If you are interested, could you note down your interest here, noting sender, receiver or both.
PM Me your addresses! Also PM your other friends here at Bettermost as well.
I think this will be great fun!

I Did. Thanks

I also thought this would be a good Idea too.
I got this in an e-mail and regardless of our political views we all support our brave men and women who are fighting for us.
I wanted to pass this along because I thought it would be nice.

A Great Idea!!!
When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:

          A Recovering American soldier
          c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
          6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
          Washington,D.C. 20307-5001

This is a really terrific idea!  The past few years I've been a slacker about sending holiday cards, but mayhap I'll improve.  Thank you, Richard, for posting the address for Walter Reed - a worthy cause, indeed.

Well folks we livein some strange times!
I should have checked out the info about Walter Reed before I posted it!
Somone smarter than me did  ;D and this is the deal!

YOu can't send a card, letter or package addressed to any soldier, any wonded soldier, any rcovering soldier, etc etc, etc.

Here is what Walter Reed says!

 http://www.wramc.amedd.army.mil/Lists/WRNews/DispForm.aspx?Id=25&

But fear not! There are other things we can do!!!!

Here are some links that will fill you in on how you can still send your love and support to our brave fighting men and women.

Here's another one.  Not sure how legit this is - a friend e-mailed it to me:

> Something cool that Xerox is doing --  only takes few minutes...and will make
> you feel good...as well as show our support for our men and women who will not
> be home for Christmas.

> If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com
> <http://www.letssaythanks.com/>  you can pick out a thank you card, and Xerox
> will print it and send it to a soldier that is currently serving in
> Iraq . You can't pick who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed
> services.

 How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!  This
> is a great site.  Please send a card.   It is FREE and it only takes a second.
>
> Whether you are for or against the war, our guys and gals over there need to

Glad you got my card Kelda!  I was wondering how long it would take it to reach you - it took 1 week.  I have Basset Hounds, and they're kind of slobbery at times, so the stamp is very appropriate for my household - most everything in my house is "sealed with dog slobber"!!!! ;D

I'm glad you got my card and that it brightened your day Richard  :) And I got yours as well. It also made my day. Thank you  ;D I have also received many cards from everyone else. It makes me feel good to get them. Someone was just saying the other day on TV how people don't write letters and such things anymore because of the internet. So it really does feel good to actually get something good in the mailbox. It's nice to see other people's writing and to see a real card instead of an electronic one. For those of you have not got cards from me yet they are definitely on the way. I just got a bunch sent off since I missed the mailman Saturday. I don't think I have sent this many cards out ever  ;D

Thanks for thinking of this idea Richard!!!

I hope to send cards again this year.  It's kinda nice, sitting down and having some hot cocoa or cider, reminiscing on the year - a very worthwhile ritual.  And so much fun to receive!

I went out shopping for Christmas cards this week. Asked for 'cowboy' themed Christmas cards (Richard sent me one last year!) ...

Went to Carlton Cards, Hallmark, heck I even cheched out 2 places in the gay village and no luck. I asked folks who were puttin em out and no one had seen any. (found my Studs & Spurs calendar though)

Anyone out there have better luck? (or am I the only one asking?)

Roland, eBay Canada has some Western-themed Christmas cards.  Maybe you'll find something you like over there.

Hey buds!

I just sent a couple of mass emails - the first for everybody in my address book with my new address here in Florida...the second to people I don't seem to have current addresses for.

If I missed you and you're interested in exchanging holiday cards, my apologies!  I did this really quickly.  Please PM me your info and I'll respond in kind.

Much Brokie Love,
Lynne

Merci for those interesting posts!

I would love to add my address, but must refrain since criminals followed me for years, and I had to sleep in my truck day time!!

And as some of you know, I still have such troubles.

Be assured that I loved you asking me for my addess !! So, such cards can be on here: on Bettermost, please ? Is that OK ? May I suggest ?

Au revoir,
hugs!  Here are two cards (sorry if bit blurred as I tried mabny times to better pics), very old as 1920 or 30's which were in my collection, each unsigned and mint and Made in Canada/North America, and now in a lady's collection which she enjoys ! She is a wonderful lady like you and you all are !

Clarissa, as I understand it the only adresses which are exchanged are the ones of the people who agreed to this last year and who particpated in the Christmas cards exchange last year. I didn't participate (although I did so in another postcard exchange activitiy) and therefore retracted my wish to be included.

It was a group of people who specifically agreed that their adresses are exchanged within the group for the purpose of Christmas cards exchange.

Nobody's adress was given without their permission or outside of the group that participated in the exchange. At least this was how things were handled in the (other) postcard exchange group I participated in. And I'm sure that Richard handled and will handle the adresses just as carefully.

It's not a widespread, uncontrolled distribution of all sorts of Brokie's contact info but a limited activity among a group which agreed to it.

Ah..OK...I'm all set to go with my cards this year!  I found some cool ones that I like a lot at Barnes and Noble, over by the Lights-Vigil-That-Wasn't.  They are very BrokebackMountainesque.  Who says procrastination doesn't pay?!

 ::)

The important thing to remember is that these are Holiday cards...not out of some disclaimer of Christmas, but because I intend to take the full season, which means until Epiphany, to actually do them, can put some thought into what to write.

 :-*

That's not unusual for me, but a weird thing I'm doing this year that I don't remember ever doing before is that I'm *hoarding* the ones I've received, like a squirrel with the last chestnut of winter.

They're going into a special pile by the Christmas tree.  I'm not sure what my plan is, Christmas Eve? Christmas Day?  But I'm not opening any until the time seems right.  It should be a celebration, with full focus, not at the same time you're opening the electric bill and the fast food inserts, IMHO.

Lynne, it sounds like you might even be a bit later than me in getting these cards sent out. Although I do have several more to send out tomorrow. I already sent out several on Friday and yesterday, but I still have more. I know some will not get to people by Christmas morning, but I do consider the season to last at least through New Years Day so hopefully everyone will receive them by then  ;D It does take me awhile cause I do write something in each one.

For those of you who live outside of the United States......and yes that includes you Kelda......you will be getting your cards late for sure, but you will be getting them since they actually did go in the mail before Christmas.

For those of you fretting about late Christmas cards, just remember there are TWELVE days of Christmas! It is now December 26 - the second day of Christmas. Just as long as your cards arrive before or on Epiphany (January 6) they won't be late! ;)

Chrissi.

I was thinking the same thing.

I know that Matt/ZK got his card all the way in NZ on Monday. So everyone else of the 12 I sent should have got theirs by now!

Chrissi and Jack - I got yours today! Thankyou!!

Jack - I wanna partner up with your for TAR too!

I would love to send cards to all my friends here at bettermost!
If you would like to exchange Christmas cards (holiday cards of you don't celebrate Christmas).
Post your address here or just PM me! I think it would be really cool!  ;D

I treasure the Christmas card I received from Rich...I even kept the envelope! I'll treasure each and every one of your messages because, who knows what tomorrow may bring? In Rich's memory, I send my love to all my BetterMost friends.

I usually send out sarcastic, irreverent cards, which match my humor.  This year, I sent out the cards that Rich would've sent out.

I had intended to go back to my usual cards next year, but I've received many compliments on my cards this year, so I may keep sending them.

I did have a few people who told me they missed the old, irreverent cards.
