Greetings, Fike. Yes, I've been with IUOMA for years — still prefer real mail, though.

Good to be back in touch since the old days when I was in Huntington! Keep watching the mail--I predict something coming your way...

Sorry but you can't join the Groucho Marx Group. This is nothing personal, as no-one can join the Group. That's what Groucho wanted, and that's what happens. There are lots of other Groups though....

Happy Birthday, Ficus!

I have a blog???!

Posted on July 14, 2018 at 12:34pm 0 Comments

I guess I do. Or at least, that's wot the clicky-button said on the previous page. from which [by clicking] 'I' got 'here'. [virtually].

Currently [re]reading all of William Gibson, at least the novels and a wonderful read he is! Taking a break with Thomas M. Disch's "334" over these past few nites, charging up the ol' memory B4 lites out each eve. Richard Brautigan awaits also.

Soon we start ripping out the floor of the computer 'den' at strangulensis Manor.

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.

So you like fractals, eh?
