Scrapple Eye Fund  
I have been very pleased & touched by the number of people who have responded to Scrapple's predicament. Hopefully we'll be able to schedule surgery sometime this month (although part of me doesn't want to jinx it by being too optimisitic). As for Scrapple, he is adjusting fairly quickly--he's sleeping a lot during the day, but his appetite is good, his bowels are working, and he still wants to play with his ball, and at night he gets feisty and wants to play with his tug-toys. Tommy & I are probably more freaked out about the goop-filed blister growing out of his eye than he is.

As I continue digging through my closets looking for extra books & comics for sale, I keep stumbling over stuff I forgot I had--like extra back issues of SWAMP THING and the comic book version of SUNGLASSES AFTER DARK. I'll post a list of what I have ASAP--as I still have to do my taxes before the 15th. But here is the recent updated inventory of books available for a $15 donation via Paypal account nancycollins229@comcast.net. If you don't have a Paypal account but still want to donate/buy something, direct all inquiries to sonjablue313@yahoo.com.

For people worrying about whether this is a spam/scam--Scrapple & I are very real. I've posted here a few times over the last year. Scrapple is the son of RJ's Duff Stuff (aka "Dusty"), who was a breed champion back in the day, and a descendant of El-Bo's Showman, Rudy Is A Dandy, and Zodiac War Witch. I've been a professional writer for the last 15 years, but it's a tenuous lifestyle, as I get paid about 3 times a year, if I'm lucky. Scrapple's friends/admirers have included the likes of Iggy Pop, Neil Gaiman, GWAR, Howard Kaylan, Ghoultown/Maltoro, and Andrew Vachss.
