About EJ...

Greetings from the Illinois/Wisconsin border !!!

Milestone for me, as of 4/17/19, I can send 100 postcards at a time, wow ! (That translates to over 4,550 sent, btw.)

First of all, apologies for cards in envelopes...our post offices have to use machines that process thousands of letters and cards per hour, and, well, smaller things go missing more. I also have some major issues with my handwriting and printing, but have recently tried to do some cards normally:.)
Of course, cards in or out of an envelope is entirely up to you ! I know it costs more to send in envelopes in some countries...no worries, it is not necessary:.)

I will make it easy...send me that card you can't unload on anyone else ! Postcrossing should be fun with no demands, right?

Still can't decide what to send? Here's the challenge...
Find a card you have hung on to for half your lifetime for whatever reason...that's the one I want, lol !!! You might want to tell me why you couldn't send it, if it's not obvious :.)

And remember, if you see I haven't registered your card after 30 days(or 2 weeks in the USA), please message me with the number, thanks!!!

Just a side note, I live in Kenosha, Wi, but my closest post office is in Russell, IL...literally, the post office sits on the state line, lol !!! My avatar shows this office.

Stay cool !
