About Steve...

I am a retired university professor and a psychologist. I have worked with the American Red Cross doing disaster recovery work. I love to meet others around the world. I love sailing and have raced since I was in college. I love movies especially vintage movies. Recently, I bought a Hobie Tandem Island sailing kayak (trimaran) and am excited about sailing it. I also enjoy camping and playing Pickleball (look it up). I have a 5 year old cat that is adorable.

I love to read mysteries and historical fiction. I’m currently reading O’Henry short stories and I have read and thoroughly enjoyed the Patrick O’Bryan series featuring Aubrey and Maturin as well as the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also love and have read many books by John Steinbeck. I also enjoy British mysteries and watch them on BritBox. I recently have been watching Ted Lasso.

I have a new run of puzzle stamps from the United States Postal Service. Maybe you will get one!

I am not fond of sending or receiving blank cards, with no message on them. I think the message on the cards is as important as the picture on the other side. Please send me unfolded, written postcards without envelopes.

If possible I would love postcards that feature photos of where you live and/or historical photos or pictures. I would also love camping, sailing, kayaking, old airmail cards, or any cards with pictures of local physical features (I.e., mountains, rivers, lakes, trails). I would also love funny postcards or local recipe cards and unorthodox cards. I would love to get birthday cards in May or June and Christmas cards in November and December. Any card is welcome.

I live in Lawrence, KS, USA. Lawrence has about 80,000 in population and is very close to Kansas City. Lawrence is home to the University of Kansas where I worked for 32 years as a professor before retiring. Lawrence is also near the geographic center of the United States in Lebanon, Kansas. We experience all seasons here, summers are hot and winters cold but not too snowy.
