About Me

Hello: Swap Bot friends, I live on the south end of Vancouver Island BC Canada. "My Etsy Store" above is my wish-list...

Updated Postcard info: The absolute worst mail delivery service seems to be between Canada and the United States !!!

I find the amount of non-raters is a continual thorn in my side and I am quite discouraged with Swap Bot. I have recently joined Postcrossing and I look forward to not having to track others down for a simple rating. Thank you to those who take the time and are considerate enough to rate. You are the best!!!

For POSTCARD SWAPS : please send naked(stamped&posted)... ...Please put the date on the PC... If you dont put the swap name on: I cannot rate you!

NON-RATERS: Please just give a rating already... "The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps.

Comment: There are not enough hearts!!! This one is going in my Moon Landing collection. I was lucky enough to be gifted one of the postcards you mention. The local high school Theater Arts teacher was involved in the early lunar program. Gary was the test subject for the Apollo space suits. He was also one of the folks who mailed postcards for Aldrin. Years ago, when he and I were in a local theater production together, he gave me one of his postcards and an envelope with all three astronauts signatures! They are prized possessions. I have been lucky here in Texas, since so many of the men and women from the Apollo program retired to our area.
Response: Hi Stephanie oh wow...my mouth just fell open when I read you were gifted with one of those PCs...Unreal! I'm so happy for you ... what a lovely treasure to have and all that personal history behind it. when I read your profile and I had the stamps so it was obvious to me what kind of illustration I wanted. Then I did some research and read about the PC's..so thanks to you I gained some little known knowledge :) Thank you for your rating with heart and your generous words I enjoyed hearing about Gary. Happy September peace love light

Comment: Thanks for the fun PC and the quote. I was just reading about the pre-Columbia Chinese shipwrecks on Vancouver Island and evidence of survivors settling up the rivers from there. I find it interesting that we still credit Columbus with discovering North America when we know he had seen a Chinese map, so he already knew Where it was. Actually, I don’t know how anyone can “discover” a place that already has people living there.
Response: Hi Neal , thank you for the rating with heart and your interesting words. Are you referring to 1421: The Year China Discovered the World by Gavin Menzies? I think I will give it a read. Happy September swapping. Enjoy the Harvest Full Moon tonight. peace love light

Hello! The resend for International Cut & Paste made it. It is an awesome card.

Keep your chin up!

Eeeee!!!! Got your RAK!! THANK YOU!!!! My mailbox has been so droopy for months and I loved it! Can you PM me your address again so I can send you some? I have fairy pcs right now!!!

banjobraids on Aug 15, 2019:

THANK YOU so much for this RAK card!!! It's incredible. It's so ME. I can't stop looking at all the tiny things. These turtle (tortoise?) stamps are so beautiful, too. One of my favorite things to do near here is visit the turtles that swim around in a pond. This has been a difficult week and your card really brightened it, thank you :):):) Happy swappping and happy summer :):):)

A RAK! Cool. My first. And you read my profile. Thanks for sending me one of my favourite (yet confusing -- the difference between tartan and plaid) things.

Itti on Jul 10, 2019:

Just wondered if, given your username, you might be interested in joining our reptile & amphibian group, Scales 'n' Tails. I've sent you an invite just in case, no worries if it's not your thing!

Thank you so much!!! And now have a lovely day with lots of sunshine in your letterbox, too!

Thank you for the postcard. I love that Victorians offer gardenias as a way to say "I think you're lovey", such a nice thing to do and thank you very much. I also love the fact that you used gardenia postage stamps, very nice added touch. Happy swapping and I hope the sun is shining brightly down upon you.

I am having a hard time consistently tracking too. I am totally with you! We can do this!
