I am an availing philatelist with interests in astrophilately, aerophilately, notaphily, sigillography, marcophily and genealogy. I am married with three young children at home on a 40-acre (16 ha) Texas ranch, a one hour drive east of downtown Dallas. We enjoy a high quality and high standard of living. We love to get all postcards, letters, or items to trade with in the mail, preferably with real stamps on them, since they are educational, collectible and inspirational. This is a good opportunity for my children to learn geography, language identification, and cultures from around the globe. We love to travel and get to know others better. People usually comment on how the mail they receive from us brings them joy and prevailing happiness, a countervailing force against the travails in the vale of life.
Some of my favorite things to get in the mail are all things to do with the time period of the Middle Ages in Europe and skyscrapers around the globe. We love deltiology and to especially collect stamps or postcards with any European or current monarchy and castles. For example the Prince of Novgorod Rurik in the year 862 to the Emperor of Russia Nicholas II in 1917. Anything from anywhere is exciting to receive.
I have been on vacation internationally with great recollections to many parts of México, Chile, Perú, (Québec) Canada, France, Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Jamaica. There are so many more countries to explore to send mailings and gifts from.
In the United States of America I have travelled with other fond memories to many states like California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. I plan on visiting more states to send postcards from, while on vacation in the future. I use Informed Delivery by the USPS.
In Texas of the 254 counties where there is so much to see and do, some of which are bigger than other states or nations. I have been to too many counties to name; from the lush forests of east Texas, the beaches on the Gulf Coast, the hill country in central Texas with the cave systems, the many big cities or towns with nice museums, the numerous freshwater lakes, water parks, zoos, wildlife parks, seasonal fairs, state or city parks, collecting fossils along the numerous rivers, one of the Native American reservations, the fertile Great Plains, the majestic mountains with seven named peaks in elevation greater than 8,000 feet (2,400 m) and the ten percent desert of the state in west Texas. So, I have many postcards from all over Texas to send you.
I enjoy bringing addresses with me on my adventures, journeys, travels, and quests so I can mail out postcards to share a little joy with others. Now I can mail out my favorite local spots from home, too. Thanks for reading.
