PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO REGISTER A CARD YOU HAVE SENT. I will register your card if, and when, I get it. Mail gets lost. The whole purpose of POSTCROSSING is to register the postcard; why would I not do that? Thank-you.
I live on the eastern end of New Providence island with London-born husband of 28 years, two daughters, assorted cats and two Royal Bahamian Potcake dogs, what you would probably call 'rescued mutts'. Enjoy baking cookies, cheesecake and pumpkin pie for them, but never mastered making my mum's chocolate fudge (candy).
I prefer postcards that show...
*For eldest daughter training to be a chef: cooking utensils/tools, mixing bowls, chef's jacket/hat/apron etc/, anything connected with being a chef.

May 18th, 2012...Please write your ID#s carefully especially if using a thick point marker/pen. The numbers may look fine to you but I can't figure out if they're 1s, 4s, 7s or 9s. POSTCROSSING has to track it down and that takes longer. Thanks!
July 21st, 2012...Received two postcards this week stamped MISS SENT TO CAYMAN ISLANDS (from Romania) and MISSENT TO BARBADOS (from Israel). My mail is traveling but I'm not!
