About Me

Welcome to my profile. I am a casual social worker working in mental health and addictions, and also working in primary care clinics. I live in a 1930's apartment in the downtown of a mid-size Northern community in Canada. I live with my husband, King Charles spaniel and a leonberger dog who goes to a countryside daycare 5 days a week. We love hosting international students and expect a Korean woman this summer, then a Rotary student from Venezuela for the fall semester.

I went on a university tour recently - 10 people and the facilitator 2 hours by boat up the northwest coast to a ghost town called Anyox. Anyox had been a copper mining community but burned down in the 1930’s. I was so taken by how the coastal forest had reclaimed the settlement. Loved seeing old fire hydrants in the forest. Tracing old building foundations and exploring the old dam. These are the mini-adventures that make me happy.

Things that energize me: visual arts!! - wall murals, great signs, architecture, ATC’s, antiques, drawings, printmaking, wooden carvings - quirky people, nature, travel (wide and far), community development, birds, mammals, hiking trails, waterfalls, anything “Griffin”, antique postcards & letters, history, lenticular pc’s and bookmarks, literary fiction, erotica, linguistics, mental health, museums.

I don't care for cutesy/girlie things or child reward stickers. I am not religious but don’t mind beautiful religious symbols and architecture (just don’t try to sell me:-) But really, if I get something I cannot use, I just pass it on.

Happy swapping.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful PC. I actually own a little stock in the CN. We had two CN subsidiaries operating in New England; The Grand Trunk and the Central Vermont, and we would often see CN power on both.
Response: What a small world - the lot that my home is built on was owned by the Grand Trunk back in the 1930’s.

Comment: Thank you so much for your interesting letter; it sparked so many responses in me! First of all, you got my name right - I can't see how people could mess up your name! Someone just needs to go into the computer list and correct it and then SAVE the correction! ha! I have not been to Laos or Cambodia, but I have been to Costa Rica! That was a great trip! Love your pics - you took your dogs along with you? About God - we're at the age where friends are dropping dead; makes one investigate that they have the afterlife figured out. Not only does God help reassure me in that area, but he also helps me in this life in such a loving way. I wanted to find out the truth, and I have found it in God and my savior, Jesus Christ. I watched a movie about the Camino de Santiago; it was very interesting. I haven't been on any pilgrimage, nor have i been to India. A friend of mine went to Lourdes and brought back water from there. I had a medical issue (post-menopausal bleeding) and before I had gone to the dr. for tests, my friend put a little Lourdes water on my abdomen (over my clothes) and my friends prayed over me. I went to the dr, and the dr was very sympathetic and kind to me; she hugged me and walked me out of her office. I thought this wasn't going to be good. But the test came back negative! I credit that to God's mercy on me. Our daughter-in-law is also a social worker; she specializes in adoptions. It is very satisfying for her. I do a lot of card-making. I got enthusiastic when I learned how to make pop-up cards. They take some time to make, but they sure are fun to send! I try to put something on the card that the recipient is interested in or something we experienced together. I have traded some ATCs and I have to admit they are a little over my head. The ones I got back were so much better than mine, so I decided that was not my gift. Thanks again for a wonderful letter; I enjoyed it very much!
