Mr Gayer, You don't know me but I have a piece o' Mail Art ready to go to you if you will kindly send me your address. I need it ASAP as I am going off-island tomorrow---and off-island is the only time I can mail things.  My trips off are few and far between. The piece may not be to your liking---but it is something. Thanks. Cheers
