Hi folks,

OK, I have been traveling, working, helping my parents, and buying property in SE Asia for my retirement as a beach bum at 40. No excuses. Yes, my postcards have been sitting by the door now for 3 months or more, my Kodachromes are ready to packaged and sent out and yes, I remember the Polaroids I still owe from a YEAR ago.

I'm back for a week this week - so besides my taxes which I still have to do, I will remember to send out what I have. I know, you've all heard that before. Plus I have 100 or so PMs I have to read - must be angry recipients ... I understand.

My sincere apologies everyone.

Regards, Art.

Glad to hear you are OK and it's just life that got in your way. Looking forward to seeing your postcard.

Art, I actually thought that you may have been a victim of the monetary problem which seems to have gone through virtually every country.

Extremely glad that you are still hanging in there!

I have a feeling I may be delinquent on the same Polaroid exchange as you - in fact, we could even owe each other a Polaroid; it's been so long I can't remember!

I made my first print in the new darkroom last weekend, so the hiatus caused by my house move may have finally drawn to a close. I just need to try and remember who I owe what to now...

I have no problem with Art, but the deadbeats are the reason why I no longer do any photo exchange.

OK, OK, deadbeat update here ... I have now printed, matted and packaged all the prints (and postcards that have been lying about for months) to send out. Let's see to make sure I have everything covered:

Postcard Exchange #15 - 50 something postcards; I didn't count.
Alternative Print Exchange #8 - Phil, Cara, and Jeff
Group Print Exchange #11 - Randy and Matt (Gene's already got my print)
Toy Camera Print Exchange #3(?) - Vaughn and Fintan
Fine Art Print Exchange #1 - Thomas
Kodachrome Slide Exchange - Stan, Chris and Michael (though I haven't received a single slide)
Ode to Polaroid Exchange - David, Keeds, Peter, Suzanne, Black Dog, Fintan; kraker, rkmiec, MartinB, dianna, JLMoore3rd

Did I miss anyone? I don't think so, but if I did, please advise. Deeply and sincerely sorry to all for the EXTREME tardiness on my part.

Regards, Art.

No worries!

By my count, there are 72+ people who are going to be very happy (assuming no overlaps) :).

Also owe Anupam in the alternative print exchange - forgot he was a last minute addition to my group. Everything sent but the slides. I maybe late (like deadbeat late), but I ain't a stiffler! :D

Regards, Art.

Oh Great. Thanks A Lot, Art!

Now I'll have to get off my butt and finish prints for a post card exchange and an alt. print exchange. I can no longer say "I'll get to it when pigs fly or when Art sends his prints." I can no longer say "Yeah, I'm late with my prints, but at least I'm not Art." When people complain about my tardiness, I can no longer reply "Oh, I don't know, it could be worst. It could be raining or you could have Art in the exchange." (See recent movie quote thread.) I may even have to brush up on my excuses. Got any good ones I could use, like the dog ate my print or ...?

Art, you've been my hero for so long. It is disappointing to see the mighty fall.

Art, you've started catching up indeed! Got your postcard from round 15 yesterday (and I don't even blame you for the occasional error in writing names, that's only normal when you're writing 150 cards ;) ). Thanks!

Glad to hear you are okay Art. I no longer do print exchanges as it would appear many people are willing to let prints out the door that are not the best work they can do, not processed archivally, or they arrive bent and mangled up. That's my rant.. .02 cents
