Be sure to love yourself today. And yes, I'm the world's oldest BTS fan. πŸ’œ

Oct 2020: I broke my right arm and shoulder, so I'm on swapping hiatus.

I'm here to help keep snail-mail alive. I've "met" some wonderful people here and consider them friends. With that said, I try to put a bit of care and thought into swaps and encourage the same.

I send on time and rate the same day swaps are picked up from the post office. As far as hearts go, I give them for TPG: thoughtfulness (yours), presentation (yours), and giddiness (mine). I don't need extras with swaps since I'm in a constant state of downsizing. I prefer quality over quantity. But if I send you extras, it's because I have something I think you can use (i.e., you're helping me downsize). I love decorated envies, especially when they feature your artwork.

Note: I'm allergic to cigar/ette smoke, and anything dusty gets me sneezing, too. So please don't send smoke or dust my way.

Thinking of you....

BusyB on Oct 12, 2020:

I'm so sorry to hear about your broken bones! Ouch! Stay healthy and be sure you power through any of your PT. My husband got attacked on the commute home from work 5 years ago next month and got a broken shoulder. Therapy for a year. No 'frozen shoulder here! His friend from high school is a nurse and encouraged him to always do his PT. Hugs, Bonnie

Thank you for the letter for ww July. I will retrograde the advice of fellow swappers and relax,lol. What we do in the shadows is my favorite too! We even named 2 crows in yard Nadia and Lazlo. I adore Matt Berry. I think I need to give kpop a listen since I keep hearing about it. Thanks again.
