Comment: Hi Mindy! See it made it safely, just took the scenic route due to all that "other" mail! LOL! I am also having a hard time with how quickly the year has gone by - yikes! Thanksgiving in a few weeks and than the C word - double yikes! LOL! I have not see the "Cool Kids" or Station 19" - what are they? Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I just got the resend and I wish I could post a picture of it . It's so funny. It came in a USPS body bag.There is a giant bite taken out the bottom left side.
The person from the mail room was cracking up saying that someone must have been real hungry to take a bite out of NJ. LOL
Response: Oh no!!!! That makes me so sad. Ok I sent u my email address. I really wish they would take better care of the mail. Sigh makes me sad they keep going up in prices but can damage our mail so badly.
Comment: Loved the postcard and the vintage stamp! Thank you<3 Enjoy your new car! What a long day you had!
Response: yes it was long! and since i have been married although they have been new to me this is only the 2nd new new car i have had! glad u liked the stamp and pc! have a good wknd! thanks for 5 And <3
Comment: Thank you for the recipe. Yours is a little different than how I make mine. I think yours is easier! Going to try it soon.
Response: Love love easy recipes. I have been doing it forever. Lol. My husband is my second husband and I accumulated two teenagers when we married and I had to learn quick and multitude for those two. Then now we have a 9 yr old so I am still having trouble downsizing my casseroles but we always have leftovers. I end up freezing but hey work out great for when people have babies or lose someone. Anyway have a good day! And thanks for 5 and ❤️
Comment: Absolutely love this! I'm going to try to find a place I can display this "coffee or die!"
Response: So glad it made it ! My hubby has def embraced my quirkiness and kinda laughs when we get cardboard in house and I promptly say wait don't throw it out it'll make a perfect cardboard pc. I loved the coffee or die one. So glad it made it.
Comment: Hi Mindy! Thanks for the fun chunk - I was very impressed that it went through the mail with the jewels on it! Very cool! Hope your son enjoyed his first day as a 4th grader! School starts here next Thursday -my besties granddaughter said no one could use the S word until August! LOL! Kids are such a hoot! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: so glad it made it yay!!!!! we just got one from u today to. watching gone w/ the wind with our son , his first time
Response: Yea the post office I go to ran out of postcard stamps so I hadn't to improvise. I am glad u love it. I knew exactly what I was gonna do with that blue moon cardboard. We loves to drink it and I knew it would make an awesome pc. Have a great day!
Comment: Thanks for the T.A.R.D.I.S. postcard! I'm also a big fan of David Tennant, though it's hard for me to choose a favourite Dr between him and Matt Smith. I didn't like Smith at first, but then he really grew on me. Though that's probably more to do with his companions; I LOVE Amy and Rory!
Response: how do ya feel bout the new dr 13? my son is not to sure bout a woman dr lol
Comment: Thank you Mindy & Micah for the happy story of breakfast your son made for you. Wow, even bowl of cereal & juice, that's healthy. I eat that each morning myself. And thank you for the Indiana state bird - a handsome red Cardinal.
Comment: I love the Spongebob & Stamp stickers! Thanks for the cute PC ❤️😁
Response: The Mickeys won't stick and I hope at least one made it to ya. I do not know if they're too old or they don't like cardstock. Won't be using them anymore. So glad it made it and u love it. Have s good day
Comment: Star Wars crackers makes me laugh. My husband and I are still [amazed by? shocked at? mortified about?] talking about seeing Star Wars FRUIT at the grocery store!
Response: honestly if they hadnt been bogo we prob wouldnt have snagged them but my hubbys getting into seeing the different chunks we get to so now we r almost on a mission to find different stuff that will make cool chunks of cardboard postcards. we have a nutty butty one with ferdinand the bull on it for next go around (its a cute animated film) have a good wknd!
Comment: Thank you for the cool Star Wars postcard! Do you like Star Wars? My mom once bought my uncle a Star Wars beach towel for Christmas one year. He thanked her but had to explain to us that Star Wars and Star Trek aren't the same thing (He's a Trekkie!).
Response: Love Star Wars. And there is such a big difference with Star Trek and Star Wars. We love Star Wars and my son loves it. We take him to all the new ones. Glad u liked it. He picked out those cheese it's too
Comment: Thank you for sending yours early! It served as a guideline. 😀
Response: So so glad it made it. Which one did I send u. I love looking for unique boxes that I know will make awesome cardboard postcards. My mailman actually thought I was crazy sending those out. Went to a different post office. Have a great sat!
Comment: I can't believe how long this took (and totally not blaming you one iota!) Thank you for staying on top of it and offering a resend. The big red post mark of March 16, 2018 USPS - 30259 is huge proof of when it was sent on its way. Where it went from there to end up here is a complete mystery though!!! Thank you again.
