Four cards sent out today, in two swap-bot trades:
The dragon card was originally sent to me with some other cards in an envelope for another swap-bot trade. Now it is going out to Auburn, California in a “free postcard” trade. Since it has been years since I have stumbled into any of those racks of free ad postcards, I am grateful to have anything at all to send out in a trade such as this.
The remaining cards are going out in one of my favorite ongoing swap-bot trades, the “chunk o cardboard.” As the name implies, all that is required is that one mail out a chunk of cardboard…
…for the swap’s host in Saint Paul, Minnesota, though, I try to send something special. I created sea life postcards in sextuplicate a couple of months or so ago; I think this may be the third of the batch I am mailing out. The others I have sent are posted on this blog, too. I’m always happy for a chance to be paired with this member, & thank her for creating a cool swap.
The ginger ale is going to another swapper with whom I’ve been paired more than once in the past; she’s in Immingham, England, and though I am sure she’s encountered ginger ale, I have no idea if it would have been Canada Dry. All of a sudden, I have a great thirst for Schweppes.
And its famous Schweppervescence.
Back to the U.S., the dog treat panel is on its way to a swapper in Goleta, California. I tell her I wasn’t sure if my dog would go for this new product, as she doesn’t usually like snacks with what I’d call a “plastic-y” texture. Well, I needn’t have worried.
