"OMG Jim, you're the 101st person on my IUOMA "friends" list.* I've tried very hard to keep it at 100 or below, but I couldn't say no to you and there's nobody on that list that I want to nix [today] . . . I've…"
"Hey Toni, glad to know that both postcards made their way over to you. I love seeing the end results of these pieces and how they fared through the mail. The fly seems to have picked-up some incidentals on its trip; I'd expect nothing less from…"
"Define "obscene." Such a subjective subject. Of course there's the usual, anti-social deviations of violent acts [nobody wants to see that malarkey. Sexual interaction between two, or more, consenting adults is fine, right? I guess it…"
"Jim, subliminally political content. Hit 'em where it counts, in the subconscious.
Sorry Chris, but I had to put it out there . . . no one will know until the crowds run rampant in the streets after opening night. No, not really. (yes Jim…"

Hi Keith--I was so delighted to receive the "Celebrating Orange" mail art. Such a wonderful assemblage--from the snazzy orange envelope, the carrot floating in a non-aquarium dream sequence, to the non-hippurus/dolphinfish stamps. Love the engraved look of the images. Awesome!!! They will be posted soon.
Dear Keith, I am enchanted by the beautiful mail art you've sent me. The stamps are just marvellous and the printing quality is exquisite! I loved the small stamp collage as well. Thank you so much! Here is a blogpost I made about it.
19.10.17 Dare Ms. Angie Cope & Mister Keith Chambers, ... absolutely amazing! ..."Informed Delivery" via the USPS. ...50, 20, or 10 years ago just pure fantasy thinking. ...but where does it all end with such technology ??? Will the Russians know what's in your mailbox & who sent it what, when & why ? I am still yet irked at the rising price of a postcard. It cost me 38 cents for a 35 cents official USPS postcard. ( I can even remember my grandmother referring to a "penny postcard") . Why can't technology do something about that??? ...or am I missing the point-boat again? That is, maybe that 's what email is actually all about to begin with & I'm just still fumbling around & searching my files & desk drawers for antique correct postage. Thanx for Posting & Posting. SinCelery, Richard Canard
Check this out! A week or so ago I signed up for this "Informed deliery" with the USPS. I just first realized that I can log into their site and see pictures of all the mail getting delivered to me that day. Unfortunately, they only scan the business side so decorated postcards are only half as exciting - but look at this one! Ha! So cool.
