Comment: Hello Richard,
Thankyou for the cool chrissy card!
It reaches 30+ C nearly every day in Darwin. The difference between the seasons is the humidity - in the wet season usually 70-100% and in the dry, less than 70%.
If you ever visit Darwin, make sure you come in the dry season - may to july
Comment: Thank you for the postcard of Edinburgh and the list of famous people you admire. It's definitely a very good list. I'm not sure if I should mention names so will just say I totally agree with your #1. A big thumbs up and an even bigger "red heart" ❤ sincerely, Alma
Comment: Hi! Thanks for the awesome postcard! Ireland is one of my favorite places to visit and I really like Dublin! The Irish people are so nice. I took my youngest son over to Ireland and England for almost a month on my last trip there and he loved it too!
Comment: Thank you ! Thank you! Thank you! I love the selection you sent. Funny story we have close friends that we have an inside joke about fire hydrants and well that’s going in the mail to them and I know you will hear them laughing from knoxville. Happy swapping
Comment: Thank you for the Lt Commander Data card. I still watch the different Star Trek series more than any other Sci-Fi series. I have even watched the new ones and I am waiting for the new seasons.
Comment: Thank you for the nice postcards. I have never seen one of Disney California Adventure, very cool. My family is from Wapakoneta, Ohio, where Neil Armstrong is from so that card is very cool too! I hope all is well with you and that you have a wonderful day!
Comment: Hi Rich! 👋 Thanks so much for these fantastic postcards. I love the map ones the most, and the owl.🦉 Oh and the skunk! And the oodles of cats. I love all of the extras. You truly put a smile on my face, thank you! Take care 🤗
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: Hi Richard! Thank you for the lovely share with your photos and backstory for them! A visit to Alaska is on my bucket list and your photos helped enforce that! Wishing you all the best and please stay safe! Hugs, Happy Snapping, and Swapping! ;)
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!
Comment: Hello, Rich. Thank you for the postcard. The black dog is cool. Did it snow over there? It snowed a little in Tokyo, but it didn't pile up. Thank you for hosting this swap. I hope you have a safe and comfortable winter-Mina :)
Response: Hello, today February 5 we have 20cm of snow on the ground and it is currently (11:00) -9 C. I hope your winter is not too freezing. Be well. Rich
Comment: MOSCOW!!! Wow!! I haven't gotten any swaps from Russia since I have been swapping. I thought that was a US building. But I guess Roman design is everywhere so I don't know why I assume that :) Thanks so much for sharing.
Comment: First, thank you for the cards. All winners. Second, you sent me another swap in the same Christmas card. I made it into a post card for another swap. Dang cute! Always great swapping with you, Rich.
Comment: Thank you. I wonder who the pretty starlet is.
Response: Carole Lombard (born Jane Alice Peters; October 6, 1908 – January 16, 1942) was an American actress, particularly noted for her energetic, often off-beat roles in screwball comedies. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Lombard 23rd on its list of the greatest female stars of Classic Hollywood Cinema.
Comment: Hi Rich, great bear photo, I've never been that close, not even there! Thank you too for the fun bonus postcard with the wild kittens -- so, so cute! I also enjoyed the purple Halloween stamp with bats that you used, always great to have you as my partner! Hope your oldest is staying safe in college.
Comment: Thanks for the cute cat card. Hard to believe the plus 4 didn't get that here! I can tell my normal postal person wasn't working. She would probably have gotten it. Anyways I am well and hope you are too.
Comment: Thank you for the cool Canada map card. Yes, I have been to Canada twice and was supposed to spend a week there a few years ago but unfortunately broke my ankle and had to cancel. Hope you are having a lovely spring!
Comment: Thank you Rick! I love Peonies and Irises. I also have both of them in my garden. Shame the Peonies are in bloom for such a short period. But they have a lush foliage that does bring hight to the garden after they've bloomed. All the best to you Rick!
Comment: Thank you (and your daughter) for sharing these very pretty handmade envelopes! My favorites are the tiny one made with newsprint and the one made using a map of The Assyrian Empire in 824 B.C.
