About Me

I am 62 years old and work for a restaurant supply co. I am married with 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren. I like westerns and listen to music on the way into work. I collect postmarks, postcards, stamps, old books and lots and lots more. I am a member of quite a few postcard robins. I have alot more regular size cards than continentals. I house any postcards in file drawers and have a few topical collections in 3 ring binders.When I lived in Rhode Island I collected old bottles. Up there I dug them up. Here in Texas there aren't as many good digging sites. I like older postcards but collect animals, banks, airplanes, automobiles, ships , trains, large letter, court houses, sports stadiums, military, high schools, libraries, lighthouses, weapons, museum exhibits, exotic animals, minerals, books on pc, pictured stamps and postmarks, covered bridges.I am a member of a postcard club.we meet once a month. I have a couple of 10 drawer file cabinets in which I house my collection.

About Me

I also have collected coins for decades. I put this collection on the back burner until the coordinator of coin hideout renewed my interest in coins and got me interested in banknotes. still a beginner but enjoying her swaps immensely. Some of my coins that I've had for a long time I had to research to tell what country they came from. The same with some of my stamps - I love geography and have had to look up many countries to find out which continent they are on. I do not collect stamps by topic. I collect by country. In stamp albums the countries are listed alphabetically,and then the stamps oldest first up to the date that the album was published. The only unfortunate thing is that the albums I have are older with no pages of the newer stamps. I house those in vario pages.

About Me

I have just recently added foreign currency to my collecting interests. Swap bot got me started. I used to collect matchcovers, I still have them but I don't see many around anymore.I stopped collecting vintage paperbacks - my wife said our abode looked more like a warehouse than a home. I do still have a lot of nice old hardbacks.The only thing i have to complain about is vindictive traders that don't realize some trades actually get lost. I have not rec'd many swaps and do not negatively rate - traders should get a chance to resend. .Rating a trader a 1 without a chance to resend is wrong and only done by #%s

Comment: Thanks for the great PC. I love the F’s and E’s. I had the pleasure of servicing what I believe was the last A/B set of F3’s in regular service on the B&M.
