""La Scalinata Mark J. Sandman, Giardini Del Principe, Palestrina, Italy - is a staircase named in his honor. There is a stone tablet with his name at the first stair-step of the stairway." Yeah, I guess you're right. "

Thanks for letting me know, David. I have not yet come up with any fitting name for the print I sent you. If you have suggestions they are very welcome, but no worries...

Hi David, I received your marvelous mail art!  I have blogged it here http://iuoma-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/barbie-themed-mail-art-from-j-block-betha-greschak-and-david?xg_source=activity and will put it on the postal ledger later today (hopefully). Thanks!

Sure did - love it; you got the spooky-estate agent speak spot on. 

And I've got to say I did like that green and yellow striped stripy goose (no resemblance though).

I have it on good authority (Suus, Amy, Richard C. and Katerina) that you are the maker of the (unsigned) poltergeist m-a. Are they right???

Thanks for the amazing mail art. It has us all in stiches; in particular my thirteen year old who loves origami.

Just got your card- thank you!  I've been out of the loop so long I've moved twice.  All is updated now.  Sorry I've fallen off the planet, I'm managing two galleries in NOLA and life is joyfully chaotic.  I appreciate you thinking of me!
