Comment: I just received your letter, and I loved it, though I join you in wishing you a pleasantly uneventful year for 2018, unlike the dire events of 2017. Thank you for the extras: the postcards and notecard are awesome.
Comment: Hi CJ! It has been ages since we have been partners - it was wonderful to hear about your summer! I am a big summer fan until we get major heat and humidity - yikes! LOL! How wonderful about "God's Little Acres" and your good works! I am sure it is appreciated! I am so jealous of how close you are to the beach! We just got back from Panama City Beach, FL last night - I was happy to see our kiddo, pooch and my bed but am already missing hearing the waves and enjoying the beach! LOL! Thanks so much for the wonderful share! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Yes, due to the cost of postage these days I don't do many swaps and even fewer international ones. Was happy to share my summer with you. Took a break from the farm on Friday and spent it at the beach. Thanks so much for the heart and the rating!
Comment: Thanks for the Happy Mail!! I love reading letters from fellow swappers. I don't sign up for many letter swaps and then every now and then a swapper will send a letter and I realize how much I enjoy reading them! I can't believe that you have been to all 50 states! That's a dream of mine - one day! Thank you so much for the Happy Birthday cards - I'm very excited to be able to join this swap, now!! Also, I have never seen that Nova Scotia card before and it's perfect for my collection! Thanks once again! â™¥â™¥
Response: Excellent, glad you got the birthday cards in time for the swap and that it was a new Nova Scotia card I sent. Thank you for the heart and the rating.
I hope you fulfill your dream one day of getting to see all 50 states.
Comment: Hi C.J.! You blew this one out of the park! WOW! What a wonderful card to receive of your very own photo of the Flume Gorge. Thank you so much for sending it! You took a beautiful picture - the area looks lovely! How did you put it on the postcard backing? Did you have a stamp? Looks very professional! Happy Swapping! Valerie
Response: How sweet of you Valerie. Glad you liked it. I googled "postcard template" and went to images, save a couple that I liked. Then I printed it to a 4 x 6 index card. I then used spray adhesive to attach the two backs together. It was my first attempt so can't tell you how happy I am that it stayed intact during transit.
Comment: CJ, boy you surley have your summer filled. I only wish I could walk relays and such, but for health reasons can't, so when I see people doing this I give them credit instead of sitting in front of the television. Thank you for the map card of BC. Shirley
Response: Thank you Shirley for the rating and the heart. The relay is something that hits close to home, it's a must do and we enjoy it!
Comment: Thank you for the extra postcard. I have to travel about 4-5 hours north of here to see moose. I have seen them, lots of them. One time I had to slam on the brakes for a bull moose, he was way bigger than my truck. Have you seen whales??? edit-typo
Response: Yes I've seen the whales several times. We had a pod of them in the harbour just last week. The orcas are gorgeous! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: I've seen that clock, but I DIDN'T know the history of it. Would love to have this card in my collection - hope you get it back in great condition!
Response: It arrived back where it belongs on Wed of last week. They say it's more accurate than ever, however when we walked past it on Sunday night, it's 10 minutes fast, not happy with that. We missed it going off by 7 minutes on account of that.
Comment: I loved this swap from you! Apologies for not rating sooner -- we've been away for Christmas. I just wish I'd been near enough to join in on your pre-Christmas open house!!! ELVIS!!!! (I drove by his home in Tupelo MS on my trip south!) You DO indeed know how to throw a party! :-) New Year joy to you CJ! And thanks again for a super swap! xxx
Response: So glad you got it and happy with it. It would be awesome to have you join us for our Open House one year, however we don't always have Elvis. lol Been to his home and toured it before. Thanks for the heart. Happy New Year!!!
Comment: Thank you for your beautiful Christmas card, I liked it a lot, it is really beautiful and I am going to put it in my Christmas tree.. Also, thanks for the cuts of angels, I'm thinking of doing a craft with them :) I wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2015
Response: I'm glad you like the card. Thank you for the heart. Merry Christmas.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely Christmas card! If I could, I would start to decorate right after Halloween but my family grumbles. lol I have so many decorations that I have to start early if I want to enjoy them all! Happy holidays!
