My wife Janet and I have been married since June 2015 (thanks to the law in the USA finally changing) but we celebrated our 34th anniversary in November. We both work in a hospital in Richmond, Virginia. Our “COVID-19 baby” is a hound dog named Cokie who we fostered for a month and then, in a surprise to no one, adopted her.
We absolutely love to travel. We especially enjoy the National Parks in America and are slowly working our way through all of them and still have 13 states to visit! But we also enjoy visiting other countries -- so far we have been to Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Costa Rica and in the summer 2016, we had a fantastic trip to Southern Africa where we visited South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. In November 2017, we took our first cruise ever - a Viking River Cruise on the Danube - so now we can add Hungary, Slovakia, The Czech Republic, Austria & Germany to our list! In July 2019, we had a fantastic adventure to southeast Alaska!
Janet is English, having been raised in the London suburb of Harrow; I was raised in southwest Virginia. We have a wide range of interests so we will appreciate any type of postcard you want to send!
PS -- We adore Inge Look's artwork. We have #1(40463), 2(46513), 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19(50300), 20(50326), 21, 22(53453), 23, 24(54186), 25, 26, 27, 28, 29(56132), 30, 31, 32, 34, 35(60399), 36(60568), 37, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43(65334), 44(65725), 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 106, 111, 113, 119, 208, 209, 210, 213, 217 and 606.

Please, no envelopes, no teabags, no inserts, etc. Thanks.
PS -- No, I did not vote for You-Know-Who and yes we have been highly concerned about our country for the past 4 years. We are thrilled with our recent election results and are especially excited about our newly elected vice-president.
PS#2 — We do not register cards we do not receive.
ATTENTION Germans (and neighbors): We were supposed to take a Rhine River Cruise in April 2020, but of course it was cancelled. We had re-scheduled it for July — cancelled again. Our stops will be in Basel, Breisach, Strasbourg, Speyer, Rudesheim, Koblenz, Cologne, Kinderdijk and Amsterdam. We will have “excursions” at every stop but will usually be given some free time at each destination, too. If there are any can’t-miss shops or bakeries along our route, please tell us! ALSO, debating an all-day cycling trip (on electric bike) in the Black Forest region. Should we do it? THANKS!!
And ATTENTION those who live in or near Amsterdam, we need some restaurant recommendations! We will add 4 nights in Amsterdam on to the end of our cruise. We have been there before....and loved it....but would like to find some good restaurants!
