If you would like to send me Christmas greetings or cards, please send by snail mail, if possible with really cool stamps.

As I did last year, I’ll try to post all the places whence they arrived from around the world.  Also, I find the notes and letters which describe the year people have had to be interesting and, often, moving.  I read them all.

I have a US PO BOX address.

If you need to send anything that requires a signature, such as gold bars, a Bugatti Chiron, bearer bonds, cases of Pappy Van Winkle, complete Pontifical Mass vestment sets … you know, the usual stuff, get in touch with me for an alternate address.

Please! DON’T send perishable food items. I am sure they would be wonderful, and neither poisonous nor hallucinogenic… mostly. But, please, just don’t.

If you put glitter in the card, I’ll probably recite the Maledictory Psalms against you.

Thanks in advance for your kind cooperation in this matter of great importance.

Have a wonderful Advent!

Please share!
