Comment: We've been getting autumn teases here. A few days of rain, necessary to turn on the heat, and now we're back in the 80s. This is very rude.

Comment: Cute Cute Cute. I love the doggie and the cats even though wild is beautiful. :) I have not been to the zoo in a while. We have a big place called the "Wilds" where we take a safari and watch wild animals in natural areas made for them. It's fun to do now and then
Response: Really glad you liked the PC's I sent you. Yay! The zoo "Wilds" sounds like a really fun place to go ! I don't think I mention in my note to you. My husband & I used to go the Philadelphia, PA. zoo ( it's like a 2 1/2 hour drive from Canton, PA. ) about every year. They have so many wild animals, that you see it all in one day. So, When we go down there, we stay for 2 1/2 days in a hotel. We haven't been back there since Covid started & not sure when we will go again. As still don't trust to travel. TYSM for the rating and the heart.

Response: Again, You are so very welcome and so happy you liked the PC. 😊 Ruby Tuesday's is still my favorite place to go. I used to go there with my dad (RIP). I still go there in memory of him. Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! Love your covered bridge pc! I did not realize GA had covered bridges - very cool! Sure, we can be pen pals! Do you want to start, as I am heading to CO tomorrow for two weeks and can write when I return. All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: So glad it arrived safely. I always worry, if the PC will make it to it's destination or not. Especially nowadays. Yes, Me too, didn't realize GA. had covered bridges. I looked that PC up and the covered bridge is neater to see than on the PC. Oh, That's so awesome, we can pen pal! Well, Since you will be away for two weeks in Colo. I can wait till you get back. But you will need to remind me though. As my memory isn't what it used to be, since having S.P.M.S. disease. If you like, you can always send me your address via PM. Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: oh you just dont know... I am obsessed with mice I love them. I used to have an English mouse named Suki and she was so much fun. Thank you so much. 6/3
Response: Well, That's awesome, you're obsesses with mice! Oh me too! I love them and I too had Mice at one time. A male & female and they had lots of babies. All so dang cute. I bet your English Mouse was adorable! But You're very welcome for the Mice PC. Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: fun card. I didn't get any cards for mine. Got your card on a good day. Hubby got a bunch of kidney stones out today that has been making him very sick(hospitalized 2 times) since March. So your card is the icing on the cake. :)
Response: Glad you thought the card was fun and so sorry, you didn't any cards on your day.🙁 And, so sorry about your dear hubby. I surely hope things get better for him and soon. My dad ( RIP) had them too and it was horrible for him & horrible to see in pain. But I'm glad the card was the icing on the cake. I wish your hubby a fast recovery. Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Oh, hello again! :) You should absolutely visit Kentucky if you can! I don't know if you drink but the small town bourbon distilleries are very fun and frankly, educational. I've spent a little bit of time in Louisville and the Mammoth Caves Nat'l Park and had a lot of fun. Talk to you soon! <3
Response: Yeah, I'll never get to visit Kentucky. It takes money to go. Esp. gas & the gas prices here are unbelievable. It's $4.85 a gallon for regular here in Canton, PA. And, My hubby & I are on SSD & me in a wheelchair. So, We stay put anymore. And, Nope I don't drink. Mainly because I am on so many different medications. Almost enough to start a drug store, ha! I haven't had an alcohol drink since 2008. Miss it, yes I do. My hubby drinks. But only beer and not much. Anyway, Thanks very much, for the rating and heart.
Comment: Got your mail! Thanks so much! Fun to read how big your net of collections is. :) And thank you for the extras! I'll be writing back to you soon, hopefully this week! <3
Response: Wow, You got that fast! That doesn't normally happen. But glad you liked my collection. Take yo time answering me back. It's summer now. Well, Technically not yet. But we're having summer weather & having a heat wave. Which 97 degrees right now. Thanks very much for the rating & heart.
Comment: I love this cute little mouse! Reminds me of my hamster :) Thank you!
Response: I am so happy, that you liked it. I love Mice! I used to have a couple Mice & they were Male & female and they had a lot of babies! So tiny & so cute they were! My male mouse was named Herman and the female was named Betty Boop, lol ! Anyway, you're so welcome and thanks very much for the rating & heart.
Comment: I am currently reading a book with fairies. This was perfect!! Loved your answers. Thank you
Response: Oh wow, That's awesome, I sent the right PC to someone else who loves Fairies! Yay! I too am reading a book with Fairies! I'm always looking for Fairy stories and also Mermaid stories. I buy all my books from Thriftbook.com. Anyway, I just started reading "A sprinkle of Fairy dust" with 4 stories in one book by Elizabeth Bevarly, Elaine Crawford, Maylyle Rogers, and Maggie Benson Shayne. Anyway, you're welcome & happy you liked the PC & my answers. Have a great night!
Comment: Hi Debbie! Love the cow pc and it was great to have a visit from you - it has been a few weeks, so always happy to catch up! Wayne's garden is looking great - well most of it, we have had a ton of rain and some of the containers seems a tad waterlogged - I worry about root rot but I also do not have a green thumb, so... Having said that, the sunflowers are popping up - yipppeee! Wayne helped me plant four different kinds - I am so excited to see what we will get - I love sunflower photos! That is awesome that you have had some of your flower bulbs for 10 years already - what kind of flowers are they? I so love fresh flowers! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: So glad you liked the Cow PC! I love cows! Esp. the calves. Not sure I mentioned it before, that I was a Farmer's daughter. Happy to hear, your hubby's garden is looking great! And, the sunflowers are popping up. I had sunflowers last year & got all the seeds from them. But I didn't plant any this year. Our veggie garden is doing terrific! I didn't plant too big of a vegie garden this year. Because it's just too much on me anymore. But you asked what flowers I planted. The bulbs I planted are Hyacinths, Calla Lilies, and Night Rider Lilies. They have germinated already & soon will be in bloom by the 2nd week of June. I can't wait! Oh, I do too love fresh flowers! Smelling them is best! Hugs to you as well and happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for this super cute postcard, Debbie! Two swaps from you at the same time! Haha. I think I have to agree that the grooming would be pretty intense. I've never owned a dog who needed grooming, really. My Greta is a 9 y/o golden retriever. Wishing you and your dogs the best!
Response: So very welcome! Yeah, That seldom happens, partner getting swaps from me twice in one day. So, It surprises me when it does happen. I bet your Greta is so pretty! I love Golden Retrievers & love their silky coats. My bother had one once.& ha was a beaut. His name was Max. Thanks very much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Thanks Debbie! Cute horse notecard, though I wish there'd been a "hey/hay" pun inside. ;) I'm sure I can put these stickers to use somehow--they look really nice. I've only been crocheting for probably a month now! I'm very much a newbie. You would probably wince at my clumsy grip etc after so many years' experience! ;)
Response: So very welcome & sorry no horse or pun. I really didn't think about it at the time. But then, I really don't do quotes. Sorry. Thanks very much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie. Thanks for the warm welcome. I adore the little cub. We have lots of bears in CA too. But I never see them ~one day !
Response: You're so welcome! Happy you liked the bear cub postcard. They're so darn cute! We've seen more than our share of bears here in Canton, PA. Two close encounters at that too. Those are some stories I'll tell you. Thanks very much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Not one, but 3 different lasagna recipes! Thank you, Debbie. I can't wait to try the Ravioli Lasagna in particular. This was my second swap, but first item I have received.
Response: Oh, When I send recipes, you get more than just one from me. As I love to send my family recipes. Some are pretty old too, like over 100 years. But the 3 lasagna recipes are tried & true and so dang yummy! I hope you enjoy them.😊 And, Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: I hope I am strong too. I had brain surgery when I was 9. I think that made me strong, I hope. I have since been through a lot of medical procedures. I am also having to be strong every time I take my medications because I take 30+ pills twice a day.
