I am a retired school teacher, have three sons, twelve grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. I live in southern Maine, in the northeastern USA. My hobbies include collecting postcards and model railroading. While all postcards are interesting, I would enjoy postcards picturing:
Large Letter "Greetings from ________".
Any postcard you think is interesting
About my avatar: the young lady is my youngest granddaughter, from Louisiana, when she was about a year and a half old. The photo was taken by her father, the day she and I first met in 2011. She and her twin brother and year older sister had come to Maine, with their parents, to visit. The photo was taken within an hour of their arrival and, it's obvious, we bonded right off.
Canadian Postcrossers, I am having trouble finding map postcards from the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. HELP!!!
Since Postcrossing limits the number of private messages we can make per day, I can also be easily reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
When writing on my card, please avoid writing on the very bottom half inch of the card because our postal service uses that space to print delivery codes. Lately, I print the ID number on the upper left top of the card and again down the left side of the card. When I send a postcard internationally, I always use at least three stamps. Please write the ID number twice on your card.
At the request of our President, our new Postmaster General has enacted new rules which has had bad effects on the postal service. Mail is getting much slower so, if it seems your card is slow getting to me, that is the reason. Outgoing mail is slower, too.
If you would like a postcard in return, please include your name and address on the postcard you send me.
