It's dependant on your mail client - I don't see your messages as signed
*within the mail client* unless I look at the message source

I only need your key if I want to verify the signature - at the moment
Enigmail doesn't recognise it as signed.
The mail you originally sent was "Content-Type: multipart/alternative;"
with a "text/plain;" segment (your message in plain text format), a
"text/html;" segment (your message in HTML format), a
"application/pgp-signature;" segment (Obvious) and "text/plain;" segment
(the WolvesLUG mailing list signature)
Now, it seems that Enigmail doesn't recognise
"application/pgp-signature;" and so doesn't try and verify the digital
signature. I'm not sure (and at 20 minutes to beer o'clock on a Friday
I'm not going to look it up) which is the correct way for a mail client
to present a digital signature.
Enigmail sends a "text/plain;" message with the signature identified with:
- -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
[ signature goes here ]
- -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
It's a bit sad that 2 different mail clients on essentially the same OS
can't standardise on a single way to sign email (using compatible
