You may or may not know that i have recently adopted a dog (pictured below) called Annabel from a local Dog Rescue Centre called just for dogs (http://justfordogs.org/) which is a registered charity. Annabel brought so much happiness to my life and that of my girlfriend too, she is such a great tempered fun loving dog who just lives for someone scratching her belly. And i owe having her happy soul in the house to just for dogs, now they aren't in the best financial state at the moment so i though i would help out a little bit and say thank you for giving Annabel a second start in life!

Later on tonight ( after i have uploaded pics) i will have a slipcased , numbered out of 200, remarqued copy of Joe Hill's Gunpowder for sale with 100% of the sale going to just for dogs. Vinnie Chong has once again out done himself and has come up with a remarque that is very different than all the others i have seen, depicting a never before illustrated part of the story.

I would put the book on ebay but don't want them taking any of the money that can help the charity! So i will be accepting best offers via pm or email - dip_dab@hotmail.co.uk until midnight GMT Saturday and will include free postage to anywhere in the world, so please keep this in mind if you are considering a bid.
Muchos thanks in advance!

That's really kind of you! Hope it sells for a nice sum! Good luck! :)

Btw (off-topic) - a little graphic overhaul for the forum I see.:) (the quick reply box is different, and it autosaves) Nice Dan! :)
