Happy Swapping!

NOTE: A grateful shout-out to a couple of our WIYM Mail Call regulars: **June @devilspigeonhole and Mona @sunshinesuperman ** -- who kindly supplied your host with some gorgeous mailing labels for use on the bonus mail sent to all of you -- these labels were featured on the bonus mail for the WIYM Mail Call for May that just went out! These labels were really super, much-appreciated and put to good use, thank you both so much!

Stamp shown is Scott 1490: collection mailbox -- one of a series of several stamps showing US postal workers on the job, issued by US postal service 30 April, 1973 -- 41 years ago - when first class postage within US was just 8 cents (it is 49 cents now or a "forever" stamp)

THIS SWAP NOW CLOSES TUESDAY, JUNE 10 -- Due to the recent switch by this website to GMT (timezone that is currently 4 hours later than previous time zone used, eastern US time zone), I moved the closing sign-up by one day to accommodate anyone who might try to join the swap on Monday evening

A quick shout-out to the WIYM members trying out this swap for the first time, great to have you join us -- and also great to see so many regulars in the swap -- this is going to be a fun, fun swap!

FYI - Partners will be assigned on June 10 at around midnight in US central time zone

Also a reminder that since this site is now using GMT for its standard time - be sure you get your swap marked as sent on or before June 23 -- for those in USA -- plan to get it marked by 6 p.m. in the evening, no matter where in USA you live and you should be okay. PLEASE -- let's not be hard-nosed or petty with each other about the send date if anyone should happen to miss the new cutoff by a few hours as we all get accustomed to the change to GMT.

(A lot of swappers are in the routine of marking swaps in the evening that have been sent out that day -- and if it is the last day to send, it will appear to be a day "late.")

Disregard above info on GMT - this site is NOW using west coast US time.
