About Me

Hello hello!

I live in a small town in Washington state, USA (the "other" Washington, ha ha). Itโ€™s a beautiful place! Lots of mountains and forests with many trails. I'm a destination hiker. I look for waterfalls, rivers, and lakes that I can hike to. I rarely do the same hike twice, except for a few favorites. I also look for caves, and beaches that you have to hike to get to.

I've loved writing letters ever since I was a kid, so finding Swap-Bot was pretty exciting. For anybody who's old enough to remember the personal ads in the back of magazines, that's where I found my first pen pals. During the pandemic I've acquired several dozen pen pals in assisted living facilities around the country, and it's a real hoot getting to know them through letters. They are rich with life experiences, and have a lot to share! I'm hoping once it's safe to travel again, that I'll be able to meet some of them in person.

My other hobbies are origami, watercolor painting, mini-bookmaking, any kind of papercraft, coloring, and playing my ukulele. Old-time fiddle tunes, or jugband songs from the 1920-1930s are my favorites to play and sing. I also play the piano, and for that instrument, classical music is my favorite, especially sonatinas and waltzes. I can have the most stressful day ever, and if I sit down at the piano and play a classical piece for even just five minutes, all the negative energy vanishes instantly. I can literally feel it flow out of my body. I close my eyes and I smile big.

I enjoy reading, a lot! It's a great way to go someplace when you have to stay home. I mostly read historical fiction, but occasionally a good psychological thriller finds its way into my library bag. As well as non-fiction war stories.

I'm also an avid contra dancer (pre-covid). If you don't know what contra dancing is, Google "Great Bear Groove - Benton's Hallucinations" on YouTube. This is one of my favorite bands to dance to, and this video is from a 3 day dance camp that they host every year. I try to do a dance camp about every 6 weeks, on top of our weekly local dances. No partner needed, everybody dances with everybody. It's high energy, a good workout, and tons of fun!! Everybody's always smiling! It's a great way to cast aside anything that's bothering you, and escape to a very lovely place, at least for a little while. It will probably be the first thing I do once we're all vaccinated :-)

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful selection of playing cards. I love them all, especially the pizza. I have been buying a few decks of cards that are not the regular rectangle shape and been waiting to see if anyone puts up a swap for them. I may have to do one myself.
Response: A shape playing card swap would be awesome! Do it! :-)

Comment: What a fascinating letter and photos! I have never heard about wooden money as legal tender and am amazed that the town started reissuing it last year. Our historical society has a printing press used by Benjamin Franklin's brother, but it certainly didn't print wood. Thank you so much for the souvenier dollar as well -- I absolutely love everything. Thank you!!
Response: Iโ€™m glad you enjoyed it :-)
