Holidays, holidays, holidays!

Pay attention class! You have homework while I'm away. Your assignment - read my first book. There will be a test when I get back.

C T Chew, Seattle, WA, USA

Wow, a wonderful page of Homage Stamps by C T. I especially like Mona in the straightjacket, many thanks.

C. T. Chew, Seattle, WA, USA

I looked at the envelope and what did I see? I saw Carl's face looking back at me! Uncle Carl wants you - to send him mail.

Ruud Janssen, Breda, Netherlands

A nice Thank You from Ruud for a copy of my one-and-only rubber stamp.

Test Tower, Centralia, WA, USA

"It's a beautiful day in the neighbourhood..." weather chatting, the Pacific NW rarely sees thunder and lightning so it becomes a big event. Thanks Tex for the HeeBeeJeeBeeLand mail.

Test Tower, Centralia, WA, USA

Yes, it's true, the extravagance of Saturday mail delivery. Dream on Tex, Canada is talking about a 3 day week.

Silvano Pertone, Genoa, Italy

Silvano has a new call - his beautiful hometown, Genoa. He says my new lucky number is 31.
Grazie mille Silvano and, yes, there will be a new call but first I have to have a vacation.

Gianni Simone, Yokohama, Japan

Thanks Gianni for the documentation catalogue.

Kaz Murakami, Hyogo, Japan

I had asked Kaz what the wrapped stones meant and he sent me this excellent explanation. It is a polite way of saying "Do Not Enter". 

Kaz Murakami, Hyogo, Japan

A nice chicken pic from Japan. Thanks Kaz

Perry Hoffman, Wonder Valley, CA, USA

Sigh, California. Perry gives mosaic workshops if you're out that way.

Jonathan Stangroom, Somerville, MA, USA

Jonathan has been collecting coins. I have always wondered if his last name is pronounced Stang-room or Stan-groom.

Andy Hoang is travelling

This is an Add and Pass that Andy and I have had going for a few years, nice to see it again.
Andy is on a voyage of self discovery and he wants you to keep in touch at

Thank you for your patience, my flatbed scanner wasn't working.

Have model, will pose. Bet you thought it wasn't wearable. When you get your documentation you will see that she can even run in it. A picture of  C.C. Six is ready for Lucinda Kartography, finders keepers. Thank you everyone for your contributions and to Samantha Jang for posing.

Pedro Bericat, Zaragoza, Spain

Just when you think you will never hear back - you get a little gem in the mail. Sixteen people sent in one minute of sound by email and Pedro made a teeny-tiny CD for all of us.

Pedro Bericat, Zaragoza, Spain

A rubber 45 and a mini-CD of sound that sounds great. Gracias for the interesting mail.

Dr Anna Freud Banana, Roberts Creek, BC, Canada

Pleased as punch to receive my latest banana-by-mail newsletter.

D D Post, from somewhere in the U S of A

Quack, quack, we are amused. A fine collection of old Donalds. Thank you Mr Post

D C Spaulding, Lomita, CA, USA

It's a jungle out there. The sun is shining and D C is wearing his sun shades. He is out for a day of jumping with his pets. "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noon-day sun" so too Americans and bunnies.

Susan McAllister, Berkeley, CA, USA

I see two women talking and one listening. I think they live in Sponge-Bob-Land. Thanks Susan
