"If trashpo has taught me anything its that every windblown street corner and cyclone fence is a veritable Dick Blick of free art materials."

Thanks, DK. I just re-created my post and sent it to RC, and when I did I realized that he moderates his own wall and had not posted my comment there. So now he has my response twice. LOL! I'm glad it wasn't all a dream.

I think your mail man is in love.

Ho boy I think I am losing my grip. RC left a message on my page asking me why I like and ride horses. I wrote a lengthy reply, but I accidentally posted it here in the TrashPo group page. I then thought perhaps RC might not see my response, so I carefully copied it and pasted it up on his page. Now, this morning, I notice that there is no comment from me here in the DKULT world, nor is there on on RC's page. Sooooo, I apparently dreamed the whole thing....and it was such a brilliant comment. Sheesh, guess I'll head on over to RC's page and try again. Good morning KULTsters!

Petrol==so nice that your postman got you a new box. what language does he/she speak? And I agree Martha==whether we jam up their machines or not, they should be greatful for us because we probably send more mail out than 80 percent of the population! The  mailman that used to have this route, was so well known in this neighborhood. When he told some of the women they cried. He is a sweet charming Brazillian man and I think many of them were in love with him.  For my housebound friend that was definately the case. The only man she sees for days

Comment by DKULT on Thursday

Richard Canard's post led me to interview a friend of mine who worked for the post office for many years.  DeVillo was kind enough to edit, what was originally a mishmash of unformatted chat  I can not identify my source, by the Mail Art Deep Throat was very gratious to answer my burning questions!!
