About Me

I am a fulltime chaperone to an aging pit-bull. She loves pigs-ears purchased from Stewerts Meat Market, long walks anywhere, feeding time and tummy rubs. We both enjoy disc golf, (golf with baskets instead of holes and fancy frisbees instead of golf balls), but for entirely different reasons. Fortunately for all she never acquired a taste for frisbees but she is a sucker for thrown rope-toys and balls. Her goal in life is to see an end to the nuisance that causes some toys to squeak when pressed by her chaperone. After the squeak has been eliminated, the toy is safe to be played with by anyone else because regardless of price it holds no further interest for her. Lastly: that is my real last name! I can get away with calling myself a card carrying chick and often get a chuckle out of folks when I do that.

Questions about poverty level friend and ACA

My apologies for the hit and run but I am without easy access to the internets, this being through a friends computer. I will post this then return in a couple of hours to see what help my fellow DUers may have responded with.

My friend is somewhat self employed, he makes less than $9000 a year, he is mid 50s in age, his eyesight is horrible. My question is regarding his need for glasses. Can he qualify for anything that will help him get glasses? My second question is what does he have to pay, (if anything) for participating in the ACA. Sorry for my ignorance and thank you for all who have a response.
(btw: I sincerely miss this place and hope to be back in the fight with ya real soon!)

Thank You to all who responded. In response to an oft asked question we live in Washington State. There is enough material to get me started on the road to getting my friend those much needed glasses for cheap-reasonable price. My apologies for not thanking each of you personally, this is a friends computer and i am only here briefly. Keep fighting the good fight DUers!
