Oops! I missed thanking Kevin on Mailman Day, I did not know there was one. But then I thank him every time I meet him. Thank you Carolyn, for the information. 

I did some investigation and found our that here in the UK there is no such day, disgraceful!

You are right, Katerina, here we have postmen  and postwomen or more familiarly,  posties. This last word has the advantage of being unisex. 

A recent survey found out that they have to walk at 2 miles per hour to deliver the post to about 100 premises in time. Posties claim that they have no time to chat, a thing they used to do.

Our Kevin walks very fast and can always stop for a few minutes for a chat. Once even he fought a couple of crows that were attacking Stella, the new kitten in the block.

Thank you, Carolyn for letting us know that February 4 is Mailman Day!

(or Carrier Day , or as they say in jolly ol' UK: "Postman Day" )

Now to give a belated "Ευχαριστώ"

to my "taxydromos" ( "fast runner/walker")

What would we do without these fine "mail art messengers" :-)

Well said, Carolyn, and (belated) Thank you, Postmen!

My postman had a card from Katerina which made him so happy. I wish I had been ready with my phone and took a video but I did only think of that when he had gone. Silly me.

He is never too busy to have a few words and he gets quite interested in Mail Art. He had posted the letter through my letterbox because, as he told me, he never reads to whom it is addressed ( this one was addressed to him) only reads the address line. Silly him.


Thank you Katerina and Happy New Year from Postman Kevin!

That's clever Momkat, just the van is in the right proportion for the peeps. I didn't spot it, but you did, well done.

Thank you Heleen you have done a great job of showing my mail art, putting together back and front of the envelope to join supermans's legs and body is a stroke of genius. In the blog, I mean, I cannot find a way to put comments there, sorry

Received great mail art from Mail Art Martha, showing her local Postpersons: 

Kevin and a Snail Mail Snail!

And here an other one depicting Kevin, showing who/what he in fact is: a Superhero!

Thank you very much, Martha!

I posted more pictures of Martha's mail art on my real weird animals blog.

Here are some local postpersons in ancient Egypt. Pictured by Sally Swain (one of my favourite painters), found in her great book 'Great Housewives of Art Revisited'.

Olá, eu não acho complicado. Estamos habituados.