You’re a great Dad to do this kind of swap for her to have some different kinds of envelopes! Anytime she wants more, just ask. I’m always happy to set-up private swaps for handmade envies!!!
Comment: Thank you for the Elvis recipe postcard. As for pecan pie. I don't much care for it. Like you, it's too rich. But I am also allergic to nuts. At least I got to try the pie, before I found that out. It stinks! As I had loved nuts.
Comment: Hi Richard! Oh my goodness! You certainly send me a lot! For this I wish the rating system could do more hearts. Well deserved! Thank you for the beautiful bracelet, clothes pins, bookmarks, and magnet list pad! I absolutely love everything!
Comment: Hi Rich, very cool stamps, and I love this card. Have not seen this ep, but love the Doctor. I just hauled in a bunch of stamps on ebay. They just add so much character to each card. THANKS! :):):)
Comment: I have not heard of alternative history before.
Response: Thank you for the rating, just rereading the swap I realize I had to do that too. Yes, alternative history is fascinating. Two of my favorites are "Man in the High Tower" about the US losing WWII and what happend to us Americans and "Salt and Rice" about all of Europeans dying from the Black Plague in the Middle Ages, so no white Christians to dominate world history.
Comment: They both arrived two days ago. The first one is postmarked twice, so I guess it was delivered to the wrong address and was popped back in the mail. Weird! Thank you for sending the replacement for the one we thought lost.
Comment: I'm enjoying your yellow swaps. Looking forward to the next one. Your golden yellow Moroccan rug postcard is quite nice. I like that it's a piece from your state's Museum of Art. Thank you for sharing it with me.
Comment: Hi Rich! Thanks for hosting such a fun swap! Anything with photos and flowers, I am in! LOL! Your flowers looked pretty but you are right, it has been so dang rainy - the grass and weeds are loving it though!! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thanks for this great PC! We have tons of eagles by us, golden as well as bald. They are pretty vocal! A few years ago, when we went to stay on Alf Island for a few days, we saw a pair every 500 yards up Uyak Bay for an 8 mile+ stretch. That's a lot of eagles! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Rich, Thanks so much for the Chicago PC. I haven't been there in years. I love how the sun is reflecting on the buildings. Thank you! How did the banquet go? We were a swimming family too. My older brother got a scholarship to Exeter, NH, and broke a Jr. Olympic Butterfly record there. We were all on summer swim teams through high school. Thanks again! Swim on... oh, I mean, Swap on! LOL
Response: It was a brief banquet, not too many speakers which was okay with me. The oldest boy is a junior in high school so they will be leaving the nest soon. My baby girl has lots of years left with daddy though. lol
Comment: Thank you so much for the super cute pup postcard! Animals are wonderful, but definitely require attention and some work :) We have cats, which are much more independent and easier lol! Thanks for swapping!
Comment: Hi Richard! Thank you for the awesome photos from Istanbul, Turkey! It always looks so exotic to me but I am really not sure I would ever want to visit! Did you like it there! Thank you for the lovely share! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Like most cities it's best not to stray too far from the touristy areas. Lots of immigrants from Africa, Syria, and even as far away as Afghanistan. The Middle East is full of trouble spots and people fleeing their home countries. Lots of stuff we don't hear about in our news programs. They are too full of fluff and Hollywood. I don't watch TV much for information about what is going on in our country or the world.
Comment: Since she broke her silence with a little sigh, I now want to know what Elizabeth said. LOL! Thanks for the lovely card.
Response: Elizabeth has just run into the man who proposed to her. A rejected suitor and he acted like he didn't know her. She's kind of upset. I forget her exact words but I know she is wondering why he didn't acknowledge her.
