4/30/2017 - These 1's are a Swap-Bot glitch!
If anyone would ever like a slam made for them, just pm me your details/what name you'd like on it - address... etc.. I'll include it in the next group swap I am in (the swaps come out every two weeks) 7/3/15
You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom!
I hope you will make good use of it.
If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”
— John Adams
Dear Swappers, Please Read: If I haven't rated you yet, it's because I have not had a chance to get to my rented post box. Their hours aren't always my hours. So... hang tight, and I'll rate when I get downtown to pick up my stuff. Thank you -
Oh - also -- If you ever receive a postage due from me - plmk and I will reimburse Immediately..
Sorry, but, due to the horrendously expensive overseas postage prices, I've pretty much discontinued my international swapping. (7/2014)
Firstly - The only things that I take all that seriously are, the Ideals of Heaven, and, the Foundational Principles of these once Sovereign States. -- Everything else is pretty much fun and games.
Then .. for the S-B stats :
I'm a definite night-owl.. I've not yet out-grown yakking all night in coffee shops, about philosophy, exchange of view-points, ideals, socio-political ideas, every-day chit-chat, and, whatever people at the table are into.

Oh, I'm not too crazy about Mary Engelbreit, rose decor, oven gloves, lips designs, fringe on towels and such, dollar store & such stores, empty mailboxes, vanilla scents, soccer, Starbucks, blood & gore or nudity.... And, I can't eat sugar... sigh...
Also not crazy about a picture, with a word telling what the picture is - ie: a picture of an apple on a towel, and, the word " apple " on it... Like, I can't figure out it's an apple? I guess I'd rather see pictures than words...
My A, B, C likes, will probably give you a direction in my postcard Likes.
I am not a serous collector of postcards - Altho I do get some that are hard to part with - I do prefer to see pictures with no writing on front - But - that is not written in stone - It's just a preference. I know those are difficult to find - but - If you do have some that you'd like to send, please do.
I also like street scenes - I like to see what a town looks like ... but I like all - I've gotten some I never knew existed - Sooo... Send anything - I just love them all - Well, except those art cards, like Still Life and such - I already know what great art looks like ...
Update 5/2016: I have numerous requests for pc's from several people I know who do collect pc's -- If you can accommodate the subjects below for them, please do - I'll save them up, and give them as a surprise Christmas or birthday present Thank you so much :
Ghost towns, covered bridges, state parks, interesting architecture and buildings in small town America, coffee/tea cards, anything having to do with yarn crafts no matter where in the world they are from, violins, pianos, books, elephants, - and - ANYTHING related to Paris.
1/28/2017 -- Thank you, Everyone who sent those pc's -- I gave them to Karla and her daughter for Christmas - They were So surprised - and LOVED them! Thanks again !
If you happen to have any slams, fb's, bags. or a few x-slips, gathering dust, and want to move them along - Do tuck them into any swap you might send - or - just send them anytime. I play them and move them along quickly.
