An Odd Ball Request

I know this going to sound crazy...but if possible, I would LOVE very much a teaspoon of "earth" (in a small well sealed plastic baggie or paper envie) from where you live... seriously. I started collecting earth/sand/dirt back when I did Pocket Letters. It's fascinating to me. I have earth from places like~ *Disneyland in Anaheim. *Gem filled dirt from Morenci, AZ. *Rich/dark soil with tiny shells in it from Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. *Lethbridge, AB, Canada Thank you in advance!!!

Comment: I don't know what to say except for "Wow"! I was really impressed with what you came up for regarding this swap. I have just begun to be a tea drinker so your thrift store find is just perfect & the pin is nice, too. Your thinking outside of the box was really inventive; thank you so much!!

thelocalman rated for What's on the Menu? on Jul 30, 2018
Comment: This arrived so fast!! Loved the stuff in the Potato place, the hot dogs look delicious.Jonny's reminds me of a pub I go to, which is also sports related, and one of my favorite places to go to. I loved that in the Tower there is so much choice about different meals and beverages, we don't have that much here in Bulgaria haha and also I saw the "baklava"offered as a party tray, which we have here and it's a local dish. I'm dying to one day go to a restaurant in America and try some food as I generally love to try differend dishes when I travel! Thank you very much for sharing, it was very intresting to me :) P.S. Loved the writing paper ^^
Response: Because the United States is made up of immigrants from all over the world and (in order to make a living) many have opened restaurants, serving authentic recipes from their homelands. We are a "melting pot"... and it's a beautiful thing. ❀ (My family immigrated from Italy, Sicily & Poland. My Husband is French Canadian & German). I truly hope you can visit some day!!

Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I am actually from Michigan, although I've never been up to Mackinac Island, so this card was a treat. :)
Response: I love that whole area! Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City/St.Ignace.. and especially the Mighty Mac. I'm not a Yooper, but I came from a long line of them. The U.P. definitely has my heart. 😊
