Send me your address Greg. After you receive my card, you post a picture of it, and solicit 3 members to send you PMs with their addresses. That's it! So I'll need your address.

Howard

Totally Right ! I've been lookin through galleries a lot and there's some really great stuff! And it's better than a magazine cause it's a candid look at the world, just the way it is! Super !

PostCards!
Greg & Cheryl: PM sent! Will be watching for your postcards, be sure & watch for mine!
Ante: Postcards are being mailed today! Thanx for the Super Awesome postcard you sent me, Yes ! Luv it!
PostCard from Ante:



Anyone who wants a postcard from me, dont be shy !

Funny thing...we went to French Polynesia and sent 20 post cards for a total cost of about $100...

I think 2 maybe 3 friends/family members acknowledged receiving the post cards...people are so immune to snail mail...they do not even look though their mail anymore and when they do it is like "oh so what"...typically just junk mail...

Post cards are awesome..I send them on every major trip.....frustrating that many people hardly open/read/acknowledge received cards/letters anymore...

I still am having a hard time finding some. When weather clears up I will go to airport - they always sell postcards (or used to).
A lot get lost in mail according to some mailmen here, or they take 2-3 weeks to get there. Postcards were so popular for a long time...but now email.
Mitchel, Ante, Cheryl & Greg, have patience till I find them

But I belive that members here are social subgroup of ppl that offen open/read/acknowledge received cards. Well, I hope so
My goal was to wake up human/personal contacts to prior level than e-mails/text massages ....

Thanx for the info, Greg ! They can also be found at novelty shops, especially near schools, bus depots, & airports!
It may take me a little longer to get my mail (since it's not direct) but I always get it. And Read it !! Ante's totally right! Getting something from a friend, that's sent by hand, is a Lot better than clicking on an electronic email. My emails are mostly from friends and family and most of them are FW's that weren't even typed by them, anyway.
