06.02.14 Dare Mister Rod Summers, Wow!!!...I saw the image of your newly baked bread at the Mail Art Café. You are a real wonder you are willing to let go of this shuffling of cardboard concept...(i.e. didn't I read somewhere that you were gonna retire from all this nonsense???) Best to you. Richard
