Hello! I am a retired teacher with a passion for lifelong learning. I greatly enjoy taking free on-line courses on a variety of topics but I have a particularly keen interest in history and current world events. I love to travel abroad as well as in my own beautiful country where I love to explore the wilderness in my canoe.
For me the message on the postcard is even more important than the picture. Please consider writing on one of these topics:
- Make a list of your favourite things.
- What is the most interesting thing that happened to you today or this week?
- If you have a sweetheart, how did you meet?
My Postcard Wishlist (not in any order of preference)
A. any of the ones on my wall of favourites (these are ones I don't have)
B. Because I love to travel:
- airplanes, airports
- ships, especially cruise ships, sailing ships, aircraft carriers, ferries, freighters, tour boats (a vintage postcard of a ship is especially appreciated!)
- maps of all kinds (I particularly enjoy city and transit maps)

E. Because I'm interested in people:

- would love a postcard of: Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, Sigmund Freud, Marie Curie, Gandhi, the Beatles
F. Of course, I will enjoy any postcard you send except for the free ad postcards, homemade postcards, and folded, greeting cards. I don't prefer multi-views but I realize this may be the only ones available.
Interesting stamps are always greatly appreciated!!
