Heebee Post #916 - Stan Askew - Pasadena, California - USA
Gazing into the future of the new year. Stan's New Year's vision feels good on the brain as we consider the promise of trying to do a few things better, like letting go of rotten memories than slow you down, and conquering your procrastination list. Rather as if a new beginning - don't mess it up this time around!
Interesting how the contrast of the still and calm water with the tangle and chaos of rock jetting out of it works nicely together - especially with the great reflection that's larger than the monolithic formation. All this on a standard bed of Askew Tiffanies.
Stan has contributed mightily to my collection of vintage postcards over the years and these three are another wonderful addition. "Homes of the Stars" postcards from the late 1930's to the late 1940's. The card above is the home of the beautiful Austrian-American actress Hedy Lamar. My first thoughts of Hedy are always her role as the splendorous siren Tondelayo in the film White Cargo (1942).
The comfortable home of the Nelson's. Ozzie was a member of the Red Skelton Radio Show and in 1944 when Red was drafted, Ozzie was prompted to start a show of his own. And so, "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" radio show was born. Their famous TV show of the same name, that depicted the typical 1950's American family, premiered on ABC in 1952 and ran until 1966. It was pretty corny but, I liked it.
Home of the well known singing Cowboy, Gene Autry. Autry was an amazingly likable individual that has a long history in Radio, TV, Film and many other endeavors, such as forming and acquiring the Los Angeles Angels baseball team in 1960. What a guy!
Thanks Stan, it's always a pleasurable adventure to open your magic stuffed envelopes. I hope your 2013 is filled with happiness. See you in the mail! Photo Askew.

September 17 - 2013: "Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no other is, and to do what no other can do." - Channing. One of the best uses of originality is to say common things in an uncommon way. Mail Art lends itself nicely to this lane of thought. In fact, if you would like to continue down that noble lane, Mail Art creation is a perfect venue for a display of originality - and "If you create something, you must be something" - Goethe. So, let's be a "Something" and have some fun as well. Heebee Jeebeeland welcomes all you "Somethings". The 4th Dimension is the perfect place for all you "Somethings that create something". Anything. And, if you will be absolutely silent in your mind for a moment and listen carefully, you can just hear the dreamy strains of Judy Garland singing that glorious tune "Something over the Rainbow". Ahhhhhh, yes. Remember: Senders receive! Test Tower / 1365 Centralia-Alpha Rd. / Chehalis, WA / 98532 USA

Welcome to Heebee Jeebeeland
When I was a kid, there was an old cartoon I saw many times on TV. While a child was sleeping, the unusual wallpaper all over his room came to life and began to dance back and forth, up and down in a rather fanciful symmetry accompanied by a sort of goofy graveyard mischief music. All manner of mayhem went on until the sun shone again at dawn and the dancing pranksters rushed back to their original spots and the wallpaper became still again. It is in the vicinity of that realm that Heebee Jeebeeland exists. Please send Mail Art that needs to live here and be shown on this blog. ********************************************
