Thanks Ivor!

3. Here's a Fan alert post form the A-team Newsgroup! [email protected] (FLUTTERROC) wrote:
"Mr T was really cool. He was so energetic and looks as good as new! I got my picture taken and he signed both of my scipts that I took with me. It was awesome because people here were walking by and saw him and they would run to buy a camera to take pictures. Kids would show up and know exactly who he was it was awesome. So your all wondering what he said about the A-Team movie.............should I say anything? ok, ok I will. When I got up there I asked and he said that he knows about the movie and he and the other guys are fighting Cannell to keep them in there respective roles and that is why the movie is still in development without anyone cast yet. It seems they may get their way!! Someone asked him who he liked working with the most and he said everyone because they were a team, but then said he would have to pick Dwight because they had a lot of fun together on the set."

If anyone has any more A-team news, I'll be glad to put it in this Newsletter with your name.

***Fanfiction of the Month
Here is Part 1 of a story sent to me from Elizabeth Hensley. If you like this, you can go to her site and read more of her fanfiction. Go here for her fic:: http://www.gigglesfromheaven.org

The Tardis Incident :: Part One Written by Elizabeth Hensley and Tina Vogt

"l don't know about you, George, but as far as I'm concerned, one machine gun bullet can wreck my whole day!" Murdock studied their current situation with the detached calm of an ivory tower philosopher.

"Quit talkin to that invisible dragon, fool, and start fightin!" B.A. wasn't too happy about the recent turn of events. Not only was he now trapped underneath his beloved van-which was in danger of getting bullet holes in its side again-but that fool Murdock had cast forth from his demented brain this ENORMOUS long eye lashed lavender dragon!

Not to mention that dog of his, Billy. Billy always seemed to be underfoot even though he wasn't really there!

"Oh, come on, B.A.," Murdock protested. "She's sensitive in her present condition. Pregnancy isn't easy on a dragon, you know!"

"Fool, there ain't no dragons!"

"Wrowwwwwwwwwwl!" George gave B.A. a sad look.

Murdock patted her huge sides. "Easy, old girl! Come on now. B.A. doesn't mean to hurt your feelings!'' To B.A. he pleaded, "Ah, be nice to her! I tried to tell her she doesn't exist, but she won't listen to me. She insists she's real."

"Wrowwwwwwl!" George happily thumped the van with her tail in solid agreement. She bent down and gave Murdock a wet, slurpy lick with her rough pink tongue. Murdock blushed and started giggling. "Hey, stop that!"

B.A. started to pounce on Murdock. Murdock backed away from the big black man, wiggling further underneath the van. "Hey, B.A., have a heart Don't you realize how important George is? Dragons are way up there on the endangered species list, right up there with dodos and dinosaurs. You can go look it up yourself! And George is pregnant! Just think. They used to be everywhere, and then the food supply ran out and they had to start eatin young maidens 'cause there were no big food animals left. Man has moved in on their territory, and they started to have to live in dark cold, damp caves instead of out in flower-filled fields in the happy sunlight the way they were meant to because knights kept spearing 'em. B.A. How would you like to live in a cold, damp, dark, dingy cave?"

B.A. had had just about enough. "Fool! There ain't no dragons!!"

Murdock stuck his tongue out at B.A. "Hmmmmmmmf. A lot you know!"

Suddenly Decker's troops gave off another round of fire and both the schizophrenic and the Afro-American warrior crouched together, united by their common foe.

Hannibal surveyed the latest fighting amongst his ranks. "B.A., lay off of Murdock, okay? His dragon isn't hurting you."

"And neither is Billy!" Murdock stuck his tongue out at B.A. again.

The Faceman gave B.A. a wink. "At least George and Billy don't snore."

"Oh yes, they do." Murdock sighed.

"I don't snore!" B.A. growled.

"Oh yes, you do!" Hannibal, Templeton, and Murdock said it together.

They all crouched further beneath the van. Hannibal took his cigar out of his mouth. "Murdock, I don't want to make you feel unwelcome here, but why don't you get George and Billy and yourself out of here? Keep the van between yourself and Decker. He doesn't know you're out of your hospital room and that may work to our advantage. If he catches us, you may have to rescue us again."

>From his cramped position, Murdock did the best he could to salute. "Aye, aye, sir!" He crawled on all fours, his butt sticking up in the air, out from underneath the van and between a cluster of cars.

A bullet hit a red station wagon right behind him. Boy, was the owner going to be mad!

Decker had to be crazier than he was, shooting at the A-Team in the middle of an intercity mall parking garage.

George and Billy crept, their butts sticking up in the air right behind him.. "Mumble mumble grumble grumble!" Murdock complained to himself. There! That made him feel better. Blast B.A. and his inability to see dragons and things! That big old teddy bear needed to learn to see with his heart and not just his head.

Murdock made himself comfortable underneath a Volkswagen Rabbit and lay down, arms crossed behind his head. George settled beside him and started nuzzling his ear. Billy lay on top of his chest, somehow miraculously squeezing between Murdock's chest and the bottom of the car. Murdock felt very comfortable there, very secure. What did it matter it Decker was after everybody? He couldn t hurt the A-team. they were invincible!

Suddenly a strange humming noise attracted Murdock's attention. He wiggled free from Billy's affections and peered out from underneath the car. There was a Greek pillar parked between a brown 1973 Oldsmobile and a 1974 Volvo! Murdock didn't even bother to blink or rub his eyes. He'd seen things like that before. Transitory, usually. Only animals and voices stayed with him for long. They were more fun.

Sure enough, the pillar disappeared along with the strange humming noise. Murdock giggled to himself nervously. He gave Billy a hug and patted his dragon. "I wonder what's next, fellows? I really need to be on a higher dosage of my little orange and white capsules." Sure enough, "next" came.

A large blue box suddenly materialized in the parking garage right where the pillar had been.

Murdock frowned thoughtfully. 'Sounds different this time. This one sounds like it's got a congested something or 'nother.

Billy ran out from under the car and started sniffing at the box. Suddenly the fur went up on the back of the little figment's neck and he started growling.

Murdock stared at him, puzzled. "What's a matter, boy? It's just an ordinary hallucination, nothing to get excited about."

"Boooooof!" Billy seemed most upset!

Stay tuned next month for Part two!! :)
