Jailbird JD

Another dentist sent this cake over. It has a real hacksaw baked into it. Funny!

Me trying to save JD as he is cuffed and "arrested" by a Longview fireman and taken to "jail."

JD was approached by the Muscular Dystrophy Association to be a "jailbird" for the day. They come get business leaders, take them to a restaurant and ask them to get enough donations for the MDA then they are finally released after they make "bail." Since MD is a huge part of my family's life (my mother, sister and brother--as well as multiple extended members--all have the disease), it was a good opportunity for us to help the MDA raise some money for local patients.

On Thursday, they came and took JD from work during lunch and brought him to the Red Lobster restaurant. I just happened to be there when the local firemen came to "arrest" him.

Overall, it was a great experience for him. He raised nearly $1,800.00 with donations from friends, family and business associates.

I'll post the official MDA jailhouse photos when I get them.