Response: Thanks much for the heart. I started it all on Nov 1 and still not done. Must be done by next Monday as family gets here Tuesday. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you so much for your travel story. I know that I would love doing a road trip like that with my husband. We usually go from a to b with stops for fuel only. I love waterfalls too. Nicely prepared swap.
Response: Thank you Gale. I love sharing the stories of our travels, these are my favorite swaps to do. Of course I'd rather type them since I do go into so much detail. lol But it's all good. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: What an amazing letter and your pictures...there aren't words! My husband and I both throughouly enjoyed experiencing your trip through your words and photos. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
Response: Pheew, I can breath now. I was so afraid it would get lost in the mail, I did NOT want to redo that whole thing. lol So glad you enjoyed it, I do love to share our travels with others but this was the first time I've hand written it. Thank you for the kind words and for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the unique pc of the baby bear. I've lived in a couple of areas in BC where bears were a common sight; in one place two yearlings would sit side by side on a ridge over the cottage and sniff the dinner cooking!
Response: It would not do for me to live where they live like that, I'd be right out there playing with them. lol Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the swap. Loved the pic,
Reminds me of one I have of a ceiling made from coloured glass that I took in Vegas. Also loved the vintage hotel PC, I looked it up online, it still exists! Looks exactly the same too:)
Response: That's cool, I hadn't looked the vintage hotel up, hadn't thought about it. Thanks for the heart!

Comment: That's an interesting looking lighthouse-thank you! I suppose you're a SeaHawks fan-Congrats to them. We were in such shock here after the Broncos had the best game of the season at the AFC Championship game. I guess when it's not your day, it's just not your day!
Response: Actually I'm a Tennessee Titans fan. I LOVE Peyton, have watched him since his high school days. However not a Bronco's fan, sorry. I did have to cheer for the Seahawks tho since they are so close to us. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Many thanks CJ for the tea and letter, I think you must have a marvellous holiday time. It would be wonderful to drop in on one of your showings. Your house must look amazing!!!! Thank you for sharing.
Response: Oh I am so happy it got there. I asked at the post office if I had to declare the tea bag, he said, "oh that means it's a parcel not a flat, that's $6.55 postage. Uh I don't think so!!! I kept it and went to another post office, slapped a stamp on it and mailed it without saying what it was. So very glad you got it. We love getting to share all of our lights and decorations and goodies with everyone! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Wow...what a great things you have done during Christmas time! Can't even start to imagine what your place must look like! Amazing! Can I come and see sometime? Thank you for sharing this special moments with me! Love the extra Vancouver card too! Many hearts for you!
Response: Thank you so much for the great comments. If ever you are in Vancouver during the Christmas season I'd love to share it all with you! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: I loved the photos of your house and baked goods! You've done such a lovely job of decorating the house -- and the picture of the cakes and cookies made me so hungry that I had to go get a cookie! I bet your open day was fun -- thank you for sharing it with me.
Response: Glad you liked them. Thanks for the heart!!!
Comment: CJ, thank you so very much for the fun card, stickers,and great letter(I also sing the words ,but it will be our secert!!!) I wish I could give you 10 more hearts for thinking of Danielle. You made her day!!!
I hope you have a wondeful Christmas and New Year.
Response: Thank you very much for the kind words, I'm glad Danielle was tickled that I included her. Thanks so much for the heart.
Comment: Beautiful PC - hope to travel that way someday soon. Fortunately the tornados did not hit our area, but it was a long day of storms to keep an eye on. The worst hit area is less than 2 hours away. I'm hoping they can recover - so many are helping. Thanks for your concern. Have a great Holiday Season. Take care, Annette
Response: Glad to hear all is well. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Grammycj,
I can see why you found it difficult to choose which photo to send -- they are all lovely! And the notecards are beautifully made. I can't decide which one I like best, but I will enjoy looking at them and using them. Thank you so much.