Comment: Thanks for this great "Sunken Treasure" PC! I don't see any in Alaska, LOL! We have sunken ships right here in Uyak Bay! They found it, finally, opposite of where they expected it. It was called the Aleutian and only took 7 minutes to sink. The rock it hit is named after it. Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Wow, Richard, thanks so much for the cool cards. I especially loved the Chicago water tower card. It reminded me of a time in 1994 when I was there and there is a photo of me kissing a friend in front of the water tower. I had almost forgotten it! Happy swapping :):):)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful cat postcard with beautiful stamps. Absolutely LOVE John Lennon stamps :) I have 3 cats. One is ginger (tabby), one is black and one is black with a touch of white. Two of them my brother once found in a scrap yard next to his workplace. Black and white is half-Persian cat.
Comment: What a great card! :) And love the stamp too. We had a tow along too growing up and never went far with it..but don't really need to go too far to get out into the wild areas here :) Thank you
Comment: Thank you so much! I love seeing where other people live, what their towns look like and learning about the places they see and visit every day! This is a really fun swap and I hope you will consider hosting it again!!
Thanks SO much! ~ Gabi
Comment: Hi Rich, thank you for the cattle PC, is that a "long horn" ? The weather is fabulous here on the island, lots of sunshine, but over on the mainland in the interior of BC they are getting horrific flooding. Some areas are being evacuated. They are calling it a "Historical" flood conditions. Happy Spring swapping. peace love light
Comment: Richard I was ill when I received you PC but wanted to rate you right away - but also I wanted to take the time now to thank you properly. I loved the PC because of all the places you can visit on it as well as Napoleon's quote. I have not seen the Easter seal stamps either, I have fond memories of them from PC from my childhood. Thank you again
Comment: Rich, thank you for the great carousel postcard. My grandchildren ride this one all the time on the Vineyard. It is great that they are restoring so many of these. I guess I am still a kid at heart because I still ride them at 75. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for the eagle postcard. We have a huge park (600 acres) in town and there are 2 pair of Bald Eagles that nest there. I have seen them many, many times. Years ago there was a pair of Osprey that nested there as well, but they haven't been back.
Comment: Thank you so much for this Southwest Desert Wildlife postcard, Rich! That's so neat that you have most in Indiana. Which ones don't you have there? Gambel's Quail? Or coyotes? :-) Thank you so much for sharing!
Response: I am not a hunter so I'm not sure if we have quail or not. Occasionally someone will report a coyote and everyone panics. We have deer that come into our yard and cardinals are the state bird.
Comment: Thank you! Mom and I visited Pisa some years ago but didn't do the climb. Just say at a cafe with a nice drink and people & Leaning tower watched :) thanks for the nice pc. And I hope it doesn't fall! I know they are always actively reinforcing or supporting it or something.
Response: Actually there are several leaning bell towers like this one in Italy. This one is Pisa is just the most famous. There are several more in Pisa and about 7 or 8 in the rest of Italy. The one in Venice was more popular years ago than the one in Pisa.
Comment: Hi Rick! I actually really like the postcard, it's very original and quite funny. You are right that it's not exactly pretty but I would not call it ugly in the slightest! Definitely catches the eye :) Thank you.
Comment: Superb choice of postcard for the letter H thank you very much. I also like the Indiana postage stamp and the added info of date, time and weather temperature are little details on a postcard that make me smile :)
Comment: Than you for the lovely PC! The lighthouse I sent you is celebrating its 150th anniversary this weekend. While no longer in use, it has a gift shop, tours, and you can go to the top. If you serve as a summer volunteer, you can live in the upstairs living quarters free of charge during your service! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Sable_Point_Light
Comment: Rick, What an amazing building! Not what we'd find in the US since our roots are not that deep and we are a relatively young nation. But my travels are not that extensive and I may be unaware of some beauties in New England and the other Atlantic states that were settled in the beginning years of this new world. Thanks for a really beautiful card!
Comment: Gone with the Wind was my parents' and my in-laws' favorite movie. My husband was named Ashley after the character in the film. If they would have had a girl, her name would have been Melanie. Thank you.
Comment: Thanks for an interesting card--I love birds, and this one is fascinating and one I've never know about. It looks a bit like he's wearing his white bowtie with his black tails--all ready for the fancy dinner party.
