I went to the exhibition on Charles and Ray Eames' work yesterday.
Of course it's mainly furniture and they designed a fabulous house, but there is more.
I never would have known without this exhibit.
They were very talented and humorous people, they wrote each other and friends great letters with little drawings and different type.
I love this one

I didn't resolve the puzzle, but it's funny isn't it? I think only artistic people appreciate this.

FOTO,

 That is so cool.  Thanks for sharing.  I did read the first sentence as "I have been thinking of you (greatly???). " After that, it sems a mystery to me.

What a great way to wake up my brain to start the day.

 ;D Mea, I was just having a quick look at it. I got the same as you, but couldn't decide if that was a gate (late-ly), or a wall (all). Either works I suppose.

I remember doing this as a youngster! Encrypted letters...very spy-like.  :2funny:

I love the doodles. Might save it and see how far I can get with it.  :detective:

Thanks Foto, exercise for our artistic brains!  :clap:
Cheers, Val

o, I don't know about that, fact is that I react very quick yes. I used to drive my son crazy with my referring to songs. For example, he tells me X was wearing a yellow t-shirt and I would go "we all live in a yellow submarine"
And it goes on and on, all day long.
