Evict Lyme $10 Winners!

Bet you all thought I had forgotten right? That I had decided to just hoard the prizes for myself. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Kidding! Actually, I’ve contacted the winners, I just hadn’t told the rest of you about it. Besides, we’ve all been distracted by Erin’s shenanigans. Which are the best kind of shenanigans because they are for all the right reasons. I know she doesn’t think her outsides are beautiful, but her heart and soul certainly are and that’s what matters.

Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. You guys continue to just blow me away. Without you, Bonnie wouldn’t be able to get the treatment she so desperately needs. You have done a very good thing. A thousand internets to each and every one of you. I wish I could tell you that everything is covered in full, but medical expenses seem to be the gift that keeps on giving and the bills won’t stop for the 3 month recovery period, so if you wanted to give but couldn’t, there will still be a need. And of course, your continued prayers and positive thoughts are always wanted, needed, and appreciated.

And now for the part you’ve been waiting for…

Presented in their original order as listed in the raffle, I give you

Winner of the range bag from Brownells:



The interloper in the house of holsters:

The Steel Rose by Da Tinman


Was won by the very sneaky Keads. Why sneaky? Because he thwarted my plans to stay out of the prize pool.  I emailed to tell him he’d won and I got this in response.

Hi Jennifer! Tell ya what. I’ll take the steel rose and you keep it for your efforts in all of this.

Thank you! That’s awesomely sweet of you.

Steel Dragonfly also by the very talented Da Tinman


Goes to Jannelle.  She’s got the luck with bugs this raffle

And last, but not least b*****s, the 1911 pancake from TheHolsterSite


Goes to Gay Cynic!


Evict Lyme Prize Announcement!! $5 Tier

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Prizes!

I am presenting these listed by winner rather than draw order or prize due to the fact that several people bought multiple chances and therefore won more than one prize.

First up-Janelle! Janelle has won a box set of the Firefly series on DVD (generously donated by Brigid), The Bracelet w/keychain from CobraBraid, her very own copy of The Armed Traveler (You can get your own by following that link. $2 off if you use IJHOK2013 at checkout), and a black and green paracord bracelet made by Squeaky’s main squeeze.

Calli, Scribbler, and John Richardson have each won a black and green paracord bracelet

Davidwhitewolf aka The Guy Who Broke Bonnie’s Nose has won the 50 BMG pen courtesy of RealBullet and a paracord bracelet

Don Gwinn has won both zipperpulls by the lovely and talented Phlegmmy.

Awelowynt, I’m sorry, but you’re getting Lyme Disease. Oh wait! This isn’t the bad kind, this is the cute cuddly kind from Giant Microbes!(Also headed to the care package.) Also, a paracord bracelet.

Lupis42 has won the 50 BMG bottle opener also from RealBullet and a rifle sling from Echo Sling

Everyone’s bratty little sister, Erin Pallette, has a Uterus! A plush one from IHeartGuts (which might just find its way into a certain care package for someone that currently has an angry uterus and could use a snuggly squishy one instead) and two paracord bracelets!

And finally, Wulf Gar has won two paracord bracelets.

Thank you everyone and congratulations! Thanks again to everyone that donated, may the blessings you spread be returned to you ten-fold. Please go check out all the vendors who so generously donated items. They support us; we should support them.

Also, slip over and give your love and support to Bonnie who has had yet another wrench thrown into the process. You know, because if it’s not one thing.

Stay tuned for the announcement of the winners in the $10 tier.





Raffle Update!

The winners in the $5 category should be receiving an email from me this morning. There were 30 tickets drawn. Some people won more than one prize. There will be announcements shortly.

I will hopefully have the $10 winners drawn and emailed by the end of the day.

Thank you again.

Operation Spay Squeaky!

It is not only underway, but it was funded in 36 hours. So Erin stepped up and offered stretch goals.

