Dear Mercy,
I apologize for the delay. I had a little accident at the plant store yesterday. I was admiring the succulents that were on special and I was so distracted by a handsome Haworthia that I tripped on a flower pot and fell face first into a Mammillaria cactus! The doctor was able to pull all of the needles out of my face, but now I have a giant bandage wrapped around my head. I’m not even able to type and my studio assistant Pepper is helping me write this.

Below is a list of what I have available in the studio right now. Please let me know if you would be interested in any of these:

“Pedicure Vengeance” 2017 
oil on linen
36 x 46 in. 
$1,100

“Kitten Smoothie” 2017
oil on linen
36 x 46 in.
$1,000

“Surprise Facelift” 2016 

oil on linen
36 x 46 in.
$1,200

Hi  Jim,
Good to hear back from you i am okay with the cost of this two and below is my address so you can get the shipping cost and sum everything up so that you can let me know what is the total to pay and acquire the pieces

“Pedicure Vengeance” 
2017
oil on linen
36 x 46 in.
$1,100
===========================================
“Surprise Facelift” 
2016
oil on linen
36 x 46 in.
$1,200

Although i do not know the courier or shipping method you are planning to use but i must be honest with you it is a different ball game with delivery here which i think could be the same in most places due to the deteriorating economy all over the world.

We pay additional fee at the delivery point here in  Andorra because the couriers will never bring the package to ones house. Couriers like Fedex, UPS, DHL are not worth it here especially USPS and TNT all of them are not rendering good service here probably because they have already made names and well known.

Please you can contact this courier https://www.grannexpress.com (contact@grannexpress.com) with the weight/cost of the artwork and request the shipping and insurance cost to my address because they ship and deliver safely without having any issues with customs or loss of package.  Furthermore  unlike other couriers they will deliver to someones door step without requesting any further payment at the point of delivery.

With other couriers the package will not be delivered to your address rather you will have to go to their office to pick it up and when you get there you will be asked to pay additional money before collecting it.
I hope you get the shipping cost as soon as you can and total it up with the cost of the artwork so that i can give you the payment before the shipment is sent out.

I will be looking forward to hearing from you asap.
Thanks

Hello Mercy,
Sorry for my delayed response. I’m not sure if you saw my message about the accident at the plant store, but I still have the bandage on my head and have difficulty typing. And since my assistant Pepper is off for the holidays, I am using the voice recognition application on my phone to help me write this message. Please excuse any typos. Frogs.

I agree with you one hundred percent that ball games all over the world have deteriorated and they are not what they used to be. I will certainly contact the Granny Express to get a quote on shipping the works to you. I am going to contact them now. Frank you very much. I will get back to you, shorty.

Good morning, Mercy. I will be in the office all day today if you would like to go ahead and send your credit card number. Is there a particular merchant you would prefer? 

Are you doing anything special for the holidays? I’m getting ready for our annual Living Nativity reenactment and I am very excited. I’ll be portraying Baby Jesus as usual, but I guess things will be a little different this year since I have this bandage wrapped around my head. It will be like if Baby Jesus was also a mummy – I mean, can anyone prove he wasn’t? Hopefully no one will complain.

What is the name of the merchant you will be using so that i can inform my card provider that you will be running my card from USA
Thanks

Hello Jim,

Hi Mercy,

I just got home from rehearsal for our Living Nativity reenactment. We had a little disagreement about my appearance and the bandage around my head from the mishap at the plant store. The costume designer, Fern Moody, said that the Baby Jesus was definitely not a mummy, so she wanted someone else to play the part. But I convinced everyone else to wrap themselves up in bandages so the entire Nativity ensemble would be comprised of mummies – and that way we will have cross-appeal for people who were not ready for Halloween to be over. We took a vote and Fern Moody lost.

But yes please send the credit card number and I will run the charges for the two paintings you wanted: “Pedicure Vengeance” and Surprise Facelift.”

Best,
Jim

Good morning, Mercy. Actually I suppose it’s afternoon over there in Andorra! OK, I will contact Granny Express right away to arrange the shipment, although I’m not sure when they will be able to pickup since Christmas is just 2 days away!

Since you are in Catalonia, I’m sure you have all your Caganers on display? I was telling everyone in our Living Nativity group about your tradition and suggested incorporating it into our own live reenactment. It would add an international flair (along with the mummy part) and would serve a dual purpose of giving us a legitimate excuse to relieve ourselves in the manger when nature calls. I mean where else are we going to go?

– – –

Dear Mercy,

I am afraid I have some bad news on two fronts. First, the Health Department shut down our Living Nativity because of your suggestion to incorporate pooping Catalonian Caganer mummies. Don’t feel bad about it – I just wanted to inform you of the fecal infraction so you don’t inadvertently ruin other people’s holiday celebrations in the future.

Also, my assistant Pepper noticed that the 3 credit cards you gave us all had different billing addresses in 3 different zip codes so she called the bank to report them as stolen. Happy New Year!

Jim
