Hello, my name is Art and I'm a print exchange deadbeat
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.
Glad to hear you are OK and it's just life that got in your way. Looking forward to seeing your postcard.
And you have prints from the Collectors' Show to pick up from the VPC!!!!!
Good to hear that you are OK and didn't fall off the edge of the earth.
Long live Ed "Big Daddy" Roth!!

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!
Hi Art, add the Toy Camera Print Exchange 2008 to your list

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!

Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...
No worries Art! We still love ya..... and I know you're just a little late but you will come through!
I have no problem with Art, but the deadbeats are the reason why I no longer do any photo exchange.
Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
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.

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