Default Thumper Needs Our Help!!!

Some or most have read Brazos Hunterís (Michael) post regrading Thumper (Chris).....

I was able to visit with Chris tonight and asked him if I could share his need and reluctantly he said I could.

He is struggling with getting meals arranged.

He is just not up to doing it himself. He said he tried to find a service and hasnít had any luck.

Surely as big as The Green Screen Family is one of us has to know how we can make this happen for him.

I am going to start researching and I am willing to pay for it if someone knows how to make it happen.

Chris is like the rest of us and doesnít want to ask or say he needs help.

If anyone knows how to make this happen please PM me and I will run with it.

Please continue to keep praying for Chris!!

God bless - Bill

there are several options from heat and eat to having it all prepared and you just cook it. I will help in any way that I can. What is he preferring? any specific diet requirements? I will smoke and brisket and portion it up and drop it off.

Bill- when Kristin was sick the teachers set up a meal train and people signed up on line. I don’t know how to do that by maybe your wife is versed in that. I can’t cook diddly but would be happy to get Chris a meal or two or three. Bought a Ruger off him at the academy in town. We shot the bull for an hour - he’s a good Texan.

Do any of the food delivery services like waitr deliver to where he is? If so we can start a list of each day and someone can volunteer for each day. It may not always be home cooked, but at least it will be hot and delivered. That’s how we recently did it for a family that lost their husband/dad.

We set up the meal train for one of my teachers. You can buy meals and have grubhub or some other service deliver. If there are people close to him, they may make a meal and drop it at his house. Because of this pandemic we just drop it on the porch and call so that it can be picked up.

From some of the posts in this thread, I'm gleaning that Thumper lives in the Houston area? I have to be in Spring, Tx for several days over the weekend of February 19th and would be happy to deliver some meals that can be frozen, heated, and served.

All willing to contribute financially if the decision is to use a delivery service. Just let me know which you prefer.

Thumper is still in the 1488 and Joseph road area of old magnolia. If tomball is better I can make arguments for anything to get from my wifes shop (Chris used to work there) to his house. From downtown houston to Magnolia is an option as well

I am sorry for delayed response, I have been covered up with PMí and calls.

He lives of 1488 in Hockley, west of 249/1774.

I am working to determine the best route to take, short and long term, while honoring Chrisí wishes.

I will be visiting with him again this afternoon and will keep yíall posted.

Iíd like to say that I am surprised by all the responses but Iím not at all.....

Just spoke with Chris and he reluctantly agreed to a Meal Train.......

I honestly have only been part a few meal trains and they were organized by someone from the Church.

I am reviewing and working through the the link that "makotex" posted (www.mealtrain.com) and will alert y'all when I have it pulled together.

Additionally, I am going to build stand of sorts with a box on it so meals can be placed just outside his entry door to help in his being able to get them into the house.

My cell # is; (2 eight 1) - eight 40 - 0 eight 53, please bare with me as teh call's and PM's are coming in faster than I can respond....
