Retirement Cards

We love to stay in touch with the people that we meet on the road. What do we use? Retirement cards and our website.

We had run out of our first set of retirement cards. We had ordered them from MOO in July of 2018.

We are now on our second run of retirement cards. They came in yesterday.

This was release one:

And our newest release:

We decided that we should include a picture of ourselves on the card. And, perhaps in a future release, a picture of ourselves with Tabby, our golden retriever.

The first card featured a photo of our coach at Petoskey Motorcoach Resort which is now operating as Petoskey RV Resort.

The new card features a photo of our coach at Myakka River Motorcoach Resort. We do miss that place! The photo of us is the same one that we use on our website. This was a photo taken at a family wedding in Venice, Florida in 2015.

The people we hope to stay connected with will usually receive a card from us and, if appropriate, we send them an invitation to join the mailing list on our website. That requires an email address. And, sadly, the folks that agree to joining our mailing list receive a daily email from yours truly.

Except on weekends. Thank heavens for small mercies.

We get our retirement cards from MOO. Great service and quality.

Our website runs WordPress self-hosted at Siteground. They run over 2 million domains and they do an awesome job for us.

A few ways that have allowed us to stay in touch with our friends and family as we travel.

Retirement Cards

The retirement cards were delivered today. The folks at Moo did an amazing job with our order and such a wonderful unboxing experience.

We ordered the cards on 32 pt Mohawk Superfine stock. Beautifully textured. We added a blue seam colour that matches the blue sky of the picture of our coach.

I have redacted our telephone numbers on the pictures below. We love email through the Internet. Direct calls? Well, let’s say we love them only if we hand out a card directly.

Friends that we had made at Hearthside Grove last year gave us this idea to carry retirement cards — thanks Gary and Suzan. We now have our very own cards to hand out.

Another way we hope to keep in touch with the people we will meet on our travels.
