About Rick...

Hello, My name is Rick and live in Streamwood, Illinois with my wife Maryann.

At this time of crisis in our small world there is hardly a country not affected by Covid-19, please stay healthy and safe. Did you know there is a Postcrossing team on Kiva with 207 members at...? www.kiva.org/team/postcrossingcom

I enjoy receiving postcards that I can do some further reading about the subject, famous building in your city or country, a unique local museum or gallery, great historical event, an important artist or work of art, a scenic spot in your city or country, National Parks, a Holiday observed in your country, famous people now or in the past, recipes of local foods, or a funny card is always welcome.
I’m a big fan of zoological parklands, and all things nautical or marine. I’m a book reader. Favorite subjects are travel, history and biography. If you participate at Goodreads you can find my books here....www.goodreads.com/rickscasablanca
They are not always easy to find but I collect cards of "guys holding fish" because of my team on Kiva.

*Postcrossing friends in Italy: A Borsalino hat card would be fantastic. I was a Headwear buyer for a Department store and purchased Borsalino hats for many years.

*Postcrossing friends in Sweden: A card depicting the Troll art of Rolf Lidburg would be cherished.

*Postcrossing friends in Poland: The postcard series by Ryszard Kaja, who sadly passed away in 2019, "Plakaty z serii POLSKA" is a wonderful collection for your country.that captured the public’s imagination with their depiction of the beautiful, bizarre, kitsch and mundane aspects of the nation.

Need ideas on what to write about:
Tell me what book you read lately and really enjoyed.
What is your favorite meal? My wife and I always try new recipes.
Where did you take your last vacation or holiday?
Who is your favorite musical artist? I listen to one new album/artist a day.
I don’t mind if a postcard arrives in an envelope. Actually, now that I’ve received so many damaged and mutilated cards I can understand why many Postcrossers prefer envelopes.
Please date your postcard, that would be great. Also, sign your card with your Postcrosser user name, just in case.
