ABU AMMARION [Okay, lots of punning in here. Keep in mind that Wayne's real first name is the manly "Marion."]
nicotiana tabacum [Easy enough.]
Morrison [Wayne's real surname; his parents were alliterators.]
CHISHOLM TRAILMIX [Possible new tradename.]
The reverse of the card appears below. kiyotei has returned a copy of the "Seneca Carving" postage stamp I sent to him with my last mailing...but he's modified it again, given it a title, and turned it into a small comics panel! The rest of the card is decorated lushly. (I'm always amazed by how kiyotei turns a simple card into something of a mailart grabbag on two surfaces.)
We have the address label to me (which he has turned into a cute firetruck responding to an emergency, which commemorates the Fire Department of New York [FDNY]), a Matangi Island Coffee Cat stamp, and a few glyphs made to resemble cattle brands. The green one clearly spells out "John," the red one appears to be "Wayne," but any particular meaning (beyond shape) of the other two escapes me.
