About Carol...

Just thought of a theme I'd like to receive cards for: museums! I like both "normal" museums, but I'm also interesting in unusual museums such as the Spam or Zippo lighter museums. If you have such a card, I'd love it. But read on below for other ideas...

Please put the date on your card. When I look through my received cards, it's good to be able to tell when I got them. Thanks.

I spend a lot of time Postcrossing, for several reasons. First, I have always loved to get mail! I eagerly wait for the postman to arrive each day – the mailbox is often full of surprises! Secondly, I love to send cards even more than I do receiving them. I look at the recipient’s profile and try to pick the right card – sometimes it’s tough! Third, I really enjoy the great people I’ve met, both through official exchanges, and on the Forum. I’ve been Postcrossing since 2006, and I still enjoy asking for a new address and reading a new profile.

When I started Postcrossing I was busy working and caring for my late husband, who was ill for a long time. Sending cards was a pleasure. Now, I am a retiree and a widow. My life is full, but this hobby is still one of my favorites. Fitness has always been very important to me, but I’ve had to change my activities as I became older. For over twenty years, running was my passion. Now I go hiking with a group almost every day, year-round. I still run a little and try to weight train and do yoga when I can. Like many people I’ve met on Postcrossing, I love to read a variety of things. My avatar is my beloved pet cockatiel Pearl, who’s been with me for over twenty years.

Postcards? I used to say, “Send something that you yourself would enjoy receiving”. I still think that’s good advice, but I’m sure you’d like more direction than that. I always do. I hate to list a lot of preferences, because someone could send me something that I never would have imagined I’d like.

So, it you want to know what I like, look at my favorites. I’ve received a lot of tourist cards, so they are not always my favorites. I love fantasy and science fiction; animals (except cats: I don't care for cats); art cards; strange, bizarre, and unusual cards. But I will treasure whatever you want to send!

Please don't think you have to look through my received cards to avoid duplicates - I don't care! Send what you want to send, and don't waste your valuable time. The back of the card is as important than the front.
The cards in my favorites are ones I have not received.

Thanks!
