Response: Thank you so much for saying that. If we all do our part to make positive environmental changes, no matter how small, people notice and it creates a larger change in society. I hope that you have a wonderful day! Best, Rick

Response: I'm so happy that the PC finally arrived! Thanks for the compliments on the PC, I've been thinking of a good project using repurposed materials, and thought that reusing the security envelops as art would be cool. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Best, Rick

Comment: Hi! Thanks for the postcard. I am not a tea drinker myself, but a coffee drinker. I was not aware of that brand of tea so I can't really comment on it. Normally in family tend to go for Yorkshire tea, PG tips or Tetley Tea.
Response: I haven't tried Tetley Tea before, I'll keep an eye out for that one. Cheers!

Comment: love using inside security envelopes... And - it was in the 20's here last night! (I read your temp along the edge!)
Response: I wish we stayed colder longer, but Arizona always seems to break 100F by the end of April. The summers are hot, but without humidity (we start complaining around 20%), so that's a plus. Happy swapping, RIck

Comment: Rick, thank you for the horned bear PC -I really like the very detailed drawing! The eclipse was great!! After days of cloudy predictions, the sun shined with a few wispy clouds, so viewing was excellent….u til just before totality when a big cumulus covered the sun & threatened to block the actual total eclipse. Ppl were on waiting scared to exhale…but then the cumulus drifted and we got to see the whole effect: it for dark like twilight , auto lights came on, the temperature dropped about 10-15°, birds quieted but roosters crowed, and you could hear ppl all over lahhh”ing & applauding….a really fun communal experience. It didn’t seem to last r.5 minutes though; more like 1 minute. Dunno if that was b/c of cloud? Anyway, it was excellent!
Response: I'm envious that you were able to have such an amazing experience and glad that the couldn't didn't ruin the experience. I love to swap with you and look forward to our next exchange. Best, Rick

Comment: Thank you for the woodpecker postcard. I do like them and we get several here on our farm in Nebraska. Downy woodpeckers like the suet we put out. Sometimes get a Pilated woodpecker on a half dead tree the tire swing is on. Thank you
Response: Very cool. It's too hot in AZ (even some days in winter) to put out suet...it just melts in our heat. I wonder if there's another food that they might eat. I need to do some research. Best, Rick

Comment: Thank you for the crispy chunk and communication about it. I'm generally a purist, won't even eat the store bought ones because all I taste is preservatives. A couple decades ago I was known for my vegan peanut butter version around Portland, OR (named Ludacrisps by a friend) though I prefer the original myself.
Response: Agreed, the store bought ones are bad, really bad, I never eat those. Love the "Ludacrisps" name, that's epic! Best, Rick!

My previous roommate & I hiked at Zion & Death Valley, but we had to part ways before making it to Yosemite. BTW, your stamps weren't cancelled. Want me to send them back to you?

The postmark is on the picture side of the postcard which is excellent - the front shows where it hails from and has the seasonal holiday postmark greeting, and the vintage stamps on the back are unmarred. Nicely deco'd back, too. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Comment: I love the parcel pickup Christmas Bear!!! Our Christmas tradition started 11 years ago with the birth of my youngest granddaughter. The 4 grandgirls (and their parents) are so busy with all their extra curricular activities that we decided to have Cousins Christmas on the second weekend in December rotating homes every year. It is so fun!!

You didn't say if your son liked his legally imbibed pumpkin beer? What ever little round sticker was at the bottom did not survive the trip but the skull and bones washi looks great. Take care!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! Receiving this piece of happy mail made my day. I don't remember how I got into making paracord bracelets. But when I do make them, I donate them to Operation Gratitude (OG). OG makes care packages for those serving in our military and I wanted to find a way to thank those that protect the US. OG does accept letters and thank you notes if you don't have time to make bracelets. Just another way to give back. Take care and keep on swapping...

I really enjoy packaging that shows what's contained and sometimes it's better than the contents, lol. Overall, your handwriting is really wonderful and the variety of ink you used was a nice touch, not to mention the postmark. This card will be a great addition to my collection of chunks.

Comment: Thank you for the Golden Hare bookstore postcard with book washi and stickers. I don't shop bookstores much these days but my go to is Half Price Books in Concord at the Willows shopping center. It is also the only place I've found postcards in this area but it's just a small spinning rack on the counter. They do also have some postcard books mainly in their stationary section but I found a book of shoe postcards in the clothing/fashion section so you just have to search. Also friends of the Pleasant Hill Library have a new store by the mall. I haven't checked it out yet.

