    My only day off this week was today - At least I got the scans done. Wifey-poo is at school this evening so it will be another week before I can get translations done.

    So, perhaps Lars, you can get your wifey-poo to help out?

    Author is my far away friend and long-time associate Valantin Voronov. You may have met him in person at one of the collectors meetings in Moscow - along with my cap star-cockarde associate Denis Rodichev and a few others, like my photo girl Natasha Filipova.

    In any case, I extend warm birthday wishes to your wife.

    Regards,
    Richie

    Lars,

    Will you (or your wife) assist in translation? Or should I request my wife to do so?

    It would help educate others.
