from Richard Canard


My friend Lisa the technowizard says the same thing as Richard Canard -- that everybody sending just one postcard a week would change the world.

It might even turn the economy around. The postcard salespeople in the Louisville area are certainly getting bigger bonuses since I discovered this life form. It's not just my mail art cards that I send; I use a lot of standard tourist-type postcards, too. Especially for international exchanges, I like the particularity of a card showing a map of Kentucky or the Muhammad Ali Center or the Belle of Louisville or -- one of my favorites -- the bat factory. It's all good, but Richard's are some of the best. His conversation and his ingredients are his artistry - -how cool is that?

What is this bat factory??? Sounds fascinating!

Heck yeah on the sentiments.

The Louisville Slugger factory and museum are in downtown Louisville. We went on a tour a few years ago and got to see how the bats are manufactured. You can also buy a bat with your name (or the date or whatever else you may want) on it!

And, to actually ANSWER your question, the factory makes baseball bats!
