About Douglas...


As an availing philatelist with interests in astrophilately, aerophilately, exonumia, notaphily, sigillography, marcophily and genealogy, plus married with two teenage sons and a little daughter at home on a 40-acre (16 ha) ranch, an 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 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 the favorite things to get in the mail are views of the Middle Ages in Europe, old books, libraries, majestic homes, botanical gardens and international skyscrapers. We love deltiology and to especially collect stamps or postcards with any monarchy, their families, coat of arms, heraldry, castles or shaped post cards. Anything from anywhere is exciting to receive.

It has been nice to go on vacation internationally with great recollections to many various parts of México, Chile, Perú, (Québec) Canada, France, Spain, the U.K., Germany, and Jamaica. There are many more countries to explore to send mailings and gifts from.

We are not into flags, holiday cards or church structures, although we love antiquarian Bibles.

If available, send a small coin of King Charles III or put a stamp of him on the mail.

In the U.S. it was joyous to have travelled with other fond memories to many states like CA, NV, AZ, NM, CO, UT, MT, ID, WY, SD, NE, KS, OK, LA, AR, TN, AL, MS, FL, OH, KY, IL, IN, VA, WV, MD, PA, NJ and NY. It is a goal to visit more counties and states to send postcards from on future vacations.

In Texas of the 254 counties where there is so much to see and do, some are bigger than other states or nations, but there are too many counties to name; from the lush biodiverse forests of the east side, the beaches on the Gulf Coast, subtropical at the south tip, the hill country in the central area with 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 many rivers, one of the 3 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 the west. There are many postcards from all over here to send you.

It is fun bringing addresses on my adventures, journeys, travels and quests to mail out postcards, to make one's day chock-full of gleefulness. Now one can mail out favorite local spots from home, also. Thanks for reading.

Have a nice time,
