About Me

HI, my name is Mark. I'm 54, married for 32yrs & we have 2 sons aged 30 & 21. I was born in the UK, but lived most of my life in Australia. Mostly in Western Australia, but we've also lived in Tasmania & Queensland. I enjoy outdoor activities such as canoeing/kayaking & bush walking (hiking), but due to long term health problems I'm not able to do these as often as I'd like. I like older films & TV shows. I like a wide variety of music, including folk from many countries, trad country, bluegrass, old-time R&R, classical, jazz & lounge. I also play guitar, uke, jews harp, kazoo & spoons (far from professional). I've also recently taken up the Mountain Dulcimer.
I collect postcards on themes of Traditional crafts/ lifestyles/ occupations ,Books/ Bookstores/ People reading/ Libraries (privatel or public)/ PCs signed by authors (any!) Unusual tourist attractions, Roadside oddities, Wooden Indians, Camper Vans, Museums (any kind), Ships (not military), Populated islands (no matter how small the population), Lighthouses, Aircraft (prefer pre 1980, non-military), Architecture (not religious Except Himalayan Monastaries), Musical instruments (the more unusual the better), Scenic postcards, Sci-Fi (Pre 1970), UFOs, Cryptozoology (eg: big foot, nessie, jackalope etc), Dinosaurs, Unusual wildlife, Volcano's,, Aurora Borealis/Australis, Unusual cloud formations (eg: Lenticular), Electrical Storms, Satellite Dishes/ Telescopes/ Observatories, Astro photography, Pyramids/sphinx, Interesting Geological Formations, Fossils, Cacti, Desert scenes, UNESCO, Meteorite Craters, NASA/ Space exploration, Scooters, Anything interesting! I like cards that show the way people live, including their homes.I prefer cards posted naked (never heard this term used in this context before. Hope I don't get arrested on my way to the post office!!!). I've collected postcards on & off (mostly on) for over 20 years & always do my best to send quality items to fellow collectors. I also collect souvenir magnets (Not flags) and Bookmarks. PLEASE NO OCCULT OR HALLOWEEN
