This is where we post our wishes - maybe things we collect, something we can no longer find in our area, things we have always wanted etc, etc. No wish is too unusual (though common sense is appreciated!); you never know what will turn up.

We must all abide by these PBS rules :
You may not wish for money or money-like items such as gift cards, or for monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but you may not solicit funding. This includes donations for 'gofundme' and other fund-raising events.
No buying or selling or advertising. No spam posts.
No wishing for credits.  Credits are bought, sold and loaned only in the Book Bazaar forum, or use the PBS Kiosk to purchase.
Do NOT ask for books, since books are swapped on the site and book deals are made in the Book Bazaar. Sorry, but you may not ask for free books of any kind. (Unpostable books are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread.  There is also a Damaged/Unpostable Virtual Box in the Games forum.)

Our own RAOK rules: 
Please do not offer payment for the things you are sent, including postage. RAOKs are given freely, asking nothing in return except a thank you. You could pay it forward by granting a wish yourself.
Please limit your wishes to no more than 10. Lists could get very long. You can always edit as you go along.
Unlike many other forums, we ask that you do NOT reply within the threads. We do everything by PMs between members. This keeps the threads clutter-free and easy to use. When you come to this ***I Wish*** thread, you see wishes. In the ***RAOK*** thread, it's all about things we are giving away - simple and easy. And to protect your privacy, please do not post your address in the thread - it's all done via PM.
Please check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!
PLEASE say THANK YOU to the person who grants your wish.  You may use our monthly ***Thank You*** thread, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the member(s) who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Check the RAOK thread before you post wishes -- the thing you want may already be there for the asking!  If you see a wish you can grant, just PM the poster for their address.

And please remember, if one of the moderators contacts you about a posting, then we are only trying to keep the forum running smoothly and according to PBS rules. If you are asked to change, move, or delete your post, please do so. Most of you know that the PBS team does get involved to edit posts, and accounts do get suspended, if rules are broken. We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!

If you have questions, feel free to contact me.

My wishes this month are very easy, please pray that this country can get its act together and try to help one another.

I need to add prayers my my other halfs family.  He got a call tonight that one of his cousins committed suicide and was only found after his daughter called a sheriff since he hadn't responded.  Jetson had been deceased for 5 days.  Depression is so sad!

More prayers needed.  We have made it through the cousin's death only to find out that my brother's MIL died in the night.  Now off on another excursion for more wakes and funeral.

On Easter Sunday, we had a wake for Aunt Francis.  On Monday she was put to rest.  She had a good life and lived to a good age but it is still hard.

Love those around you.  I know that since the first of April, we have lost a total of 5 family and friends and it is hard to think now of all the things that we should have said or done. 


Please prayers for safe travel as I will be traveling alone tomorrow 4 hours each way and I am exhausted.


Thank you!

Happy April!!! This month is special to me because it's my birthday month. heart

My wishes this month are:

- Vintage magazines of any subject, but I especially love fashion and home decor ones.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate the help, Debbie

We are helping with a 2-1/2 year old boy that doesn't speak many words. Mom doesn't think there is a need for testing yet, so we hope to help by using flash cards, or any other means to promote his vocabulary. If you have toddler word flash cards, or any other vocabulary educational tools, they'd be much appreciated! Debbie

As usual, I wish for Minions. Thank you.

And because it's the season, I love all the PEEPS "stuff" out there. Not the actual edibles, but anything else with PEEPS BUNNIES (not the chicks). They're soooo cute!

Happy April everyone!

I'm still looking for two hard to find items. First is these adorable animal Dixie cups: https://www.amazon.com/Dixie-Bathroom-Cups-Assorted-designs/dp/B002T5DP0G PLEASE do not spend almost $10 on them! These cups are more readily found in a blue box but that is not the same at all! There are at least 10 different animals in the yellow box and only 4 in the blue box. They are just cute and always bring me a smile.

It's time again for some beary cute care Bear stamp stickers: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Care-Bears-2003-Rainbow-Heart-Sunshine-Patricks-Clover-Stamps-Stickers-/172487344546 Thanks and love to Lori (catsanddogs) for having sent me so many of these over the years. Original care bears are just so cute :)

Prayers indeed as Vicky said for our country and world. As Easter grows nearer may each of you walk closer with God. God Bless you and thank you!

If you get a chance you might want to check out things to give away from me often.  I am sorting through boxes of stuff and we are making two rooms out of our attic room so we are going through everything there too.  I will be updating regularly.
