Last Day To Participate!

Post by Miss Moppet » Fri November 19th, 2010, 10:58 am

If anyone else would like to join us, today is your last chance to say so!

I will draw up the list of who is sending to who over the weekend.

Anyone other than SonjaMarie and LoveHistory preferring not to post internationally, let me know either here or via a PM.

And finally, a delicate matter. :o We mostly get on pretty well here but people disagree from time to time. If there is anyone you do not want to be paired with, either to send or receive a card, PM me and I will take account of your requirements.

I promise to respect your confidentiality and all messages will self-destruct within 24 hours.

Just a safeguard. I had visions of things turning nasty:

and escalating some more...

and on the whole, it seemed best to take precautions.

Count me in too please - I've been so busy, I hadn't noticed this thread until now :o

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses

I prefer to send and receive cards from people outside of California. Not for personal reasons :) , but simply because I think it would be more fun and interesting.
