Retired. Husband retired. Two daughters both married. Two teenage granddaughters. One cat. I am spiritual, but not religious.

PLEASE NOTE: I try to get my swaps done as soon as I sign up because I sign up for so many. Therefore, they do not reflect partner preferences as partners are not assigned until weeks later. I don't sign up for profile swaps for this reason.
I take my membership in the groups I belong to or have created very seriously. I try to sign up for at least one swap per month in each group (other than my own)unless the subject does not interest me. The founders/coordinators/officers of these groups work very hard to think of swaps, vet participants, and troubleshoot any problems. I do my best to support them by signing up for swaps and being available to host when needed.
I have never, nor will I ever flake on any swap I undertake. If I find, by some cruel twist of fate, that I cannot complete a swap by its deadline, I will notify you & the coordinator to obtain a mutually agreeable solution. I will rate promptly. I would appreciate it if you have any problems with or do not receive any of my swaps that you notify me so I may rectify the problem. I promise to do the same for you. Thank you for allowing me to participate in this wonderful creative journey with you!