Response: Sorry you had to go through brain surgery, at such a young age. I too had surgery at a very young age of 2 months old. My stomach was turned inside out & I had a huge hole in my heart. And, Like you, I as well take over 30 pills a day. Maybe we should start a pharmacy, hee! 😐 So, anyway, We are both strong. Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the cute border collie pc. I'm so sorry that you lost yours. They do become a very big part of our lives. Hugs!
Response: Welcome & happy you liked the doggy PC! Oh, Yes, Your pets do become part of your family & how. 😊 Our 14 yr. old Pomeranian Isis will be 15 in August. But lately she hasn't been doing so good. As she had a stroke a month ago & couldn't get her to walk or eat or drink. Had to force her. I'm just not ready to let her go yet. She's my baby! Well, Thanks so much for the rating & heart. Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you Deb! Loved reading about how you met your husband. And love the grilled cheese postcard. Hubby and I both like grilled cheese 'samiches' lol Comfort food. Yummy! It's always fun to receive a swap from you. Hope you are doing well. Hugs, Bonnie
Response: So welcome and happy you like the grilled cheese sandwich PC. My hubby & I love grilled cheese sandwiches too. But without the tomato soup, yuck! Some people have Tomato soup w/ them. But we're not one of them. But yes, It is comfort food & so yummy ! Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Thanks for the postcards and stickers. I love the tree one. My 16-year-old had her very last dance recital today after 14 years of dancing. She has decided this is her last year. My 20-year-old just started summer classes for college.
Response: You're so welcome Melissa and happy you like the Tree PC. Good luck to your daughters. And, Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Thank you for sharing not one but two recipes with me! The corn & nut crumble snack sounds delicious..and the tea is one I will enjoy too :)
Response: Very welcome! And, the Corn & Nut crumble is so yummy & one of our favorites here. I hope you enjoy it, alone with the other recipe, that's our favorite as well. Thanks very much for rating & heart.
Comment: I agree, the Himalayan cats are very pretty! With all that fluffy fur they would be good to snuggle up with in the winter! Be well! xo
Response: Wow, My Cat PC sure took it's time getting to you. 🙁 This postal system is so screwed up. But happy you liked the Himalayan kitty cat. Oh yes, They are quite fully & the fluffy cats don't shed as much as the short haired ones. Thanks very much for rating & heart.
Comment: Oh my, your postalette was so pretty ♡ I really enjoyed the personal note you wrote to me also ♡ Thank you for sending such a pretty and thoughtful swap ♡
Response: Oh wow, You got my postalette fast ! That doesn't normally happen for me. Esp. since PA. is so dang slow for incoming & out going mail. Anyway, you're so welcome & I'm so pleased you liked my postalette!😉 Thanks so much for the rating & heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcards and also the extra☺️ I really enjoyed all of them ! Thank you for taking your time to choose postcards for me😊 Your handwriting is very pretty ! I am happy to be partners with you😊
Response: Hello Ayako! You are so welcome for what I sent and that the postcards please you. Yay! Yes, I try I do try to match postcards for my partners. That is, If I have them. But I found all for you.😀 Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Elvis pc! So funny, I sent my partner an Elvis pc too. I've never liked him and was happy to get rid of it only to get one in return! HAHA!!!! Thanks s much for the nice note and for joining my swap :)
Response: OMG, Now that's too funny, you getting Elvis from me, when you sent one off to your partner. I did it too, to rid of Elvis. I never liked him either. My mom loves him & so does my hubby. I told him, never to play Elvis when I'm in the house, ha! So he goes outside with head phones on, lol ! But you're welcome my note though.😊
Comment: Hi friend! Thank you for the Southern Aardwolf pc and the information about it. I have never heard of a Southern Aardwolf before. When you first said that it ate insects, I pictured bugs like mosquitos, then realized the bugs are bigger in Africa. Still pretty amazing that they don't eat meat. Thanks for making my day!
Response: Hey there dear friend! You're more than welcome for Aardwolf PC. These are definitely interesting animals & nothing like their relatives the Hyena. But I think the Aardwolf is cute. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! Yes, spoonies are very real. One of my dear friends has a spoon tattoo bc she has lupus and sometimes runs out of her "spoons." Another friend said the other day, "I'll respond later, I don't have any spoons left." My spoons have been a little low lately, but I'm trying to get things done in little bits. Sending hugs (and spoons)! :):):)
Response: Ok, I've never heard that expression Spoonies. But I now know. It's just there are so many different things out there & I still don't know all of them. I'm so sorry about your friend with Lupus. I had a friend with Lupus. But she is gone now, RIP. Her was Samantha and I miss her every day & she's been gone for 11 yrs. now. She was a wonderful friend. Anyway, Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie, thank you for joining my swap. I watched “Vikings Valhalla” as well! Never give up on your dreams. If you want to go to the Virgin Islands, make it happen! Cheers
Response: Hi Kaci ! You're very welcome! Oh, This dream to Virgin Islands is but a dream. I'm on SSD and could never afford to go there. Plus the fact I'm wheelchair bound. But thanks the little boost though. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Great postcards! I've actually been to the Badlands and the Grand Canyon! And I have a lot of family in NJ so I've spent plenty of time on the interstate 😄
I guess now I have to get to Hyde Park. I'm very glad to hear that you and your family are doing well. I'm finally feeling better after dealing with bronchitis for 2 months. My first experience with it and I hope it's my last!
Thanks very much for the great swap❣
Comment: Thank you so much for the cat postcards! Yes, I completely forgot to put Cats in the comments section, sorry about that! I noticed that you forgot to tell me about your pet or previous pet. Do you have any, I'd love to hear about them if you want to message me! :D
Response: Oops, I guess I goofed too, lol ! But you're so welcome for the cat PC's. As for my precious pets. I have 2 dogs and a cat. My dogs are Pomeranian female Isis & she will 15 in Aug. the 17th. My other dog is a male Chihuahua Jasper 2 1'2. And, my cat is female & her name is Bella & is 10. She can be a bad kitty & loves to sharpen her nails on our wood work. But I still love her and love my dogs as well! Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Crazy to hear you got a snowstorm in April! We had a random snowday in the spring too. It's now super muggy and hot! Ugh, summer has hit us like a truck! Until next time <3
Response: Yeah, We usually get one last snowstorm in April. But Glad it doesn't stay. Now we are getting hot weather and jumped into summer. Yay! We even got our veggie garden done, by the end of April. Thanks so much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the PC. Maybe you can wrap your mom up while she sleeps and let her wake up again in FL? Wouldn't it be nice if life were that easy? Have a wonderful spring.
Response: You're so welcome! Yeah, How I do wish, I could wrap my mother up & go back to FL. But she's too sickly to move her. As it would mean a 3 day trip from Burlington, PA, where she lives. But life isn't really that easy. Take care & have a great day. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: oh I love those Capybara's... there will be one at the Madison Zoo when we get there this summer too. thank you 5/11
Response: Happy to hear, you love Capybaras too! They are so cute! I saw them once in the Philadelphia, PA zoo. It's a huge zoo & can't cover it one day. Well, I hope you will have fun at the Madison zoo. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Deb.. love the vintage PA postcard! I love the bright yellow and the clear pictures. Weren't they (the pcs) made well back when? It says ...the rolling hills are unsurpassed in beauty. I don't remember hills in PA, but I was in Hershey. And it was a VERY long time ago (30+ years). I can never seem to find pcs at the flea market or in an antique store. I need to start shopping with you !! Lol. So good to hear from you!! Extra ❤s 💛💙💗💜🧡💚
Response: Wow, I didn't think I'd get that good of response from my PA. map card! But that's fantastic! So glad at how much you liked it. When they mention Rolling Hills, they the mountains. That's how they said things back then. Where we live, which is the mountains, we are surrounded by them. It's beautiful up here & we love it! So, You were to Hershey yrs. ago? I love the Hershey park. But it's been 8 yrs. since been there. If it wasn't for the Covid etc. We would go. As we talked about it a couple yrs. ago. Anyway, We are like 2 hrs. or so from Hershey. Thanks so much for joining my swap and for the heart.
