About Jim...

Sending a card? Please write your USER NAME and the date on the card as well as the registration number.

Greetings, fellow citizens of this tiny planet.
Real mail with real stamps. Real messages hand-written by real people. WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

I am 75 years old and retired from a local university library where I was preservation manager for many years. My wife is a retired elementary school Teacher/Librarian.

We have a dog (Pintobean, Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix) and 2 cats (Emma, a Manx mix with no tail, and B'inky, a one-eyed ginger tabby). They are all rescues of a sort.

I am an avid reader and gardener. I’m a huge fan of college basketball, many different kinds of music, and bird watching. I spend a lot of my time working in clay, making both pottery and small sculptures (see avatar).

I have no expectations regarding cards; I just look forward to the surprise of anything that you may care to send or express, but I hope you will tell me something about yourself and your daily life. Who is a favorite musician? . . . a favorite book? . . . a favorite quote?

I appreciate unusual stamps also, especially of BIRDS.
