I see you have added 2 trackers. I'd suggest joining a few trackers before hosting your own to get the hang of it.

Oi! I didn't see you had posted here until after I flooded you with AQ mail about postals. Anyway, if you want (if I haven't become too annoying), I can send you postal instructions that The Woodshed shared with me. They were super helpful when I started with postals.

The start date on a postal is the day that you put the stamps in the mail. You should probably give folks a few weeks to carve the stamps, make logbooks, etc.

So sad! There are no postal rings open. Guess I'll have to do something about that. Singles and rings. Let's see what I can come up with.

I was just thinking the same thing. Maybe because it's summer? Anyway, if you post one, you know I'll end up joining :)

I've thought about sending out some singles..

I've had to bow out for a while due to job issues. I miss it.. :(

I do have the Broadway ring that starts in August. . Guess I need to get started on that.

I have wanted to do my first one this fall with a title of QUIRKY words and phrases, some being 'rapscallion', 'kitty wampus', 'rootin tootin', to name a few.

What would those 1-4 words conjure in just a single stamp ? =)

If someone wants to start one, I'll surely join (and don't call me Shirley)

LOL
Thank you.

I forgot to mention "good grief", fiddlesticks", "Holy Mackerel", "buck stops here", "bottom line", "hog wild" and "higgledy piggley"

Just sayin . . .

Best entries are of course 2 words or less lol

So, we're sitting here talking about our find counts and whatnot and check me out.

1400 postal finds! What? What? #rockinit

And this number doesn't include my finds in PLB's before AQ was doin' it.

How's yours?

You've given the USPS lots of business!

My mailman is kept busy with all those bubble wrap envelopes I get (380+ postals for me).
Hmm.... I think I ought to do a postal in honor of him, and give him the logbook when it finishes its travels.

Hmm. I'm going to have to look at the calendar and maybe do another rendition of this ring. I've also enjoyed the naked letterboxing ring you hosted (still have one more box to go!) and would totally do that again since my post office never rejected a package :) But maybe add a twist where the stamp has to relate to the package which somehow relates to your trailname?! Oh the possibilities!

I've got a few!

-Tessellations (I made one as an experiment and would love to see what other people come up with! Design instructions in the link if you have no idea what I'm talking about)
https://www.math.nmsu.edu/~pmorandi/math112f00/EscherRectangle.html
-Stars, planets, and space
-Robots in peril
-Create your own super hero
-Favorite meme

Yeah... I know my ideas are kinda out there. I guess I like the idea of encouraging people to design their own stamps since those are my favorite.

- misheard lyrics
- pressured to politics (who would you want to be in political office/running the country if you could hand pick them and why)
- laughing at ourselves (do something out of the blue, for you, and create a postal on this - use a gouge if you are a knife carver, etc., give yourself permission to try something new and make mistakes)
- bucket list
- AQ themes
- favorite joke
- biggest life regret
- funniest life moment
- Meaning of life

1. Clue board game theme (you pick your weapon of choice.)
2. country flags
3. atomic elements
4. desserts theme
5. item you'd take with you if stranded on a desert island.

I've just discovered postals but i would also like a simple cat theme as well. :P
