AKA Anna Banana Appreciation Band (ABAB)

The theme is Bananas & Anna Banana.  Many of our members are « bananas » themselves, others are »fruity », a few are « nutty », and one is completely « ape ».
If you are none of these, don’t worry we can help you with specially designed projects and exams for your progress to the banana status you deserve.
We will also explore the many works of Anna Banana as we give appreciation for involvement in Mail Art & "Art".
PS I you are « crackers » or « loony », this group may not be for you.
Also: see link and fill in the form and return it to Anna Banana!

Oh, no, Nancy! your bananas should have specks and brown spots..several brown spots. Not overly ripe, but not green either. And...

never, never, never in the refrigerator!

You all know what Chiquita says:

I'm Chiquita banana

and I've come to say

- Bananas have to ripen in a certain way

- When they are fleck'd with brown and have a golden hue

- Bananas taste the best and are best for you -

You can put them in a salad

- You can put them in a pie-aye, aye, aye

- Any way you want to eat them

- It's impossible to beat them

- But, bananas like the climate

of the very, very tropical equator

- So you should never ever...

put bananas in the refrigerator." ;-)

Two suggestions:

We should have an ABAB session at Mim's Meeting in Paris next month.

For those who can't attend we should ask for mail art contributions that could be incorprated into whatever we come up with.

I'm here to learn. Also, can this group take away any bananas in my house that grow more than one brown spot on the skin? Wait, I consider those garbage and should take this question to the trashpo group.

WOW, Skybridge is a Anna Banana "connoisseur".  Welcome and let's peel a few!

I met Anna in Maastricht last year. She's a Great Lady.

I expect this to be a Great Group.

Long live ABAB!
