"Thanks Amy, Jeff and Amanda!  Much appreciated.  My eraser carving skills have dwindled slightly over the years with failing eyesight and poor concentration so it's nice to get back into it again."

07.01.21 Dare Mister Michael Leigh, ..."How do you highlight someone's name in red with a link?"----You must be one of those from  the olden times--- the snail mail people---whatta you call  em ---"Mail Artists" from the twentieth century. Hang in there & Good Luck, SinCelery, Richard Canard

Hi Michael, I contacted the Special Collections department about it recently - but they are not open so I haven't 'seen' any of it yet. Another online avenue of exploration for me to follow up at the moment - I am stumbling along. I am very intrigued by the history and development of mail art. I didn't really know anything about it until I stumbled into it as a result of these lockdowns. It's one of those, 'curious things'.

The emails were empty appart from a link. Also they say to come from Yahoo but the wastedpapiers address said 'damimas.com' All very strange.
I do not want to write to your Yahoo address in case it is compromised.

Michael Good morning.
John has received two strange emails apparently from you . Their Yahoo adresses are wastedpapierscand wastedpapiersv
Did you send them? This is also strange as you and I have been recently communicating via Protonmail which is very safe. It is free with no ads. I do not use Yahoo anymore it drove me crazy with ads.
I hope your email has not been hacked

I love that orange dog!

I am also enjoying self isolation, we are taking it very seriously and started a week before the official date.

But I still have that I-cannot-cope-feeling. To think that some of my non-mail artists friends are bored. What is that?  Do you know?

This is for you, from Retailia with love.

19.12.19 Dare  Mister Michael Leigh,   ...Oh, to be in Manchester (at least for a couple of days)  Congratulations! "Curious Things" looks indeed most curious. Is that a Claes Olden burg  Rubber Stamp I see sitting on the topshelf of the vitrine??? Best Wishes (& deserving so )for your exhibition.SinCelery, Richard Canard

All the best,
