Hell low, Halo, Bellz.

Is that you, Lou?
Long time no   cipher.

If it were discovered a  former member of the RH Society sent me that photo, I would be unable to identify her in a line up, but May Bee lying down and my agent would deny he had served as drunken carrier Pig Eon.

I previously learned about the muffled "undertaker business" typewriter from skimming Vol 2 of William Patterson's Heinlein biography.  Prior pigeon, I  had not seen such a clear picture of the sentinel ant head.

I was grateful to view the beast.

I've read a few of Heinlein's works.

 Something of his might make it onto my '21 list, or maybe both Patterson volumes will. What little I skimmed of Vol 2 was good. But my dance card  of death is rapidly filling to capacity.

 (I just realized I will die in '42. Thank you, ever hovering Premonition Bitch goddess. Now, how about those lotto numbers? Or whether or not I should invest in graphene?)

"Katzenjammer Typography."

Hahaha.

Captain Karig would approve.

'Allo!
Sorry about the delay in reply here--
I'm pretty much not able to work out my access to the forum in an consistent frequency--
Keep having those pesky 'Near-Life'interregnum(s?Interregneae?)that i mentioned a few posts back.
Still asking the fondly burning question that has swept both continents:
Are you familiar with Mr.Heinlein's Jouvenile series?
Do you find his tomes quite fetching and nostalgic?
I've not become too familiar with his early life experiences.
Wildly incongruent asides have bewildered my cognitory assumptions concearning his written efluvia.
Pressed for time am I,und Zo must occlude the charactaristic characters usually appended here when i compose an missive.

i will make my krills look like random accidents or ssuicides,impulsive homicides,and will not take credits in the newspapers or on tee-vee....there will be more...

Dear Bzzzzzz/Lord of the Flies/aka Bizzy Buzz Buzz

I am unfamiliar with that series.
I do experience nostalgia when reading his script. I would even coin  the word, "SIMAKstalgia," as I drive off a cliff in a 1988 old Ford.

Whenever I manage to knead the somewhat large two volume biography previously mentioned, I have little doubt of diving into his records.

I was in a thrift store yesterday and saw three of those Smith -Corona cartridge electric typewriters.
