20 years ago I came upon a stash of Time Magazines circa 1952. These have followed me around long enough. If anyone wants them and is willing to pay the shipping I'll send them to a good home. (in…Continue

"Thank you, Heide. And DeVillo and Nancy and Katerina. I'm just going to issue a blanket thank you to all who are sending mail to my mom. I'm looking forward to her reaction which will be heavily documented. I think a video may be in order."

"I'm loving the words "spectacles" and "splendor," DVS, but Dave's "home run" and "War and Peace" megablog humbles all the rest of us, and rightfully so. And oh, the pressure!"

De Villo Sloan commented on David Stafford's blog post MEGABLOG: THE FINAL CHAPTER
"I believe there has been a consensus that Nancy Bell Scott's "Blogjams" were the definitive epics (spectacles) of mail art documentation splendor. NBS is forever in our hearts. But David has hit the home run, grabbed the brass ring,…"

Nancy Bell Scott commented on David Stafford's blog post MEGABLOG: THE FINAL CHAPTER
"MEGABLOG is no exaggeration, Dave. It must be a new category, and your fine record will stand. Maybe not 102 years, but still. Like Gina, I'm on it for m.a. to your incredible mother. Something lettuce-like is on its way to you shortly, too,…"

"That's what I thought. Better safe than sorry. And yes, my mom is a miracle who deserves better mail than postcards from realtors with sharkish teeth and smarmy smiles."

MEGABLOG: THE FINAL CHAPTER

As some of you know, I have been in California every other month for the past three months. (More on that later) That means I received lots of mail art which I haven't been able to get to for a while. This megablog, with an emphasis on brevity, is meant to address that and catch up with all the good stuff you've been…See More

"They stopped making them this year. Sigh....another piece of our past erased. Interior decorators say it will be more difficult to assign colors without the complicated and edible Necco system at our disposal.'"

HB, Dave. I'm seeking the assisted-living-porch rocking chair tho maybe in 20 yrs. A lettuce m-a headed your way soon. Too late, as the romaine alarm has been called off. Iceberg lettuce also made a comeback in 1987, by the way.

David, I'm so mad at myself for missing your latest vintage magazine giveaway! If you have any more lying about I'd be happy to send you some postage $$$
