Tom Hilgartner replied to Terry Owenby's discussion Question from a New Person in the group ADD & PASS - The X Files
"HI Terry, As you know, add/pass swaps can work via a pre-arranged order, but in my experience they are more often somewhat random in terms of who you send to once you've added. Clearly, there are folks in this group who ask "who wants this…"

Hi thank you for invited me. I am not used to use this iuoma web site as I found it difficult to use and understand, but I am ok to send you a mail art if you wish. Best regards, Azucena

I´ve just seen your request to become friends.  Happy to accept it!

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA I was unable to welcome you on board.  At the time I was in a celestial journey far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to Planet Earth, I´d love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:


The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 24827
Curitiba-PR
80510-970
Brazil

I look forward to see a piece of yours in our terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a Celestial Promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.