Comment: Hi Deb! Thanks for the pretty Tanager card and your list of favourite birds. Sounds like you get the same kinds of birds as we do here in Ontario. I love all of those birds you mentioned, especially since they are winter birds, too, and stay around all year long. Cathy
Response: So welcome & glad you enjoyed the Tanager bird PC. Oh, I too love all the birds! I've got all my bird feeders filled and they've been busy out there eating away.😊 Thanks so much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Alabama pc. I love the map pc swaps. It reminds me of a 'project' that we had to do in Jr. High. Our teacher was the High School basketball coach, so during basketball season each person in the class had to write to each State Captiol and ask for maps and information about the state. Then we each had to make a notebook with information on the whole US. It was just busy work for us while the teacher coached the team. I'm not sure why we didn't divide the states up with the class so we each only had to write to a couple of states and ask for enough information for the entire class, but we never thought of it. Or we were afraid to. The teacher was really mean. But I loved the whole collection process.
Response: More than welcome & I too love the Map card swaps! So much fun! Esp. the surprise of getting one you may not have. Loved your story about the class room! Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! How wonderful to have you as my partner and I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! I got to chat with my kiddos on the phone, then the hubby, Miss Greta Mae & I went for a late lunch at a place called The Loading Dock - it is right on the Mississippi River and it was so much fun watching people, little kids, the river boats while enjoying beautiful weather! Our weather got warm enough today and will be all week that we have the AC on - from a wet, chilly spring to summer in a blink of an eye! Already had a tick on me today - yucky!! Love your HI map pc - it is also on my bucket list and I also think, not likely to make it but sometimes things work out, so... Maybe we will both make it at some point and purchase lots of pcs! LOL! All the best my friend! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm so happy to hear, you had a wonderful Mother's Day, with friends & family. I did as well with all my 5 children & the grands. Thanks so much for the heart. Have a wonderful day dear friend!
Comment: Thanks for the note and postcards. I hope you get that blood pressure and those white blood cells up! We had a good Easter. Our meal was very similar to yours. My mom did ham and turkey and dressing. All the daughters brought sides. I made crockpot mac-n-cheese... it was SO good.
Response: You're so welcome ! I'm alright for the moment. Thanks for your concern. Glad you had a good Easter. Yay! Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you!! I LOVE this linen PC!! Lippiatts Motel looks like one of the many Motels that were right off the RT 66 corridor!! I always think it's so sad when they tear down the old buildings... they have so much history and so many stories hidden behind their walls! xx Gabi
Response: You're so welcome! Glad you liked it. I agree, it's sad when they tear down these type of buildings. Because of the history behind them. We had our Canton, PA motel tore down. It was called the Pam Lee motel. Due to this rural area of ours and it becoming a ghost town here, is why it was tore down. There will be a house built there now. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the pc and for joining the swap! Today is Jedi's 11th birthday! He got a special birthday cookie which he loved! [Jedi's birthday post](https://www.instagram.com/p/CdQrqbRrs6h/) Hopefully this works and you can see the pictures of Jedi. I think he's adorable! If not, my Instagram is @jedithebookpup and there are plenty of pictures of him there if you want to look! Congrats on the soon-to-be new puppy!
Response: You're so very welcome! Glad to hear, you're fur baby had a wonderful 11th birthday. Esp. his birthday cookie. 😀 So sorry, I wouldn't be able to look at Jedi's birthday post on instagram. Because I lost my account with yahoo back in June 2021 and can't get it back with my new account with gmail. I would have loved to have seen his picture though. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the swap and the fun PC.
It was nice to hear from you. It had been a while. We are busying ourselves cleaning out and packing to move later this summer or fall. It is amazing how much stuff one can accumulate in fourth five years. It isn't all going to fit in the condo.
Response: Hi Neal ! Yup, It sure has been a bit, since we last swapped. You're very welcome for the swap. I imagine you're still quite busy packing yet & readying for the move. I don't envy you, ha! As we've been there done many times. But not in the last 11 years however & hope it will never happen again. We bought a house 11 yrs. ago atop the mountain of Lake Hill Road here in Canton, PA. and plan to spend the rest of our days here. But I sure know about the accumulation, from years of living in one place for years. Thank goodness the house we have now, could hold it all, lol ! Have fun and enjoy your new Condo! 😊
Comment: Thank you for the duck pc and your message. I'm glad the weather is better in your area. We're getting rain every day with some sun breaks, so we try to get things done between the rain drops. It will get better though! Take care friend!
Response: Thanks so much dear friend for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the doll she reminds me of the characters on a cartoon my granddaughters watched when they were little ...something about Monster High I think. 5/6
Response: Happy you liked the Doll PC and yes, It does you remind too, of the kids show Monster high. My grand kids watched that too. Of course I ended watching it with them, ha! Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Hello, my favorite swap partner, thanks for the Mickey and Minnie in Nassau tourist card. That place is on my (very long) bucket list. Rich
Response: Well, That's great to hear, I'm one of your favorite swap partners, hee! You're so welcome for the Mickey & Minnie PC. That's been a dream of mine for a very long time. But that's all it is, a dream. I'll never have the money to get there, in other words. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Yup, most definitely an ugly postcard! Sounds like we have similar weather. It's all over the place too and can't decide if it wants to be warm or cold. It's been consistently in the upper 40's and low 50's - not much of a Spring but that's usual here in RI! :/
Response: I'm glad to know, you thought so too, it's an Ugly PC! Yeah, our is still pretty much the same as yet. Except now it's been raining for the last 2 days & today. Supposed to stop by tonight. Guess will see. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the Winnie the Pooh postcard! I'm not sure if I got one before. The kid in red in the picture is in fact a boy and his name is Christohper Robin. ^^ I can't get over how cute the postcard is! And yes, we've been partnered up a few times, but I can't say if it was before or after you wrote the pc. And I think the swaps were mostly type 1.
Response: You're most welcome! Yeah, I realized it was Christopher Robin after the fact, ha! It's a lot of years since I've seen Winnie-the-Pooh. I used to watch it with my kids, when they were little and that was so many years ago. As my oldest of 5 turns 40 this year June. OMG, Now that makes me feel really really old, ugh ! I do remember now, we've been partnered up a few times. Esp. type 1 swaps. My memory isn't what used to be though. Since because of my disease S.P.M.S. Comes with the territory. Ah, well, Life goes on. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for your answers. I try to get out of dish duty by saying I'm allergic, lol. Yes, I believe we have been swap partners a few times over the years. 🙂
Response: You're so welcome! Finally someone like me, with dishes duty ! Even though we have a dish washer machine, I still hate doing it. Esp. the silverware part, ugh! Good answer, saying you're allergic to the dishes, lol ! I knew it, we have swapped before. Just couldn't recall though. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Ooo, I wish I could give you more than 1 heart! I love the postcards you sent! So many of my favorites all in one envie. Thank you! And you used some nifty stamps that I can add to my collection!
Response: You're more than welcome! I'm so happy my envelope of PC's were to your liking! Yay! Happy you liked the stamps too & were added to your collection. My dad rest in peace, used to be a huge stamp collector. He had so many old ones that were priceless. Since my mother didn't collect stamps, she sold them. So sad too. She could have passed them to someone in the family. Ah well, what's done is done. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely letter on the fun stationary. Rook was a nickname I decided to change to my legal name. Thanks for the swap!! Cheers
Response: You're so very welcome! Happy you liked my stationery. 😊 Well, That is so neat, you changed your real name Evan to Rook. I like it! Glad you liked the other goodie as well. Take care and have a wonderful day Rook! Thanks btw the heart.😊
Comment: Thank you!! Sorry for the delayed rating--just got back from two weeks of travel.
