The new official place to post when mail has arrived at, or departed from your address.

Mail includes Snail Mail Letters, and Post Cards.

This is a fine idea, and it will keep down the chatter on the Snail Mail and Postcard Swap threads. Hear, hear!

Thanks! I hope it works.

This is a good idea, but is it really 'official'?

'FPN post office'--I like it. Umm, are we allowed to chat on this thread? :)

I almost like it, but there should be two threads -- one for letters, one for postcards -- and they should be pinned.

Don't get it myself. I'll stick to the other thread. It was dynamic and ever changing. Seems the mods are trying to fix something that isn't broken. Would have been nice to ask us what we thought. I'm grumpy now. Can't get a forum started for Lamy Pens but they want to break up the postcard thread. Sheeesh!

The mods have chosen not to pin this thread at this time. (Perhaps they'll reconsider at some point) However, if we all use this thread for updates (and chatter, why not?) it should stay near the top.

...As for "Official" sure, why not? :)~

Oh, PC in from inkypete. Absolutely lovely card!

It is customary to have the in/out chatter in the Postcard Swap thread, I gather, but this is not the case with the Snail Mail Writing list thread.

penhorse and jazz tonight, yesterday, PCs
The voice of this guitar of mine, at the awakening of the morning, wants to sing its joy;
I sing to your volcanoes, to your meadows and flowers, that are like mementos of the greatest of my loves;
If I am to die away from you, may they say I am sleeping, and bring me back home.

I've now pinned this topic, because a number of people have so requested. The snail and postcard topics should now contain just expressions of interest and newcomers in particular should find it easier to get going.

As has been pointed out, this is simply returning those threads to their original purpose. Let's move on now.

I don't get it either. The other thread had messages about sending and receiving cards from the beginning.

Will I get in trouble for not moving on if I just add that I like this? It really is nice to have these two things separate and, I think, much easier to use this way. Thanks and thanks for deciding to pin the topic.

I've received a generous number of cards and letters, and want to thank you all very much.

I won't list all the names, but I promise you will all soon be receiving replies.

I do, however, want to let Kabe know that I received your "Old Man and the Sea" postcard yesterday (postmarked 17 Nov.).

So, we're seeing a great improvement in mail delivery time compared to the last card mailed from Baja California Sur!

Fantastico!

Actually, Jazz, I have reasons to believe that card was sent in September, regardless of the postmark
The voice of this guitar of mine, at the awakening of the morning, wants to sing its joy;
I sing to your volcanoes, to your meadows and flowers, that are like mementos of the greatest of my loves;
If I am to die away from you, may they say I am sleeping, and bring me back home.

This week I received cards from CraigR and Denny M.
I have to admit I have been very lazy recently and have a bit of a backlog. Replies to everyone out very soon.
Thank you.
