About Me

JUST HAD TO ADD THIS: ARTS AND CRAFTS KEEP YOU SANE. (From my Mary Engelbreit desk calendar for 29 Jan. Soooo true!) Getting back to reality, I just want to remind everyone again that all our mail, even things for right here in town, now goes to Phoenix for sorting, so even if I take it to the PO a day or two early it may still be delayed and not have the correct postmark. Wish that weren't the case, but we have no control over the postal authorities. Guess we are lucky to still have it! Now back to the normal profile stuff -- Mother of 4 plus a "courtesy daughter", grandmother of 10 (the oldest one now wives and works in Boise, ID, and the youngest is now 5 and started kindergarten this year). I am a life member of Girl Scouts of the USA, as is my husband. I'm a retired teacher, married for 52 years to a wonderful man, call Alaska home (Univ. of AK/Fairbanks, '67). Currently living in Arizona, active in my church and a little with Girl Scouts although I no longer have a troop. Love to read, do counted cross-stitch, and travel. Please note this says "living" in AZ, not "loving" AZ. No offense to true Arizonans -- there is a lot to enjoy in Arizona with great people and fun things to do -- but it's just too hot here for someone who prefers -22 degrees!

Favorite Music

Almost anything except heavy metal. Especially love Kathy Troccoli, Babie Mason, Point of Grace, and the Baroque period in classical music. And the Eagles!

Favorite Movies

Fried Green Tomatoes, The Silence of the Lambs, Driving Miss Daisy, and Day of the Triffids -- and most of the Disney classic animation! And I am now adding I Am Legend, thanks to a grandson who said we had to see it. And Wild Wild West -- I think maybe I have become a Will Smith fan!

Favorite Television

All the Law & Order and CSI shows, NCIS and the spin-offs, although the original is still the best. And Rizzoli and Iles, which I will hate to see end, and Castle -- until it ended! and Wheel of Fortune! And we just discovered The Good Doctor, and are waiting for This Is Us to return.

Favorite Crafts

Mostly cross-stitch, although a slight vision problem since my stroke makes that a little more difficult. I enjoy ATC's and try to use "leftovers" to create 3-D effects. I also like zentangles, and often make up my own patterns. Also some plastic canvas work, and painting murals on walls, especially for the grandchildren. I prefer "cool" colors, esp. greens and blues. I don't really like mustard tones (lived with too much of it growing up as my mother really liked them!)

About Me

One additional note! My first name seems to pose a problem for some partners, so I just want to point out that it is spelled correctly when it comes up with my address. It is Pamelia, with an "i" before the last "a" and is pronounced so as to rhyme with Amelia. I really love it because I was named for my grandmother, whom I adored, and it means a lot to me, so many thanks to all those who have spelled it correctly!

About Me

Also -- I have received several invitations to groups, which I do appreciate, but my life is simply too unpredictable, and my likes too eclectic, for me to ever want to participate in a group. I just am not organized enough! So thanks anyway, but my answer will always be no thanks.

About Me

Finally, I have now had my last visit with Oncology at the Mayo Clinic, and they said don't come back -- you may now call yourself a survivor! I celebrated my first year cancer free with a butterfly tattoo -- butterflies symbolize resurrection! -- but I don't plan on adding another one. I am just basking in the thought that I have made it through. I really appreciate all the fellow swappers who sent me support and encouraging thoughts during the treatment process, as well as those who have continued to do so after reading my profile. And for everyone out there, a piece of relevant advice: GET YOUR MAMMOGRAMS!!! I am definite proof that early detection not only improves the survival rate, but it can make the treatment much less difficult! Take care of yourselves -- I hope to swap with many more of you in the future!

About Me

One last note for the Hot Drink and a Note Swap -- I drink just about anything except chai tea, and I love to try new things. I am looking forward to seeing what comes!

Comment: Ciao Pamelia! Thank you for your postcard, it's very interesting. I've never seen the movie about Ok Corral, I think here in Italy is not much famous. But I know the story and I've always seen quotes about it. I remember when I was a child I saw one in the Peanuts comics. :D The stamps are marvelous!
Response: so glad you liked it! The movie is not new, so I am not surprised you do not know it. Knowing the story is good. thanks for the heart. Mi piace molto. Ciao!

Hey, I really received your address in the swap! :D I'll send the recipe at the weekend :)

And I'm happy that you both found that song interesting :)

Hi Pamelia!

You're one of my partners for the "What's in a name? PC Swap" and I wanted to comment on your profile because you call Alaska home. :) I was born, raised, and currently live in Alaska. Anchorage to be exact. I adore it here and like you, I prefer the cold weather! My dad actually lives in Arizona.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi in a comment since my postcard only has so much space, haha.

I love the name Pamelia, by the way. I don't think I've ever heard it pronounced the way you described before.

Happy swapping and hugs from Alaska! :)

Guess what we do have light houses in AZ, on Lake Havasu. They are building smaller ones. Now the big question is: Can we get some postcards of them.
