photo STICKER TRAIN FOR PBS_zps4pjajh2u.png

Welcome aboard to all newcomers and continuous riders upon the one and only Sticker Train! (We need a jingle, anyone :)? To those of you who have ridden and participated in the other three trains, hug and my sincere thanks for making them fun and also a way for us to grow more as friends while trading stickers.

Rebecca, I hope this is okay with you, your explanation to someone on how Train 3 worked was awesome. Here it is: "One person sends stickers to someone else, they take a few sheets and contribute about the same amount then send it on to the next person. At the end, one person gets a card and a bunch of stickers. Then that person would start a new train."

For Sticker Train 3, I started a card for our friend Larkspur Jane (LJ). She is no longer sadly on PBS but sure appreciated all of your kind greetings. Aboard that Train, was a card I had gotten for LJ and written a message to her on along with a printout of some extra greeting from those of you who were so gracious to PM me a message for her. We had a route planned out from one person to the next and it worked as Rebecca described above, with each person also signing the card for LJ. LJ received the train today, yay and enjoyed going through it and appreciated all her greetings too. Thank you all again for doing that for her.

LJ has also chosen the stickers she wants to keep. The remainder will indeed be aboard Train 4. This way stickers keep circulating and we all get to see them. For example. Sandy T and I have not seen Train 3 since it began in the Spring. Larkspur Jane will make or buy a card for Train 4's card recipient. That person will be chosen from among riders who have not yet received a card and by whatever means (maybe putting all our names in  a Santa hat) she chooses :) I will post once she has chosen and we will plan our Train 4's route and go from there.

Confirmed passengers on Train 4 are the following: Sandy T, Kim B, Rebecca M, Lisa D, Kathy B, Larkspur Jane and me.

Calling Train 3 Riders: Irene, Kimmy, and Monica. All of you ladies are welcome on Train 4, of course, just let me know. Also to Yvonne, I believe at one time you wanted to come aboard, please let me know that too. Thank you.

Again newcomers and continuous riders, all are welcome as are questions and suggestions! We want this to be fun for all.

Please post on here or PM me if you want to join us for Train 4 by Thursday, August 20th (I did just edit this to give the train a quicker starting time)

On Friday, I will let Larkspur Jane know who the riders are and she will be able to get going on the card. Also once we know who the card is for, if any of you (thank you Sophia for wanting to do this :) would like to PM me a greeting for that person (and not do the train) that would be wonderful and I thank you.

I wish all of you a wonderful evening. Keep Cool out there and God Bless You.

I will post on here the stops and also PM each of you who to send the train to when you get it. Thanks for coming aboard and happy sticker-ing to all!

My apologies to all for posting in the Train 3 Thread about this our current train 4. I was so sticker train excited, I didn't even realize where I was posting! Please do keep all Train 4 posts in this thread (to hopefully prevent me from being more confuzzled :P)

I did start to say in the other thread, that Larkspur Jane, chose me as the next card recipient. I truly am touched and thank you lovely ladies in advance for my card. It will mean so much to me to get a card with messages from all of you. :) Larkspur Jane said she will work on the card this weekend. I will let all of you know when the train has departed her station. I will also PM each of you who to mail the package off too. Lol, Sandy, we know, you will be the person mailing it to me, so this Train 4 will start more East which is cool, something different :)

From our other Trains: All types of stickers are welcome. I personally prefer no smelly (scratch n sniff or stinky, as they are sometimes called) stickers simply because they have a way of making everything else included in the package smell! I loved them as a kid not so much now. I also am aware some folks like me have the smoke free book RC on their conditions. To me that is similar to the stinky stickers on aboard our train as some riders may have smell allergies. That said, should you have some super duper stinky stickers that are too cheerful to not share, of course, they are welcome, please know that. This is not at all intended to be about me. It is for everyone :)

Hug to each of you and https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/a8/9a/65/a89a65b987d8c990e873d02252645779.jpg

Choo Choo, and chugga chugga, too. Sticker Train 4 is ready to go. Larkspur Jane so kindly told me she finished my card and has the package ready to mail. She even figured out the route for me. I told her I do best figuring out where things are at Disneyland not so much on an actual map :D Anyway, here is our Train 4 route in order of stops.

Larkspur Jane is our Train's Engineer (is that right)?
Sophia
Kim
Kathy
Lisa
Rebecca
Yvonne
Issa
Sandy
Mona

Please mail the train onward to the person whose name is below you on this list. I will PM each of you that person's address. I know it may be a while between stops so feel free to ask again :) Issa, btw, is someone I met on Good Reads who did one of the earlier trains. Please do let us know on here when you both receive and have mailed off the train. This just helps keep us all up to date and I hope makes the riding experience more "live" for everyone and something we are sharing together. It is all of you, lovely ladies, who make it possible! Oh and definitely please share if you would what stickers you have chosen. I am an all-around sticker fan and it is fun to hear about our train's cargo :) As a reminder, feel free always to take as many stickers as you like, well maybe not the entire train but you know :D. Then, contribute back aboard however many half and/or full sheets you are able to. There is for sure no you take 3 full sheets must put back 3 full sheets rule. Our train  runs by friends on love and is all for fun.

Hugs to all and Sandy? Choo Choo!!! Here Comes sticker Train 4! ETA: Thank you all in advance for my greetings. I am so excited to get the card.

First off, Kim, I hope you did have fun with the train, thank you for mailing it on, too. That was sure nice of your mom to also add to it! Please tell her thank you :) Sophia, thanks also to you for mailing it onward.

Yikes, I'm sure sorry about the cost everyone. :( I had heard the train was packed a while back and I guess it must be so. Way back when we did the first train, I remember we talked about briefly what to do with excess stickers at the end of a route. We ended up carrying over cargo from previous trains to the newest ones so that everyone could see more of the stickers. Should we rethink that? I promise I never intended for this adventure to be costly. I would feel awful if anyone was unable to join in because of cost and actually that person could easily be me. Going on $4 for postage X so many trains adds up.

I do donate stickers to my church and in fact brought some more today for the preschoolers and/or children's ministry. I am also hoping to participate in Trunk or Treat this year at church and if so would definitely give out stickers :) If all of you want, when I do get the train, I will donate the majority to church and we could literally be beginning more over? I This train will actually be making a full circle sort of because I did start the train for LarkspurJane. So I had not seen our trains since last spring.

I just want all of you to be able to be a train card recipient! PLEASE, always, hop right aboard with an idea, I pray all of you by now know these trains are not about me but to spread cheer amongst all riders and build friendships :) I thank you for that and the fun of this. Let's try and save on fuel costs! :)

Hugs and Good Night to all!
