I am Duncan. I'm a transplanted Brit and retired US Air Force officer. I was born in the UK and came to the US in 1960. I married my high school prom date and we've been married 52 years. 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. I own 2 vintage cars - a 1931 Pontiac Chief and a 1978 MGB. My wife and I are frequent travelers and look forward to seeing much more of the world. I am a grandfather of two and parent to a rescued dog.
I enjoy the following types of topical postcards (no particular order):
postal history (postboxes, postmen, etc)
military history (soldiers, uniforms, etc)
famous people from history
pin-up girls of the '30s, '40s, '50s, & '60s
old airplanes and airships
old ships - especially sailing ships or naval vessels
dogs - I'm a dog lover
owls (photos - not cartoons)
bats (animals - not sports equipment!)
buildings by Antoni Gaudi
and oh yes,...Bettie Page! (I'm a fan)😎
I don't really care for the multi-view cards. A post card should send just 1 message.
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. Nice stamps on your card are especially appreciated.
It is helpful to me if you put your Postcrossing name (ID) on the card. That way I can learn something about you before I reply to your card. Sometimes it helps if the card got damaged or had a postmark applied over your name.
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.
For my Russian Poscrossing friends: I am a huge fan of the КРАСКИ РУССКОИ АВИААЦИИ series of cards (RU-4463595) - I have 4 of them so far.
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.
