About Me

Happy Swapping

I'm Gabi.. a 1940s and 1950s living historian. My husband and I own a WWII Traveling museum and do quite a few events during the year.

I love the neat and tidy look of 1940s and 1950s fashion as well as the music from that Era. My husband and I are swing dancers and attend quite few events each month!

8/21/18 My computer crashed and destroyed the drivers (No idea what that is) so I had it at Apple for a few days and it's not repairable. So here I am home with a brand new computer. I like the new computer but nothing I saved is on it. None of my bookmarks, log ins, passwords etc.. that's so frustrating!! UGH I'm not ignoring anyone... I simply wasn't able to access online to get in here. So now Im setting things up -and the first place I logged in was SWAP-BOT. LOL
