About Elsie...

Good day

My name is Elsie (64) and I live in Sunny South-Africa. Am a keen Philatelist. I find stamps intricate artworks. I do enjoy photography and the beauty of nature. Travel is a well loved pastime and my husband and I have been in all neighbouring countries and we always slept in a tent. I loved the way we cooked on open fire in the African bush, especially close to a river. The water and bush sounds are heavenly!

We are both retired. We also volunteer at the local animal shelter and I am now doing mornings only office job there. We have six dogs. Last four were adopted from the shelter, all loved and spoiled.

I will appreciate any card, even the dull or ordinary ones. If you want to make one, feel free. If you are a photographer, share your photo. I am not sure what I enjoy more - finding the “right card” according to a person’s profile, writing it or receiving one.

The most recent aphorism I like is:
Choose distance over disrespect, and peace over drama.

PS: The South African mail services are extremely slow. I always register the cards on the same day I receive it, even when it travels more than 60 days! If your card travels too long, let me know. I will register it and let you know when it arrives.

Kind regards
