About Me

I am 62 years old and work for a restaurant supply co. I am married with 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren. I like westerns and listen to music on the way into work. I collect postmarks, postcards, stamps, old books and lots and lots more. I am a member of quite a few postcard robins. I have alot more regular size cards than continentals. I house any postcards in file drawers and have a few topical collections in 3 ring binders.When I lived in Rhode Island I collected old bottles. Up there I dug them up. Here in Texas there aren't as many good digging sites. I like older postcards but collect animals, banks, airplanes, automobiles, ships , trains, large letter, court houses, sports stadiums, military, high schools, libraries, lighthouses, weapons, museum exhibits, exotic animals, minerals, books on pc, pictured stamps and postmarks, covered bridges.I am a member of a postcard club.we meet once a month. I have a couple of 10 drawer file cabinets in which I house my collection.

About Me

I also have collected coins for decades. I put this collection on the back burner until the coordinator of coin hideout renewed my interest in coins and got me interested in banknotes. still a beginner but enjoying her swaps immensely. Some of my coins that I've had for a long time I had to research to tell what country they came from. The same with some of my stamps - I love geography and have had to look up many countries to find out which continent they are on. I do not collect stamps by topic. I collect by country. In stamp albums the countries are listed alphabetically,and then the stamps oldest first up to the date that the album was published. The only unfortunate thing is that the albums I have are older with no pages of the newer stamps. I house those in vario pages.

About Me

I have just recently added foreign currency to my collecting interests. Swap bot got me started. I used to collect matchcovers, I still have them but I don't see many around anymore.I stopped collecting vintage paperbacks - my wife said our abode looked more like a warehouse than a home. I do still have a lot of nice old hardbacks.Update - am now64. Son graduated UT - bachelors degree with honors. Now at U of Chicago for Masters. Has written a book - Our Story - if you like to read please research. pc preferences - Birds, transportation,L.L., Texas, high schools, courthouses, libraries, greetings from, maps, lighthouses ,etc

Comment: Thank you for the lovely note, Marc! I haven't been trading stamps lately because money has been tight for international swaps, but I just got hired at a new job, so I hope to start trading again here soon. We've had a lot of snow here lately, it's been snowing on and off and sticking around for about a week now! Thank you for the stamps!!

Happy Monday from the NYUP group!

Marc, Thank you sending the October WTA envie. Imagine my surprise when it came in January! I really appreciate you taking the time to follow up on this. I love both pcs, the cute cat notecard, and the washi. Oh, since you mentioned it... washi should be sent on a slick surface so it can all be used (a playing card is perfect... any size). When you put it on a regular cardstock surface, the first two passes tend to stick to the cardstock, rendering it unusable. Thanks again! You gave me a nice 2022 surprise 😮😀
