Steve Grand is an American musician and singer-songwriter from Lemont, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. He became an overnight internet celebrity and was acclaimed by some to be the first openly gay male country musician to attract mainstream attention in the United States. The music video of his first hit "All-American Boy" went viral on YouTube in less than a week in July 2013.

Thanks Steve . . so happy to hear from you.

Dale Chihuly, Seattle Washington, USA

 A great way to begin the Birthday celebration with mail art from Dale Chihuly. . . loved the envelope with stamps from US Army and Navy in 1956 and signature ink addition.
Thanks Dale!

Image from our recent trip to the Chihuly Garden & Glass museum. This one has such resonance for me. One of the very first works I ever saw of Chihuly was the round orbs at the Craft Museum in NYC many years ago.
