Receive postcards

About MaryJane...


I'm a retired old (80) great grandma just moved to the state of Tennessee in the United States of America. Any card is welcome - just receiving one from another person is always interesting. My favorites are every card I receive - because each card is unique and it's special to hear from each person.

I like lighthouses, covered bridges, scenery or tourist attractions from other countries. I really like the Olympics so if you have any Olympics card for me that would be great.

I would be interested in hearing what you are studying if you are in school and what you hope to do when you finish. If you are working, I would enjoy hearing what type of work you do and what kind of company you work for. I would also like to hear about your travels, hobbies, pets, family or whatever else you would like to write about.

When I receive a postcard, I Google the name of the city where the card comes from and I have learned a lot about many cities that way. So whatever card you send you can know that I will be looking at images from your city and learning something about where you live.

I live in Harrison Tennessee, a small community that is not far from Chattanooga or Cleveland cities. I have two adult daughters, one live in Montana. I currently live with my daughter and son.. I have three great grandchildren. Trent, Micah and Becca.

Several years ago I wrote a blog to tell about my country - especially for Postcrossers who plan to travel to the USA. It was more difficult than I thought it would be. It made me realize how little I know about my own country. You can find my blog at the website shown above. I hope you visit and leave me a comment. It is not a travelogue but just my favorite places and my memories and impressions of each state.

I have been inactive for a while due to my husband's illnesses and death and then my selling of my home to move to Tennessee. I hope to enjoy Postcrossing again now that things have settled down. We recently drove over 2000 miles to visit my daughter and two of my great grandchildren in Montana. It was a great trip with time for sight seeing along the way. I picked up some postcards so it seems a good time to start Postcrossing again.
