Hi there Postcrossers!
I'm now retired after helping British Railways keep trains running for 45 years!
Married to Barbara with two children and four grandchildren.
We live in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside in Monks Risborough.
At this stage I would be pleased to receive any type of postcard from anybody, anywhere.
In due course I might decide I have favourite types and will amend my profile accordingly.
(Having said that a postcard with a Teddy Bear or two would be really nice!!)
Thank you and looking forward to receiving a card from you.
An update after three months: (4th April 2018, and a further addition on 27th April and yet another on 1st May 2018)
Cards which would be extra nice to receive:
Teddy Bears (my wife and I just love them - we have over 350 many of which
have been "rescued" from charity shops thus helping the charity at the same time as filling up two bedrooms!!)
Any cards relating to transport in it's widest sense -
Railways, Aircraft, Buses, Trams, Ships, Boats - basically if it moves
and carries people or freight then it will be eligible and therefore a delight to receive. Also cards showing estuaries, creeks, harbours, rivers whatever at low tide with possibly a boat or two stranded on the mud. Fantastic.
But don't worry if you don't have any of the above (or below) - EACH AND EVERY CARD IS APPRECIATED.
(27th April 2018 addition) I have just sent a postcard to a German lady who is interested in "world foods" who requested that a home-made postcard created from some of the stiff card used in the packaging would be appreciated. It does indeed make for an interesting "postcard" - so if you would like to send me something like that it would be nice. Cut the packaging to a standard 100x150mm (or 4inch x 6inch) and write on the plain side (obviously!)
(1st May 2018 - another addition) Most postcrossers seem to be able to write quite a lot about themselves, where they live, what they do, their family and so on. That is always a pleasure to read. A few however have nothing more to say than "Happy Postcrossing". Please don't be one of those, the whole object surely is to send a postcard and actually write to somebody!
Finally, please could you put the POSTING DATE on the card, not necessarily the date you requested it or wrote it! That means when it arrives, I know exactly how many days it has taken the postal authorities to get it to me. Thank you for that.
With very best wishes, Dennis
