Wow, eh? The US Postal Service found this too difficult to deliver. Apparently it didn't like the handwritten first "e" in Nadine's last name. This came back today and I'm still laughing:

See, after studying it for 42 minutes, I noticed their circle around "Wendell." There must be hundreds of Nadines at #209: 

And then discovered the 99% indecipherable "undeliverable" at the lower left: 

USPS:  I will try harder, I swear.

I met a lady this weekend who used to crochet when she was mad. She said it always came out terrible because she did it so furiously that the stitches were all tight. Can't actually see Nadine having the patience for things like that.

Oh no, poor Nadine. Macrame really dates her.

She did mention living near a Senior Center where they had classes and stuff. She might have just given in and taken a macrame class or something.  Or she has become compulsively addicted to Bingo.

It IS, it's exactly like Sherlock. It's exhausting, except for when you're on a roll, which is always great because it's full of energy and yet you get to rest from the hunt.

Well DK, don't you have enough wives anyway?

Uh huh...following your blix can be a lot like Sherlock Holmes tracking down Moriarty...it's not as easy as saying to oneself: "Golly, I like sending postcards to people."

You are right Nancy--no one can compete when David puts on the powerblix and enchants everyone.  I'm thinking maybe Nadine is stamping return to sender herself? maybe she is so controlling that she is only receiving certain mail art? Nadine only loved me in L.A.  Burbank was the beginning of he end

Yes, that's the thing of it, Dave.... Plus Joseph Campbell really was a bit vague at times. Plus even the right blix keeps moving. It refuses to be permanent; that's hard for us humans.

The thing of it is (and Joseph Campbell was a little vague on this point) you really have to be sure you've seized on the right blix....

Comment by Nancy Bell Scott on January 13, 2014 at 8:23pm

we followed our blix, and look where it got us.

Comment by David Stafford on January 13, 2014 at 8:13pm

when in doubt follow your blix....
