The Last Nineteen
March 31: I received from a patron in Missouri, a generous packet of his Paintings printed as postcards. They are quite beautiful and I am moved by the kindness.
23-Mar-07: I bought 200 Sugar Ray Robinson stamps with some of the thousand bucks my Uncle Jesse left me. Uncle Jesse Von Woolard served in the 29th Division in the first wave at Omaha Beach. He told me he was sweating blood. I always thought it was hyperbole until I googled it. He would be okay with what I am doing.
January 26: Three folks sent postage for thirteen offers, an official USPS ballot postcard to choose Elvis or the parody he became for a postage stamp, some of the stamps themselves, and an interesting and mysterious machine part.
January 15: I will kick in another 10 units postage
January 8,2007: There remains enough postage for two Free Offers. After that is gone, the deal is done, at least in the US. It is a disappointment that so many people choose not to replace the stamps used to send their mailbox artshows. If some stamps arrive, we'll keep it going. The project has been time consuming and expensive. I will continue to send packets to patrons in diverse parts of the Earth. I need to paint for a while so this project will simmer on a back burner
