THE BATTLE OF THE SEA OF GLASS

After the horrible developments in Southern Digbyland, with the mermaid population of the pristine waters of Binkel's Bay forced to leave their homes due to the new oil rigs despoiling their habitat, the Governor of Binklish Vuyana asked the West Merremindian mermaids for help when he knew that the Gwogton-Digby oil companies had their eyes on Vuyana.

The map of West Merreminde was redrawn, adding new territories which now would be under the  of the West Merreminde Naval Command. They called the Sea Serpent Battalion into active duty to combat the Digby Brothers' fleet that was advancing from Digby Bay.

With the battle raging in the Sea of Glass, the normal mermaid undersea mail deliveries were stopped by the West Merremindian government. The Gopher mail services however were fully operative, and also provided a safe and secure means to delivery important messages.

CONCOW MAIDU MYTHOLOGY/ 'Kuksu' by Eric Whollem/ Natural Earth Pigments on a Wooden Panel/ Collection of Herb Puffer

Kuksu is the name of the First Man. He was born of mud up on Table Mountain in Butte County, California, according to the legends of the Concow Maidu Indians.

There with Morningstar, his bride, they began the first human family on earth.

Later there arose a Dream Society based on the stories of Kuksu. A religion arose called 'Kuksu,' which is practised today by members of the Maidu, Nisenan, Wintun, Pomo, Cato, Miwok, and Patwin.

The late Herb Puffer was the director of the Pacific Western Traders in Folsom, California, where he was known for his big Pow Wows for artists among all groups of California Indians. Mr. Puffer is known for his philanthropy in donating to numerous cultural groups of California. For example, he helped the Yokuts Indians of the San Joaquin Valley in getting traditional costumes for their dance troup.

HAWAIIAN MISSIONARY STAMP PARODY/ Itchy Holler Radio Missionary Postage Stamps/ FAUX POSTAGE by Eric Whollem/ Virtual Stamp Covers/ LOTTERY STAMP FANTASY




ITCHY HOLLER RADIO MISSIONARY POSTAGE OF BINKEL COUNTY
the Scarabeus Binkel Rescue Mission

The map on this stamp cover shows the projected route of the Scarabeus Binkel Rescue Mission. Scarabeus, formerly the sheriff of Binkel County, had gone on a voyage of discovery to the far off Barbaru Coast in Eastern Amphora.

Reports came that he was lost at sea. Thus ensued a local effort back home to rescue Scarabeus.

His cousin, Ned Digby, who was DJ at the Itchy Holler Radio Station, championed the missionary effort. There were seven Digby Brothers. Ned remained at home, but six of the younger brothers set forth a fleet of ships to the Barbaru Coast.

WHEN ITCHY HOLLER BROKE AWAY FROM BINKEL COUNTY

For a short time the community of Itchy Holler had a number of 'Secessionists' who sought independence from Binkel County. This local post stamp by Binky McTool is an example of productions from their post office.

When the Itchy Holler Radio Station began it's Rescue Mission efforts to find Scarabeus Binkel, lost at sea during his voyages of discovery, the Secessionist movement lost steam....and people wanted to join up with their kinfolk in Binkel County. 

Thus ended the issues of this short-lived local post.

HOW AELEURUS WAS TRANSFORMED

Pappy Pete, a longtime resident of the Moon, was proud possessor of an antique flintlock rifle, belonging to his grandfather on Earth. Inadvertently, when he was working as custodian on the Warponaughtic Transformer (or Time Machine), that some bear grease from his rags was contacted by Aelurus when preparing for his first mission.

When in deep timespace, Aelurus's DNA was totally scrambled with bear DNA, and Aelurus returned to the moon as a Werebear.

For purposes of his own well being, Aelurus was transferred to the Moonton Zoo, where he wrote few of the letters seen here from his cell.

The Zoomorphic Postal Rate was developed just for Aelurus's postal needs, seeing his poverty after being laid off from the National Warponaughtic and Space Administration. But also to provide a new lucrative venue for the Moonton Philatelic Sales Agency, who knew a good thing when they saw it. LOL
