Farewell Wally....


We are here in "Toon Town" working on the finishing touches for Sarah Mullen's new harp CD and we've just received some very sad news.

Our good friend Danny Lord's workmate, companion and duck Wally passed away last evening of unknown causes. Wally was far more than a "pet", but also a partner, companion and intricate part of Danny's show. I've just spoken to him and he is, understandable quite upset. Our hearts go out to Danny. He did say, though,that he felt lucky that he and Wally were part of "The Lost Princess" ("the Junque scene", "Lost and Found") as now Wally has been immortalized as part of our Rennie world.

Danny's loss and sorrow remind me of really how important pets and "animal friends" are in our lives..How we are enriched by their compassion, loyalty and simple needs.

Wally....may you find beautiful waters, rich foods and fine flocks of friends........

New Year 2006

Happy 2006 everyone! May you all find joys in unexpected places. And may 2006 find your lives richer and full of beauty!

We have a busy year planned ahead for us.

We'll be working on The Lost Princess more - getting the soundtrack out, making a director's cut, possibly creating "The Making Of..." Also, still submitting to a few more film festivals AND working on film project Three - to be filmed in 2006!

On THE LOST PRINCESS front - The Hastings Bookstore in Kingman, Arizona is now carrying "The Lost Princess"! A hearty "Thank You" goes out top them. These people support local authors and filmmakers, so if you're in the Kingman area please support them!

Currently we are creating the final edits and polishing the mixing for Sarah Mullen's new CD - to be released during the Arizona Renaissance Festival.

I (Doug) am here in "Toon Town" working with Jim Hancock and Sarah getting the final tweaks done to her new release. I think her fans are going to love it!

And we are approaching some final recordings of Martha Gay's first solo Harp CD - "Martha's Valentine" - I am personally very excited about this project as well. Many, many fans have been awaiting a CD from this 25 year plus veteran of Cantiga and the Renaissance Festival Circuit!

Well, that's the new news for now. Again, We wish everyone peace and joy!

Be well, Do Good.