I was at Purdue for 9 years and definitely liked Indiana. I cannot remember where Lowell is. I'd love to go back to Lafayette and stay a while. I miss the four seasons here on the Gulf Coast.
Tell your daughter I like the ladybug and clover leaf---I'm assuming she added that!
Enjoy the postcards you are swapping!
Response: Hey, I went to school at Purdue, Lafayette too. Great town. Lowell up in the NW corner of Indiana. About 50 miles from Chicago. We get Chicago TV here. Have a great summer!
Comment: Card above your address had diagonal tear wiping out some letters. Picture has too small print to catch much meaning. I think it is some kind of water of connoisseurs. Alcohol, perhaps.Form with string??
Response: I honestly don't remember what I sent. Would you like me to send another card? No problem at all. Message me if you want me to resend. I don't think you can respond to a response.
Comment: Hi Rich, Thank you so much for the amazing postcards. I love them, plus the extra one and covering note with a dog. I had not seen round barns like those in Indiana before now. If I could give you extra hearts, I would! Thanks again, Jenny. :)
Response: Round barns used to be quite common in the Midwest. From what I've read they were easier and quicker to build. Not being an architect I don't know why that would be. Only a few left now. We have one on a working farm in our county. The farmhouse is also round.
Comment: Great cards, Rich. I've always been a New Yorker fan & love those covers. The Air Stream series is a hoot & I haven't seen them before. Thank you very much.
Love the Cuban Airlines sticker too!
Comment: Thank you! Nice choice of stickers. Loved how you put the temp in Celsius, I noticed that first thing. Winter has been an odd one this year with more snow than usual and warmer temps. Not complaining though. :)
Comment: Thank you for this adorable Mickey and Minnie Mouse postcard from Florida, Rich! I love how it has the "animated" Mickey and Minnie hugging against a real-life Florida beach background! :-) Thank you for sharing! (And thank you for hosting!)
Comment: Lieber Richard, vielen Dank fÃ¼r deine schÃ¶ne Postkarte. Dein Deutsch ist noch richtig gut. Bravo. Warst du vielleicht bei mir in der NÃ¤he stationiert? Ich lebe zwischen Rammstein und Mannheim/Heidelberg ;-) liebe grÃ¼ÃŸe isa
Response: Ich war in Giebelstadt und Berlin stationiert. Ich war auch in der TÃ¼rkei und Arabien stationiert. Danke, Rich.
Comment: Rich, thank you for the postcards. Especially thank you for the New Jersey lighthouses one. It is new to my collection. I think this is the first postcard I have of New Jersey lighthouses. Shirley
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard of a Mama Giraffe with Baby. I think giraffes are rather strange, too, because. . . How do their spindly legs support their weight? :-) Thanks again for sharing!
Comment: Love the postcard! The horses are Kladrubers - the oldest Czech breed. They are colored like Arabians, but bigger and stockier - think white Clydesdale. They were bred to draw royal carriages. My father was into horses so I'm a fan, too.
Response: hey, thanks for the info, glad you liked the card.
Comment: Great PC - Utah is a favorite vacation spot of mine - I used to travel there for work and didn't get to see much, until I stayed a few extra days one time..and then I just had to go back with family to see more. Great swap..sorry for the delay in rating. Take care, Annette
Comment: Rich ~ Long time, no see! Thanks so much for the great PCs for this swap. Although they are all great, I especially like the little bear cub and the B&W with the monkey -- who drives around in a convertible with a monkey!! Thanks so much and hope you're doing great and had a wonderful summer ~
Comment: Thanks for the postcard. I've been to Chicago only twice since I moved to MN even though it's the closest big city. That's about to change because my brother and his family have just moved there from Boston.
Comment: I'm extremely sorry for the late rating. I found a bunch of postcards that fell down behind the couch. I've been going crazy looking for them again I'm extremely sorry for the late rating Thank you for the Wonderful postcard.
Comment: What great photos! I was born and spent a few years in Kokomo, then on to Bloomington for a few more before we moved out of Indiana. But I have always had relatives in Kokomo and in Windfall (small town in Tipton County). Your photos remind me a lot of Windfall and a few other small towns nearby. What a shame they tore down that school building! Thanks so much for some great photos!
