This is Ann's daughter

Ann is back in the hospital again as of the evening of Oct 22nd.

Will try to keep this page updated


All, but one, of my behind swaps are mailed as of OCT. 22ND

I will now answer all messages & PM's

I still will not be reading my ratings, not be rating any swaps, or comments, until I am caught up.

Oct 18, 2016

On the 8th of October I had an unexpected Ambulance Ride to the Hospital, and have just came home today (Oct 18, 2016)

Consequently, some swaps that were due out I was not able to get out during the last 10 days At this time my priority is to get those swaps done

Also I will be PM’ing all partners and host/hostesses of the individual swaps. This will take several days.

During this time I will not be reading, nor answering PM’s, nor messages. I will not be reading my ratings, not be rating any swaps, or comments, until I am caught up.

I Pledge to Rate

I pledge to ALWAYS send my swaps out on time - or I will notify my partner BEFORE hand

I pledge to Rate.ALWAYS! I may not rate as fast as some might like, but I will rate by the next day of the swap reminder email. If I haven't received it by then I will ask about it. If you haven't rated by then I will also check in with you. For overseas swaps I will wait for 4 weeks before contacting partners.

I always send on time. If a package arrives with money owed I will return postage to you. I have had that happen once when the Post Office ws the one who mailed it! Go figure!!! LOL

I have two threes - which were given unfairly. Will not go into them here except to say I sent off replacements for each one and still ended up with a 3! Earliest one changed her profile after 1st swap sent. (Still have copy of profile) Also is presently (5/15/16 when I first saw it) on partial suspension for THE THIRD TIME that I know of.

One from almost 6 months ago lives overseas. Claimed sent late. Sent on time (have copy of receipt & customs form.) took almost 5 weeks to get to her Then she said it didn't qualify. Sent proof of where it came from and was qualified. resent - refused to acknowledge. Then she stated she didn't like it! (Thought that didn't qualify for low rating????) Anyway re-sent and since then have not heard from her. Never answers messages.

Oh well we all know there are some here who are not fair!

I have over 1200 fives and over 1000 hearts in the 2 years i have belonged to Swap Bot! That should say something about my swaps!


I am a 74 year old widow.

Retired after working as a nurse for a State mental Institution in 2005.