Response: It's quite alright. We all need a break every now & then. I hope your trip was awesome Curtis! We will be taking a short vacation in July, to see my oldest daughter & the grand kids. Can't wait! Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Alfred Stieglitz horse postcard. I had to look it up, and you probably don't want to know what part of the horse it is. I really did LOL! It does make you wonder why someone would take a photograph like that. :) Thank you for the 'A' list too and making me laugh! :)
Response: Welcome. Well, No, I really don't think I'd like to know, what part of that horse was. But I have a good idea though & it makes me cringe. But who knows why people do anything with postcards. I've seen a few not so nice PC's & passed them on, ha! Not my cup of tea. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you very much for the pretty cards and for your note. I had Lady Grey tea this morning and left for Vintage Market Days in Rutland, VT. It was a windy and cold day. I was pleased to find some nice vintage post cards..
Response: You're very welcome and thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for your nice note on the floral postalette! And if you’re still curious, my 11 year old won’t be 12 until the end of November…but I do need to update the middle son’s age, he is 10 now. They’re all very close in age- 3 years in a row in school, haha. Congrats on the recent great-grandbaby!
Response: You're very welcome! And, thanks for telling me your oldest age & b-day. Cool! My 3 oldest were like too, 3 years in a row in school. Then dropped off to 4th child 3 yrs. later and my last a lot longer. He graduated in 2012. Thanks so much for the heart.
Comment: Haha, definitely a WTF card! Maybe it's better to see in person at the museum. And no, I didn't get a response yet :\ I know mail is still super slow so maybe we give it another week? Hope you are well <3
Response: I knew you would think so too, wtf with the PC I sent & yes is better off just staying in the museum, ha! I knew it, you didn't get my letter. Pennsylvania sucks with mail! Alrighty then, I'll wait some more days. But I know dang well it's lost out there somewhere. Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: thank you for the 'birthday card' So you want to know about OCTOBEREVE930 No I was not born in October but you are on the right track. MY BIRTHDAY IS September 30... which is the day before October...hence OCTOBEREVE... and the 930 is my birthday in number form. (4/27)
Response: You're so welcome! Thanks for explaining your ID name. How cool is that?! Thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! Here we go for another week of visits! LOL! Love the vintage pc and how fun that you can get them on Etsy in lots. I haven't done much on Etsy but may have to give it a try! Thank you for the fun share and always great to get a visit! Hope your week is going well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Very welcome and thanks very much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you for the great list of songs. I got to see Metallica in concert twice back in November when they played in Daytona at Welcome To Rockville. Have a great day and thank you for joining my swap!
Response: You're so welcome! I love Metallica! Lucky you to have seen them. But they never come to Tags Summer Stage in Big Flats, NY. That's where my hubby & I go every summer. Except for the last 2, due to the Covid. We seen so many concerts, with 3 different hair bands. Esp. Motley Crue, Autograph, Led Zep, to just name a few. On June 11th, We are going to see Queensryche, Quiet Riot, and Kix. So can't wait! Thanks very much for the heart. Have a great day!
Comment: Hi Debbie! Too funny that I host a swap and you get me as a partner! We must be on the same SB algorithm or something! Your pc is so pretty and thank you for the lovely share about your Easter - the meal sounds delicious! Do you like to cook? What is a Lane cake? We went very non-traditional, the hubby smoked pork steaks and baked beans since it was just the two of us - it was so yummy though and makes me dream of summer, with warmed sunny days! Thank you for joining the swap and I hope you will do so in the future as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Yup, It is too funny, you host swap & I end up sending to you. But love it & don't mind iota. Our Easter turned out wonderful ! As did the yummy food. Do I like to cook? Yes, I do very much so. I also like baking too. But I don't do a whole lot of it though. What is Lane cake? It's a 3 tier cake and has a peach filling between the layers. So yummy! You can find the recipe online. But the recipe I have, is one that was passed down from my great grandmother. Anyway, Your dinner for you & your hubby sounded yummy! I love smoked pork steaks! Oh me too, look forward to summer! It's taking it's time getting here though, ha! Thanks very much for the heart. And, hugs to you as well.
Comment: Hi again Debbie! SB is having a lovefest with having you sent to me - if this keeps up, I am going to send you some postage just for the swaps to me! LOL! Thank you for the lovely pc of the Macaw - I had no clue they could fly so fast - WOW! Always great to get a visit! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: That's cute "lovefest", hee! But You also send to me too sometimes and I like it when you do! You're so welcome for the Macaw bird PC. I love those birds! So cute! Thanks very much for the heart & hugs back at you!
Comment: Hi Debbie! What a COOL dream! Kind of scary, but cool also. I'd watch a movie about this. It's funny, my sister and I were just talking about reoccurring dreams that we have. We both have one about being on a trip and being late and trying to pack our suitcase. We need a T-Rex in there adding to the chaos! THANKS for a cool swap! :):):)
Response: So glad you thought my dream was cool ! I'll never understand dreams. Especially my reoccurring dream, about the future, the dinosaur, and the black hole in the wall. Crazy stuff! Well, One thing is for sure, scientist are wanting to bring back dinosaurs and already did try to bring back Triceratops. But she died. But still doesn't explain my dream as a kid of 10 yrs. old. Ah well! You * your sisters dream is pretty far out. Some say, it may be due to stress. Anyway, Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks for the great cards! Sending love to sweet Isis!
Response: You're more than welcome Sarah and thanks so much for the love to my Isis. She needs it right now. I had to take her back to Vet's again. She had another mini stroke and this one made her go blind. 😢 The Vet said to make as comfortable as we can. As it's just a matter of time. I will be so lost without her. As we have had her since her deceased mama gave birth to her. Time to stop talking about it, before I bawl my eyes out again. Take good care Sarah and have a good evening. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Wow! I’ve never seen such a thing! Looks cool, but not sure I’d do it to my cat, either. Thank you!
Response: So very welcome for the cat PC & glad you think it was cool. I feel sorry for those, getting finger painted. I imagine the poor kitty didn't like it being done to them. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hi again! I have some pcs that have the finger painted cats on them as well - I think they are pretty awesome and I have read the cats are not harmed by doing this but I wonder when I use them what other people think. My fur baby (Miss Greta Mae, a black lab) probably would not go for me doing anything like this to her, I can understand why your Bella cat might not either! When we went to the Purina Pet Parade in Feb. there were tons of dogs tied different colors and it looked cool but I just don't think I could do it, so... Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Well hello to you again! Fancy meeting you here twice. Esp. getting two swaps from me in one day. Doesn't happen too often. But happy to see you did get them both. Now that's something cool, you have finger painted cats as well. I love the pretty colors of the cats. But as said before, I wouldn't do it to my kitty cat, finger paint her. I was never very good at finger painting as a kid. So, I could never picture myself trying to do that to an animal, ha! But I'd like to know, how they got such straight lines etc. on the cats. I'd be all the over the place, ha ha! Wow, I bet that was a good time, at the Purina Pet Parade! I would have loved to have seen that! They never have things like that here in Canton, PA or any where else around here. They do have holiday parades here. Like Halloween, Christmas, & Memorial Day. In the summer, around August, they have a block dance here. Is always Country music. But we never go. Mainly because I can't dance anymore, due to being wheelchair bound. Anyhow, Thanks very much for the 5 & heart. BTW, I do Pen Pal.
