Just to clarify any possible confusion, it was the late Randy Hunt who was "fourgator." The late Randy Wagner and his wife (now widow) ran Cargo Bay Emblems (formerly Eagle One Aerospace).

Randy Wagner was my friend and an honest guy; Randy Hunt had an attitude problem and was unfortunately unethical.

A new favorite (if it can be called that - for entertainment value only) moon conspiracy theory that popped up online - someone decided that the McCall-drafted designs showing Stonehenge were submitted by Schmitt himself, presumably post-flight if this theory is to work, and show alien structures on the moon that Schmitt saw. I'm guessing they are not aware of symbolism - perhaps we will see future theories of live eagles and horses along with flying sailships and flying astronaut pins journeying to the moon on other Apollo missions to examine the enormous X the Apollo 10 crew spotted... certainly the Apollo mission patches reveal plenty of "evidence"...

Well, that's easy, at least for Apollo 10. The 'X' on the moon is the same monolith that astronauts saw in 2001 - what people thought was a science-fiction film was a documentary that was thinly disguised by Arthur C. Clarke. (After all, Clarke was exiled to Sri Lanka by the CIA.)

The Apollo 10 crew used an X not standing for the Roman numeral for '10', but because X stands for an unknown. Add to it that the Apollo 10 crew was the only crew to have two of its members to go back and walk on the moon (for further investigation) - Stafford originally was going to walk on the moon, but was switched to Apollo-Soyuz to maintain the conspiracy with the Russians.

(**Note: The preceeding was for entertainment value only.**)

I'm reminded at the time of the later Apollo missions there was a strip cartoon in the Daily Express here in the UK. Their astronaut, Jeff Hawke, found on the Moon a human-type skull. Did the owner build the monolith I wonder?

PS - everyone who is anybody knows that Stonehenge was to be the first UK Hilton but they ran out of money having only got the door frames and lintels up.

Is there a market for fantasy patches? I have been working on a design for a 4" patch that I am considering investing the amount to make a limited edition 50 patch run (not coincidentally the minimum amount most manufacturers will produce). To cover my expenses I figure the sell price will be around $7-12 a piece, shipped. If the design and the subject is of interest are there people who are interested in adding such a patch to their collection?

I hope to use 8 colors, 4" with hallmarks to indicate it is a non-commercial product (and identify the first run batch).

I am still having a few people review the design, but if I can raise the cash and get feel for interest, I will probably drop the hammer.
