Happy mid July Everyone! I hope you are enjoying a safe and fun Summer :) It is time to please sign up, new rider and seasoned traveller, aboard Sticker Train 17! Who this train will be for is yet to be determined. Once sign ups are closed, I will look over the docket and see if anyone has yet to be the card rceipient. If not, we will start afresh. How does that sound? 

Same operations, always all are welcome to anytime add suggestions! This Sticker Train's theme will also be determined by the eventual end person :) Please remember, any stickers are welcome. I do ask that we stick with either half or full sheets as opposed to loose individual stickers for overall cargo. Each rider, please feel free to take and enjoy as many stickers as you like, but please contribute at least 3 sheets back aboard. This allows for selection for the next person and to build up our stash :) 

Please, please, post in this thread once you have received AND sent on the train. I still do not have a regular mail carrier. There have been a few times when we have had no delivery! My route gets tacked onto the end often of a regular route of someone. They do a wonderful job but as you know it can be helpful to know when mail is on the way to you. Tracking is not allowed to be posted anymore so if you have it and want to PM the person you have mailed to, that would be great. Keeping us all in the loop helps keep our trains running smoothly and so we all know where it is.  Plus, I know I sure enjoy reading everyone's (thank you)! train reports --keeps the prcoess active and FUN :) P.S. We all understand mailing delays happen, please do not ever feel badly about that, just try to let us (or me) know. We do ask as a general train rule that the packet be sent on within a few days of your receiving it. 

Friendly reminder to try and keep postage costs down so fun for all can be kept up, lol. Train cargo can certainly grow to 50 or 60 sheets. Anything else, anyone? 

Most important, always, these trains are for ALL of you. Please, always feel free to post or PM me with any suggestions. Big hugs and sincere thanks to everyone for keeping the spirit of our trains chugging along for so many routes! I do thank God that He has used our Sticker Trains to help us grow our friendships as we spread cheer. So...without further ado..please sign up by Sunday afternoon, July 30th (I am doing a quicker turnaround simply to allow for time to figure out who the card will be for :) to come aboard the happiest train in town! :) P.S. Newcomers most welcome! Remember to PM me your mailing info. 

Thank you. God Bless You!

If you have a window seat available I would like the right side please....if only aisle seats are available either side will be fine, I will TRY to keep my feet out of the aisle. If no seats are available,  ....I COULD ride in the luggage compartment as long as someone brings food in thier luggage...warning I will graze.

If no space is available or if train is not coming within 100 miles of my house then I shall happily wait for the next one.....and collect stickers of course to pay my fare on the NEXT available sticker train....but I'm always a willing traveler!

Love the train, Michelle, thanks :)

So far: 1. Amy 2 Michelle S 3 Sophia 4 Lisa 5 Sara 6 Nancy 7 Janet 8 Me

Am I forgetting anyone who has already signed up? I hope not! 

Who else is riding? :) 

I am thinking right now about trying to finish cards (so for Sara, Nancy, and Janet among those signed up so far) the rest of this year and then completely starting fresh with cards in 2018. How does that sound? Maybe we can even try to incorporate birthdays somehow. :)

I am letting this train pass by and will just WAVE at you all as I will be gone to MD for 6 weeks with new baby girl coming.  Big brother Chase will turn 2 just days before the scheduled c-section so we all are coming to celebrate as he turns 2.

Melissa, is in seat # 9 :)

I am glad Michelle and Sophia about the birthdays :) I think that will be fun and something we have also talked about before. I think I have everyone's birthdays on this train list, except yours, Nancy. P.S. To anyone new or old, not confortable sharing your birthday or if you'd prefer that not to be a componet or consideration of your train, please know that is A-Ok. We can also do half or unbirthdays :D 

Jeanne, God Bless all your grandchildren. I am so happy you will get to spend all that time with them. We will wave back to you!

I want to sit beside of Amy at some point she is so much fun lol. Perhaps we can ride in the luggage compartment together and read books, steal hot chocolate from the food cart throw a few crumbs at everyones heads as we wait for our turns lol.

 

Mona have you considered some kind of blast list to let previous riders know that the train is taking riders? I would have missed the train if I hadnt have come to see on impulse. Even though I see we have until the 2nd of August.

You know how much my daughter enjoys the train Mona, tsk tsk. lol

10 Jennifer, there is always a seat for you :)

I agree, #11 Kimmy! Lol! I still do not know how to send a blast PM. A couple friends on here kindly gave me directions and alas it does not work for me :( If everyone will PM me their email I can do it that way each time we have a sign up or if one of you who knows how could do so that would be awesome. I'd be happy to tell you regular riders. Thanks.

I've never done this before, but you said you'd take new travelers, so is there still room for a newbie in this round? If not, please add me to the wait list for the next train. Stickers are so cheerful and I'm thinking I could use the inspiration to make the cards I send a little more cheery when I send them out. A little more happy mail is good for the soul! laugh