Response: I've been to Kokomo, but usually when I head the word I think of the Beach Boys' song. LOL
Comment: What a generous package you sent. Each card is a brilliant representation of our gorgeous country. Thank you for each one. I will cherish them and then send them onto other people who will join me in appreciating the land. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Comment: Wonderful B & W photo - I am going to start putting them on the wall. Looking forward to more swaps. Sorry to be late in rating this - just back on computer (last time at Christmas I guess) and just reading my mail. It's full of nice suprises. Thanks for the wonderful photo.
Comment: Rich, My apologies - I thought I'd rated this right away as I was so excited when I opened it. I thought your card was awesome and I think I am going to frame it and put it up on the wall. Chris crispycritter
Comment: Thank you for the swap Richard. Love the UNESCO postcards - all new views to me! The note cards are adorable. Don't have a single note card with a Christmas design!. Now about the calendar - if your ears burn thru out the year you only have yourself to blame, because I'll probably be cussin" you when I am eating those things!!! LMAO. Great swap. Thank you
Comment: Thank you Richard for the postcard view of Venice. Yes, sadly, Venice is a city that is sinking as it is in a lagoon. I wonder if modern day marine technology could find ways to keep the city from sinking away? Happy October!
Comment: Thank you Richard for the black cat vintage Halloween postcard you sent to me for the swap! No, I'm not related to Trish Smith. "Smith" so common name. It is interesting though to have people with same last name yet not related. Hope you have a Happy Halloween!
Comment: Rich ~ Love the PCs you sent for this swap. The construction worker on the Empire State Building is fantastic and the white Panasonic radio is great. The AF Academy PC is a good one for the Academy. . . I've been there several times and it is a beautiful place and the chapel is spectacular. Thanks again for the wonderful PCs ~
Comment: Hi Rich, thank you for the pc(Dunes state park), love the muted colours(canada spells color with a u)...great pc, glad you made it , I prefer these ones...hope you are having a lovely day.Happy spring swapping :)xx
Comment: Hi Richard, I am so, so sorry this rating is so late. I can't thank you enough for your, oh so adorable, puppy in the snow picture/postcard! And the others are so awesome too! Thank you, thank you!
Comment: Thanks, Rich. Wonderful photo card. Wish my mail could be delivered to such a lovely mailbox. No Spring weather here in SW Florida. It's already summer, with temps reaching 90 most days. Gonna be a long one...
Comment: I think someone took the time to look at my profile, and I can't thank you enough!! These are my 2 favorite characters from my all-time favorite Disney movie...and, this is my favorite scene!! You couldn't have sent a more perfect card!! If there was a higher rating, I would give it...thank you so much!!! =) =)
Comment: I'm sure you're tired of the snow. . . we've only had 4 inches in the last month but the temps are cold, in the teens and 20s, but I'm not complaining My son lives in Maine and he's buried in snow there too so it's been a touch winter for many in the US. Thanks for the PC. . . being on a sailboat with shorts on looks good right now - thanks and stay warm and safe ~~
Comment: Thank you so much for the postcard Rich. I really liked it. Nope, not much snow here in Missouri either. A part of me wants some, the other part just wants to move on to spring. Thanks for the swap & have a great day.
Comment: Thank you for the package. I don't drink tea, but my DD certainly appreciated all the tea bags. I really like the ATC and postcards.
Response: I'm drinking some of that tea right now. I like strong black tea and I brew it in the coffee maker and keep some in the refrigerator. Raining like a son of a gun right now. Too bad because the boys wanted to go to the high school football game.
Comment: Sorry I took so long in rating your card... somehow it got inside one of those junk mail flyerswiththe as/coupons!?! Silly mailman! Thanks for the really adorable card. It kinda takes you back to a simpler time. Thanks so much! Happy Swapping, Jen
Comment: Hi Richard, Sorry for the late rating... I made a note in my rec'd list that they arrived on the 16th & it looked like a really interesting assortment. And then the packet got buried on my desk. Oooops, and I thought I was all caught up. Thanks so much for alll the small denominations... love the 5c Thoreau! Going to peek through the rest of them right now!
