Mike, thanks for the llamas! I love them! I'm having trouble posting photos right now, I'll see if I can do it in another place on this thing.

Mike if you want Richard C. to send you his immortal stuff, send him a poem, doesn't matter if it's good or bad. He loves that! And Richard, if you see this, here's a poem: 

     Virginia Woolf is back in town

     pockets full of rocks,

     stickers in her socks.

     Virginia Woolf is back in town

     trying to catch Leonard

     wearing her gown.

Hi Mike,

Hope you are doing well. :)

Thank you for the nice printed  black and blue card that arrived. Is that a Linocut? Or a stamped card? Love the design.

 Sorry that I can't upload a photo of it but maybe you can do it. :)

I am still having problems with storage on my computer. :(

Yes, it is very HOT here ! In the High 90's but feels like 105! :(

Today is my Birthday so, I am catching up on a few things and tomorrow will celebrate! LOL

Keep well ,

Mike thank you for the fabulous Mail Art. First, the envelope and postage stamps are amazing. I love the postage especially! And the super-shiny stickered and sewn piece inside! Really nicely done. Thank you for the nice letter and the vintage postcards! All in all a very ice bit of mail art!

Still no sign of your AM- think it was lost at sea.  I'll keep a weather eye out for it.

Hi!  Thanks for your postal stationery envelope!  Yes I love these old pieces of mail - and I really like the image inside with the cats and guitar.  sweet.  With your typewriter, there should be a little metal lever you push to change the direction the ribbon moves.  On my Smith Corona, a tiny metal bar - I don't know what else to call it - it to the far upper left of the keys.  I can push it up or down (there is no marking indicating what it does) to switch the direction the ribbon flows.  So when it reaches the end in one direction, it appears to run out of ink, and as soon as I switch that tiny lever, it starts moving the other way and clears.  I hope this helps.

You should not have to manually flip your ribbon each time.  Let me know.  I like your carved Mike stamp.  Very nice of Bonniediva.  I am getting ready to head out on a trip so I will resume my IUOMA work in November.  Cheers!
