Up Topic General / Letters and Opinions / Holiday Card Exchange
- - By brneydrnnr (barney cougar) [us] Date 2018-09-19 3:53 PM
There was a decent sized group of folks here that used to all send each other cards each Christmas to brighten up the holidays and to fatten up our card displays. I've still been sending them out to the last list I had, but it's been a few years since we formally did this.

Is there anyone now that would be interested in starting this back up? I'm up for doing the grunt work (compiling names & addresses and sending out the list to anyone that wants to participate. But I'd need a show of hands and I guess it's better to start now rather than later. It's pretty fun to get cards from all over from your "internet friends" which isn't near as weird now as it was when we first started this up.

Anyway - let me know here and if we get enough peeps, I'll get the ball rolling! :happy:

Parent - - By Tim [us] Date 2018-09-20 6:16 PM
Wait, do I have to send one to The Beard?
Parent - - By blazer85 [us] Date 2018-09-22 12:13 PM
YES!
Parent - By Tim [us] Date 2018-09-25 4:42 PM
Maybe I’ll send him a training log. Then he can post his runs there and stop posting topicless dailies.: pbbt::laugh:

I mostly post in women's but over here off and on and met a number of L&Oers.  So if you'll have me, you can count me in as well.
Parent - - By Mookiethedog Date 2018-09-20 8:45 AM
I'll do it with the expectation people send me money to compensate for the higher postage from Canada.:hug:

Solidarity for us!   It's bad enough with the tariffs :hug:
Parent - - By Tim [us] Date 2018-09-20 6:15 PM
I was going to suggest keeping costs down by sending your cards to my girlfriend's house (I could get them when I come to visit her). But even domestic postage is pricey. I know, it costs a lot to deliver the mail by sled dog...
Parent - - By Mookiethedog Date 2018-09-20 8:22 PM
Maybe we could send them to her with your return address on them and she can have them returned to sender?:hug:
Parent - - By Tim [us] Date 2018-09-21 7:11 AM
You’d still have to pay for the sled dogs...
Parent - By Mookiethedog Date 2018-09-21 1:18 PM
I've got lots of dogs :hug:

Anyone want to mail cards to NZ? :grin::sad:
Parent - - By Mookiethedog Date 2018-09-21 1:19 PM
Nova Zcotia?   Yes....definitely if I'm going to pony up for the Americans I can send one within the Commonwealth:hug:
Parent - By stickywicket Date 2018-09-21 3:37 PM
:grin: Awesome.

Good thing this thread was posted pretty early. Enough time for us to set up a savings account for postage, and organize the caravan of kiwis and penguins to ship cards to the mainland. :cool:
Parent - By blazer85 [us] Date 2018-09-20 11:03 AM
Are you trying to guilt me into doing cards?  I haven't sent them out since my mother died as no one has nagged me about since 2014.
Parent - - By triplejake (The Vampire Lestat) [us] Date 2018-09-20 11:27 AM
I'm in!  I'll go ahead and get a head start on the process by sending everyone a delightful holiday greeting  in this convenient electronic format:hug:

If anyone wants a card(s) addressed/postmarked from the North Pole, I'm a current resident and would be happy to help. :happy::hug:

North Pole, AK :grin:
Parent - - By stickywicket Date 2018-09-21 9:38 PM
:shocker!::cool:

It'll take a lot of penguins to ship a card from us to the North Pole...
Parent - By Blueberry Sky Date 2018-09-22 9:51 PM
I love penguins. :hug:

So happy to see lots of willing participants for this year - thanks guys! I'll make it easy and for anyone interested, if you'll message me your mailing address by the end of October (that should be plenty of time to get the info out to everyone else) I'll compile the list and send everyone the information.

Thanks for being awesome! :hug:
