LPs – A Different Kind of Record

These LPs are all from people who are handicapped, in one way or another. All are from the 60’s (1 from the 70’s) and all are on private labels. The prevailing maladies seem to be either blindness, dwarfism or lack of limbs.  And almost all are about their relationship with Jesus. Most appear relatively happy and excited to be singing for the lord. This isn’t meant to make fun of the handicapped but to show how amazing it was a few years back when anyone could make their own album, individuals, churches, etc.  Is their a corresponding market today? I doubt it – there doesn’t seem to be many CDs that come close to “No Crippled Girls in Heaven” or “Little Richard Miller – Born Without Arms or Legs – Jesus Use Me”.

  1. I know you don’t know who I am but I will keep it that way because I’m scared of this man. I’m sure you know who he is because he stands out. I meet him threw a friend in Mexico I’m American. My friend who introduced us, asked me if I was still looking for work as a care giver. I said yes of course. Well I started that day he took me to eat. While we got aquatinted. He said he needed someone to help him with his daily routine. He has no arms no legs and rides a scooter. He is very smart can eat on his own can sign his name. I was impressed. He basically needed help washing clothes, making the bed changing linen washing floors toilets folding clothes I would comb his hair and I would help take him a shower. He don’t do no drug or drink but was always offering to buy me some beer I don’t like drinking and especially while I’m at work. Well he paid me 200 pesos for that day and offered me 400 more if I could stay the night he said he wasn’t feeling well. I said ok. I laid on one side with my own blanket and with my clothes on, he told me get comfortable not anything we both have never seen. I ignored and turned to my side. He kept talking saying are u okay. He kept me up all dam night in the morning I came home to shower and I was tired 😫 I fell asleep for awhile when I got up I went back to his house to finish clothes as I walked in I saw a young lady naked giving him oral sex. I said sorry sorry ill go he said no come join I said no no I’m not like that leave me alone he said come here she’s dressed so am I. I said u offended me I don’t think I can do this. He gave her 500 pesos and me 500$ to keep my mouth shut and he uped my pay to 400 for the day and if I stay the night 600$ well after that day I never went because he wanted yo have intercourse for 1000$ u.s dollars I have been getting stalked and harassing letters ever since please be careful with this man he thinks he can get away with it cause he’s disabled and has money.
