Hi Mike,

Your bundle A&P arrived in The Netherlands once more... So many eyes saw it... and it even came to me twice! So I thought : time to go home.

I posted the many eyed envelope yesterday. Hope you receive it in good health.

Regards, Margreet

Eroticism always had been one of the motors of human being ¿Is it still a motor at the present time? ¿Was it affected by the actual global crisis? Consider the option to work about eroticism as a theme in all the possible ways, the requiered size is suitable to develop it, and it will be interesting to prove how the actual crisis is affecting eroticism in connection with Postal Art.

Dear Cap'n, Hey! sailor, I just got an envelope full of mail art goodies from you, and am off now to the Playland Fun House and the longest slide in the world (how long is it I wonder?) Hélas, I missed your Shimo 2nd Reception, sorry. But do, please invite me to the 3rd one. Did you exhibit just one digital collage (as the invitation card implies) or many?

 The collage add and pass thing will come back to you one day.

But before that, a French (postal, of course) letter will be on its way to you next week.

Have a good  arty weekend!

Regards, Val

Dear Captain!

Merde -- that's one French word that you can truly boycott.

Thanks for the laest envelope with all the ATCs and stamps and labels and everything else. I am now 10,000 things richer, too.

I was very interested to read about your old typewriter. I too had one when I went to university in the 60's, and remember all the hassle of carbon copies, correction fluids and tapes, etc. (Didn't one of the Monkees' parents invent correction tape?). I think we still have an old typewriter in a cupboard somewhere, but it didn't work last time I tried it: some of the 'arms' were stuck.

It's nice to know that you'll be using it again. Can you get ink reels for it these days?

I'll be mailing you something back soon.

Hope you are well, Regards and thanks once more, Val

And yet another mike Dickau very special envelope stuffed full of goodies has just arrived. Thankyou/Merci/Bedankt: Gracias; etc.

As requested, I'll add and pass...but in a few days time when things are a bit less busy.

And I'll mail you something back...perhaps an add'n'pass, too.

Hope you're having a good summer.

Regards, Val

 Bonjour Mike!

The poor Lady Captain Dickau has a lot to put up with your Factoids, but I truly appreciated them. Did you woo her in the mid-80's with that spider on your forehead,

And your banana plate with dominos. (Do you know dominos were originally named after the Dominican Order? Hence their white on black nature).

And the Big Dada/Big Mama card -- which is really cool.

And all the rest of it, too.

I'll be mailing you something back soon, and , in the meantime, Best wishes from Val

PS I probably should know this, but don't: is the cap'n the same guy as the Sticker Dude?

PPS Here's a couple of domino themed images i produced for a photo-essay-type book I once did on dice.

Dear Mike, Thank you for the stamps and goodies you sent.  I blogged it her.  Real pro stuff you have there.

Bonjour Monsieur Mike

You sent me a photo of an old wooden wagon wheel -- for which many thanks;

The photo below is sort of related to it. It's made up of photos of disused wheels i found in the countryside round here;

Regards, Val (& Dolly)
