Limited Print Auction - Bet

Howdy Ho Everybodies!!!!!

Despite the spring mud, winter in May, more spring mud, followed by sleet, some hail, more snow, thaw, mud, snow, thaw, snow, thaw..... sigh... I've been very very busy unpacking the Musher's bags.

Yes, you heard me right, she's infamous about not unpacking all of her stuffs and things when she gets home, so I took some time this weekend to unpack the one hugey huge bag she brought home from Alaska with her... the things I found in there... eeesh.

I have no idea what we're going to do with all of that stuff... but... I did find one really nifty keen, totally awesomely rad, whatchamathingie in the bag of stuffs... and things....

It's this!!!!!

2010 Iditarod Limited Edition "Trail Companions" Van Zyle Print

It's #288!  There's only some of these floating around and we have one of them... and the famously famous Mr. Van Zyle personally gave it to the musher and signed this too!!!  He can really paint, can't he?

Since shipping on a '65 Chevy Malibu engine would be waaaaay too pricey, I made the executive Border Collie decision to auction off the totally cool, really unique, only a limited edition number of these print thingies off, so if you are the highest bidder, #288 will be yours!

It's got mushing dogs (who aren't pretty curly tails, but cool anyway), Iditarod things (and stuff) and in the upper haw corner is a raven!  The Musher likes ravens... she likes them so much she feeds them perfectly good skin and foods... but she doesn't make them shrimp and pasta though.

Anyhoo, I created a link on the bloggity blog upper gee side and there's also a tabby thing at the top of the bloggity blog thing so you can send the Nyquil swigging cartoonist your bid... I'm keeping an eye on them too, so don't worry about her losing stuff.

If you do win it, and want the Musher to sign it, I'm sure she would.  I may even nibble a corner for you if the price is right, and if you are really nice, I'll keep it away from Irving because he tends to piddle on things.