Response: Thank you for such kind comments. I do so enjoy sharing my photography with others. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Just received the cards you sent me. When I opened the package & saw the lighthouse/map card I thought it was the same one I had sent you but now realize that it is a little different. Thanks for the great swap. All the cards are new to me. Once you receive my swap if you wanted to do another, just let me know.
Response: Excellant, glad they got there and that all are different from what you already have. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Yes, I'm glad to have you as a partner for this swap. Thank you for the fabulous Santa Christmas card, I will put the card on display here in my apt. Also thank you for the holiday extras - stickers, sticker labels. I will return to the Over 50 forums soon.
Response: Thank you for the heart Kathy, hope to see you in the forums soon.
Comment: Hello CJ, thank you for the beautiful card with the essence of Christmas message. It is truly lovely! I adore the ideas you shared with your Christmas trees, they are awesome and so special I am going to try them too!! Many hearts to you, ðŸ’•ðŸ’–ðŸ’•ðŸ’–ðŸ’•
God Bless and Merry Christmas!
Response: Thank you for a wonderful rating and all the kind words. Much thanks for the heart.
Comment: What a great selection of PCs. The ones of Flume Gorge and the bridges are fabulous. . .and interesting to see the area near where you live. Thanks again for the great selection and happy swapping ~~
Response: Glad you like the choices. I LOVED hiking at the Flume Gorge! Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: â™¥ Love your photos! â™¥ That fox is just amazing, thank you so much. Hope you've gotten your laptop fixed.
Response: Glad you like the photos. The fox is by far one of my favorite photos I've taken. Laptop will cost more to fix then paid for it, so got an early Christmas present, got new one. Thanks for rating and heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for the great cards!!. The Olympic rings picture is awesome!!
Response: Glad you like them. Did I mention in the note that the rings would change color each time Canada got a medal? I loved to drive down to the water just to see what color they were day to day. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the photos, I love that you made them into notecards! I immediately recognized Hanauma Bay... I fed the fishies there when I visited as a kid! ;) And the suspension bridge looks fun.
Response: Glad you like the cards. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you, I loved the pictures you took - especially the card. The beach is always such a great place to be (living in Idaho, sadly not often something I get to do...) So thanks for bringing the ocean to my mailbox!!
Response: I'm glad you liked them. I'm very fortunate living on the Pacific Coast. I LOVE the ocean! Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Hi! Thanks so much for the lovely note about your 4th of July - being with family is always so wonderful! Loved the fireworks photos, pc, and the photo from HI is just amazing!! We hope to go there for our 30th wedding anniversary (three years and counting - LOL!) - I very much enjoyed getting Happy Mail from you! Hugs, Happy Snapping and Swapping! ;)
Response: Thank you for the kind comments. We went to HI for our 10th anniversary. I want to go to Tahiti for our 15th. Thanks for the rating and the heart. I enjoyed this swap.
Comment: Hello! Thank you so much for the sweet pc. I know exactly what you mean about the grandkids. We miss our grandbabies so much after they leave our house. They really change your life in so many ways. They are so precious and such a blessing to have. Thanks again!!!
Response: That's the truth, my grandkids have changed my life in many ways. Thank you for the heart and the rating.
Comment: Oh, I love the turtle picture! Thank you! The sunset is also lovely. I have a sunset picture that is one of my favorites as well, and it was taken during a vacation. Seems like those become special memories. :) Thank you for the lovely cards (you did great!)
Response: I thought you would like the turtle. Glad the cards turned out okay. Thank you for the rating.
Comment: Thank you for the awesome note card pictures. They are lovely. I would love to see the bridge some day!!
