Have been a stamp collector for over 50 years and have now embarked on a new quest - I want to receive a postcard, addressed to me , mailed from every stamp issuing entity in the world.I started this on March 01, 2006. I now have cards from 265 countries or entities, leaving me just 9 more to collect. Of those 9, 6 are in Africa and they are quite difficult to get.
I am a grandfather to four wonderful grandsons and one beautiful granddaughter. And I couldn't be prouder of either of them.
I like to receive my postcards as postcards , written on , stamped and mailed, NOT in an envelope.
Attn Postcrossers : I have held off with this following comment for over 3 years now , that I have been a Postcrosser. I have finally come to the conclusion that I really do not like multi view cards. It is my opinion that if a place, or a building or whatever deserves to be on a postcard , then it deserves to be the focus of the whole postcard. It should not have to share the spotlight.
I like and will welcome any and all postcards. Just the same, here are a few of my likes : Airlines & Airliners, People, Manhole Covers, Royalty, Post Offices and Libraries, Trains & Railroads, bridges, pin-ups and erotica. Anything along these lines would be good, but Anything goes.
