Note: The US Postal Service is having problems due to new regulations as well as COVID, and our mail is not proceeding in a regular fashion as it has in the past. I register all cards usually within a day of receiving them. If too much time has gone by and I haven't registered your card, it's probably because I didn't get it. Feel free to send me a message with the ID and I'll register it.
I am a retired High School science teacher (environmental and physical science were my love). Prior to that I was in the US Army for 10 years and traveled through Europe (that was in the 1970's). I have always loved postcards! i have collected them from the time I was very young.
I love receiving cards of any theme - store bought or hand made. People are reflected in the choices and I have long enjoyed everything from the receiving of a card or letter, the feel of the paper, the look of the writing -
It will be wonderful to receive notes on the cards, reflecting what you are doing at the time. Everyday life is so fascinating! I don't think there is anything I'm not interested in.
Although I only speak English with any fluency, I can read some German and do not mind if you write your card in that language as it will help me improve. I hope to get better writing German as time goes on.
I would be interested in cards that show the flag of your country, state, province, etc.
Thank you for your time! ~ Pälla
