Comment: Ahh… to have an eleven-year-old around the house! When I want that feeling, I just invite my two grown sons over - some things never change!!!! Thank you for the BEST ever PC. It felt like Nancy Drew time. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely envelope - I like the flying envelopes! Have a great week :)

roxswapbot rated for Recycle / Reusable Bag Swap on Oct 20, 2015
Comment: The 10 years Cover to Cover tote arrived, it must be a bookstore tote! Thank you. I'm sorry you paid so much in postage. May I suggest the Canada Post dimensions and a postal scale? Let me know if you'd like to know more (ie: this swap may have only costed $2.95 at most instead of $14.47). Take care fellow Canadian swapper! ~* The Liberals won!
Response: yes, it's my fave little used book store ... plus they sell K-Cup which makes me love them more! and yes, i was a bit taken aback with the postage cost, oh well. Yay Liberals - i was glued to cbc.ca all night, shouting "go red team, go red power rangers!" lol

sweetsexyvicky rated for I LOVE THE 80s Penpals :) on Oct 1, 2014
Comment: How could I forget my CPKs? I had two, a regular one and a premie. I liked your letter, we had quite a few things in common. My bedding was Strawberry Shortcake though. I got it for my 5th birthday, and we're about to do the same for my little one, only she's getting Monster High. Times have changed. BUT... I had a computer in the 80s! I remember too that Christimas of 89 or January of 90 was when I conned my grandma into getting me Prodigy, which was pre pre pre AOL. That was awesome.
Response: did you have that giant plastic strawberry "house" toy that Strawberry Shortcake lived in, the one with the carrying handle? i loved that thing!

Comment: Thank you so much for my little parcel of wonderfulness! I came home (after being away for a few days) and sat in the living room chatting to my flatmate for half an hour and then went through to my room to see it sitting on my bed ;D so excited! It's funny that we both got each other things for our feet :] The library I work at re-opens on Monday so I'm going to wear the funky socks as it is a special ocassion :) Thanks for the tea, postcard (up on the kitchen wall) and the LITTLE LEGO LISA! So cool <3 I recently started to collect these- now I have Milhouse, Ralph & Lisa- they are like a collection on their own! :) Thanks again Ami!
Response: i'm collecting the Simpsons LEGO too, i have 7 out of the 16 so far ... i might have to turn to eBay to complete my set! this was a great swap, i'm definitely looking forward to the next <3 whenever you're up for it :)
Comment: This time I got the card and I totally love it! THANKS! Hugs
Response: YAY!!! i'm so glad something finally reached you :) take care

Comment: Sorry for rating late - unexpected travel and going through my mail took time and I missed this one. Love the NRM PC with a dog - too cute. Spring has barely been here as well - every time we get a warm day then it goes back to cold - last Saturday 75 - then Monday SNOW !! Take care, Annette

Hiya. I got your letter about your super secret summer project and it was not what I expected but not in a bad way! I am crossing my fingers it works out for you. P.S. The thing you are doing--I didn't learn it until I was 25! So you are not alone!