Response: No worries, stuff gets buried on my desk all the time.
Comment: OK, Bravo, you outdid yourself on this one, WOW! 7 instead of 4 deserves a heart already but what 7 they are deserves another heart, a Disney one, one with fish, 3 from Texas, one from a very old movie poster, and one of the seahorse legend, thank you VERY much for a truly extra special package! :D
Comment: Thank you so much for the pretty card! I really like the mushroom print and I enjoy mushroom dishes as well (probably not made of the ones in the print since they're after all rather poisonous :D).
Comment: Thank you very much for this great cardâ€¦ I had pineapple for brunch todayâ€¦. & I love antique type labelsâ€¦.and Hawaii is on our BUCKET LISTâ€¦.hope to make it there someday soonâ€¦â€¦ THANKS!!!
Comment: Hello Rich - Thanks so much for the really nice Indiana pc you sent to me. I actually rated you quite some time ago, but when I got online today, all of my original ratings seem to have disappeared!.
Comment: Hi Richard -- Always so good to get an envie from you :-) Great selection of PCs. . .especially the NYC signs and the Greetings from Grand Forks! Thanks again and hope to see you again in a swap - have a great week!
Comment: Whoa, autumn Jackpot! Thank you so much for the beautiful postcards you sent. The top one of the Indian Mission House in MA reminds me of the house in the movie Little Women with Wynona Rider and Susan Sarandon. Love it! Thanks very much! :)
Comment: Thank you Rich for the great pc! I am a big lover of the game of basketball, having played myself. I have only been on the tarmac of an airport in Indiana, yet have it on my travel bucket list.
Comment: THANK YOU so much for our envelope! You sooooo went overboard. Your stamps are awesome! Where do you get the older ones from. Thank you so much for sending them. I am keeping the envelope as is because it's so perfect just the way that it is. Wish I could give you 10 hearts!! Thanks again!!!
Response: I bought some postage stamp albums at a yard sale. I use some stamps from there.
Comment: Nice and cool today here too -- thanks for your postcard - I like knowing what it's like in such far-flung places as Indiana ;-) Loved the itty-bitty 18 cent stamp! (How's the pharmacy biz?? )
Response: There will always be sick people and pill pushers like me to sell to them.
Comment: You did a great job on the swap you hosted I havent tried sending those kind yet, I am still using up ones I mis wrote addresses and have to cover with paper. Maybe someday I will run out of those kinds. Thanks.
Comment: WOW - WOW - WOW!!! I really hit the jackpot with this swap!!! Where do you get all the state capitol PCs??? Thank you so very much for adding to my collection - I thought I'd never get some of these capitols!!! Thanks again for being so very thoughtful ~~
Comment: Rich - I love the Grey Towers PC. . . how very lovely and must be fascinating to actually see! Of course the others are great too but the AZ capitol is certainly welcomed! Thanks again for such a great selection of PCs!!
Comment: This was a great postcard! My hubby is from upper state New York so it was a little reminder of how awesome he is.... weird sounding, but I can't explain how.... it just is. So thank you for that :)
Comment: Great Postcard of Vivian Leigh, Funny thing is the PO when they run it through the machine they made a greenish mark on her face, which only adds to its enjoyment for me. I like them looking distressed. Thank you.
Comment: Wow! Those cards were amazing! I have been slowly growing my vintage postcard collection and little by little I am getting a nice collection. I really loved all of the cards for different reasons. Because of my religion I loved the Brigham Young card.... The Niagra Falls card is good for my US states collection and the Independence Hall cards are so historical. Thanks a ton!!! many hearts to you. So are you a distant relative of Brigham Young? ;)
Response: I don't believe I am related to Brigham Young. My family name used to be spelled Jung and that ancestor came to the States just before WWI. When the war broke out he quickly changed the spelling.
