Some Assembly Required: Katerina, Elsa, and Le Sticker Dude

Katerina sent me this overstuffed envelope from Greece, containing two boekies, one chockful of images for a collage yet to be born. (I'll see what I can do). Thank you, Katerina.

How it all unfolded in not quite real time.

Then from outta left field (or New Haven, CT) I received a package from Elsa von Freytag-Lorinhoven whom I hadn't heard from in, like, forever. We have a lot of catching up to do. Elsa is still with us at the spry old age of 142. (The descriptor "spry" is now automatically attached to anyone over the age of 66 who is still ambulatory). Unfortunately, there were no newsy notes within the riotous envelope. Clues, yes, newsy notes not so much. From the evidence at hand (see contents lower left quadrant) I'm thinking Elsa has gone off her meds again. (In this case: embalming fluid). Nonetheless we are grateful and would like to return fire but her address was illegible (due to her advanced age). Please write with address, Elsa and I'll send you both the A side and the B side. Thank you, Elsa. Stay in touch.

Le Sticker Dude has been active lately in my mailbox. This is the second in a series of envelopes filled with stickers from his travels around the world. Or thither and yon as he would say.

Inside a proxy work from Amy Irwen. Grille or be Grilled sticker. Plus the unmentionables. Thank you, Joel. I'll repurpose these immediately.

Okay, we're gonna make an exception in your case, Bradford. But that's it. We're not going to grandfather in a bunch of spry 19 year olds no matter how nimble.

I beg to differ with the 65+ restriction.  I am 19, but I am spry.

Ha, I sent Elsa instructions on how-to-draw-a-cat some time ago, seems like she is practicing... or not... Nice!
