I get to manage my OWN AUCTION! Right on! I got one bidder so far. Easy to manage. I got $50 bid on this agate. I guess I will run it till Monday the 18th. Then I will send it to the bidder that wins. Money should be sent to Mike's PayPal account:
Ok. So you can donate directly to me by going http://www.paypal.com/ and going to the send money link.

My email is m_cowper@yahoo.com

To summarize my current understanding of things:

I've got a slight lead on Jim Brennan on Philos painting at 170$, unless I missed something.


Kid Cournier has edged the Dic with a bid of 160$ for my print.

This just in won his own boots and donated the 120 for them. For his generosity he will be receiving lots of prints when I get my butt home to whistler!!
Cmac's books went today and Harry was the lucky winner!! 329 dollars was the final total.Thanks to both of you! I hope Chris likes my pics, because he will receiving a boatload of them when I get home!!

Kunlun Shan also made a nice purchase of a Philo toon, and is sending me a book! Very stoked about that!

Philo has been very generous and will surely be receiving lots of
Prints once all his items sell.

Still no word on the bk closing... But looks as if it's been finalized. Who knows?!

Harry word is you still need a belayer for that wall!! I think I can jumar still depending on the timing ;) i must respect my healing time, so the fantasy may not quite be a reality...

hey there say, big mike!

say, thinks are going very well, great to hear this... your gift and the the tiny one inside for sandra, is now on its way... my friend got it sent...

sorry it is a bit late, :))
and keep up the good work at walking, i just saw the pic, the other night,
and man oh man: you ARE tall, ;) (my dad is tall, too, 6 feet 2? inches?)

was soooo happy, to see sandra reply on the facebook to all this:
dreams come true, :)


well, say, now, as to the auction here:

since all is going so well here... and the egret had not gotten any bids, so won't be needed, i have this gut-feeling to send it to my mom...
for easter--happy spring thing, for her...
she is in her 80's and does not
get out onto the trail to SEE these anymore...
edit: far as i know her health is okay, but her knee is very
bad, :( and she has to take care, as to them older bones, too, :))

she has a soft spot in her heart for egrets and we have many precious sightings together, as to these... and, have a whole new crop to paint here
and will have no room to put these... (don't want them in the basement, though perhaps, i could set-up a special spot, later)...


so as of now, the egret is off to a new home...
WILL be flying out tonight...

thank you for understanding... :)
the heart offer is still here, if you need anything though, :)

Didn't even have to pay shipping! Look forward to your prints mike, have always loved your photography, I'm thinking the b&w with color ones. Hoping you get back to Whistler soon.

Auction has closed on

The University Wall piton (high bid $250). High bidder gets a special bonus item, too.

The signed Dick Culbert guide closed at $300. High bidder gets the bonus of the ORIGINAL maps that accompanied the book and almost always got lost.

Thanks to all!

Dic - I think you are the lucky - and most generous - winner of one BK limited edition dinner place matt - er, I mean dazzling one of a kind picture of random mountains! Shoot me an address or if you live near by pop on over to collect. We will discuss details of the hat and shorts addendums then.

Sorry Kid - if you don't mind, could you also call me / stop by so you can transport to mike a cheque and print for Mike / sandra.

Philo - did i win yet?


PM me various people - I'm leaving town shortly and would like to wrap up business asap.
