The Curling Steam From The Gravy Boat

November is here and the leaves pile up on the back garden path. Soon the green bin will be full.  We are enjoying the colours of Autumn every day on our walks . Amazing yellows, browns and reds.  We are lucky to have the countryside so close here in Rudheath.  It's but a short walk to the Trent & Mersey canal in one direction and down the lane the other way are fishing ponds and the River Dane.  Lots of farm land full of corn stubble and some for sheep and cows.  Sadly some has been sold…See More

Monday Again!?

Yes, it soon comes round.  Pretty sure what we laughingly call "the government"  is shaving at least three days off of each week to make them shorter. I know not the reason why?  Maybe something to do with how moronic they all are?  Anyway, back in the Land Of Nod we are dreaming of doodles - some we imagined in our wilder dreams and others that actually made it to the page of my tiny sketchbook-…See More

Nice postcard from Alan Brignull of Adanaland fame . He also sent some excellent artistamps based on the W.H. Auden poem "Night Mail" which was also a fabulous short film from the 30's .Tony Hancock was also a big favourite with mail artist Eric Finlay who made several works with shots or stills from his films.  Particularly his classic "The Rebel" about a civil servant …See More

Doodles

More doodles for the FB "Daily Doodle" group.  I keep forgetting to do this but managed these recently.  Never been a great one for keeping a sketchbook going - they usually fizzle out after the first few pages.  Diaries were the same.  I did holiday diaries which are nice to look back on but otherwise I have to rely on old letters that I never sent or ones…

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.

All the best,

Michael, could you send me your postal address? I wish to include you in a September mailing to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Fluxus Bucks. ~Jack Lattemann, Cascadia Artpost, 3116 Moore St. SE, Olympia, WA 98501-3517 USA ~ jackklattemann@comcast.net

Hi Michael, If you want to do a swop with me/UK add and pass let me have your address.  i've just added something to an add & pass from Laura so not really sure who to send it on to... 

ps I'm not on facebook/instagram/twitter, I'm a proper snail mail bunny

Thank you Michael, I'm sorry for my delayed reply, I don't get on the computer too much.  Yes I'm a mail artist in the UK, based in London.  I was wondering if you might have a UK mail artists directory.  I'm mainly interested in mail art swops, or contributing to various themed calls - I prefer that over adding and passing.