Comment: Thank you for the little squirrel. It reminds me of the one we had back in 1966/67. 2 tiny babies had fallen out of the nest in a storm one day. My husband brought them home and I managed to save one and she grew to be a really pretty red squirrel. When our daughter began crawling and getting around on her own we gave her to our landlady who had moved into a house and was able to take care of her better than we were at that time. I just noticed the Copyright for this picture was 1946 which is the year before I was born. Very interesting.
Comment: We eat a lot of cereal here. I have enough pieces cut to make cards for several years without saving any more. First day of Spring and it only got into the 40's here today. Last week was nice and in the 70's. That's Kansas for you.
Response: Kansas and Georgia's weathers similiar. We get 70 degrees then 40 degrees. We also have had tornadoes coming thru lately. And the pollen is unreal. I have some chunks cut out for next go round of cheese it's Star Wars we found and recipes off my canned tomatoes boxes. My hubby had been laughing lately for my new fetish. Ha. Thanks and glad it made it.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard :0) It arrived today :0) I have a son who is 9 and two cats also! If your son likes exchanging postcards my guy would love to as well! Just a thought if you guys are interested :0)
Response: I can tell believe it took a month to reach ya. That's just crazy. We would love to penpal with yall. So glad it made it.
Comment: Thank you for the Gallows postcard, it's perfect as I saw such things yesterday at the local Pirate Renaissance Faire that my husband and I attended in full costume! I hope you are having a lovely day!
Comment: It was in the pile:) Mike and I were just talking about how many things are filmed in Georgia. There's got to be some good industry incentives. Not to mention how pretty it is, though I haven't been since 2001.
Response: yay so glad it made it have a good day! we love love all the movies filmed here.
Comment: Thanks for sharing. And just so you know...this was only due on the 10th, and you've sent 3 messages for me to rate it already. It hasn't even been a week!
Some of us have a busy life outside of Swap-Bot and don't get on daily. Work, school, pets, family, etc. You know? You may want to ease up a just a little and give some more time before freaking out over it. I wasn't avoiding rating, just living. ha ha! I hope you understand. I always rate what I receive, but sometimes it takes a little time to get there. As for your answers...I LOVE the Good Doctor! That show makes me tear up so often. :)
Response: I love the good doctor too. Sorry about hounding ya. Have u seen this is us it's a good tear jerker too. Thank you so much. And so sorry bout the hounding have a good day.
Comment: Hi! Did you enjoy the snow? Chances are good that we will have a white Christmas here in Connecticut... but after that I'm ready for spring!
Response: After spending time in upstate my for a couple years when I was a teenager I can live wo snow. It's pretty but so rare down here it's ok if y'all keep it up there. Lol. Glad the card made it. Merry Christmas

Comment: Thank you for the Indian Summer card of the North Georgia Mountains. Up until Monday we had the same colours here but night frost has taken care of that :( Winter setting in!
I like listening to book podcasts among which "What should I read next" and "From the front porch" are Georgia based/oriented. Like!
Comment: Great vintage card from Hurst's castle! Thank you.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard! We got a tiny bit of wind and a week of rain but nothing bad. Depending on how much more of a westerly turn Irma takes we might get a bit more from it. Poor Micah! We've been through that several times with our kids and it's no fun! Hope he's better by now!
Response: hoping on just rain here! we should be far enough way from coast that we shouldn't get anything but just rain.thank u so much forchecking on Micah. u are so sweet! thanks for rerouting that errant pc too hopefully it makes it. lol.have a great day! on our way to take M to school.

Response: thank u so much and maybe mark em? i am so glad it got there!!! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for the Georgia postcard with all the beautiful homes! I love touring all those historic homes. We have several in Galveston (an island about 55 miles from here) and even though I've seen them all, I still love going through that area when we go down there.
Big Texas hugs for you and Micah!
Response: So glad it made it. Micah starts school next Friday. Wow what happened to summer? Have u always lived in Texas? Ever been to ga? We gots friends in tomball.
Comment: Thank you for the PC! I'm heading upstate to Hudson Valley next month for a girl's only get-a-way weekend to celebrate my birthday. That is about as far upstate as I go, unless I'm driving through on the way to the Finger Lakes or Canada.
Response: Enjoy! Hope u liked the bday stamp bonus.
Comment: Thank you for the stunning view of Seattle, one of the cities on my to-visit list and new home of some good friends from college, and the lovely floral heart sticker! I agree, it is good to see familiar names among partners :) Happy Monday!
Comment: this is a really cool card! End of school for kids here is June 16 so it's around finals right now. Also, no kids but I do have pets! a dog & rabbits :) I've ordered from zazzle before but they've always been glossy.. yours wasn't! I wonder if that is an option now??
