Comment: I believe women organized everything in the war effort, we are great at multi-tasking! I had several female vets as patients while doing homecare for the VA and they had the best stories! Thank you!
Comment: Thanks for another fantastic card! I love rainy days, so I'm jealous. We've been having an unusually cold winter. It's nice to remember what winter is like -- we had 3 in a row that didn't count -- but it has been extreme.
Comment: Thank you, R & J. Asian elephants are special to me, having had one as a friend when I was with the circus, & having had many encounters with them when I lived in India. Love the maxi card & first day of issue cancellation.
Comment: Wow, thanks so much for the maxicard! The US doesn't make any so I love seeing some in the mail. And I really do love this card, thank you for picking something based on my likes! Merry Christmas to you!
Comment: Thank you! This is really a great first day issue card, love the image, and the stamp! I wish these were something the US did, our postal service seems to be behind so many other countries when it comes to post crossing :(
Comment: Hi Raoul & Jeanette, thank you for the Dr.Who PC,. Please remember to put entire swap name, (# 17 was missing) and it can be hard for me to find the swap to rate you. Sometimes I have more than one sci fi swap going at a time :) Happy Autumn swapping :)
Comment: Thanks for the great maxis', I like the man in the mail, a few years ago I would have said he found a cheap way to travel but--now when our post increasing price and slowing down -- it would be cheaper to get out of the box and fly!!
Comment: Raoul and Jeanette, thanks for the wonderful PC. Basically, yaoi could refer to any non heterosexual romance (sometimes there's even no romance, but close kinship, friendship and bonding). And otaku means hardcore anime/game fans. Thanks for your comments on my deviantart works, too. <3
Comment: Thank you for the Rhino PC. I hoped someone would send me this picture sometime. It's not really a hard subject. Quite a few animals were ONCE considered cryptids (eg: Gorilla's, Okapi, Platypus etc). What you write on the back of the PC can make the connection. Google "Former Cryptids" for ideas. Zazzle is a good place to find cryptid PCs. Regards Mark
Comment: Thanks for the postcard featuring Charles Bean. I did read up on him & found him interesting. I'd never heard of him before. I have a friend born in Tasmania; she has since moved to NZ and then to the US. In contrast to your chilly winter (we consider 10C chilly in our summer!), today we have 33C and humid! I hope you get to see the eclipse; we will be able to see 85%. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Hello, Raoul & Jeanette, and thanks for the postcard and kind words! So glad Swap-bot is the fun place it is, meeting such nice people as you two, from all over the world. Bundle up and stay warm!
Comment: Loved your maxi - thank you!! I love how everything looked i the old days ðŸ˜Š
I've got some regular b&w pcs but in maxis not, the maxis I have are in colour. So let me know if you want to swap a few ðŸ˜Š
Comment: Thankyou for the Mawson Huts Foundation postcard! I'd love to see Macquarie Island some day, but that might be a tad too ambitious. I never knew there was a Mawson Hut replica, I will definitely put it on my list for when I eventually visit Tassie :)
Comment: Thanks for another great card! And it's definitely close enough to black and white :) I've read a lot about World War I the last few years, so it's well timed. I also like the special postmark.
Comment: The red poppy was originally use to signify rembrance of fallen American soldiers during World War 1 (1914-1917). It was later adopted by several countries of the British Empire to remember fallen soldiers from any war. It holds special significance for the fallen soldiers of the Gallipoli campaign.
Comment: Thank you for the cool first day issue of the fancy vintage lady and bike! Love her dress but I would only be able to walk, not ride in it. It is fun being the swap coordinator because you can choose topics of interest!
Comment: It is an odd PC, indeed! The tree in the center is kinda cool, but then it is a mystery why it includes Italian, English, and Spanish with no reason why, seeing as it is from Australia. I'd say it fits the theme just fine! Happy New year!
Comment: I got my fantastic "animal" postcard today! Loved your note and loved that I received your first swap from Swap-Bot! I am new this year, too! One day, I would like to visit Australia, thanks again! PS: I just noticed the first day stamp - love it!
Response: Thanks for your nice note:) So glad you liked it! I have a few other similar brightly coloured "animal" cards to surprise people with...Raoul.
