"i am with you Michael, I do not listen to BoJo. Well, i never did, to tell the truth, but now I only listen to the experts. I only go out with mask and gloves, some white cotton ones I  had bought in the chemist long ago for something I forgot.…"

My Dahlia's Have Changed Colour

Classic line from Gardener's Question Time.  I can't stand it but Hazel is the green fingered one ad she insists on listening.  I might go and stick some little people onto these grommets.See More

100th day of Self Isolation

Quite a thing this sneaky bug that hides inside people who show no symptoms.  Easing of lockdowqn here in the UK but not so sure this is a good idea with medical experts predicting another spike in the Winter.  Still over a 100 people dying every day although the numbers are becoming less every day.  I am still not going into shops. The only place I go into is the pharmacy for my medication - once a month.  They have a one in one out policy which suits me. Usually when I go I'm the only one…

"Road To Nowhere"  Collage for latest theme of "Comings And Goings" at the communal collage blog KOLLAGE KIT. ( join today!)

The road today is an early wander down the road to the River Dane and the new fishing pond we found that has ducklings and baby coots.

We went the other day and it was wonderfully quiet except for the…

I love that orange dog!

I am also enjoying self isolation, we are taking it very seriously and started a week before the official date.

But I still have that I-cannot-cope-feeling. To think that some of my non-mail artists friends are bored. What is that?  Do you know?

This is for you, from Retailia with love.

Great to hear from you Michael! FYI, my email address is jackklattemann@comcast.net

You should receive the Hannah commemoration envelope soon. Yesterday I sent Hazel mail that she should received in the next week.

All the best,

Jack

Hi Michael, If you want to do a swop with me/UK add and pass let me have your address.  i've just added something to an add & pass from Laura so not really sure who to send it on to... 

ps I'm not on facebook/instagram/twitter, I'm a proper snail mail bunny

Thank you Michael, I'm sorry for my delayed reply, I don't get on the computer too much.  Yes I'm a mail artist in the UK, based in London.  I was wondering if you might have a UK mail artists directory.  I'm mainly interested in mail art swops, or contributing to various themed calls - I prefer that over adding and passing.