Response: I have ordered from zazzle before too and was surprised to see them non glossy too. I fell in love with this card and loved this one. Hated to give it away. Lol. So glad u liked it. Have a good day. Thanks for awesome rating
Comment: Hello! Thank you so much for the vintage restaurant postcard! I enjoy these types of postcards as they take you back to another time that is so different yet not so relatively long ago! Thanks again!
Comment: I just got your postcard today! It was postmarked May 2nd. We are practically neighboring states so I have no idea why it took 15 days to get here. But thanks so much for the Pearl Harbor postcard!
Response: THAT IS CRazy that took two weeks to get to u. But glad it made it
Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for the wonderful postcard. I also thank you for writing a heartfelt message. It truly means a lot to me. Congrats on your sons Holy Communion. =) I still remember mine that seems ages ago. I will be praying for your family and your oldest. Thank you and him for his service to our country. He is truly a blessing.
Response: I think I sent ya two separate postcards round same time. Hope the other one makes it soon
Comment: I love the style and colors of this postcard! :D And I understand about the weather; it's been rather blustery off and on here, too, when it hasn't been scorching hot. Phew! :) Thanks for the PC and nice note!
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the beautiful postcard of Pikes Peak, love it. I enjoy reading Debbie Macomber, also Amish novels. I'm sorry you are unhappy with swap-bot, not all the swaps are perfect but I enjoy hearing from people from all over the USA and world and what their lives are like. Thanks again, Take care, Judy
Comment: Seffner is about 15-20 minutes from Tampa. Your "30 mins outside Atlanta" had me wondering where you were, but having looked at the map, I think I've travelled past every side but yours, lol. NW, NE, SE... no SW. Either way, Atlanta traffic itself makes me want to cry so I drive around it when possible. Thanks for the PC!
Response: Atl traffic drives me batty too. I try staying away from it. With the recent collapse of 85 it's just crazy. I know where Tampa is and now have a better idea of where u r at. Have a good day
Comment: I got the postcard, thanks! I saw that you already joined the next swap, please remember to use more than one stamp (so don't use the international stamps but smaller national stamps to add up to the total value)!
I think it's great that you get hot weather, over here it's currently rainy :( Ah well, April weather hast been known to often suck :)
Response: So glad it made it and usually yes I do add more sorry bout hat! Thanks for the 5 nad next time round I will add the extra stamps.
Comment: Hi Mindy,
Thank you for the fun recipe postcard. I live in the city of Alamo about 250 miles south of San Antonio. If you thought San Antonio was hot, we are about 10 degrees hotter.
Comment: Thank you for t he postcard of Duff's virginia ham. It brought back childhood memories. I remember my aunt giving my grandmother one of these hams. She soaked it in a big tub of water for a week changing water everyday because if the saltiness of the ham. We didn't get many. My grandmother said it was too much work just to bake a ham. Shirley
Response: I am so glad. I have never had one but I just loved the postcard. Have a good day.
My fiance and I are obsessed with Grey's Anatomy! I wish I could be a SAHM. My fiance and I are working on that right now. Our daughter is 8, going to be 9 in July! Thank you for the postcard.
I love black and white postcards, especially of architecture and old homes. This fit in with my tastes so well! Thank you!
Another swapper said she's heard of Athens, GA as well, so I thought it was funny to get 2 postcards mentioning Athens, GA on the same day! LOL
Hope you have an awesome day as well!
Response: Love putting smiles on peeps faces. I think I either have another pc coming to u or u have one coming to me. Either way so so happy. Have u heard of Athens ga. It's where b52s are from and where university of ga is located.
Comment: Beautiful postcard! Thanks so much. I have always wanted to visit Georgia. Hope the weather is beautiful for you!
Response: the weathers been crazy this week for sure. we have had 70 degree weather lately but this week high will be near 66 and the low will be 26 ,..eek looking forward to temps near 70 . wish i t would stay 70 all year round

Response: So glad it made it. Happy we both got a card from one another today. Have a good day

Response: Thank you Mimi! Today is my bday and not sure what it holds. I woke up to breakfast in bed. Yours sounds amazing.
Comment: Belated thank you for this charming card of the Arnold-Arnall-Shapiro Home! I have always wanted a home with a verandah... but I also love living in a city, hmm. I am glad I found this card :) Hope you have a good week!
Comment: Mindy & Micah, thank you for the interesting postcard of the parking garages. I don't think I would like to go up in one of those. As my husband said "It would take ten miles just park your car". Shirley
Comment: Thank you for sharing the idyllic view of Hanauma Bay, bright stickers, wonderful Dr. Seuss quote, and the new seashell postage with me! :) p.s. I have been fighting allergies and cleaning my house and looking for your PC; I will let you know by tonight if it needs a resend (although I know you always send something)! Thank you for your patience <3
Response: i love the new postcard stamps!!!!! so glad it made it! i know that sometimes the p.o. loses our precious postcards. ugh...talk soon...
