hat off and outer shell…..outisde you don your hat, gloves and outer shell. it’s not hard, really, but one does wonder why it’s so cold inside, but i’ve never asked 😀

    yearning for hawaii…you betcha!!!!!!!!!!! let’s see now, where are my non-existant air mile points 😀
