Carina's timing is unbelievable! OK, so anyone would appreciate a travel envelope from Carina, at any time, but only someone who has traveled recently on just about every kind of transportation - well not a pencil or a caterpillar , Carina where do you think those things up? But really, there isn't anyone who would more of a kick than I got out of Carina's silly, striking envelope!
Inside the envelope, Carina had packaged the remarkable LIVING FANTASIES inside more paper. Notice the blackened tooth and the repair work Carina envisages I return to.
Inspite of the drudgery Carina anticipates, her upturned motor boat makes the optimist in me smile, 'Give future me a hug.'
The teachers I'm working with are young newly employed teachers and the school is apparently quite target driven, so I hope I can flick through these pages and not get taken to the front desk to show my CRB (the form that verifies that you are OK to work with children)...
Oh Carina, thank the man with the dumb bells! The poetry in the margins is fun to try to say, too. I'll bet the fellow with the hat has a very unusual accent.
Something x-rated that has been concealed... (thank you)
and a question... I always get the kids to put some questions in their books! This is a real teaching aid.
See they're already reading and getting gold stars to show their dads.
Thank you Carina for making the R portrait so attractive. The last time I went into a school the children were obsessed with asking me how old I was (I hadn't slept much the night before), maybe this will trick them into seeing me in a new light!and how did you know we have that same houseboat/shed on Cranberry Island?
Luckily it only has a climbing hydrangea on the roof!
This is a wonderful unfolding piece that goes in surprising directions. Guy in the funky sweater likes me too.
And yes, the car did break down and it rained and rained.