Comment: Hi Debbie! Great minds are thinking alike in so many swaps these days! LOL! Always enjoy when we are partners! Hope you had a wonderful Easter! I love the lighthouse pc - the last one I went into was in FL and I thought by the time I walked to the top, that I might die due to lack of oxygen! LOL! The view was worth it, so all was good! LOL! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Yes, I too enjoy it very much, when are partnered up. I very much enjoy your notes, I get in the swaps. I esp. love your Postalette swaps and always hope to be partnered with you, hee hee! Yes, we here had such a wonderful Easter. I fixed a ham dinner, with homemade Mac N' Cheese, ham gravy with mashed potatoes, Green bean casserole and for dessert Lane cake ( so dang yummy! ).and also Strawberry cheese cake esp. for my 27 yr. old son ( youngest of my 5 ). I make it from scratch and he can't get enough of it and ends up taking home what's left, lol ! I hope you as well had a Happy Easter with your family. So glad you love the Lighthouse PC. Yay! And, Glad you got to see a Lighthouse. I did as well & went through what you did, the stairs, ugh ! Well worth it as you said.😊 Well, You take good care and have a wonderful night. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the cute kitten pc. We too, had a cat similar to the one on the card. We called her our Safeway cat because my husband went to pick up milk and came home with a kitten from some people that were giving them away outside of the store. She was a sweet kitty. :)
Response: Really happy you liked the kitties PC and you're very welcome for it. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks so much for the great card. How pretty! I live about 45 minutes from Bangor and do most of my shopping there since I live in such a rural area. Fur babies are well, thank you so much!
Response: You're very welcome! Happy you liked it so much! That's pretty cool, you live just 45 minutes from Bangor! I miss going up there & not even sure if we'll ever get up there again any time soon. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks for resending! The recipes look yummy. Looking forward to trying them.
Response: You're so welcome & I'm so glad the resend made it to you alright. Yay! Happy cooking! I've already tried out my partners recipes and were they ever so good! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Aloha Tower pc. We stayed on Waikiki and went on lots of tours but never saw the tower. Guess we have to go back! :)
Response: You're most welcome! Lucky you, getting to go to Hawaii ! I envy you. I've always wanted to go. My mom & Step-dad ( passed in 2005) went to Maui & Oahu. I couldn't go at that. Because I had to work and had no vacation time. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: thank you for the chatty card and sweet stickers! Sending you *hugs* from Canada. We're waiting for spring to arrive here too! Brr!!! I hope all is ok where you are with the flooding you had recently --- scary stuff! There was major flooding here in Nov and it was pretty devastating! take care!! Have a blessed Easter.
Response: You're more than welcome! Happy you liked my note & the stickers. Hugs back at you from Pennsylvania! We are finally past the flooding season. Thank goodness! Four times was enough. But once October gets here, we will get another flooding stage. I'm glad that month is a way's away! Yes, Flooding's can be pretty devastating. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks! I also chose Can't Stop The Feeling but for the song from a movie song! Thanks for sharing!
Response: You are so welcome! Cool, you choose that song too. I love the movie "Trolls" ! It o cute! My younger grand kids got me sucked into it and now I love it, ha! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie, thank you for your purple fairy postcard! So glad to read you made it through your covid infection... No lasting discomfort I hope? So far the hubs and I have been able to avoid the virus -- lucky us! Take care <3
Response: You're so very welcome ! Yes, I'm ok now from the Covid and yes, there were lasting discomforts. But didn't go on too long I'm glad of. My Aunt Ginny got it next 2 weeks ago, Hers wasn't as bad thank goodness. I'm so glad to hear, you & your hubby lucked out on it. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! How fun that we are partners again! I love your Earth pc - it is just beautiful! Yes, we are not very good to Mother Earth at times and I get so sad about that! We live in a rural area and I will never understand why people have to toss their trash in fields or the side of the road - WTH?? You cannot wait until you are home and put it in a trash can?? People are so annoying at times! Thank you again for the beautiful share! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Really happy, you loved the Earth PC! It was hard for me to give up. But I thought, why not share it.😀 We too live in a rural area like you. Only we atop a mountain. But we still find trash all over the place. Just down over the mountain toward our tiny town, over an embankment, someone has decided to use it as as dumping ground. When I had use my legs ( wheelchair bound now ), I went hiking through the creek area & found the dumping area. There are glass bottles, garbage of cans & food, and dirty diapers. So disgusting! I don't think our Borough township is even aware of it. I won't say anything. Because of getting accused of it. So, I let it go. This is just a cheap ploy, to rid of their garbage. Makes me so angry though. Thanks so much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks for the great match-up! My kitten gets neutered this month. Time flies. My oldest is going to be 14 next month.
Response: So welcome! Good luck, getting your kitty neutered. My 11 yr. old cat Bella was neutered at at age 6 months old. I have 2 dogs & my Pomeranian female age 14, who will 15 in August is & has been neutered since 6 mos. old too. My 2 yr. old Chihuahua Jasper isn't fixed. Because he is a stud for females. He has studded 3 times so far. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Magic Eye PC. I think they are so cool. Also thanks for the website for where you get PCs at. I have been looking for different sites to buy them. The site looks "dangerous" as I am a booklover also, and a place to get cheaper books is always a win!!
Response: You're so welcome! Oh yes, the Magic eye PC's are really cool ! I love them! As for thriftbooks.com. Nope, It's not dangerous in anyway. I've been ordering from that site since 2004. Every time you order a book from them, you get points. After an amount of points are added up, you get a free book. There are so many to choose from too. Thanks so much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the pretty card and the Amish postcards. :) I really enjoyed your note. It must be so interesting to live so close to the Amish!
Response: You are more than welcome for the Amish PC's and yes, it's interesting to live so close to Amish families. They're just the sweetest people ever. Plus these Amish are more modern than others & have electric, vehicles, and they even order out fast food. Esp. Pizza, ha!
Comment: Hey there! So good to hear from you! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the seal pc! They really are adorable, and can really be playful and full of antics 🦭
I'm so sorry to hear you had the dreaded virus. Praise the Lord it's over now. Hope we get to swap again soon - and by soon, I mean before the harvest moon! LOL 😉
Response: Hey there back! I was a joy to be able to send a swap to you again! I'm so glad you enjoyed the Seal PC! You know, they really are are fun loving mammals! I got a chance twice to see them in real life too. They are so easy to train &so talented. Oh yes, I am so glad I got over the Covid. It was horrible though & never want to get that again! Oh, Most definitely hope to swap with you again! I hope soon too. You take good care & stay well. Thanks so much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: You were so wonderful and kind in picking me those cat postcards! I loved them all! Thank you so much! And I loved the cute sheep sticker on the back too. Much love to your and your furbabies too!
Response: Oh, You're more than welcome my dear, for the cat PC's. I always try to send from others profile likes. More generally I will have what others like. But so happy you love them! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! How fun to be partners again - much mean we have great taste in swaps! LOL! I love your Woman pc! Bummer that you are allergic to nuts as those candies do sound wonderful! Not sure if I have had the candy but I have had praline ice cream and loved it! See ya at our next mailbox visit! LOL! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Well hello Vicky! So glad to know, you got you got my PC and that you liked it. Yay! Yeah, I've noticed you & I have similar tastes & nothing wrong with that.😁 The Praline Ice cream sounds so good. I've never had it, due to nuts in it. But I do love Ice cream! But only in the Spring summer months. Only time I'll eat it. As I can't stand to eat it in the cooler weather. I don't know why honestly. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart. Hugs & happy swapping back at ya!
Comment: Thank you so much for the Cat Art PC! I will have to look up on YouTube about the painter cats. I have two calicos also. My cats would be the ones after that bird! LOL! Have a wonderful day!
Response: Welcome! Thank you very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: thank you for the book postcard, does your collection look like that ? 3/24
Response: You're so welcome! Does my book collection, look like the PC I sent you? Not quite, ha! I have one very tall book case that is filled. But nothing like that PC, hee! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the cute precious moments postalette and also for sharing about your sweet pups! 💓
Response: You're very welcome! Esp. my share on my sweet doggies. We have new addition coming soon, the end April, we will have another Chihuahua ( female pup). Can't wait to get her. Glad you liked the Precious Moments Postalette. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Wow that pup is expensive, but cute! Your babies sound so wonderful. I had to find a new home for my puppy as she would grow up to be too large for where I live. :( And there is a weight limit here of 25 pounds and she will grow to at least 50. It broke my heart to have to give her up, but I had no choice. Well, have a wonderful day and happy swapping...
