Band of the Hand (by Iggy)

By -

Ladies, Gentlemen, Slopers and Sloperettes,

I have an important announcement to make.  As many of you are aware, one of our trading family members has been diagnosed with brain cancer.  Tazman is a close personal friend of mine and he's the real deal.  The man we know out here is the same one you meet when you have the pleasure of meeting him and shaking his hand.

I had that distinct pleasure in February when Mrs. Ig and I took a vacation to Orlando and arranged to visit his home.  Thinking back to that visit and what a great time we had as he and his wife hosted us is a fabulous memory and even moreso knowing that not 2 months later he was going to the hospital due to slurred speech.

Here's the scoop… HumbleDukes and I have designed and ordered TAZSTRONG bracelets, similar to those everyone has seen with LIVESTRONG on them.  The link below will take you to a picture of them.  100% of the sale price will go to Taz and his family.  For a mere $10 each, you and your family can show your support of our friend and family member.  They're available in blue and green.  I can't guarantee which color you'll get, but if you order more than one you'll be sure you get a mix of colors.

The easiest way to order will be via PayPal.  I will use the contact information form PayPal to mail out the bracelets ordered.  $10 each, plus a one time $1 fee for shipping no matter how many bracelets you order.

My PayPal info is NC_PEPSI @YAHOO.COM (be sure to remove the spaces)

If you do not have a PayPal account but wish to order, email me at iggyslopefest @ gmail and we'll figure something out.

On a lighter note, one side says TAZSTRONG and the other side says FLAX MAN… the reason for that is that after Taz's first couple of radiation treatments, his trading was on fire, so a group of us put 2 and 2 together, just like Spiderman was bitten by a radioactive spider… Taz must have been benefiting from the effects of his treatments,, so we needed a super hero name for him.  Well, the Russian has him on a vegetarian diet heavy on the flax seed… so we now calll him FLAX MAN.  


Thank you and email me with any questions at iggyslopefest @ gmail
