    Dear Lady N

    You act as the perfect razz for ‘start your day with clay’ pitch. I wanted to catch you before the fall
    (there must be a raspberry here someplace) sweeps you off your feet.

    Chasan has done nothing save complain about slaving up and down the stairs with bag after bag of potential
    sunshine for you and the Eurasia Tunnel crew—as you schlep under the Bosphorus over oily shrimp and chilled
    lemon toward fame and fortune. Good luck with your cool cones and hot ceramics 10/4

    Please knock me up a Über kool dR mug for Xmas when you get a minute away from the sink to celebrate my
    early release for something I did not do or want to admit in public for the rest of my life. I was quenched by blows.

    I love you.

    Dax .....

    Nermin was delighted to hear the previous rumors of your possible early release
    the last time she was in Bodrum .....



    if the rumors prove not to be true this time either
    she may be able to create a vessel for you that fits through those bars
    to use as an inkwell in case you need to barter your  Mount Blanc
    for some
    other prison currency

    I remember in the 80's there were thousands to the pound!

    I put a tip under the plate in a restaurant and it toppled over onto the floor lol

    I want a mug for Xmas​
    from rejects, off the shop floor​
    old tea ladies sweepings, trial​
    stuff, unjudged and unworthy​
    I want Merlin to be proud of me​
    face me with his back arched​
    high against disinterest and​
    opposed to perfection. I want​
    a mug, a unique mug, dated.​

    Delightful those egg shells!  I bet they're not an easy item to pack and transport, although then again maybe varnish or some such has been applied to strengthen them.