Response: Hi Brenda! So happy you got my pup PC! And, Yes, That sure was cute! I'm so sorry, you had to give up your pup. 🙁 As she would have too big for your place. That's sad. You can always look for a smaller puppy. Adopt one through the SPCA. Will have a 3rd addition to our family the end of April. We will have a female Chihuahua for our male Chihuahua Jasper. Can't wait! Thank so much for the 5 & heart. Take good care & have a great day!
Comment: Hi Debbie! I love your vintage pc - it had me giggling, which I could use on a cloudy, rainy day! That is awesome that is awesome that you found someone on Etsy to get your vintage pcs from - I will be going to a pc show in a few weeks and hoping my vendor that used to have pcs for a nickel will be back! Last time they were not but I thought maybe it was because of COVID - we will see! Thanks again for the giggles and share! I do enjoy when we are partners as well! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm so glad you got a good giggle out the PC I sent. Yay! I wish you so much luck, at the PC show & hope that vendor is there this time. I wish they had PC shows here. Every year in July, Except for the last 2 years, they have a Book fair. The firemen of our town hosts it. But it's always huge & so much fun! Thanks Vicky, for the 5 & heart. Have a wonderful day!
Comment: Thank you for the Oz card. I lived there once, but didn't go out to WA much.
Response: You're very welcome! I envy on living in Oz once. I have always wanted to go there. But never had the money to & never will. Ah well, I can always dream, ha! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the great notecards and chatty note. :) I love learning how alike we are to others by reading profiles too! <3 I hope all is well with you and that things are feeling more hopeful with spring's arrival. (my daughter is still on here, maybe there was just something funny going on with SB the day you looked)
Comment: This card was absolutely hilarious to receive because last week my boyfriend (from New York) and I (from the west coast) tried Cracker Barrel for the first time! Haha! We played the peg game until we got our food, and we cracked up at it being on the card. It originated in a suburb of Nashville! Anyhoo, thank you for sharing! Hope you are well and thank you again!
Response: Now that's just crazy, that I just randomly send you the Cracker Barrel PC & you and you boyfriend were there recently & for the first time, ha! What are the odds on that happening, wow! Esp. playing the very same game on PC. How weird! But my hubby & I so love Cracker Barrel ! But haven't been back there since Covid started. We plan to go there this coming Summer. Can't wait! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: I like the fairy card. Our youngest daughter loved dressing up as a fairy. I use to help her make wings. She and our young granddaughter both went out for Halloween before Covid as fairies. :)
Response: So glad you enjoyed the Fairies PC. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: It was a cool old inn, here is something about it: https://www.poconorecord.com/story/entertainment/2016/06/05/1920-tourist-flock-to-hill/27957770007/. Scroll down to June 11. Not much, but Google it and there is an inside photo of people dancing.
Response: Yes, It certainly was a cool Inn. I did do more research after I sent the PC out to you and did find the same thing you found, people dancing inside. It was a really neat find! Thanks very much, for the 5 and heart.
Comment: Thank you for the Motley Crue card, I always enjoy an 80s retro moment :)
Response: You're very welcome. I was kind of leery though sending the Motley Crue PC. As didn't know how you felt about that group. But I'm an 80's music lover through & through. Thanks very much, for the 5 and heart.
Comment: Lucky me to get you!! Thank you for the great selection of vintage postcards! I love the Texas one because they really tried to make it accurate for sure! Adorable notecard you used also!!xxMuggleMom
Response: You are more than welcome! I received your email btw. Will write back as soon as I can. I've been sickly lately with the Chemo. Anyway, I'm so happy you enjoyed what I sent you. Thanks so much for 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for hosting this - it was fun! I love the postcard you used - good movie! Oh, I love cherries and sweet potatoes too!! And apple pie and brownies, yes yes yes LOL! I just ate breakfast and now I am already hungry, ha!! xoxo
Response: Oh, I love to host swaps, when I'm to par. Which isn't too often. But happy you liked the funny Studio Ghibli PC and my answers. I'm big fan of Manga movies. Thanks so much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely postcards and your note :) The weather is crazy here as well, it should be spring already, but in the morning when I went out it was -7°C (19.4F), which was crazy! I hope you have a better situation in Pennsylvania ! :)
Response: So glad you enjoyed what I sent. Our weather here in Pennsylvania hasn't so nicer & warmer. We had a beautiful day of 60 degrees of warmth. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the retro cake and recipe PC. Reminds me of a cake my mom made, but with cherry pie filling in top.
Response: You are so welcome & glad you liked it. Like I said before, I wish could see more of that recipe. I love to cook and bake. But love baking a lot more. As I love making everything from scratch. So much more fun. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the PC - I love loons! And moose, too! Our weather can't make up it's mind - hot or cold - rain or sunshine! Hurry Spring!
Response: You're so welcome & happy you liked it. I did as well. Loved all different animals & birds on it. Yeah, Our weather is the exact same way as yours. It's like this every year in March. I can't wait for actual Spring weather to be here already. Thanks very much, for the 5 and heart.
Comment: Hello Debbie, I received your absolutely wonderful turtle postcard today. Thank you so much for sending this one to me <3 We didn't get much snow this winter over here. It snowed several times but only for a few hours and nothing lasted for more than a day or so. It's good for driving to work if there's not much snow but for me it's not a proper winter without ice and snow... Maybe next time... :-) Wishing you all the best <3
Response: You're so welcome for the Turtle PC and so very happy you liked it so much! Lucky you over there in your part of Germany, not getting a whole lot of snow. We sure had our fair share of it, ugh! I'll be so happy once Spring has sprung here in PA. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Oh I loved your pig post card and telling me all about the pigs on your farm when you were younger. My brother back in the day, raised pigs for his FFA project. A friend of my parents would come hold the piglets. She just loved the babies. Thanks again!
Response: I am so glad, you really liked my piggy postcard ! You're so welcome for the PC & my piggy story. Happy you enjoyed it. Like your brother Tim, my did also do the FFA and he also did 4H. He always come in 2nd place for both. But was still great and so proud of his achievements. I too loved piglets! So dang cute they are! Thanks so much for the 5 & heart, ratings.
Comment: Hi, Debbie! Thank you for the cute snowman postcard! It's beautiful! It sounds like you've been having similar weather to what we have here. For a few weeks, it was snowing here pretty much every second day. We have so much snow, there's really nowhere to put it at this point, so hopefully it doesn't snow again. Like you, I'm also really looking forward to Spring. I hope you have a great day!
Response: Hi Cassie ! So happy you got the coloring PC! Yay! I worry every time I send a PC out, as to whether it makes it or not. I think our winter is just about over. I hope anyway. Oh, We will get 8 or 10 inches of snow here & there till March is over. But at least, we won't have anymore Ice storms and below 0 temperatures. I hope it's getting better weather there. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: lol I often wondered about that horrible noise in the trees by these unseen bugs. Then when I finally saw a cicada .... oy vey was I surprised not at all what I thought they would look like. hahaha thank you for the great card. 3/4
Response: Glad you liked it We had our Cicadas happening already here in PA. Now it will be 2025 for next happening. They don't bother anyone and they don't bite either. I think they're neat. But from afar, ha! Thank you very much, for the 5 and heart.
Comment: Thanks for the card. It reminds me that I don't see caterpillars much anymore. When I was a kid we used to collect all kinds in jars. Maybe I'm just not looking for them.
Comment: Hi Deb! I received your letter today and really enjoyed reading it. I love your writing style. I felt I was sitting across from you and you were chatting with me! Thank you for the mushroom bookmark, too. 😊... Karla, 2/28/22
Response: You're very welcome Karla! Thanks for rating me.
Comment: I enjoyed reading your answers to the questions! You received more snow than us. For our area they said 2 inches for the month on average. It was cold, though. Thank you!
