I have been collecting postcards since I was 10 years old when my great grandmother sent me a card from Florida. I still have that card from 61 years ago!!

rare countries postcards (even if you don't live there). If you live in a rare country please send a tourist card from your home area.
Please make comments about yourself. It is so interesting to read about others and learn of your interests and your country.
My husband and I are retired and love being retired. We have two children, a son and a daughter...both are married with one son each. I am a Christian woman who loves Jesus! I also like photography,reading, Scrapbooking, Facebook, Pinterest, long walks (I bought a FitBit and am now obsessed with getting 10,000 steps a day) and playing with my two grandsons! Those two boys are my joy!!
If you receive a card with no ID, Postcrossing can help you find it! I see a lot of profiles that mention cards they can't register because there is no ID.
I register cards the day I get them. I have so many cards floating in expired land that it makes me wonder how many out there were sent to me and never got here!!
Please write the date on your postcard.
One last thing.. US Postal Service attaches a wide sticker across the front or back of the postcard. This sticker can removed easily without damaging the card
PLEASE PLEASE READ THIS: CAUTION: The United Postal Service places bar codes at the bottom of postcards when cards are received in a regional routing location. These bar codes route the cards to the local post office. Please avoid writing the identifying POSTCROSSING code there. It is very difficult to read the country code and number through the bar code. Place the identifying code either at the top of the card or on the side.
