About Simon...

Hi Postcrossers

Postcrossing is great hobby. And even though postage prices have risen its is still a cheaper hobby than drinking. I have been writing a blog for 20 years. Its is pretty random but if you want a flavor of how I think and what I do take a look.

One of my hobbies for many years has been sending postcards to friends and acquaintances so I really like Postcrossing. Everything about it makes me happy. Here are links to some of my favorite and most favorited cards:

In the past I traveled a lot for business, now we travel a lot for pleasure. Life is good.

After many wonderful years living in Southern California in 2015 we moved to Phoenix, Arizona. My wife (48 plus years of happy marriage) and I live in a beautiful condominium with a super view. I am a very lucky man.

I'm still hiking and l have done some amazing hikes in great places around the world. I’m happy to report that on May 19, 2018 I was able to complete the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hike in a day. It took 15 hours and much help from my daughters but we did it. Details and photos here:
This past summer, 2023, we hiked for a few days in the Dolomites in Northern Italy. I am definitely aging and had to cancel the Tour de Mont Blanc from Chamoix, France for next summer because my stamina is declining. We are going to take our first ocean cruise next spring.

I am a man of leisure. I used to say I was retired but I'm still busy in a leisurely way. I have two grown daughters who are my greatest treasures.

I like all postcards especially bridges, mountains and retro cards. I'd be delighted if you sent me an advertising postcard but please tell me how you got it.

Life is good when you go with the flow.
