Delivered successfully by the Royal Mail even though the stamps fell off during its journey. Great Roald Dahl story. Thanks Michael.

John: a hummingbird, the "postbird" of Republik van Patland Postal Service, left heaven today and is on its way to Valley Road.  Pay careful attention to the sky, postbirds usually arrive when no one expect them, mainly when they carry a Celestial Promise.  All the best from the heavenly Republik van Patland.

John- Such fun! I will scan and send the two cards (latest is the candy jars-today). Am I to sign where indicated or is that only for your signiture? I've GOT to buy your book! The stamps of yours are really quite great.

Official Report:  "Yesterday we received a crazy postcard register 33, dated 04Aug coming from Planet Earth.  I do not like it.  It is, by far, better when compared to what our Celestial Mail Art School masters produce". Patland Post Master General

The real report:  Excellent homework!   The stamp is something to write home about. You were able to relate the card to my name Celestial Scribe.  Congratulations.

The Future: The Celestial Oven will be coking something for you soon.  You will notice the arrival of it because one of our "postbirds", a hummingbird will be flying over Newbury.  Let me know when it happens. Caelestis

John! Got  card #38 yesterday. It arrived perhaps 3 days ago. I was in the desert where I have no mail service. Lovely stamps both postal and inked. I love the size of my address next to the magnifying glass. Working on something for you!

Thank you for the friendship! You now have an enthusiastic follower of Brays Life and Art. I became a fan-he indeed was a very unique personality---.....and if he/you would leave some traces in my postbox I´d thank you.

Until soon and you really did a great job in keeping his spirit alive.....Yvonne.
