About Me

PLEASE NOTE: If I mark a swap as being sent and that day has no mail delivery, it's because I put it in a USPS box by our mail room (which is just down the hall from me).

If it's not in the box by the time the mail comes, it doesn't get picked up till the next day so when I put a letter in the box in the evening or on the weekend and it shows marked as being sent on a Sunday or the prior day is marked sent and the postmark shows the following day, this is why ...

I mark sent as soon it goes into our USPS box because I'm afraid if I didn't, that I'd totally forget and wouldn't mark it sent at all. Old age? Perhaps! lol


For at least the past 6 months (and probably longer than that too but I didn't check as carefully as I do now) ... I seem to end up with quite a few people who do not feel it's important to rate the swaps and then I have to message them and then HOPE that they'll rate me. There have been some who have not even after I messaged them.

If this keeps up, I am tired of having to write and ask (beg?) for a rating and after a certain period of time, I'm just going to start listing non-raters on my profile. There's a rating system for a reason and I thought it was a requirement to do so.

At the same time, any non-raters who do get listed will not be eligible to join my swaps. If I do get them as a partner in a swap that I join then all I can do is hope that they'll rate me and if they do, then I'll remove their name from the non-raters list. I hate to do it but being rated is important to me and I imagine it is to the person who isn't rating but only if they don't get rated themselves I think is when they care about it - not when they won't rate others swaps.

Hi! My name is Debi and am a 67 year old Christian woman and I would love to hear from anyone who was born on that exact same day, which is May 8, 1956. I've looked for years but as of yet have not found anyone on that exact day.

A bit about me, I'm divorced, have 2 kids who are grown and on their own and also have 7 grand-kids and am a GREAT-Grandma to Jax and Kayden, Aimee (age 4) and baby Madilynn was born @ 12:06 a.m., Oct. 25, 2018. Also in August of 2022, I got 2 more great-greatchildren ... Jerime Levi was born the first week in August (my grandson, Levi's baby) and the 3rd week, Levi's sister, Lacey had her baby and the baby's name is Lilly.

Update: As for September 15, 2023 I now have 7 great-grandchildren. My granddaughter Lacey had a baby girl named Delainie Sage. πŸ˜€

Besides my kids and grand-kids, I have a very spoiled cat named Kyla, who turned 11 on July 22nd (2021) - Yep, that]'s her in the picture below!

[Update: I had to have Kyla put to sleep on Friday, April 28th, 2023 and can tell you that it was the hardest thing I have EVER had to do.] At this time [5/3/2023], I am still feeling heartbroken and lost without her here but do know that eventually I'll be okay again. For now though, it isn't easy. 😒


My Likes & Dislikes

  • Postcards [or pictures] of carousels

  • I would love to be able to get a postcard from a plantation house from the south. I fell in love with Tara when I read and then watched "Gone With the Wind" and would love postcards from that type of house - the white pillars and well, a plantation house.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!


  • Anything with skulls

  • Anything dark or evil

  • No adult themes

  • I absolutely hate swearing so please, if you read this before you send a swap to me, PLEASE leave out the swear words. I can guarantee that if they are in a swap and sent to me, you will NOT get a heart.

  • Terrible handwriting to the point that I have to struggle to read the letter and a good part of the time, I can't make it all out no matter how hard I try. VERY frustrating!

Hate to do it, but ...


I have put off doing this for a VERY long time but finally it's come to the point that some people just ignore your messages asking them to rate you and well, I've had enough.

I still haven't been rated for this swap:

@Fabriqueen - "Email swap #1 - coronavirus"


@Fabriqueen - Postcards With a Prompt #123 - US Only (Note: Diane did finally rate me for this swap. The swaps send-by date was MARCH 13, 2021 and was rated on MAY 27, 2021.


Comment: Thank you
Response: And I say ... Thank YOU! πŸ˜€ I so appreciate the quick rating. (I'm still working on your e-mail letter ... I have a feeling it's gonna end up being a super long one by the time I'm done!) πŸ’•

Comment: Thanks for the Audrey Hepburn postcard - so elegant! Also enjoyed your trivia facts - who knew a lightning bolt could toast 100,000 slices of bread? Not me!
Response: I didn't know that either until this swap! lol I'm glad that you liked the card and the trivia facts. Thanks so much for joining my swap and for the rating and the heart ... I appreciate ya! 🌹🌹🌹
Comment: I loved reading about your babies. My Sati crossed the rainbow bridge in 2020 and it was the most awful I've ever felt. But I try to remember that she's not in pain anymore and has all treats and toys she wants. Maybe they are all playing together!
Response: Sherra, thanks so much for the rating and for the heart ... it's so hard to love them so much and then lose them and I know you know what I mean. That's a lovely idea that Sati and Kyla might be playing together (with lots of treats and toys!) (Hugs)

MeetSarah87 rated for OHS - List #1 on Sep 25, 2023
Comment: Thank you for sharing your lists. I also love chai tea and butterscotch latte sounds yummy too. Pizza is always a good choice. The help was a very good book. I have visited several castles (you find them in every European country) and it is always nice. Would love to visit Israel too.
Response: Thanks so much for the rating and the heart. How awesome that you've gotten to visit some castles ... that's been my dream for a long time (but the main problem is that I have no vehicle and no way to get anywhere!) Maybe someday ... I'm hoping so anyhow. πŸ˜€

Cindymt rated for (E-mail Swap) LIST 20 TRIVIA FACTS on Sep 24, 2023
Comment: Thanks for hosting and for sharing! I knew a few of those facts but I think my favorite new fact I learned was that J was supposed to be the last letter of the alphabet. That would confuse my kindergarten students! Ha-ha!

Comment: Thank you for your list. I watch all but 3. Interesting fact-I went into labor with my son while watching Family Affair. LOL!
Response: That is funny about you going into labor while watching that show! As for myself, with my two kids I had C-sections and didn't go into labor with my son at all and with my daughter, I did and at the time I was cooking a pot pie (and I really wanted it at the time!) but never got to eat it 'cuz I went to the hospital. πŸ˜‚

Happy Birthday God bless you always!

MichelleKemper on Mar 11, 2023:

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Blessings, Michelle

porpie5 on Mar 6, 2023:

Do not fear, for I am with you;

I will strengthen you; I will surely help you;

Isaiah 41:10

rarjones on Mar 6, 2023:

EL ROI [el-roh-ee]: "God of Seeing" (Genesis 16:13) – the name ascribed to God by Hagar, alone and desperate in the wilderness after being driven out by Sarah (Genesis 16:1-14). She realized that El Roi saw her in her distress and testified that He is a God who lives and sees all.

And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Matthew 10:30
