So here it is 2022, time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.I'm in remission from cancer discovered late 2021 and treated with chemo, a delight if you like crappy side effects but who's to compain, it's got me in remission from a colon cancer which had metastasized to a lung before it was discovered but my Turkish Delight Dr. Soley [Bayraktar] has beaten it back with metabolic poisons for which I am undyingly [at least for now] grateful.and 2day I received "Kermesse 28: from JeanFi of Belgium and find it a wealth of amusement and useful information. F'rinstance: Who knew that one should be hoarding Sriracha sauce due to a hot pepper shortage or that it lists the ugliest cities in the world. I for one will continue corresponding with JeanFi in hopes that I will receive more issues.Also: our wheelchair accessible, doublewide, new home nears completion in our front yard and we expect to move in by EOY'22.and just for laughs and good vibes here's wishing everyone reading this…See More

That is great news, Fike! Woohoo! Keep up the good work and thanks for letting me know. And no worries, the round of mail I just sent out is my first since about March. Turns out I can't garden and do mail art at the same time, forget about walking and chewing gum. My list of correspondents may have to be curated... But I will eventually respond to all.

In visual news, squirrels carved my jack-o-lantern for me this year. Nature is lit! ;-)

Thanks for the mail, Fike, hope you are not overeating the polar bear liver! Like pennyroyal, I hear it can be toxic... I am finally getting caught up with mail after being away for a couple weeks. See you in the mail.

I guess I do. Or at least, that's wot the clicky-button said on the previous page. from which [by clicking] 'I' got 'here'. [virtually].

Soon we start ripping out the floor of the computer 'den' at strangulensis Manor.
