I am Duncan. I am a retired US Air Force officer. I spent 30 years in the Air Force and then taught high school for 6 years, now fully retired. I collect stamps & coins from the world. I am interested in music, history, sailing and vintage automobiles. My wife and I are frequent travelers and look forward to seeing much more of the world. I am a grandfather of two.
I enjoy the following types of topical postcards:
postal history (postboxes, postmen, etc)
military history (soldiers, uniforms, etc)
famous people from history
buildings by Antoni Gaudi
and oh yes,...Bettie Page!
I also enjoy cards with a view of your town or a famous landmark in your country. But I'm not a big fan of the multi-view cards.
You can visit my favorites list to see the types of cards that make me smile. Nice stamps on your card are especially appreciated.
If you can avoid sending cards with ads or hand-made cards, I'd be grateful. I also prefer to have the cards stamped and mailed - not in an envelope. I really appreciate a real post card (not a folded greeting card) that shows it's journey through the mail.
Please note that my favorites are cards that I would like to receive, so I no longer "favorite" cards that I receive. Please know that every card I receive is appreciated. So if I don't "favorite" your card it doesn't mean that I didn't like it. I'm only trying to make it easier for people to choose cards.
Si vous parlez français, écrivez-moi en français. J'apprends la langue et c'est une bonne pratique pour moi. Je vous remercie.
Please, please, please... Never apologize for your English, not to me,
not to anyone, anywhere, ever!
Oh, and those white strips the USPS puts on the cards can be easily peeled off.
