FINALLY...we have what y'all have been asking for...black (and/or dark color) shirts. And what better to go on those shirts but some new killer retro neon RAOB logos. In addition, we added some brand new images to the D&K line of merchandise with some terrific new Dixieland Yankee logos.
Yep, the Academy Munchkin Artists Michelle and Evil J have been busy, busy, busy. BIG THANKS to them both.
Also, newly added are sub-shops with Hall of Fame and 411 logo merchandise. Plus we added pastel color ringer shirts and hooded sweatshirts.
Oh and don't worry, we did keep some of the old favorites...classic RAOB logo items, Merpupwear, and, the currently popular, Planet Xena merchandise.
C'mon in and peruse the racks.

Linda Crist's next three stories in the Between the Lines Series:
I'm back - short one paw but here...
I've got thousands of emails to check... and many more personal good wishes to reply to than I ever thought possible... if you've sent a personal email to me I will reply... just give me a day or so to get round to you all
I've had two plates put in my shoulder - which has repositioned the collar bone - and now it isn't sticking through the muscle and cutting into the nerves I'm not in screaming agony any more - it's down to a bearable ache. Thw doc had to remove two nerves which had been shredded by broken bone so I have a patch of shoulder that will be forever numb now... good place for a new tattoo yeah??..
They got the bone chips out of my chest wall... unfortunately they couldn't save the rib they came from so I lost that. Which of course means that I only have 2 cracked ribs to deal with now.... hey... gotta look on the bright side right??
I am not allowed to use that arm at all for a month - and then it will need 3 months of gentle physio after that - so I'm out of work for 4 months...
which brings me to my next point... the auction/donation site...
I'm absolutely, totally gobsmacked...
I will be thanking personally as many people as I can who have donated stuff for it... and the fantastic friends who set it up
But... how the F%$& do you say thank you for that??
How do you thank all the xenites who have been so generous?? How do you thank the readers who like my stuff enough to care?? How do you thank the writers who consider me one of their own??
How do you thank all the folks you always held in high esteem, who you regarded as friends without ever thinking they felt the same about you.... who have done so much... . who have demonstrated that friendship runs both ways.... how do you say thank you for this... not just for the material things but thank you for your friendship... thank you for caring
How the hell do you ever say thank you for all this??
I have no idea.... I don't even know where to start
I guess I just start here... like this.... and say

Hello, guys! Thank you all so much for your support in our endeavor with ASP Films. Some huge things are happening right now, but I can't go into it just yet, cause nothing legal has been signed. All I can say is I met a producer last year at BardCon, and thank the gods I did. : )

L.T. Smith has signed Beginnings to be available Summer 2007.

Added part 2 of Birdie's Song by Onesockbard
Because we're all about the love, and since we can't all hop on a jet plane to have sex with a Certain Someone to put a smile on her face after some wanker totaled out her beloved Triumph (as well as trashing her shoulder and other rather necessary parts of her anatomy), we're doing what we can do: Trading off some really cool stuff for some bits of colored paper (aka "money") to lend a helping hand to a woman who'd be first in this line to help out another.
Bid high, bid frequently, bid against your friends and neighbors... Heck, even bid against yourself, 'cause you know you want some of this hot stuff!
Let's prove that if some wanker knocks down one of our own, legions of us will put her back on her feet!
In this family, we stand up for our own. Take that, wanker!
Auctions will start 10/29/2006 and end 11/05/2006 at 7:00pm US CST. Paypal cash donations will end 11/12/2006 at 7:00pm US CST.
Please include Zero's name in the subject line of all emails.
When the auction opens, this link will be active. http://www.djordanredhawk.net/auction
If you have any questions, please contact Vicki Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will work with the parties in question to get the answers.
