Mail from January 28, 2019:
Mr. Bill Porter of The Olathe Poste is a wonderful correspondent. He always takes the time to write a friendly letter. We like to share about our mutual hobby - philately!
Bill sent an original add & pass, complete with original watercolor work. He said of my middle initial, “the B stands for Beautiful !” Haha...quite the charmer!
Thanks for the mail!
What a pleasant surprise to receive mail this summer from W.C. "Bill" Porter - longtime artist, photographer, outdoor enthusiast and owner of the "eclectic enterprise of WCP-NM.COM, Inc.
Bill decided to send mail my way when he noticed me on the IUOMA-Ning site back in June. In his letter to me, he gives me a "BIG atta girl for still having" my stamp album from childhood (I mention the stamp album in my IUOMA profile). Bill goes on to ask me about my philatelic endeavors - clubs, organizations? types of stamps I collect? participation in any global stamp exchanges? He also shares his philatelic interests with me.
Bill was kind to send some stamps my way (postage, artistamps, international local post). I especially love the following:
June's mail also includes a flyer about stamp collecting. Gotta love the phrase - "KEEP PHILATELY PHUN!" The envelope art - original watercolor art by Bill - features a Southwest mountain.
July came and went, and August brought more mail from Mr. Porter - this time in the form of a post card. Bill, again, adorns his correspondence with an original watercolor piece. Cool RAY JOHNSON (Ray Who?) Bunny Stamp!!
Now that I've told you about the mail I received, let me share with you some information about Bill's business. Bill and his wife Kathy operate their subsidiary enterprises out of Olathe CO. WCP-NM.COM, Inc. is comprised of the following businesses:
Looking forward to corresponding with Bill Porter! Thanks WCP!