Comment: I LOVE postcard (black cat directing singing jack-o-lanterns)! Thank you so much. Yes, I celebrated Day of the Dead during my years in Mexico. At work there would always be a huge communal altar, and sometimes I´d make a small one at home.. My favorite part was going to the market and seeing all the DotD wares for sale—fresh flowers, papel picado, sugar skulls and other seasonal edible things, etc.—and smelling the awesome incense! That is truly a feast for all the senses.

Comment: * Deep Space Nine! * Shatner is an asshole, and so is Kirk. Patrick Stewart is a gift to the fandom, and so is Picard. * Spock and Data are both awesome, but Spock spends his life trying to come to terms with his humanity whereas Data embraces whatever humanity he can get his hands on. Also, Data has a cat.
Response: DS9...nice. I didn't watch much of that series, just select episodes that my friends curated for me. Totes agree on Shatner/Kirk. I love the take on Spock and Data, you hit the nail on the head. Data is my favorite, but I do like Spock a lot too. Oh ya, Spot rocks!

Comment: Thanks for the cool Monopoly chunk o'cardboard. The most valuable stamp I ever saw sold by my boss was a red monkey stamp from PRC. That was a few thousand dollars. The most expensive stamp I've ever seen is also the rarest. The British Guiana one cent magenta which is on display at the National Postal Museum in Washington DC. They also have a block of the Inverted Jenny which I think of as the coolest stamp. It is a movie star and very important plot point of Brewster's Millions with Eddie Murphy. Another notable stamp that we had for sale is the Penny Black. The first postage stamp ever issued.

Comment: Hi Rick- Thanks for taking the time to read my profile & sharing your National Park interests with me too. We actually just returned from Glacier Nat’l Pk. We chose to stay on the east side. We did not know they would have such a rough winter when we made our reservations a year ago. That’s the only way you can stay in the park there, by making them that far in advance. They said it was one of their worst winters. We could not drive on the road that goes all the way through the park due to unmelted snow. That sounds so crazy to me in June coming from TX!!! The weather felt great to us in the 60’s & 70’s. But to answer your question my favorite park has been Arches. I love Utah!! Everything there is so pretty w the orange rock. Capitol Reef is also in Utah & is a hidden gem!! My husband loves Grand Canyon!! He has done several rim to rim trips with buddies of his. They also did one as a father daughter trip which was one to remember!! I could go on & on about the parks!! So much beauty in the USA!!! Thanks for your thoughtful card & Happy Crafting!!
Response: National Parks are the coolest, right?!? We ran onto some snow/road closure issues when we visited the Great Smoky Mountains NP. The Newfound Gap road was close and we couldn't get to some scenic areas of the park. No worries, the Smoky Mountains have no shortage of scenic areas. Arches is on your list, as are all of the UT NPs. Great Basin (NV) is on my short list to visit, but it's hard to get to (towing a trailer from AZ...and that's how I'd like to stay there). Soon enough though, soon enough. I'm envious of the GC Rim to Rim. My wife and I did Havasupai several years ago (from the Southern Rim on the Western end of the park to the Native American Havasupai village on the canyon floor, and it was magical. I'd like to do it again, but it's closed to the public now. Anywhoo, happy swapping with you and I hope our paths cross again! Best, Rick

Response: My pleasure. It was great to swap you with you! I do some lose leaf at work too...but it's a lot to keep up. A coworker gave me a brewstick by B& Co (UK), and it makes loose leaf at work a lot more accessable. Anywhoo, I'll see you in the swap-o-verse! Best, Rick

Response: I'm going to have to check out Oden's Ravens and Crazy Cat Lady...my wife and I are always looking for 2-player games as our son is in college, still lives at home, but has a lot of his own adventures going on. Yep, we hit 100F last month...it always seems to hit 100F before the end of April. Ugh...now for the long, hot summer.

Comment: Thanks for the great card! Looks like an illustration from a picture book from my childhood. :) I never did a lot of trick or treating as a kid, or with my kids. Now "trunk or treat" seems to be the popular thing - decorating the trunk of your car and having out in a parking lot for the kids to go around and visit. Interesting idea! Hope you have a great holiday. :)
Response: Too funny. We've never done the 'trunk or treat' thing, but I'm aware of the practice. It sort of 'came to be' as our son was nearing the teenage 'phase out' of trick-or-treating. Seems fun! Makes me wonder....do the fancy cars have the 'full-size candy bars' just like the fancy houses do? : )

