About AJ...

Hello from Charleston South Carolina. I love living here and telling me about this city and others I visit.

Once I was featured on my favorite podcast, A Way with Words,
in an episode called Shakespearean insults in 2015. I am the one with the lamest question about Wayne the snake with possessives.

I named my lawn flamingos Whopper and Bianca after Grant's cats.

This is my new account - I used this site for years when I was a teenager and really enjoyed the interesting new information about the world as well as the community. I am now 33 and married to a nice Southern person.

Interests are:

-your region’s food ways

-UNUSUALLY BORING cards (that make you think- why in the world would they make this into a postcard?!!)

-vintage style cards or cards with early or mid (20th) century buildings, including motels, diners, coffee shops, bowling alleys, car washes, gas stations or anything like these.

-roadside attractions, tourist traps, oddities

-Black history, or any African heritage figures, events, and milestones


-snakes and other reptiles. - for 6 years I had a sweet female hugging boa named Wayne. [I mean that to say she was like a therapy animal- a moving weighted blanket]

-neon and other signage. I used to take neon classes and while I don’t bend, I can write patterns and assign the right colors

-ghosts, ghouls, creepy Halloween themes even on the brightest of spring days! I really go all out on my fall decor and like the encouragement to continue to “up my game” (very funny, whoever sends me pictures of babies. NO. That is too creepy.)

- In that vein, I have a black kitty named Winnie after the witch in the movie Hocus Pocus. I like imagery of cats

- animals: rainforest beasts like okapi, prairie critters like bison, desert denizens like cactus owls. Anything else you have is great, I’m sure!
I symbolically adopted an Okapi with the WWF in 2019. Her name is Disanka, which means “joy” in Congolese.

-the facts and anecdotes that tell me about the spirit of your country or city. The content on the back of the card is much more important to me- the pretty stamps especially and the message about how life is in your town, any doodles, taped and pasted additions, rubber stamps or stickers you’d like to add, all are greatly appreciated!

One request: if you are sending from the US, if you can afford it, please try not to send me one with a domestic “postcard” stamp. If not, no worries. Just make the message very interesting

I am always looking for new places to visit and have gotten some great ideas from the postcards I have received.
Happy postcrossing!
