About Me

50 year old married pharmacist with two kids and two nephews we are raising. I've belonged to postcard exchange groups (at Yahoo) for fifteen years and used to own and/or moderate several myself. I like foreign, map, and animal postcards as well as military and automotive. I collect baseball caps and tee-shirts as well as postcards. By the way, I sponsor a lot of swaps on Swap-Bot, both in groups and individually. If you are ever flaked on contact me and I will be happy to angel for that swap.

I always rate. If I didn't rate you it's because I never received your swap.

One of the nice ladies on this site asked me to put the kids' ages on, so here goes: boy 20, boy 18 (12th grade), boy 17 (11th grade), girl 14 (8th grade).

My 14-year old daughter loves stickers and decorates all my envelopes and postcards with them. She even puts them on bill envelopes that are mailed. I told her that they probably go thru some kind of sorting machine and that people would probably never see them. She said "maybe someone would, like the mail carrier, and they would get a smile from them." We know all our mail carriers by name and speak to them when we see them.

Favorite Music

Rock, classical, c&w

Favorite Books

Picture books, seriously, those big coffee table books with large clear pictures. I have a lot of those with magazine photos like Look and Life and dozens with historic buildings and castles. I also collect foreign language dictionaries and baseball caps. I also have a million tee-shirts which wife would like me to part with. I have several novels I read over and over.

Favorite Movies

Enjoy superhero and sci fi movies but usually wait until we can rent them.

Favorite Television

Not much of a TV-watcher anymore, prefer books and the Internet.

POSTCARD PREFERENCES

I like animals and birds (favorites are horses, dogs, wild cats, elephants, zebras, colorful tropical birds and frogs). I also like UNESCO sites, castles, religious buildings, old stone forts and bridges, whole country maps, flags, uniforms, anything military, native costumes, and anything colorful, historic, or interesting. I prefer cards unused, clean, newer, without smoke or mildew smell and in an envelope.

Comment: Thanks so much for the fun Christmas envelope and stamps - love the envelopes you made for me and most of all your note. It was very nice to get to know you better! I have no kids but I know what you mean - I think of my nieces growing up and being busy with their own lives…thankfully the holidays bring them back home at least! Our Thanksgiving was our immediate family as well but very nice. A really good one this year. We also decorated early. I couldn’t believe we had the tree up before Thanksgiving! That’s big for us ha ha! Hope you enjoy the season and being with your kids. Thanks a lot for joining my swap!! : )

Comment: Wow! Thanks for the re-send. I expected something like a sheet of stickers so the journal was quite a nice surprise. Thank you for the postcards and journal. Take care.
Response: Hi, Happy Thanksgiving, glad the package arrived and you are pleased with it. Sorry again for the mistake on my part. I really have to read more carefully. I was scolded in college because of that fault. Rich
