Married with 3 children. Two are at university and the other graduated as a ER nurse. Yes she is in the front line here in Canada. My hobbies are post card, stamp + coin collecting since I was a boy, hunting, curling, hiking and running. In May I just completed my 3rd half marathon , time 2:27. I have kept all my post cards that I mailed to my family when I did my travels plus I have kept all my post cards sent to me since I was a young man.
I work in a plywood mill as a supervisor (42 years). We as a family have RVd (pulling a travel trailer) from Alaska/Arctic Ocean to Newfoundland, Texas to Maine/ and the western USA. My wife is from Lithuania so I have been there a number of times. She was my pen pal for 4 years. I had wanted a pen pal from the Baltic at that time it was the USSR for stamps on letters and learn what's it like to live/grow up in the USSR. Well to make a long story short I fell in love and married her. Its now 27 years this August and we are going for the next 25!! The photo is correct as my son is 6'8 and my daughters are 5'6. The height is from the Lithuanian side, the girls on my side of the family tree. My son plays basketball the #1 sport in Lithuania which he plays at university level here in Canada. Most Canadians class our national sport as hockey but officially its lacrosse. Last years holidays was a stay in BC vacation and it was again in 2021. I just came back from a bucket list trip. It was a 6/7day, wilderness canoe trip via 4 lakes, 4 mini lakes, 8 portages, for a total of 116 km.. Couldn’t make it to Europe again this year!!!!!!
Prefer to have postcards from your city/country scene or a special item that depicts your area/country with a pretty stamp or stamps. If possible not mandatory! I love Xmas post cards during the Christmas season.
If you are American/ Canadian or even if you are from European/SE Asia I love national parks, state parks, provincial and regional park cards. If not no worries. I have only disliked 6 post cards (That's about 2%) so far! One of which was damaged in the mail. Chances are I will love it!!!! I do not cut up the post card stamps for my stamp collection!!!!
If you are into collecting stamps let me know as I have lots to trade for a post card or stamps!
If you read to this line, congratulations are in order as I didn't bore you! If you had to translate this into your language, sorry as some of the translation will be off!
