RJ and Hammy

long time, no post

Hey everyone, I know there hasn't been much happening here, but wanted to at least wish everyone a happy Memorial Day.

I'm thankful for so much in my life right now. Things are not perfect - rising gas prices are causing serious problems with my long commute to work, and other stuff. But this is one beautiful day where I am right now, and if I was to make a list arranged in good/bad columns, I believe the goods would outweigh the bads.

Reach out and receive the blessings God is willing to give you if you just put out your forepaws to receive.

You might remember Santa Fox as our Panelist of Honor last year, and
we're VERY glad to have him working with us now!

This year at our meet we will have more social Functions that will

there are others.

If you want to just hang and chat with folks these functions will be
just for you!

So contact us. While there is still time...

I ask, WHY doesn’t someone do something about this domestic TERRORIST?!?!?!? That is all this man is, but yet the government that claims to be in a war against terror does NOTHING about him. It has not even been 24 hours yet and look what he is already planning:


WBC to Preach at Funerals of Virginia Tech Dead

WBC will preach at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students killed on campus during a shooting rampage April 16, 2007. You describe this as monumental horror, but you know nothing of horror -- yet. Your bloody tyrant Bush says he is 'horrified' by it all. You know nothing of horror -- yet. Your true horror is coming. "They shall also gird themselves with sackloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads" (Eze. 7:18).

Why did this happen, you ask? It's simple. Your military chose to shoot at the servants of God today, and all they got for their effort was terror. Then, the LORD your God sent a crazed madman to shoot at your children. Was God asleep while this took place? Was He on vacation? Of course not. He willed this to happen to punish you for assailing His servants.


Something HAS to be done about this nut job and his followers. He has caused far to much pain to already grieving families already.

We have very special guests joining us in Huntsville for our rocket
ride this year.

Our author guest of honor is none other than the wonderful Mr. Jeff
Goode. Jeff Goode is a director, actor, and the author of over 50
plays, musicals and children's shows, including The Eight: Reindeer
Monologues, the cult serial Larry and the Werewolf, and the
shock-comedy Poona the F***dog and other plays for children. Currently
living in Los Angeles, Jeff has written television pilots for Fox,
UPN, USA Networks, Canal Plus, and two for MTV, including the pilot
for Undressed. For the Disney Channel, he created and executive
produced the animated series American Dragon: Jake Long.

Joining us as our Artist Guests of Honor are Robert & Margaret
Carspecken, who are best known these days for having created the
original "furry" cookbook, Sweet Treats, and for the online comic
strip "Faux Pas." Known mainly for their love of foxes, they currently
live at and work from their seven-acre farm in the Missouri Ozarks
(hence, OzFoxes) and they sell their fox-related artwork both online
and at convention art shows around the world.

Joining us as our fursuiter guest of honor is the wonderful and
talented AnimeCat, a red-haired golden housecat hailing from Little
Rock, Arkansas. By day, she works for the state university hospital,
but by night she is a crazy, rampant artist, bent on ruling the world
through pointless doodles. She is an awarded costumer, having placed
in convention competition around the country, such as Archon, Anime
Weekend Atlanta, MidSouthCon, and Project A-Kon.

And last but most certainly not least, our panelist of honor this year
is the totally awesome Commander Kitsune. One of his professors in
college described him as a jack of all trades, master of none. He was
right on. Commander Kitsune dabbles in audio and visual trades, works
as a computer systems architect, spent 24 years with the military, and
still maintains his "chops" as a musician. He was a panelist at his
first con, teaming up with Fred Ladd on how religion was represented
in anime. Since then, he's been on panels at nearly every con he's
attended and on almost every topic. His favorite type of panel:

All these guests will be riding with you on our spaceflight today. Be

which came first?

Just curious here. Did you know you were furry before you became a Christian, or was it the other way around? Do you feel being furry has helped you in your spiritual walk? Was there a time of personal conflict not knowing how God thought about it?

In my own case, I accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior way back, like the summer between 6th grade and junior high. Then my furry side started to emerge in high school, like around '76.
