    On another note--I just bought the new JFK stamps at the post office today. I had no idea they were being offered.

    I want to thank publicly the InCoWriMo 2017 participants who kept my address for writing this year! I've thanked them in snailmail too, but one hasn't yet received it as I've just dropped it in a mailbox for Monday morning pickup. I plan to fully participate in InCoWriMo 2018 if it happens!

    Sent out 54 letters and four postcards, surpassing 2016's output of 44 pieces of handwritten mail. Didn't truly engage in InCoWriMo as my goal was to work on a backlog of 23 letters from one steadfast penthusiast correspondent, and I managed to reduce it by... three.

    Something should happen in 2018, but where.... we'll have to wait and see. I do hope I will know the details by the end of the year.
    I am a Penpaller and Correspondent. I have a blog. I have a snail mail forum for discussion and postal challenges....
    Best wishes,

    I had a very successful and great time with InCoWriMo, this year. I managed to mail 52 letters (some were postcards too.).

    As a newbie and generally far from out-going weevil, I managed 28/28. Not very impressive amongst you avid correspondents, and I may have leaned heavily upon the postcard as means of communiqué, but as I haven't written to a pen pal in thirty years since I was forced to inflict my atrocious French on some equally unwilling fille française I consider it a success. Not least because of the positive, albeit not necessarily written, responses I've got from non-participants.

    I didn't have that many letters to reply to or write during February, but boy have they flooded in after the 28th! Now I'm behind again!

    Al Jaffee (Humbug, MAD Magazine, and other magazines) wrote me back: one autograph for me, one for a friend which I mailed within an hour of receipt, and a brief note about celebrating Arnold Roth's birthday. A very good mail day!
