Howdy All,

I received Kristen Hermanny's mail on March 3. So much to love:

1) the lumberjack stamp - Kristen pays homage to her dad's family from the Upper Peninsula, who were loggers. Living in Minnesota, I am reminded of the folklore of Paul Bunyan and his blue ox, Babe. They are said to have created the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota by their footprints, incuding Lake Bemidji, which indeed has the shape of a giant footprint resembling it when viewed from high above.

2) the Minneapolis Riverfront stamp - a great reference to Minnesota.

3) the olympic postage stamps - cool because of the recent Winter Olympics.

Kristen wrote a lovely note on "bone-shaped" paper. (Woof!) A very nice pen friend, indeed! So glad we got acquainted on Instagram, and she introduced me to IUOMA. 

Hopefully I will be as prolific as you, Kristen! Thanks so much!