Response: If you ever get to visit Vancouver I'll happily take you to the bridge. I love going there and crossing it and the 7 smaller ones in the tops of the trees. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: A stunningly beautiful card! Your friend did a great job on the card and I so enjoyed getting to know you better! Thanks for the Capilano postcard -- it's been so many years since I saw it, and of course the changes are amazing! I know I could not to the Cliffwalk!!! Thanks for joining my swap :-) xx
Response: I wish I had my friends talent. I love taking photos but have a long way to go to be as good as she is. Sure you could do the Cliffwalk, I'd be right there with ya helping you do it! I enjoyed this swap, thanks for hosting it. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: awwwwwww..........now you've gone and made me homesick! I've been on the suspension bridge and have such fond memories of Stanley Park and Gas Town - - - for sure the West Coast around Vancouver is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world! Thanks CJ. (Want some of our heat? I's 35C here today!)
Response: No need, we are getting heat of our own these days. lol Not as hot as you have it, but we've hit 30 a few times. Thanks for the heart!! Sorry to make you homesick. lol
Comment: Thanks for the postcard! Talk about an amazing view! And sadly one only a few see! Hope you're enjoying your heatwave? Send some heat this way please, my two pairs of bedsocks aren't cutting it!
Comment: Thankyou CJ for your lovely interesting letter, I enjoyed reading over a nice cup of tea. I enjoy walking. I love to walk on the beach.I love the preey note card. I have a wild and friendly garden. Thankyou CJfor the pretty notecards, love Jennifer.
Response: Glad it got to you okay Jennifer. Thank you much for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for all the great Canadian items CJ! I'm so glad you're proud to be an American and honoured to be living here. We never lose our roots. :o) All your plans sound beautiful ~ wishing you and your family the Best time!
Response: Thank you for the kind words as well as for the rating and the heart. I just wish I'd been able to send the magnet I wanted to send, but I just couldn't bring myself to spend 4 times more for postage than I paid for the magnet so had to remove it from the envelope.
Comment: WOW!! I really enjoyed your letter. It was wonderful to read all about your travels here in Canada and in the US. I just love New England!!
Thanks for the great postcards. I have always wanted a card showing the Oregon Trail.
Response: Thank you much for the heart. I never really know what to write when doing these kind of letters, so I'm happy that you enjoyed reading it. I too have fallen in love with New England.
Comment: Absolutely beautiful photos--I loved them! The upside down flower is a Crown Imperial Fritillary(Fritillaria imperialis). I googled 'upside down flower'--heehee. They say they smell bad, did you think so? What kind of camera did you use?
Response: Oh geesh, I never thought to google upside down flower. Thanks for helping me with that. We didn't get close enough to smell them. I use a Canon T1i and have two different lenses for it. I switch the lenses out several times while on a walk. I love my Canon!
Comment: You're right, CJ. These are perfect cards! Love both the vintage White Rock and the S.S. Marseilles. I have a terrible time finding Canadian PCs so I really like the WR one!
Response: Wow you got those quick, I'm finally impressed with our local mail service. lol I picked up the WR card at the WR museum. A great place to get local cards is at duty free at the Aldergrove border crossing.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful letter and pretty notecards! Congrats on your year anniversary of changing to a healthier lifestyle! Very impressive!
Your holiday plans sound wonderful! I now have to look up a barefoot sandal!
Thank you once again C.J!
Response: Thank you Jen for the rating and the heart. Thank you for the kind words. I am counting the days to our holiday!!
Comment: Thanks for the great "blue" picture! Have a great time in Bermuda. Haven't done that cruise yet. Have only been on Holland America once but I believe that was my favorite . My favorite cruise ever was to the Galapagos. Words can't express how great it was!!
Response: Thank you for the heart.
We love Holland as well, but sail Norwegian the most and are quite happy with them as well.
Comment: Thanks for the card! The trick to making Christmas trees out of books is folding the pages. If you google it you should be able to find a tutorial. I think Martha Stewart did the one I followed.
Response: Thank you for the info! Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Oh my goodness, some of those photos are so pretty, they could be postcards! What a beautiful walk you took me on. I love the statues and the bleeding heart plant. This was just great; it took me away from hot, dry Texas for a few minutes. Thanks so much, CJ!
