Thanks to Rick and Fro and all you EBers for coming together in the spirit of
community for one of our own. It's been really gratifying to follow this thread
and see the generosity you've all shown.

Makes me proud to be a part of this.

I would like to thank Rick and Fro for all the hard work they put into this (and continue to) for several reasons:

Every time a tube arrives from Dave, it puts a big smile on my face
They are both true collectors and genuine assets to EB
As has been said, being a father, I cant even imagine what Dave is going through emotionally

Please come to Austin sometime guys. It would be my sincere pleasure to put you guys up and show you the town :pint:

Also, a huge thanks to all of you who donated items and bid these items up :clap: :notworthy:

Hate to the be the upside down smiley face but...........

Do NOT recommend gifting the payments - paypal could very notice the influx of gifts and draw attention to Frodawg.

If anything- the high dollar purchasers might want to consider or maybe contribute a little extra to cover PP fees...... :wink:


Rick, the attitude displayed has been, well, an overused word these days but I'll use it anyways.... AMAZING.

The amount of support shown here, by the artists and everybody else donating............... AMAZING.

These are the things that make the world go around

These are the things that make me come back to EB, day after day.

Great art
Even better people

A truly inspiring out-pour of generosity, love, and understanding for Dave and his daughter. :clap:

Rick and Fro, your sincere concern for Dave really set the tone here, and I know it exceeded all of our expectations. You should be very proud of your work.

Your tireless efforts the past few weeks has been very revealing into why little communities like this exist, and we should all be thankful for that.

Drinks on me next time we cross paths! :pint:

Each winner will be notified by Fro or myself on September 2nd, including the Paypal email address to direct your payment to (note that all payments will be a standard “goods” purchase; we will not request or require gift payments). The buyer should state the item number, item name and their EB handle in the Paypal payment notes, using the same Item # and name used when they bid on the item. This will prevent confusion in identifying who has paid for what. Important: Don’t bid if you can’t pay for your winning item within 48 hours of being notified by Fro or me. If an item goes 2 days without payment, the person will be notified via PM that their bid has been dropped, and the next highest bidder will be notified that they have won the item. This is our deadbeat caveat. No apologies to folks who may have been struck by lightning or hit by a meteor. This is a fund raiser, so funds need to be raised.

I think a Paypal "goods" transaction is expected for auction items, based on Rick's early guidance.

Correct. It ensures buyer protection. We wouldn't ask for gift payments.

I always defer to someone who's wearing a beater, regardless of what else he's wearing.
