I got this great letter today from Denmark

As you can see there is an Origami and a leather strop for my knife
The knife in the picture is one that I made years ago another thing
the writer and I have in common.
We both also make knifes and do leather-work.
Unfortunately we both have spinal injuries, but we both smile a lot
Do you know who it is yet?

Mike is just too quick at answering. I would have guessed Mads just from the printing style on the letter alone.

Just look at Mads blogs. If you got a question, its probably answered in there some where.

What’s the plan for the Origami ?

Don Mads has sent me some paper squares and I think
it is a challenge but he has not said yet
It’s a mystery for sure
My Origami is rolling a cigarette :)

So what will it be? Perhaps the Grease Box makers will come alive? It is a very happy moment for me to hear that LJs are continuing to make friends around the world. Wasn’t it Div who coined the GBOC? I’m a member, are you?

Laughs here.
Big smile.
Thank you jamie (and the rest of you for the kind words).
Yes I send you the papers as a challange, so that you could try and fold some cranes for your grand children.