Comment: Hello there Rick! 😀 I thank you very much, for the Black bear PC and your so nice note! That's pretty neat, you found this PC at a General store while camping! I love these Fact PC's though, telling about the animal. We have black bears & also brown bears here in Canton, PA. We live in a rural town, atop a mountain & see esp. the black bears. They are very irritating when it comes to my bird feeders. I don't leave them up at night anymore. Because they eat up all the bird seed and then destroy the feeder, gr-r-r! I love the bears, don't get me wrong. But dislike them when they ruin my things. Oh, Had one destroy our outdoor food freezer once and they ate up all our loaves of bread ( 10 of them ) and all the frozen meats as well. All that money down the drain, ho hum!
Response: Wow! What crazy stories! I've seen bears (and deer) eating from bird feeders on YouTube...I would have never thought they'd do that! Too crazy! I wish you the best with your "bear-proofing" Deb. ~ Rick

Comment: Thank you Rick, for the pin up postcard. I really love it! Gil Elvgren (and Fritz Willis) are my favorite classic pin up artists. I personally don't have a preference between vintage and modern pin ups. I really like Suicide Girls, for modern though. I agree, finding vintage ones can be hard. Most of the vintage postcards I've found feature real women instead of illustrations. I received a few vintage style postcards in swap, and I used one for this swap. You can find pin up style postcards on Etsy. They would feature the artist's prints, but many artists do draw their own version of classic pin ups.

Comment: Thanks! A lovely postcard, I've read about Route 66, in many books set there, as well as historical stops along the way. Did you ride your bike on it? It might be a nice bike ride at that, wonder if there is a bike road trip along the route?
Response: We driven all of it in AZ, a lot in CA, and visited the ends is CA and IL. I’d love to ride my bike the length of it...some day. Some parts don’t exist anymore and some are completely untainted. It’s good to know the history because I feel that it’s fading away. It’s good that we’re both doing our part to keep the memory alive. Best, Rick

Response: Thank you. I'm so happy that you looked into Yule and found some interesting stuff. At the end of Yule (it asts several days), on New Year's Eve, we burned the Yule Log in our backyard fire pit. We each wrote down our resolutions/intentions of paper and burned them in the fire. 2020 was an odd year, and 2021 seems that it will be better, but still not "normal", so we wanted to try out some new things.

Comment: Hi Rick, thank you for this recycled postcard! My husband works for the EPA. But we have not switched to bamboo tp yet! The best thing I’ve experienced is a bidet toilet at a local restaurant it not only has a heated seat but it provides a wash and dry function that even blows dry the nether region! I laughed that I’d never leave the bathroom!! They’re pricey but imagine never having to buy tp again. How much do we spend on tp every year!
Response: Works for the EPA? So cool! The bamboo is a little 'different', but it's not that bad. We try to do what we can to make a difference in the world, eco-friendly products are just a small step in making the world a better place. We got a bidet in April too. I like it, but the blow dryer not so much. It seems to start out fine, but as the heated air ramps up it's less than comfortable. Best, Rick

Comment: My goodness, you have itty bitty handwriting! Thanks for the card. The recipe looks interesting. But what is "two packets of italian seasoning". A packet? I don't think I've ever seen packets.
Response: Yes, I do! I always like to write a lot on PCs and tend to write small...the 0.28 nib on my pens helps out quite a bit! About the "two packets of Italian sesoning"...that was supposed to be "two packets of Italian dressing mix'. We didn't have those on hand, so my wife googled how to make your own from herbs/seasoning commonly on hand. We saw several YouTubers making the crackers (some called them "Fire Crackers" or "Swamp Crackers") and tinkered with the recipe a bit (we opted for a little more rec chili flakes). If you search the internet/YouTube, you'll find several variations. Some people used Ranch Dressing Mix, but we don't eat dairy. I like the crackers as I tend to want savory snacks, not sweet. I hope that you make them and that you find them a tasty as we do! Best, Rick

Big thanks also for using vintage postage stamps and the festive green-red decor you added to the back! Much appreciated!! To answer your Qs: I prefer photography, but the more illustrations I am exposed to, the more they’re “growing on me” 😂 I was just introduced to the photos first, so that’s sorta “all I knew”...oh, and my cards are from the postcard shows I’ve attended here in Florida. Seems there’s a lot of the “old timers” who collected them earlier, and now their kids are selling them off to dealers...there’s another reason to appreciate your wonderful family (they appreciate the lost art of sending a postcard still)!!! Best of holiday wishes to you and yours 🎄🎉 💕From me & mine 😉 🌺🤙🏽❤️ 12/9/2020 Card #2 of Nancy Sinatra was delivered today! It’s one-of-a-kind & a happy addition to my PC collection! I can’t believe it’s a photo of her wax figure though! OMG - it looks so real!

My favorite player is Gerardo Parra who played in the outfield with the Brewers for a short time.

