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.Update - am now64. Son graduated UT - bachelors degree with honors. Now at U of Chicago for Masters. Has written a book - Our Story - if you like to read please research.

Comment: Thank you Marc for the amazing coins and pressed penny. I have a Holland Lop too (a boy) and he is a free runner. What a coincidence!

Comment: Thank you for the book recommendations, I have heard of the Host, I might end up reading that, even if I'm not a big twilight fan, but I did end up seeing all the movies, I got stuck going with my sister to the theater since she was young and not allowed to go on her own at the time. :)

Comment: Thanks for the fish postcard! (and the Campanella stamp too). The season of giant fish is almost upon us here (sturgeon spearing in Feb) and the first truck hasn't gone thru the ice yet. Tho some unfortunate man took his boat on the river when it was 85% iced over. I live next door to the Mercury Marine testing facility and they sent out one of their testing boats (with six motors on the rear) to stir up the water a little. At least the sheriff didn't have to break up the hovercraft. Ahh..ice fishing season. Susan (brooklynbunch)

Comment: Thank you very much for your great selection of 5 PC's & the extra! You mentioned in your note, you couldn't find Sugarland PC's. Have you checked Zazzle.com? As I have seen them there. They are like $1.20 & $1.25 a piece. If you can't find a certain PC, Zazzle usually has them. Have a great night!