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful Georgia postcard! I love waterfalls and would like to see this one in person. Guess I'll add it to my ever growing list of places to go and things to see. LOL! We just need a year long tour of the US.
Response: Yea glad it made it. I left a message on ur wall. Was your pc late or a resend ? Thanks. Hugs
Comment: Yay ðŸ˜Š My first card form you this time. Beautiful white 1850's home with a picket fence. I use to dream about owning a home like this with a couple of rocking chairs on the porch and large fern baskets and chimes hanging. With Snowball hydrangeas and agapanthus planted along the fence. One can dream, thank you for the PCâ¤!
Comment: Thank you for the pc. It is warm all year round here. Often in the summer it doesn't even get below 90 for a low temp. The winters are gorgeous. Usually upper 60s to mid 70s for highs. The lows range from upper 30s to upper 50s.
Comment: LOVE the US Map PC :-) The city name Sandwich always gets attention. So I previously looked up the history. I wish we had big 'Sandwich Day' celebration. There is a #NationalSandwichDay - so it fits. Our Sandwich does relate back to the Earl Of Sandwich. However, our city was named because one of the founders was from Sandwich, NH, which was directly named in honor of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, said to be the inventor of the sandwich (lol). As a side note, the most popular city of Sandwich is in MA and it is named for the seaport of Sandwich, Kent, England. Happy New Year.
Take care, Annette
Response: I have never visited nyc. Your trip sounds fun!!!
Thanks for the fun facts.
Comment: Mindy, thank you for the St. Simons lighthouse postcard! Ive never been there but was just telling my husband a few days ago how much I'd love to visit there! When I go I will have to get some suggestions from you!
Comment: im giving a 5 only because it was sent. may i suggest you DO NOT send a photo as a post card. it got wet and i cant even tell what the front was or what the back even said. all i can read is by 12/18.
Comment: Heheh, I like the coincidence of our postcards coming and going :) Thank you for the neat Newnan-Coweta Historical Museum card -- I am fondly reminded of summer roadtrips to National Historic Landmarks and museums with my family. I can't believe how fast this year is flying! Hope you and your family have a good Christmas weekend and New Year's celebration!
Response: Have a merry Christmas. So glad you got a postcard at same time I did. Really enjoying swapbot. This year has flown by.
Comment: HI! Thanks for the peaches card....just fyi, and it's not your fault, but it was all torn up, I think because it was on picture paper maybe? the picture was all smeared and on the back the plastic was peeling off and your words were smudged. Maybe print them out on cardstock or something a tad sturdier? Just in case you get a crabby swapper who rates you low....All that being said, thanks for the card, I do enjoy getting mail from you :)
Response: Yay! I Am so sorry the post office ruined it. I can probably print on cArdstock. I love when u send mail to us too. Have a great day. Btw did u want me to send a resend? Please send me a pm to let me know sweetie.
Comment: HA! You stumped me for a bit on the name of this swap! I thought it wasn't on the PC, and yet it was! Good Job! So glad you were my partner! Thanks for hosting it and happy swapping to you.....
Response: Where did I put it??? I send so many out!!! Have a great day!
Comment: Hey Mindy! I absolutely LOVE<3 the postcard that you sent the recipe on! So cute and perfect for this swap! We are a crock-pot kind of family and I am looking forward to trying out the chicken & dumplings meal! It sounds great! Hi Micah! :)
Response: Yay! I know when I had teenagers in house and a little one just starting on solids this was easy. We Live on crockpot recipes too! I really enjoy having u for a partner.
Comment: Whohooo! My kiddos think they hit the jackpot with the goodies that showed up from you today! Thank you so much for bringing smiles to our afternoon! They love everything! Thank you for such a fun swap! It was great being your partner. :)
Response: yay!!! so happy!!! thank you to!!! i just sent u a postcard today too.
Comment: Thanks Mindy for sharing about Georgia and so glad that you are very happy there! I am sure it is wonderful to have warm temperatures all year round which we do not have here in Oregon. The sunset on the pc was simply amazing!
Comment: love this quote and so happy I finally found you is is very hard to find someone if no info (and it is easy to forget to add I always start with that at very top on my post cards and then user name at very bottom hearts for you
Comment: I hope you are the person who sent me the Cole-Roberts Home postcard! It's really nice, but it didn't have the swap name or your user name. I used to watch Johnny Carson ... He was always so funny. Thanks again.
Response: yes that was me . sorry I forgot my user name and swap name . glad u enjoyed pc.