Response: Thank you for the kind remarks TC. I'm glad you enjoyed our walk. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: I very much enjoyed going on your walk with you. The gardens are beautiful! I was amazed by the trees in your neighborhood as our Illinois trees don't have their leaves yet. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us!
Response: Glad you enjoyed the walk. Your leaves will be out before you know it. Thanks for the rating and heart.
Response: Thanks for the great rating and heart. So many of us are fed up with winter and I wanted to share some signs of spring with everyone. I know you are in the tropics so winter isn't one of those things you deal with but was sure you'd enjoy the pictures just the same.
Comment: Thank you so much for the very special Cathedral postcard! Love it!
Response: Oh I'm glad you like it. It's not your typical Cathedral, I wasn't sure if I should send it or not. I walked a very very very steep hill to get to it to see it. It's beautiful inside, everything being wood makes it much different then other Cathedrals I've been in. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: What a beautiful walk! Thank you so much! I felt I was right along with you, with your narrations. The pictures were beautiful. Thank you for sending so many. I've never seen snow like that! I have seen it a few times, but nothing as you have there. I'd love to go for a walk with you again. :)
Response: Thank you for such kind compliments. I love these swaps and getting to share my walks with others. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Were both of those walks near each other? Thanks for sharing!
Response: Yes, the snow shoeing was at the top of the mountain and lighthouse park is at the bottom of the mountain more or less. They are both located in West Vancouver, BC, Canada. Thanks for the rating.
Comment: Beautiful card ! It looks like my cat, CHANEL (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jeanmimi/4511158332/)
Thank you very much :-)
Response: Oh my goodness, Chanel could have posed for the picture for the postcard. I knew it was the right card to send, just didn't know how much it looked like Chanel. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: you must live in a beautiful setting. what does P.E.I stand for?
Response: I do indeed live in a beautiful setting, P.E.I is Prince Edward Island, it is one of our Eastern provinces, we were there on a cruise in October. Beautiful island!!!!! Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Oh I love the lighthouse stories too. Here in NC we have some beautiful ones. A cruise sounds so amazing! Thanks I am spoiling my new granddaughter like crazy!!! I love her so much...THANKS
Response: Having lived in SE TN for 17 years I'd like to say I've seen some of the NC lighthouses, but sadly I don't think I managed to see any of them. Maybe one day. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for the great lighthouse postcard - what an amazing view!
Response: Isn't it tho? I so love lighthouses. I would love to get to see some of them in the snow and all lit up like that. We did see many different ones while on our New England cruise in October, but no snow then. Glad you like it too. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely snowy card and the cute little stickers! WOW--tubing down the mountain on Christmas day--you are BRAVE! No snow here yet--last year we barely got ANY so I'm hoping for some beautiful white snowscapes this year!
Response: Well so far the tube slope is not yet open, but I have confidence they will have more than enough snow to open it by Christmas!! Thanks for the great rating and heart.
Comment: thankyou for your card letter and pic hello to both of you . I enjoyed reading your interesting letter and so glad to hear all is going great for you take care and greetings from Australia Audrey .....
Response: This one has been one of my most enjoyable swaps, just a bit more personal, warms the heart this time of year. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I LOVE the card you chose to send!!! I am preparing for the holidays. Got all my decor up, made all my cards this past weekend, now to get the shopping done! The last hike I went on was about a month ago, I have been so busy lately! Thanks again for the lovely card!
Response: I'm glad you liked it, I had a feeling you would. Yeah not much hiking happening here either. When I got to work this morning I said I was clocking in ten minutes late as I really needed to take a walk while it wasn't raining. A co-worker joined me and off we went for a short but brisk walk. Sometimes one just has to get the blood flowing again! My shopping is done, decorations are all up, and am half way thru the baking. I want to be able to just relax that last weekend before Christmas!! Merry Christmas to you!! Oops almost forgot to say thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: the snowmen are brilliant and the stickers are just perfect. i love christmas stickers so much. :D thanks.