This is above and beyond her brave offer to post a real picture of herself. Which guys, this is a big deal. She’s really putting herself out there. She’s already come through on the first stretch goal here. And it’s delightful and charming, you should absolutely listen.

The raffle is completed and names will be drawn soon. Would have been done by now, but occasionally, life gets in the way of blogging. Thank you everyone. You’ve done more than help pay for Bonnie’s medical care. You’ve given her the biggest virtual hug and reaffirmed the power of this community. Honestly, I feel all wrapped up in the love, myself. Pat yourselves on the back, internet. You rock!

Evict Lyme: Technical Issues

Well, it seems everyone visiting to get their donations in crashed my blog. That’s what you were doing, right? Right?!?!?

Yeah, you get until midnight 8/1 since the site went down and my host hasn’t confirmed that it is fixed. Obviously, this was out of your control. So you get a reprieve and more time to donate.

Evict Lyme: Last Chance. The Time to Act is Now. Here is Where I Negate Your Excuses

Alright guys. Here we are. Counting down. The time is now.

My beloved robot got on your cases a bit which drummed up some activity. Do I need to call you all b*****s? ‘Cause I will.

But I don’t think I have to. Here’s the one big excuse I’ve heard via email (paraphrased).

But Jen! I really want to donate but I don’t get paid until Friday/The First/Monday!

Pledge a donation of at least $20 before midnight tonight. Fill out the form on this post and put ‘pledge’ and the date you get paid in the confirmation number field. If you have not pledged, you will not be eligible. I will think you are awesome and will thank you for your generosity, but you will not get a prize.

You MUST send me a receipt by the date indicated on your form or you will be disqualified. No excuses. No sob stories. You really do NOT want to try and one up sob stories with me. If you don’t get paid until the 15th, you shoulda donated by July 15th. Pledges are good through Monday only, no exceptions. And you MUST pledge by midnight.

As much as I would like to just keep it going, I can’t. Deadline is a hard one. But you get the benefit of the fact that I was crazy enough to end this at the end of a month without regard to the fact that I’m really freaking busy at month end with the job that pays the bills. So I will not be able to draw names until the weekend. You will not win a prize or even know that your name has been drawn until I have confirmation that you’ve made your donation.

This is more for my benefit than yours. You need yelling?


Oh yeah! I don’t need those little stars. This is my electron empire, dammit!


Evict Lyme – Evyl Robot Edition

Evyl Robot here, hijacking Jennifer’s Head. Look here b*****s, Bonnie hasn’t received nearly enough money for her FUNdraiser so far, and we are looking at a little over 25 hours until it closes. This. Is. Not. Acceptable. My esteemed associate, Dennis, has put up a very nice holster as a prize in this deal, and I happen to have caught up on a bunch of my own holster work. Since we don’t have enough donations, and I have a little more free time, I’m going to put in another custom holster. Feast your hungry little eyes on this:


That’s a black leather 1911 Hidden Stitch Pancake with a red ostrich embossed inlay with an Evyl Robot logo underlay and red stitching.


Feast your eyes I say!


But you can’t have that one. Hahahahahhaa! That one is the one my brother has been wearing for over a year now. I will make a new holster like that one if, and only if the donations turn out significantly higher than at current. As in, three or four times what they currently are. Otherwise, I’m throwing in a plain black Hidden Stitch Pancake holster that fits a five-inch 1911. It’s still a sweet holster, but you don’t get the detail work in that case.

You see as things stand now, I look at the prize packages stacked in my living room, and I look at the funds raised, and I’m disappointed. This isn’t a contest. People are getting a bargain on this loot! It’s time to step up the game. These people and companies have donated some really nice stuff and the entries have not even paid for it yet! They’d be better off if they simply donated the value of their work to Bonnie’s fund. But, it’s not over yet. Please, make this thing worth it. Help out Bonnie and win cool stuff. How can you go wrong?

*Waiting patiently to log additional donations for Bonnie’s FUNdraiser.*