Response: Oh we got the coldness here as well. It's been getting down to the single digits at night lately. I certainly can't wait for Spring to finally get here. I don't mind snow. The cold I can live without. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hello Debbie,
Thanks for the lovely bookmarks.WOW, i cant even imagine what it would be like to have that much snow that wont melt! If i take an icecream out of the freezer and walk to my room and open it, it has already started to melt! The best thing since sliced bread is my Yeti. I take it everywhere - i put some ice in it before flying to WA (3&1/2 hour flight) and then it was in the hire car for 2 days and when i got it out and shook it, there was still ice in it! Luckily i got crab claw orange, while it was still available!
Thankyou also for the postage stamps!
Response: You're so welcome for the swap & so happy you like them! I hate our Winters here in Pennsylvania. If we had the money to move, you can bet we would move to South Carolina. We had lived in Florida for 8 years once upon a time and it's just not our cup of tea to live there again. It sounds great where you live ! I have always wanted so much, to go see Australia. If could afford, I'd probably never want to leave, ha! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! I love your pc - so cute! I loved reading about your fur babies! I can see why Isis has slowed down with being 14 and why Jasper is still going strong at 2! Please give both a cuddle from me! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Very welcome and so happy you liked the PC. You bet I'll give them a cuddle for you. I cuddle both quite often. They both lay on each side of me, in my big recliner chair. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks for the great YouTuber recommendation! Your postcard went on a real journey getting to me, too--it was apparently delivered to the wrong address several times, but I've got it now! :D
Response: Very welcome! And, Oh my on the travelling of my PC! I wonder how on earth it was delivered twice though, to 2 different addresses? Scratching my head, ha! But glad you got it safely finally. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Two wonderful PCs from you in one day! I love this little Australian koala mail carrier :) I've been looking for a new job lately and trying to figure out where I want to move to this summer. We had a little bit of snow, less than an inch :)
Response: You're more than welcome! I wish you all the luck in the world, on getting a new job. They're so far & few between anymore. I hope you get something you like & pays so well. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: I love the Christmas recipe cards! And the Swiss Potatoes recipe does sound delicious, thanks very much!
It's 64° here today and we are predicted to get 6" of snow Friday, I love new england🙂
I hope that you are well,
Response: So glad you like all I sent. I hope you didn't get more than 6 inches of snow. We're having a snowstorm right now & to get up to 12 inches, ugh! Thanks much for the 5 & heart. Have a wonderful day.
Comment: Thank you so very much for all the wonderful postcards ❤️❤️❤️ Also thank you so very much for all the lovely goodies you sent me❤️❤️❤️ I hope you have a speedy recovery. I did have carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand and it did feel much better after..Also I have bone spurs in both heels as well but thankfully no pain from them yet.
Response: You're very welcome. I had Carpal tunnel done on my left hand, back in 2010. But I fear it's coming back again, sadly. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Mahalo 🤙for the Hawaiian PC you sent and funny enough it came with the care package I got from my aunty in Oahu today. I thought "why is she sending me a postcard of the Pink Palace" maybe she was telling me a story about how they are going to rip it up or something...then I realized it was a swap PC, LOL! What a coincidence!! I'll have to share some ono goodies if we are partners again since you have a love of the ʻĀina also🌺!! xxMuggleMom
Response: You're most welcome! Cute story about thinking my PC was from your aunt, hee hee ! I didn't realize you were from Hawaii.. Thank you very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for your play list! I listened to it today - it was a great time. A special thanks for these ones: Walk Me Home by P!NK, It's My Life by No Doubt, Hear Me by Imagine Dragons & Edge of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks)
Response: So glad you enjoyed listening to the songs. Especially the ones you liked best. Thanks very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hey Debbie! Got your list. I interpreted this swap differently than you did but still loved your list. Some of these are songs that I love too - and a couple I hadn't thought of in a while.Thank you!
Response: Yeah, I had to be different, lol ! I couldn't pass up putting the song, that goes with the artist. But happy you liked it either way. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely notecard and your nice note about what you love about spring! I didn't think about it but you are right sitting on the soft green grass is really a wonderful thing about spring!
Response: So welcome for all I sent and glad you liked what I wrote. I so look forward to Spring! I beginning to have cabin fever, ha! Thank you very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hello Debbie, thank you so much for the quotes, it's funny we selected a few of the same ones. I also loved the card, it's one of my favorite National Parks. Hugs, Luisa
Response: You're more than welcome! Glad you liked what I wrote & noting we share some of the same quotes.😊 I thought the note card I wrote on, would sort of remind us a bit of Lord of the Rings. Thank you very much, for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful letter! I loved reading it and getting to know you and your family! I will definitely be answering back in the next few days and am looking forward to many more conversations with you!
Response: Wow, You got my letter fast! But happy that you did and you enjoyed reading it. Yay! I can't wait to hear back from you! Looking forward to it! Thanks so much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely swap with cool stamps! We never do much for Valentine’s day...lol. Although my son always makes me a card that gives me a big smile. Hope your dinner went well & that you had a nice evening!!!
❤️ Best wishes
Response: So very welcome! Dinner & the quiet night was very nice. How sweet, your son makes you a Valentine's Day card! Gosh, I miss those days! But I saved everything from when my 5 children were young. I go in the attic sometimes & reminiscence. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks for sharing your list and for the stickers. I also prefer an actual book over an ereader. I need to give myself time to read! I enjoy thrift shopping. Haven't done much lately. Maybe Monday since I'm off work.
Response: You're so welcome! Thanks very much for 5 & heart.
Comment: Wow! This pc traveled faster than all the others so far, lololol. Thank you for the beautiful Miyako island pc. It is sunny and 59 degrees here. I don’t envy all your snow! Stay warm my friend.
Response: I'm actually surprised, the PC only took a few days to get there. Considering PA. is one of slowest states for mail, to & from. But it's great it made it there & that goes without saying. Because most of my PC's disappear. Anyway, You're welcome and thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie, I remember and love quite a few of the favorites on your list. A few I probably would have chosen for one of my faves as well if I'd had thought of it at the time. Thanks so much for sharing! 🌹🌹🌹
Response: You're most welcome! It was a really fun swap, so thank you for doing this! I would love to see another swap like this from you & of course different.😊 Thanks so much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie! Thank you for the vintage building pc and share! The weather was terrible here last week but the snow is melting and it is much milder out - thank you very much! I can tell we are not used to really bad weather any more cause things came to a stop - mail, work, school! Hope the weather improves for you sooner than later! Hugs and happy Swapping! ;)
Response: Hey there Vicky! You're so welcome for the building PC & glad you enjoyed it. Must be where you live, it doesn't all that much or least snowstorm. Here it does as soon as December begins, ugh! I sometimes wish we could move back to Florida. But gotta have money for that.🙁 Ah well! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: I love butterflies too. My oldest granddaughter used to call the flyby's when she was little and get so excited seeing them. thank you and it is a pleasure to have you in these swaps. 2/9
Response: happy to hear, you too love butterflies! I used to have quite a collection of butterfly figurines & pictures. I finally had to downsize, as I was running out of room to put them. I was obsessed, lol ! My oldest grand daughter when she little, couldn't butterfly either. Only she called them butturfly. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart ratings.
Comment: Hello Debbie,
Thanks for the great PCs.
Snoopy was very big in Australia when i was in primary school - early 70s. I remember my cousin was crazy about him and she got this little deckchair that was for him - the fabric part was blue and white if i remember correctly. I remember she had heaps of snoopy stuff. I wasnt that into him, but i became a starwars addict after i saw the first movie. Any money i got - for birthday, christmas, chores or whatever, i saved and spent it on those figurines. But we actually played with them, so they got broken and lost.
is snoopy still popular inthe US?
Brings back some old memories that one!
Response: You're so welcome & so happy to see my swap made it to you. Yay, happy day! You asked, Is Snoopy still popular in US? Yes, Very much so. Actually the whole Peanuts gang is Popular. But more so Snoopy. Which I myself am the biggest fan of Snoopy. Like you, I too am a big fan of Star Wars as well. Still am. Both old & new. Thanks so much for the 5 & heart ratings.
