Heebee Post #840 - Crackerjack Kid - Hancock, New Hampshire - USA

 The Crackerjack Kid's return to Heebee Jeebeeland  is a pleasing affair, beginning with the freshness of the  Fluxus card seen above. "Fluxus Card & Sandstamp" (Yep, that stamp is sandpaper) is clean and powerful. This is the first of four terrific panels that were hinged together.  Note the perforation that renders the four connected panels as postal stamp plate block sheets.
 The second panel reveals what the four panels are all about - an art showing of the "Crackerjack and Kid".  This really is a fantastic pic of the mettlesome Crackerjack and his gifted daughter (Kid) bursting with glee from the postbox (she's grown up now). I would have loved to have attended that wonderful affair.
 Lauryn Welch, like her Dad, is a painter and mail artist and the center of attraction in the piece entitled "As Quilt" (Acrylic Paint and Fabric).  Her work next to her Dad's should have proved to be quite entertaining.
 Crackerjack's sandpaper postage is a jollity of wordplay poetry somehow printed on the rough side. Meanwhile, on the smooth right side, a few friendly notes from the longtime mail artist.  
 I am going to let this one speak for itself.
I love the way Crackerjack adorns his envelopes - like an important document of some official caliber. Great to have you back in the 4th Dimension my friend. I've just sent something your way about a week ago - seen it yet? Thank you very much and see you in the mail!
