Like many here, it was with great sadness that I read about the passing of Neil Grant, a.k.a., Tattooneil Ė a man well-known and well-liked in many circles, but especially here in our little corner of the web. I'm proud to have called him my friend.

Sometimes an event like this can really make you think. Iíve spent the better part of this week bemoaning my financial woes Ė Iím behind in this, late with that, not answering my phone, yada yada. I was really feeling sorry for myself. Then, to read about something like this, well, that made me give some thought to how good Iíve got it. I might be in a bit of a cash crunch, but things like medical bills, and the question of how well my family might fare if something were to happen to me . . . thatís all locked in pretty tight and is no cause for concern. Not so for others.

So, my thoughts turned to young Jessica Grant, who on top of her grief, must now bare the additional burden of expense that comes with the loss of a family member. I know there are some here who can dig deep, write that check, and send it off without a second thought, but unfortunately, thatís not me right now.

Still, I wanted to help, so I started to think about how I could. This site is by now very familiar with auctions for a worthy cause, so I hope youíll tolerate one more.

I own one of the original, long-sleeve Captain Skipper Remasters tie-dyed shirts (X-Large), given to me by Skip himself, and I am happy to offer it up here for auction, with all proceeds going to help Jessica Grant with whatever expenses she might be facing at this time.

Itís not new, I admit, but Iíve only worn it four or five times. Itís been washed after each wear, but never put in the dryer, so itís still in pretty good shape, and hasnít shrunk at all.

Hereís the shirt:



And hereís a close-up of the logo so you can see that itís held up quite well:



Now, this isnít a months-long project where we can afford to let the auction run for 10 days, two weeks, etc. Iím assuming Ė and Iíve been there Ė that Ms. Grantís expenses are going to start to mount up pretty fast, so Iíd like to get this wrapped up as efficiently as possible, and get the money to her as quickly as I can.

With that in mind, Iíll run this until Monday evening, 5:00 p.m. CST.

Letís start the bidding at $20.00.

When the auction closes, Iíll work with the winner to see that Jessica receives the funds as expeditiously as possible (I see in the thread dedicated to her dad that she already has a paypal account dedicated to that purpose, so most likely I'll use that).

Thanks in advance for helping me help Jessica Grant.

In parting, this oneís for you, Brother Neil.



I wish nothing but peace for Neil, his family, and all who knew him.

Very cool of you to start this....

For those of you who have a paypal account and wish to donate as well - here's the info:

Neil's daughter Jessica has set up an account to help offset the cost of his final arrangements. A direct paypal link can be found at the top of her myspace page, which is myspace.com/squidlygrant. Any donations will be greatly appreciated.

It most certainly is
but then, that is commonplace in this forum -- kindness -- compassion -- support -- friendship

Nighty-night bump. Even after one day, this looks like it has been a successful venture. Thanks to all who have participated so far.

Peace.

Okay, folks, just about three hours left - if you're going to try to outbid ruthelane, now would be the time to do it.

Peace.

The clock is ticking . . . do I have to pull out the heavy artillery?

Okay, here goes:

Slammer - Bob told me in a PM that there is no way you could keep up with him in a bidding war . . . and he'd like to see you try.

Bob - I polled a bunch of the sweeties earlier in the day, and they were all gushing about how weak in the knees they would get if they had a chance to see you in that Captain Skipper t-shirt.

Lefty - imagine how good Jessica Alba would look waking up next to you wrapped in a Captain Skipper long-sleeve tie-dyed t-shirt. (I can supply the shirt, you'll have to supply Jessica - talk to PeterNelson, I think he knows her).