Comment: Thanks for this cute harp seal postcard! You have more snow than we do! We have bounced up to mild temperatures (30s) and calm winds and seas for the last few days! I would much rather have snow than mud and ice. Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: So welcome! Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: Thanks, we only have one covered bridge left in our county. Arsonists burned several and this last one was moved to the county fairgrounds to safeguard it. We have about a foot of snow on the ground but no more snow coming they say until late next week. Rich
Response: How awful, the covered bridges were burnt down, except one! Why would anyone do that?! Good that they have the one left protected. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: I will send a couple to my two great grandsons as they live to receive animals. Thank u for a nice collection and note. A note always makes me give a heart rating. Love hearing from my Internet friends.
Response: You're more than welcome for the selection & happy you enjoyed them and my note.😊 Thanks so much for the 5 & heart !😁 Have a great day!
Comment: Hi Debbie. When I first saw this postcard I didn't know what creature it was but it reminded me a little of a kangaroo and lo and behold the quokka is related! Thank you for this postcard of this cute and interesting creature!
Response: Very happy you like it and you're welcome for it. I love the Quokka's. I wish I could see them in real life. Thanks very much for the 5 & heart.
Comment: I love the COVID collage postcard you sent! Where did you find it? Thanks again for awesome mail!
Response: You're so welcome again! Happy you like the Covid PC. You asked, where did I find it? I got from etsy.com. But it was the last one. 🙁 Sorry. But etsy does have other ones. Thanks much for the 5 & heart. Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you for the peaceful waterfall card. I have never been to PA but I remember 2 falls in Oregon from our trip there in 2004. Multnomah Falls and the smaller Horseshoe falls. I loved them both.
Response: Welcome! Glad you like it. Thanks much for the heart.
Comment: Debbie- Thanks so much for your five online shop suggestions ! I’ve never heard of desktopsupplies.com nor have I heard of the clothes under ten dollars shop. I love thrift books 😀 Happy Swapping and take care!
Response: You're most welcome and thanks much for the heart.
Comment: I have to agree! What an uninteresting thing to put on a post card! Some things are better left in museums to see with your own eye than to send on a post card! Such as sword guards! 😂 thanks for sharing!
Response: Glad you agree on that PC. You're right, things like that should left to seen in museums. Thanks so much for the heart.
Comment: I love bats so I think this card is great!! We have small brown and black bats where I live and they only occasionally find themselves in my house! We just catch them with a towel and toss them back outside to fly away!
Response: Glad you like it. Thanks so much for the heart.
Comment: Hi Debbie - how lovely to have you as a partner! I do have a soft spot for vintage pcs, so your Happy Mail really made me happy! Happy Valentine's Day to you as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Thank you for the pretty card. It will go in my notebook with my other colored PCs. Hope you had a good Christmas with your family. I remember cooking like that in the past. Now I don't do anything special except for maybe a special Oatmeal cookie recipe that has been made for many years in our family. Although I didn't even make them this year. Stay safe.
Response: You're so welcome & so happy the card made it to you safely. Thanks so much for the heart. Happy New Year!
Comment: Thank you so much for the darling Star Wars PC and your story! I have had a hard time deciding who this card was from as I had not received the other partner's PC yet and you forgot to sign your name. I was looking again tonight, and it clicked - You were with your son and she said she had no children. Sorry it took me so long to get this rated. Have a very Happy New Year!
Comment: Thank you for the great postcards and for hosting! I love them all and appreciate the extras too! We had a good holiday, very busy after getting home from a vacation earlier that week. It was good though and I’m glad yours was too! Happy New Year!!! : )
Comment: Loved the card. Definitely a winter wonderland. My grandparents had a wooden sled and would attach it to a 4 wheeler and pull me in it. So many good memories. Miss them so much! TYVM for sharing your story. Loved the extras. Merry Christmas 🎁 o
Hello Deb. Many thanks for your lovely postcard (and a Christmas one at that)! Love it. Now that's a meal and a half that you will be cooking for Christmas Dinner. I also love your handwriting. Thank you also for writing in black ink - as the text is so much easier to read than colored writings. All the best to you today and always, Deb. Vita Lynné.
Comment: Thank you Deb! The second envie arrived today lickety split! Lol So excited to receive your recipes and can't wait to try the your great great grandmoms recipes! What a treasure, thank you very much for sharing them with me. And i 💕 gingerbread. Yummmmm! I enjoyed the greeting and your nice note as always. Merry Christmas hugs from Portland!

Response: You're so welcome! I got these Christmas cat cards from sugarhousegreetings.com. They are expensive. But it's my one time splurge. Anyway, Thanks very much for the heart. Merry Christmas to you too!
Comment: Thank you so much for your pretty snow postcard <3 That's a lot of snow indeed. I haven't this much snow in years, at least here where I live. We have a little every winter but normally, it's gone the next day:-( This season, we had some snow days already (which is not very common these days). Normally, I love the snow but it was very hard to drive to work in the morning. And the snow was gone by noon so it wasn't really worth it... But I hope for more to come around Christmas:-) Wishing you a merry Christmas!
Response: Happy you liked the snow PC. Sorry you don't get much snow there. We get snow all the time here in Canton, PA. I'll send you some, hee! Thanks very much for the heart. Merry Christmas to you as well!
Comment: Thank you, Deb, for your lovely shadow box snowman card that arrived today! Did you make those gift tags enclosed? Very pretty. I love the postcard of the vintage stockings illustration. 😍 Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas (that song is playing at the moment LOL) 🎄😊... Karla, 12/11
Response: You're so welcome ! Happy you like what I sent ! Thanks so much for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful vintage lighthouse postcard! Since I read the lamplighters by Emma stonex I’m a little bit obsessed with lighthouses 😅
Im jealous that you’ve visited it! I’ve never visited a lighthouse 🙈 but I really want to! Since then I hope for more lighthouse postcards ☺️

Comment: Deb, I haven't been to the boardwalk in a long time. I have a friend that lives in Ocean City. It was fun to see the "Tent City" that pops up in the summer. I wouldn't mind seeing the boardwalk and all the tacky shops again either!! Thanks for sharing your favorite place with me ❤
Comment: Thank you for your card and message. I am excited to spend the holiday with my mom and siblings this year since we did not get to be together last year. I have not have had or heard of this carrot bake but it sounds delicious and I will give it a try, maybe it will become something new at our dinner. Thank you for sharing. Hope your holiday is amazing and Happy Thanksgiving!
Comment: Wow! You have completely blown me away. Seriously though, I have talents or skills that may not have lasted that long, there were just a multitude of them. Quantity over quality isn't quite the right way to put it, but more than an average amount of talents
Comment: Hi Deb! Thank you for the sweet Thanksgiving card, message and stickers! We will be with our kids for Thanksgiving, I am so excited! Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving as well! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hi Deb! Always so nice to hear from you. Love the pc you sent. We don't get to see Willets here in Central FL. ... so it's nice to have the pc..especially if I decide to drive the hour to the coast, I will be able to identify one 😀
You are so lucky to have feeders. I've had them in every yard until now. We aren't allowed to feed the wildlife in our community ☹
Thank you for the pc!! ❤💜💝🤎💙💛💚💖
Comment: What delicious sounding recipes Deb!! The snowballs have definitely caught my attention, they sound like fun to make and are a little unusual! Thanks for the extras and the lovely card xx Hope you too have a great holiday 😘
Comment: thank you ... i found out the difference between a macaroon and a macaron.. I love macaroons... but not those pretty French macarons... I took a bit of one once...turns out not a fan. but they are beautiful. 11/13
Comment: Thank you for the prairie dog card. They are so cute. I have seen many of them over the years. I remember once we were in Hutchison, KS and we saw a whole colony of them in a grassy area by the highway. Great swapping with you again.