Comment: Love the PC. . . I think a trip to so many of the European countries would be fantastic just to see the architecture and art! Thanks for the great PC with the beautiful scenes. . .my way of traveling : - ) Have a wonderful holiday season ~~
Comment: what a beautiful christmas card. thank you very much I laughed when I saw your address, I used to go shopping in Cottage Grove, Oregon many years ago. My daughters lived in a apartment there when they went to college.
Comment: Thanks for the great PC! I live on an Island, south of Alaska, about even with the A in AK. I have driven through IN a few times on my way to the East Coast and south. I used to live in WI. Hugs from AK. Sherry
Comment: Thank you very much for this great postcard. I can tell you what it's about. It's about the European Football (soccer) Championship 2004 and the people are Fans from Portugal. Thanks again and best wishes from Katrin
Comment: Hello Richard- Thanks so much for the lovely postcard of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Even though I have never been there, I recognize this light house. It must be one of the more popular ones to photograph.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Sun-Maid PC. We don't get that brand here so I enjoyed poring over the different images. My friend did too. We both liked the 1956 one the best, but our favourite sun was the 1923 one! We also liked the '56 grapes the best; the new ones look genetically modified and less tasty! Interesting fact: What you call raisins, we call sultanas (yep, it's Kellogg's Sultana Bran here). What we call raisins are bigger and darker than your raisins/our sultanas, and they have a thicker skin.
Comment: Thanks for the card, Richard, but I'm going to go out on a (snowy) limb and say that that is NOT the REAL Santa. The real guy has reindeer and doesn't have to hoof it (get it?) thru snow drifts!
Response: Maybe the reindeer revolted and left him in the woods?
Comment: Hi Rich, Thank you for the great postcards you sent of the Yeoman of London. I do so love people on postcards. Also, thank you for the extras in the pcfrrs swap you sent. Forgot to thank you for those.
Enjoy the day!
Comment: BIG Thank You for the exceedingly
excellent envie with mellow greeting
card & ancient posties - they had
incredibly lovely handwriting way back
then ... it might just be my oldest postcard: really appreciate it!
:) best wishes for the long weekend
& summer coming up ~
Comment: A great PC ~ ET is one of my favorite movies and I still have the leather ET that I bought when the movie first came out! I'm sure your kids enjoyed going to Orlando : ) Thanks again for the great PC ~~
Comment: Hello Richard- Thank you for the lovely postcard of Virginia. I have visited there a few times, and there is lots of beautiful scenery and many historical places to visit. Best wishes to you, Debbie
Comment: Thanks for the great PCs. . . I do enjoy the scavenger hunt PC swaps! The little fox kit reminds me of my pomeranian when she was little : ) Thanks again for the great PCs and happy swapping ~~
Comment: Richard, Thank you for the Indiana map cards with the interesting info. I am so happy to add the U.N. covers to my collection The block stamps are really nice to collect and look at in my album.
Response: I'm glad you like them. Part of the pleasure I get from swapping is when I really please my partner.
Comment: OMG Richard!!! Where in the world did you get the smileyface spider PC? I've been hoarding that exact image on my computer for years! I LOVE those spiders!!! I really love all the PC's you sent, such a great assortment! Thanks so much!
Comment: oh what an absolutley gorgeous place! The water tower is similar to one near where i live (http://seattlest.com/2006/01/27/we_can_see_for_miles.php)
thanks so much for sharing! happy swapping & shooting! :)
Comment: Sorry this rating is coming so late, I just wanted to let you know that I did not forget to rate you, time has just run away with me. Thanks so much for all the wonderful cards. I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and that you have an even better Thanksgiving as it approaches! (:
Comment: Sorry for the late reply, I have been so busy these days. But so many thanks I should dedicate for you. You've sent me the vintage cards which are absolutely my favorites. And if you are interested in post cards or stamps from China, I may send you some. I really enjoy your kindness for choosing the cards for me! Hugs!
Comment: Thank you for all the beautiful cards! I love the peony with the neat barn in the background. This is my first Indiana map card and the Indiana windmill, barn, capital bldg, and cardinal card is wonderful. Thanks again.
