Very strange....
The opening for This is Just Mail Art was really wonderful. We had a great turnout and a wonderful evening. So, I got home way past my bedtime and at least one glass of cheap champagne over my limit. First thing I did was check the pix I'd taken. Not many of them, but some goodies. I then carried my camera up to my office, took out the memory card to upload the pix to my computer, decided it was way too late to be messing with that, and went to bed.

Then, yesterday morning I decided to post the pix. Hmmm. Well the memory card has fallen into a black hole somewhere. Not in the camera, not in my card reader, not in my pockets, not on my desk. In fact, it is nowhere. A serious mystery. Hope it shows up soon. Meanwhile, I will be taking installation shots later this week or next week.

One of the high points of the evening was chatting with Mim Golub Scalin, one of the two people whose fault it is that I am in mail art!. One of the pictures on my lost memory card is Mim posing in front of a personal note from Richard Canard to her sent to me specifically for her to find at this show.

Dan--great poster--I recognize a R. Guyver, and is that an Amy Irwen in the mix? Nice selection of the variety to be found in mail art, and so colorful. The 'gone Postal' boekie is spectacular!

Two long days have gone into hanging the show at artspace gallery. I will finish up the last of it this afternoon and evening. Tomorrow is our opening reception. I do wish everyone who participated could be there. I will take lots of pix of the opening and of the installation.

The *** means you are special, Mim! Hehehe. Actually it was there as a reminder for me to taky your card off my wall and put it in the bix to go to te gallery. Hope to see you there.
I'd love to see Mim Granland here to, but Ithink she luves in te middle of te ocean halfway between Virginia and Finland.

Yeah, it's funny how names get scrambled. It's happened before. I sort of like the DaDa of it! I'm ***Golub, and Mim Granlund is a newly created person. Maybe that could be a Nom de something for me.