Response: Phew, I almost missed the fact we were to include stickers, so I grabbed those on my way to the post office, glad they work for you. I must admit I got some for me too. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try it today
Response: Excellant, I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. Will miss getting to eat them this year, but must stick to the plan if I want to look good for Bermuda in 2013. Thanks for the rating and another heart.
Comment: your decorations sound great. I would love to see pictures.
Response: You can find me on facebook where you will find photo albums from years past with all the lights and all. Of course we make changes each year but not a lot. Thanks for the rating and the heart. Merry Christmas!
Comment: Thank you CJ for the card! the boot socks i crochet are kind of turning out to be a total fail as i am not as skilled as i like to think i am! i have been making a bunch of boot cuffs that peek out of the top of the boot i found this pattern and have been using it and so far everythings turned out good!
Response: Thank you for the pattern, the cuffs seem to be the new thing for this year so I'll indeed whip up some and give as gifts to a couple of the young ladies in my life. Thanks for that. Thanks for the rating and the heart. Merry Christmas!
Comment: I don't miss being in Maine at Christmas because I always spend Christmas there (with my son, his wife, and grandkids) It's fun to catch up with zillions of friends-from-myu-past, too. And if it snows, which it frequently does, I know I actually get to enjoy it and then leave it! You've made quite a switch yourself, a switch of countries! How does that feel? Ho ho ho, thanks again, so much!
Response: Yeah I've made quite the switch too. Love living here, getting to enjoy the ocean and the mountains all at the same time. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the nice postcard! You really go all out for Christmas. I think I am doing less and less each year. I really appreciate people like you that do up their whole house for other to enjoy.
I wish you a wonderful Christmas season and a low electricity bill!
Response: Thank you Julie. I was well blessed when I married a man that loves Christmas as much or more than I do. Merry Christmas!!
Comment: Oh, this is an adorable pc! We don't really do anything for Christmas, so I'm jealous of your display!
Response: It sure is a lot of work!! Then we get these big winds and have to start all over again after repairing all the broken items. But when all is said and done it's well worth it. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: yes - 9 sewing machines that all work. I use 4 of them. 4 are waiting to be sold. The last is a pet project - it runs off a car lighter plug. I used it quite a bit last year, but it is sitting in its case right now. :) And yes, I do think we are going to have a white Christmas - too many clear skies down here! Merry Christmas!
Response: Wow, never seen one you can plug into the car lighter plug.
Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: I'm so sorry i just realise this wasnt rated when i double check my spreadsheet it was listed as done. My guess is i didnt click save. I love the stuff you send me and THANK You for them. Its great having you as a partner.
Response: Oh I am so glad you got them, I was getting worried. Glad you liked the items I sent. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for this lovely Winny The Pooh card, and the long sweet note! I would love to visit your open house in december :) I would have brought you one of my petsnakes. Too bad we live so far away from each other!
Response: Yep shame we are so far away. Thanks for the rating and the heart, glad you liked the card.
Comment: Thank you! :) I was surprise because it came so early, but I really enjoyed to read your card, and the card itself -- you are right, it is perfect, I like it very much! :)
Response: It is so much less expensive for me to mail things across the border in WA than here, and they travel much faster too. So since I was going across the border last week I went ahead and got them mailed. Happy to hear you liked it. Thank you for the rating and the heart.
Comment: My very first Christmas card of the season--thank you! Thanks also for the cookie recipe--time to start going through the recipes in the next few weeks. Always like to try something new.
Response: If ever you want any more new recipes just shout I have tons of them. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Winnie the Pooh card. I have a friend that is a very big fan so I am going to re-purpose the card for her. I'm glad that I was partnered with you and that I got the swap so early!
Response: I too love Winnie! Always happy to hear that a card works out for more than one purpose. Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: Thank you for your PC of the Cascade moutains. I like it very much and it looks beautiful.