Comment: Thank you for the great pinup card! Better too much postage than not enough. :) May I ask what kind of pen you use?
Response: You're welcome! I like to play around with a lot of pens, but my favorite seems to be the Uniball Signo DX 0.38 - that's what I used to write the body. I used the Pentel Energel 0.3 to block the "Please Kindly Deliver" and a Pilot G-2 0.38 for the red/green. I find that the Signo provides the best 'flow' and is the smoothest on most papers. The Signo comes in a 0.28 (I really like ultra fine nibs), but I haven't used it yet (I have both the 0.38 and 0.5). Some people rave about the Zebra Sarasa (I have that is a 0.3 and 0.5), but it's not my favorite. Anyway, I'm glad that you liked the pin-up, it's not often that I get to send those. Best, Rick

Comment: Very cute vintage looking card and sweet message! I love the decorating you did on the text and the cool stamps. I will definitely send you some stamps! You will be helping me get them off my hands. A decluttered office would be a Christmas miracle at this point. LOL! Happy Holidays!
Response: That's so kind of you. I've been collecting stamps for a while now and would love to add to my collection! I get some really cool stamps on PCs, but don't pull them off because I don't want to damage the cards. Thank you so much!

Comment: I had to look up this film. One of the reviews said "Melancholia will haunt you for days, maybe weeks," It sounds like it did. Thanks for the review. Susan (brooklynbunch)
Response: Ugh, Melancholia. It's a joke in my house that we reference for wasting time/the worst things ever. If you're a masochist, give it a watch, but I'm not endorsing it in any way. ; )

Comment: I LOVED this. This is the most thoughtful letter I have ever received. I have read it several times already. My favorite part of swapbot are the letters and I love when I get one. I cant tell you how much I want to try a fire-pit turkey! I have even googled it to see if it's something I dare try! Thank you so much for sharing those wonderful memories with me! Happy holidays!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it, your kind words mean a lot to me. I try to always write from the heart as, if one is taking the time to write/read a letter, it should be straight and true. I look forward to swapping with you again. Best, Rick

Response: It IS weird how childhood food brings comfort...I still have the occasional 'mustard sandwich' (literally mustard and bread, nothing else) as I remember having them as snacks when I was young. Thank you for complementing my handwriting, that was very nice of you. It's funny, when I look at it all I see is room for improvement. You're very sweet.

Comment: Hi again! As I said before, both swaps came at the same time. First off, Thank you very much for joining my swap for this. Thank you for your note, the cute vampire card, and all the Halloween stickers. Loving them! Yes, sure we can correspond. But I hope you don't mind, That I write on a large note card. I used to pen pal from 1974 to 2008. I gave it all up, due to health & I needed to get that in order & I just couldn't force myself to go back to it, being a way from it for so many years. As I felt that I was tied to it & seemed like a chore after awhile. Because the pen pals were very demanding & expecting a letter within a week's time. I just couldn't do it. Now, It may take me a bit to get back you. if that doesn't bother you, then great!
Response: Too funny, I don't want to give a spoiler, but don't be shocked if you get a 3rd card from "Arizona". Anyway, I look forward to continuing our chat, I send you a direct message. Best, Rick.

I absolutely love it & your note as well. Will get to about what you wrote on the other swap, since you wrote about the same thing in the card too.
Response: My pleasure, I'm glad that you liked the PC I chose. We'll chat soon. Best, Rick.

Response: I do remember those spin offs, but I found that I was a traditionalist mostly enjoing the classic Archie, and Betty & Veronica. Some of the new spinoffs are pretty good too, I really enjoyed Afterlife and Vampironica I really appreciate swapping with you and wish you the best!

Comment: A Halloween pin-up girl?! My cup runneth over! And damn that's some slick handwriting! There's some Apache trout to be had in Arizona... but not Woods Canyon Lake. I ain't "nevah but nevah" caught anything there. The best trout fishing is further north in Arizona. My favorite trout fishing is actually in Montana around Bozeman and West Yellowstone.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. When I saw that you like pin-ups, I knew that I had the perfect card. I've pulled trout out of Woods Canyon and Willow Springs, but only fishing off a boat..."nevah" from the shore! My favorite northern Arizona spot is Hawley Lake, but it requires a separate set of permits/licenses as it's on the WMAT reservation. Anywho, glad that you liked the card.

Comment: Cool card! Funny that series is my 1st leisure read too. Opened a whole world of book for me. I havent read in a while though unless you count Audible.
Response: I TOTALLY count audible (if I didn't, I'd barely "read" at all). Funny aside, I read an article a while back about a brainwave study...the study said that audio books stimulate the brain the same way reading text does. I thought that was cool and a great argument point for those that "don't think audio books are real books". BAM! How do you like them apples! Best, Rick

I met someone on postcrossing who has a child similar age and we have agreed to let them penpal. So you have to start them early, right?!! You have great penmanship too! It was nice to get a card that you can easily read the writing!! THat is always a plus! Thanks again so very much!
