About Me

Hello & welcome to my little cubby here at Swap "Bot. I hope you are enjoying it here as much as I am. My name is Carol & I am a 52 year old female, widowed, live alone; well sort of, I do have 2 dogs and one cat who are great companions. I love making new friends and since I live in a rural area, the internet is my best avenue to meet and make new friends. As far as I am concerned, you can never have too many friends and here at Swap Bot, I have "met"some great people who I consider friends and I'm so grateful to Swap Bot for this wonderful opportunity. Thank you for reading my profile, and I look forward to swapping with you soon! Happy Swapping to all, and to all a good time!!

Favorite Music

Likes: Music is like therapy for me. It lifts me up when I am down; helps me really bust a move (lol) when I want to do a really deep down, spotless cleaning of my house & just turn it on up. My favorites are: Dance music (disco & swing) as well as oldies but really love just about all, except for rap. Favorite groups/artists: The BeeGees, Olivia Newton John, The Eagles, The Beatles, Rod Stewart & believe it or not, I think Andrea Borcelli has a beautiful, magical voice.

Favorite Books

Oh, I love to read but don't do as much of it lately. My favorite books to read are true crime, whodunnit type books, as well as mysteries, autobiographies, biographies, DIY books and since my dear husband passed away back in 1999, I have read many books about the afterlife, communicating with those who have passed on and near death experiences. I can't really name a particular author that stands out as a favorite, but do enjoy reading just about anything, except maybe gory, creepy stories.

Favorite Movies

Hmmm, how I miss going out to the movies...a favorite past time. These days, I wait for a movie I would like to see to come out on video and either rent it or sometimes I will buy with the hope of passing it on to someone else who can enjoy it, and they too, can pass it along. There are just SO many movies that I love, but my two all time favorites that I could watch over and over again are Dirty Dancing and Grease. Other favorites include The Notebook, A Christmas Story,

Colors, foods, animals

Things I like are: Color - pastels are my favorite, blue, lavender, pink, yellow.

Foods: I LOVE food, lol, and believe me, it shows. Anyway, favorite foods are: pizza (NY style), almost any type of Italian cuisine particularly lasagna; some Mexican food.;

I absolutely love animals, particularly dogs and cats, but I love to look out my window and see deer,lots of hummingbirds in the Summer who will fly almost right into my face if their feeders are not full enough or not full enough for them anyway, lol; wild turkeys, squirrels, the occasional fox and at night, I can hear the coyotes howl.

Likes/enjoy: watching the sunset from the beach or on top of the mountains, being inside cozy warm by the fireplace during a snow storm/blizzard; baking and some cooking. One of my very favorite things to do is play with my 2 dogs and my kitty. They are such great companions and the light of my life

I LOVE the smell of clothes/linens after they are brought in from hanging on the clothesline...mmmmmm. LOVE getting mail from new friends and I just wish I was more of a creative person because I would really like to join swaps here based on artistic or creative ability but I'm still willing to learn and if I do, I know I have come to the right place! Enjoy collecting postcards from anywhere and everywhere and that is mostly what I swap here on the Bot.

Postcard Preferences

Since I join almost exclusively postcard swaps, I thought I should add some postcards wishes. Please don't worry or give it a second thought, though if you don't have any of the postcards listed, since I really love receiving postcards and am enjoying adding to my collection.

Postcards I like to receive most:

Anything vintage in nature (except for the dislikes listed below)

Nature of any kind: Mountains, lakes or any body of water; snowy scenes & autumn scenes such as colorful leaves, pumpkins, scarecrows; flowers, tall pine trees, rainbows, waterfalls, wild animals & domestic animals (dogs & cats, in particular) :)

Lighthouses, birds, especially hummingbirds, cardinals & owls, hoot, hoot!; Hot air balloons; sunsets & sunrises especially over water; beaches, palm trees, butterflies.

Those are my most favorite, but I really do like anything, and am very easy to please. It's just fun to see how many different postcards I can collect, and my collection is definitely growing, thanks to the many wonderful swap partners I have had so far.

Postcards I would NOT like to receive: Spiders, snakes, postcards with primarily black in color; prefer nothing religious as the front of the card, but if you wish to write a religious scripture or verse you would like to share within the message part of the card, I have no problem with that.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. That's all I can think of at this time, but who knows? I may add on in the future. I'm not picky at all, and I don't want any future swap partner to worry about not having a post card within my likes. It just means a lot to me that you took the time to read my profile to get some idea of my likes. Happy Swapping to you all! :)

Hi Carol! Thanks for your "hi" note. I think of you often and miss you. Take care of yourself!

Thank you for the kind words about my new fur baby. I just love dachshunds too. She is a real handful and we have decided she will be our last puppy. When she passes and we look for another dog it will be an adult. Hopefully that will not be for a very long time though. We only had our last dog for 8 1/2 years, not nearly long enough. I hope your summer is going well. The next time you do a swap, give me a shout. I'll sign up, I love zazzle postcards. (and CafePress too)

Hi Carol, thanks for the adorable Zazzle post card with the baby raccoons. I didn't even know what "zazzle" postcards were- I certainly don't see why there would be any fuss over them, they are very nice!

Thank you so much for the lovely words you left on my profile. I appreciate your kindness to me and it's lovely to make your acquaintance. :) I see we do have some things in common...maybe we can do a private swap some time. :)

I AM having a lovely spring, thank you, and I hope you are doing the same. :)

Thank you for the kind thoughts in your rating! Things are ok here but up north is a mess. It is so nice of you to ask.
