Please, I hope everyone will join me and Richard in a lengthy Hearty Guffaw!
I'm sure Richard never suspected he'd need to send instructions for his brilliant art piece, but he doesn't know me very well. My Asperger tendencies make me take the world way too literally many times, though at my age I've tried to teach myself where to look to avoid most blatant errors. I wanted very much to remove the tape to see what was on the other side, but there was so much of it, I judged in error that he must have meant to have it there permanently. {sheepish smile}
Now, Wow! I totally LOVE the collage Richard built and sent to me. I am no longer speechless; this art is wonderful and cleverly creative. Thank you very much Richard. Should my vacationing muse return from her hiatus, I will of course see about making another nerd Trashpo creation for all of our shared entertainment.

My not too long awaited mail from Richard Canard arrived. When I posted my "Nerd Trashpo" piece here not too long ago, he felt challenged to produce for me a piece of nerd Trashpo using a piece of the very same Blue Kroger Kleenex box I had used, but he cautioned me to not expect too much so as not to be disappointed in my expectations. And so, upon receiving his piece I have declared that Richard wins the nerd-off. This is, by far, the nerdiest thing I will ever see. I presume the "blue patterned decorative Kroger tissue (Kleenex) box cardboard" was used in this, though turned the other way? Seeing this piece of art has rendered me speechless for any coherent description, but I do appreciate it very much on some unfathomable level of my being, which is for the best, as descriptions are so defining and tend to freeze any hope of randomity in life. Also received in the same envelope were 7 sheets of old xerox copies of mailings from years ago, some as old as 40 years. Thank you Richard for the rich experience of opening an envelope from you. I will treasure the memory of the first few moments after I opened your mail for an extremely long time.

I'm glad it arrived Biggie-I'm not sure I mentioned the effect that the red moon/lunar eclipse could have on the bolt tightness, but since you are posting this, I can safely assume that all went according to plan. Can you please let me know when the next phase will be ready?
