Favorite Music

Almost any music affects me! I sing in the shower and whenever I can! Always singing inmy head! All kinds of phrases of songs come from the back of my brain during any conversation and are often not as funny or appropriate as I think they are or should be. Some people just don't get it! I do usually burst out with titles and tunes when things remind me of them! There is a bit of a problem, apparently I don't have the voice I imagine is coming from insides me! ( so I have been told). Oldies, folk rock, big band and current pop and some country are favorites. Not a great fan of Miley Cyrus or other twanging music. Love old time radio classics! The shows of the 40s& the 50's entertain me in the wee hours of the morning. I will tell you Pandd will change the channel or turn off the radio if I am too boisterous!😒

Favorite Books

When Walden Books and Barnes and Noble came to town, I devoured book ownership! I had been a great attendee of library readings, book signings and discussion groups. Suddenly I didn't care what everyone else was reading and shortly thereafter, before I knew it I had 10 bookcases full of a variety of books of every category (current theme phase) that I could peruse at my leisure. 3 years later, I changed residences and for the last four years, I have been a Kindle Konvert! The internet and my Ipad have decluttered my living arrangements! I am down to one bookcase of favorites including my high school yearbooks that are often searched through when Facebook classmates contact me, and I am curious to see the resemblances of the now and then. We listen to audio books when in the car or studio. I just learned out how to play the kindle/ iPad on the car radio. I am excited! I am currently in a mystery phase! I enjoy the adventures of women who solve mysteries. I think this is because I read the Nancy Drew mysteries over and over. I wanted to grow up and be a grown up Nancy Drew! We listen to books on tape when we drive from Fla to Ill.

Favorite Movies

Went to see The new Jk Rowling movie. It is great and I want to see it again ! We don't go to the movies very often and this is worth the high price of movie tickets. I do admit that I like chick flicks and light hearted movies that are entertaining because I think that's what a movie should be! I do like mysteries, drama and exciting/thrillers--just not a whole lot of gore, blood and guts. We have been watching a lot of oldies on the tube, and enjoying them as if I'd never seen them! I love the old black and white movies, esp. the musicals and detective movies like The Falcon and Charlie Chan series. They have only one dimension but the music and what I call "extreme " acting are so different from today.

Favorite Television

TV has become a good part of my life and it often fills enjoyable few hours due to the ability to tape and view as I wish ! I finished watching all the Downton Abby series and now that I am"current". Looking forward to the new season starting. I just watched a Orange is the new Black marathon. It has reinforced the life plan to never do anything that could put me in jail or prison. It did remind me of working though. We also had quite a cast of colorful characters. Maybe not criminals, but, who knows what they did in their off hours. Like I said, colorful characters whom I believe could do about anything. I have to talk Pat (pandD) into watching it. She'll recognize the similarities to some of my former coworkers! Its hard to watch just one episode of a series, when you get used to watching a bunch in a row. I think I'll hold back and tape some shows for a few weeks so I can watch two or three at a time.. I wish I had more time. I'd like to check out some of the shows I see on other swappers profiles. This is how I found out about Orange..... And Downton too. I am glad that I did. Thanks swappers! Suggestions are always welcome!

I like detective type shows. Tom selleck is still hot on Blue Bloods, love Elementary, the PBS series Sherlock Holmes NCIS and CSI. Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, Rizoli and isles, The Closer, etc. just watched the Black Box and haven't made a decision yet. I think I'll watch it a couple of more times. Decided I like it!

On the lighter side, I love love love Mike and Molly, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family. There just are not enough comedies on TV. Who's line is it is? Is back on! I am so glad. It is really funny. If anyone has suggestions of good funny shows I am open to suggestions.

We watch a lot of DIY, house stuff, food channel and Dance Moms, sometimes we get a lot more info than we need about people, but it is interesting.,

Likes/& not crazy for

I love ATC's! Creating them is so much fun but the best part is getting mail from the creative crafters around the globe! I do wish that people would follow through on rating ( and some sending). Right now I have over 20 in my Sent that I would like to archive!

LOVE: Shopping, finding a bargain and seeing what's out there! I also like to snoop and see what other people are buying. It's interesting in a department store or in the grocery store to see what they are going to cook! I also look at what people are eating in restaurants ! I might want to try whatever their eating! Pat reminds me when I am staring, usually I am daydreaming or planning something. I am in some zone! Also love:

plain teas. Green, black, constant comment, mint, orange pekoe, not fruity.

Tinkerbell and fairies, gnomes and leprechauns

Lemons and most fruit

hard candy,lemon drops and butterscotch/carmel

Comment: Thanks for the great ATCs 😋 The Monet notecard was awesome as well ❤️ I went to the beach the weekend before last for a friend's birthday and a had a great time. Her 4 year old daughter made sand angels and was covered in sand. The sunset 🌅 was beautiful. Have a great day, Nathan
Response: I am so glad you liked everything. I'm crazy about the beach and sunshine and just watching the waves and the skyline and the sunsets and shells and seaweed and fish and floating, snorkeling and sand castles , beach toys, blankets, umbrellas and cabanas. I hate using sunscreen but it is a must. I've had skin cancers and being a freckle faced redhead, I've had my shares of burns. Now I add to my list long sleeve spf shirt, long skirt and floppy hat. I still love the beach. Thanks for the ❤️and for being my partner and the kind words, and allowing me to share my beaching fun!