I am afraid of flying in a plain but when I see this I should consider of doing it once so I can see your beautiful country and environment.
Response: Thank you for the heart and the rating Laura.
I love to fly!! I feel so much safer in an airplane than I do in a car! I know I am a good driver but too many others that aren't.
Comment: Love the PC with all the different lighthouses-sorry I didn't rate sooner. While I've lived in IL all my life, I'm not familiar with Lake in the Hills...I'll have to look it up. I hope you enjoy your trip to GA and have fun meeting his Dacshund - they are characters :-) take care - Happy Swapping
Comment: thank you for the amazing post card of baker!!! i got to snowboard there this past winter and am looking forward to going back this winter! i love it!!! [also thank you for the considerate message =)]
Response: That's so cool, am sure it's a blast to snowboard. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard. I visited & photographed a lot of covered bridges in PA and OH - too bad not all are represented thru postcards. They are a beautiful part of our past. Thank you and warm wishes â™¥
Response: Thank you for the rating. I can't wait to photograph some of the covered bridges in New Hampshire in October!!
Comment: The card that you sent to me was really cool. Very pretty lighthouse and house with it. I want to go stay in one so bad. I am glad that er are partners finally. Maybe we will be again. You did a real good job lady. Have fun with swap bot.This card will be a special one because it came from my best friend. Thank you again.
Response: It was tricky to be sure I sent one you probably didn't already have. I'm glad you like it.
Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcards. You really did fulfill my profile likes! A special thanks for the extra music postcard. I appreciate it so much. Also love the cover note card with the teddies. Thanks again for all of them.
Response: Glad you are happy with them. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for EVERYTHING you gave me :) Your note was so sweet and I'm so jealous that you're already near the end of the 50 states! I have a long way to go but am certainly excited for the journey :) You will have so much fun in Boston! Especially in October.. the fall foliage is beautiful and the town in general has so many things to do, I just loved it there and can't wait to go back and visit :)
Response: Thank you for the heart.
Afraid we won't get much time in Boston this trip but will be there again in Oct 2013 on way to Bermuda cruise and we plan to spend some extra time there then. Only 46 more days till cruise, am getting excited.
Comment: Thank you so much for the great Vancouver postcard. I was there in May, staying with relatives in Surrey. We did the seawall walk around Stanley Park! I loved it so much, that I'm planning another visit next year!
Response: That's awesome, of all the places and things to do here the seawall walk has been my favorite. After eleven years however I'm still exploring!! Good to hear that you enjoyed yourself so much that you want to return. If you didn't do it this year, be sure to visit Capilano Suspension Bridge here on the North Shore, it's fantastic!! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful post card! I hope to see the aurora borealis some day in person. Thanks again! Take care!
Response: You and me both!!!! Recently they said on news we'd be able to see it here if it wasn't cloudy, well sure enough not only was it cloudy but it was raining, so no such luck. Thanks for the heart.
Comment: What a beautiful postcard of the San Juan Islands. So serene. New Bern is about a 40 minute drive to the ocean. It is very unique as you can take your sailing vessel and travel all the way to the ocean and the Outer Banks which are notorious for all the shipwrecks of the past and home of Blackbeard the pirate.
Response: Sounds like you live in a beautiful part of the states. We will be visiting some of the shipwreck area in Oct 2013 when we cruise to Bermuda.
Comment: Wish you could send some of that rain down here. We need it. We left our Christmas lights up one year too. A few weeks before Christmas the bulbs were getting stolen. Thanks for the great pictures.
Response: Thanks for the heart. I sure wish we could send you some of our rain. Here it is July 2 and we've yet to see temps over 75 this summer. We'd love to trade some rain for some warm temps!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard! I especially enjoyed the photo of the graveyard, which shows that you definitely read my profile. I am new to Swapbot as well, so you definitely get a 5 and a heart for the lovely postcard.:)
Response: I am glad you liked the postcard. Thanks for the heart.
