There is a story behind this first piece....1. it got lost in transit and showed up in my mail box in March (not sure of the original post date)..AIS was pleasantly surprised when I thanked him for the piece. 2. this piece was made at 39,000 feet as AIS on this can a Dude get thru security with scissors, glue, hole punches etc. and everyone else can't take a 2oz bottle of ANyTHINg on board??? 

Here it is folks...."Maximum Art".....front and back...

this second piece is funnyyyyyy! Gave me quite a laugh when it landed in my other explanations is "Bread Ties"...front and back...

Dean....thank you so much for both pieces...something coming your way soon...hugs *!*

I hope your landing navigation device yields better results than your GPScaching one, Dean....otherwise you'll be going round and round in circles without finding the runway

SOMEONE, ANYONE-- ask Dean what he's doing?

Sounds very dangereuse. I'll just pay the landing fee.  It is likely to be cheaper than messing up your flower beds!

The courtyard isn't big enough for the jet, but if you're careful you could parachute into one of the flower beds. I'll be on the lookout for you.

There's no need to land, Dean. Parachute in and save your self the landing fees.

Dear Susan,

I just looked at the landing fees for the jet at SFO and OAK.  Both are outrageously priced.  How big is your backyard?

My cats will give you a message, Dean. Bianca will lie on your feet and Trouble will lie on your neck.

(And then there is Gizmo...)

Aww, shucks.

A wonderful blog Amy. And happy they arrived to a good home.  Actually Val has a point.  You see on a private jet, the on board assistances, (they do not want to be called Air Hostess), gives you a back and neck message.  I think these messages bring out the creative side in me.

Anyway I plan to fly down South to see Val in June and I hope he has been brushing up on his message techniques!  Watch out for lots of creative Mail Art coming out of Sigean, France.

Berkeley will just have to wait until I get enough money to refuel the jet!

Thanks again Amy

Amy, Dean doesn't go through Security like thee & me.

He has his own private jet on which he can do anything he likes.

Naturally he chooses Mail Art.

It has been conscientiously documented -- by, of course,  de Vilo-SLoane, in his usual scholarly manner -- that Dean's most memorable Mail Art has been created when he has been  flying between 35-40,000 ft. At that altitude, glue sticks acquire, according to our ver own kritik, " special powers"*
