Pf postcard club

    That's what happens on chat - someone wants to get a postcard and you decide to start a club.

    Rules are simple: if you want to take part, post here so that we all know you want to join. If you want to exchange postcard with someone, send her/him your snail-mail address by PM. You will get the return address through the same channel. Send a postcard. Wait. When you get the card - post here.

    Please don't post your snail-mail addresses here.

    Note to all interested: I am not treating this post as the final version, very likely these 'rules' will need some refining. However, in 30 minutes I won't be able to edit the post, thus we have to rely on good will of Mentors to do so.

    I'm excited. I already bought some postcards. But I might send some I painted myself if I can find them.

    Pest control, do you read me?

    So far I have been sent addresses by three people. Will have to go for postcard hunting this week. As I wrote on chat - the only place in Warsaw where they can be still bought without problems is the Old Town. So Old Town, here I come!

    I know the hotel near here has a gift shop that sells post cards. I need to get by there. I wonder if the card store has any. MIH, where did you go to get cards?

    Meanwhile I have started a little database containing six names for now for who are on my Xmas-card / birthday list and otherwise. You know who. Stamps aren't that expensive. Keep the address pm's coming

    I live in such a touristy place that every drugstore has them.

    Why don't you paint/draw us some, Evo? I am cheaping out on yours and just writing everything on a stamped avocado (stolen from my neighbors, of course). :smile:

    KC is not exactly a place for tourists. Lost and stranded travelers, yes, but those usually don't stop to buy post cards, they just want out.

    I used to do that.

    :rofl:

    Out of curiosity I have entered all addresses that you have sent me into Google Earth. Wow. It works. You can even tell who has a black car :wink:

    You can watch storks on my sky using your radars, and I can't make sociological observations with Google Earth? That's not fair.

    If you have seen my street you have seen my old white car. It is barely visible, because the road is very bright, but it is there.

    :rofl: The black car's mine, but it's only black on the top sides...silverish on the sides.

    The big field in back is being developed - lots of houses are going to be built there :mad: . But the good news - the area directly over the fence is going to be a park :smile: .

    If you have seen my place - that's an old picture, there are lots of new houses around :frown: And they didn't stop to build them. Luckily area to the north (behind the drain) is untouched so far.

    There is one exception, in spring time, the storm chasers, this gang for instance.

    But I could imagine a better reason for attention to the area.

    Tough call Lisa, there is this particular pink pixel. Probably strawberry.
