About Me

New Message - August 17, 2018

I am having problems again with my back. I will be having a procedure on Monday, August 23rd. It is the same as before and it worked untilnow. . They discovered a cyst on my lower spine pressing against a nerve which was causing all the pain. and said that they were not able to remove it. Your patience in not rating a negative scores was greatly appreciated. Look forward to swapping with all again. Linda


Hobbies I have a love for hobbies of all sorts of things to make them (ribbons, embelishments, buttons, etc), family, my daughter, anything Disney, my Westie Terrier - Maggie (she is in doggie heaven), my grandpuppies (German Shepherds bigger than me!), lighthouses, collecting (beanies, pezzes, ornaments, lighthouses, grandfather clocks) and shopping at Hallmark! Simple things I like to receive are: sugar free candy/chocolate, crafty things, homemade cards to send myself, trinkets.

I also am collecting postcards, love all kinds, but my favorites are maps and lighthouses. I have a map card from all 50 states, however, I found that there are more than one kind. I would love to get map postcards from other countries and cities. I also collect lighthouses. I have a small collection of vintage postcards (1980's, if you can call them vintage).

I also love Disney and touristy type postcards. .

I need maps from most foreign countries. I also would like to collect all Capitals

Unless the swap requires ad or homemade postcards, please do not send them since I do not collect them.

If the swap allows a preference on naked or in an envelope, I would prefer mine unwritten and in an envelope. Thanks in advance.

Comment: Sedona looks lovely. So many places to explore. I have just come back from Caloundra which is a 2 hour flight from where I live. It was way too hot for my liking but now we are back home it is nice and cold

Comment: Thanks for the pcs. Whaler's village must be new (under 25 years). I don't remember it when I was there. I think St Augustine lighthouse is the most famous. I have several cards, but not this one. I guess that means I have a collection if I have 3 or more. LOL.

Comment: Thank you for this perrectly adorable postcard! We have 6 cats. Well, 5 cats and one kitten. My daughter found the tiny kitten the street alone and crying loudly! We were down to 5 form 6 cats. ha ha ha Life is funny that way. The kitten has been sick twice since we adopted her. It's almost as expensive as having a sick child but we love her. ha ha ha have a great day, hugs to you and your kitty
