OT: A personal request, if possible

Hello fellow weavers,

I do have a small favor to ask, if possible. My father (well, stepfather actually) turned 83 yesterday. He is currently in holidays and he supported me all my life. So when he gets back, I would love to surprise him with postcards from all over the world wishing him a Happy Birthday.

So if you want to and have a few minutes and a stamp to spare, please send a card to:

Jan Fuellemann
Attn. Manfred Voegele
Ellmerweg 13
31224 Peine

Sorry for the OT and thanks for reading :slight_smile:

Kind regards


What a nice idea. Are you sure he won’t think it a bit odd to get all those cards from strangers? I hope he’s a stamp collector; it would add extra interest!

He did travel around the world as a Journalist, so I think he will love the pictures and greetings very much :slight_smile:

Hi Jan,

These days I send you one from Spain, Málaga.

Regards :wink:

I’ll send him a New Forest one.

Mine is in the mail. Look forward to seeing how long it takes to wing its way there.

I’ll let you know… :slight_smile: Thank you

Got the card. Will send today from Richmond upon Thames.


Lovely idea I’ll try and get one in the post


@Fuellemann I’m sending a postcard from San Francisco today. Don’t know how long it will take, but it will get there eventually!


The first one arrived today from UK :slight_smile: Thank you :pray:

a big THANK YOU from my father, who was overwhelmed by all the cards and good wishes :slight_smile:

Thank you very much to all of you!


Wow! So cool! Really happy he was pleasantly surprised by the cards! :grin::grin:

@Jan Oh no! It looks like my card from San Francisco did not get there in time. I hope it does arrive!

@Jan I see the card I sent from Roswell! So tickled that it arrived. Hope your father had a happy birthday.
