About Me

50 year old married pharmacist with two kids and two nephews we are raising. I've belonged to postcard exchange groups (at Yahoo) for fifteen years and used to own and/or moderate several myself. I like foreign, map, and animal postcards as well as military and automotive. I collect baseball caps and tee-shirts as well as postcards. By the way, I sponsor a lot of swaps on Swap-Bot, both in groups and individually. If you are ever flaked on contact me and I will be happy to angel for that swap.

I always rate. If I didn't rate you it's because I never received your swap.

One of the nice ladies on this site asked me to put the kids' ages on, so here goes: boy 19 (1st year college), boy 17 (12th grade), boy 17 (11th grade), girl 13 (7th grade). The girl rides horses and likes girly stuff. The boys are rough and tumble but also like video games and sports. All three boys are in track and on swim teams.

My 13-year old daughter loves stickers and decorates all my envelopes and postcards with them. She even puts them on bill envelopes that are mailed. I told her that they probably go thru some kind of sorting machine and that people would probably never see them. She said "maybe someone would, like the mail carrier, and they would get a smile from them." We know all our mail carriers by name and speak to them when we see them.

Favorite Music

Rock and Rockabilly. Hate rap.

Favorite Books

Picture books, seriously, those big coffee table books with large clear pictures. I have a lot of those with magazine photos like Look and Life and dozens with historic buildings and castles. I also collect foreign language dictionaries and baseball caps. I also have a million tee-shirts which wife would like me to part with.

Favorite Movies

Enjoy superhero and sci fi movies but usually wait until we can rent them.

Favorite Television

Live Kelly & Ryan, The Incredible Dr. Pol, Ellen, Hot Bench, Preacher, Midnight TX, Animal ER, Fear the Walking Dead, Walking Dead, not a fan of Network News or Late Night Talk Shows.

POSTCARD PREFERENCES

I like animals and birds (favorites are horses, dogs, wild cats, elephants, zebras, colorful tropical birds and frogs). I also like UNESCO sites, castles, religious buildings, old stone forts and bridges, whole country maps, flags, uniforms and anything military, native costumes, and anything colorful, historic, or interesting. I prefer cards unused, clean, newer, without smoke or mildew smell and in an envelope.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful map of India. It always excites me to get a map from a different country than the USA. I love collecting country maps.

Comment: I was really confused when your envelop arrived, because my painting professor's name is Richard Young! You can find his work at ralanyoung dot com. Anyway thank you for the photos! As a landscape photographer, I don't think of capturing those architectural water settings, so that was a fun change!
Response: I am glad you liked the photos. My middle name is Alan too. Stay safe, Rich

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful elephant postcard. It is a shame that they are endangered. I've seen them in zoos, but would love to see them in the wild one day. Thanks for hosting this swap, too, I enjoyed it. Take care!
