Hi there Ficus  ! I've been doing art mail since I was 10 years old, but I found out about IUOMA last December. So happy and grateful about it !!!!!

Howdy, meye [new] ol' Bud; weiser I am now. I have received a package from you, today, 15 Feb 2021. The postmark is from last year! You may have received mail from me recently or you will imminently (or maybe in a few months time!). That envelope is not a reply to the mailing that I received today because, as far as I know right now, I am not a time traveller but time and other things may prove differently. I will reply to this one quite soon because I like it a lot and have much to say regarding it. Thank you. Mel Anie (PS. I still can't post or see images on here so you are just getting lots of words from me. Oh dear.)

Hi Fike! Thank you so much for the Mail Art and printed Art Cards. I love them! I like Sci Fi, too, but am not nearly as avid a reader as you are. Hope you are well and staying safe. Best Regards, Pam

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].

Currently [re]reading all of William Gibson, at least the novels and a wonderful read he is! Taking a break with Thomas M. Disch's "334" over these past few nites, charging up the ol' memory B4 lites out each eve. Richard Brautigan awaits also.

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

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Posted on October 4, 2014 at 5:01pm 0 Comments

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

http://www.andersonstampandcoin.com/Pricelist.pdf

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.

Y'r Ol' Bud,     Fike
