Houston … the Eagle has landed … and so has Benta’s plane 😉

We’ve exchanged the necessary email messages and I’ve put together the mailing info and sent it to everyone who made lotto blocks in November.  You all know the drill:

If you haven’t received email from me or have problems opening the attachment, please let me know ASAP.

Otherwise, because of the glut of holiday cards and packages that will soon be clogging up postal systems everywhere, please send your blocks ASAP 😉

  3. Kiffissia Greece 1969 I was 18, recently moved to Greece, sitting in a kaffenia (cafe) sipping coffee with friends and watching the "giant step" on Greek TV. I was awe struck and very proud
