I don't have a printer at home, and the office is still closed, so what I"m doing is by hand and may take me a bit longer.

I have had some interesting chats, not recently, with our postman about the Emporium envelopes.

Envelope sorted, mail merge complete. Insert inspiration has transpired. Now waiting on USPS to ship me a supply of international stamps. More insert inspiration may happen in the meantime.

Right now I wish it wasn't one in the morning. :shock: :roll:

The outer envelopes are not very interesting but I hope you will like the contents.

Don't rush, this is meant to be a bit of a fun distraction not a guilt ridden chore. You could take several months to get it in the mail and I'd still blame the slow postal situation due to current events :roll:

No, I want to, because I'll enjoy receiving mine more knowing I've reciprocated.

I recently watched a lecture about Cook and the transit of Venus.
The science was interesting but what really amazed me was communication.
How information was disseminated from the remote parts of the world back to Greenwich.
Messages were passed from ship to ship on a random roue,
It took 6 months for the transit data to get back to Britain,

I got two today from Steve, and who is Teemers & Sppols? I wouldn't be any good at driving a cart. There is a livery stable at the top of the lane here! I love Steve's envelope. I had to look up some of those there long words. We don't have the likes of them in Llamedos.

Teemer & Spools are printers;they are famed in being the first printer for the Ankh-Morpork stamps.
