About Me

When you hear the term Road Warrior it applies to those who travel for work, well I am more then that. I live on the road, I have the life of a nomad, one that stays in hotels. I get a paycheck for taking special displays all over the country. I love to travel, there are few places I have not been.

Well enough of that, the key things to know about me are that I love my dog and my husband. I travel about 320 days a year. My husband and I are Mobile Tour Staff, we take traveling exhibits all over the country. I live out of a Semi truck and stay in hotels.

I more then love dogs, I am a little obsessed. I have tons of books on them and love to research breads and training. However all of this is trumped by my obsession for Scottie Dogs. I have one, I have always wanted on and they are the best dogs ever. I would not say that I collect Scotties but I do tend to be drawn to things that have Scotties on them. Just about all my jammies do.

I love postcards too, since I travel so much I can find good ones. I have a few other friends who model that we all exchange them. My favorite kind are the cartoon drawings of states that have iconic drawings next to landmarks.

Favorite Music

I like bluegrass, older jazz, rock and folk music. I am fans of artists like Johnny Cash, Sons of the Pioneers, The Goodyear Pimps, John Denver, John Forgery, Bob Dylan. Celtic - modern and classic.

Favorite Books

I mostly read travel writing, for one one I travel so much and being able to is the reason I work. Also like history and eastern studies. I am a practicing Buddhist

Favorite Crafts

I am a Christmas nut, I have started making Christmas gifts last year in August. The one thing I buy on the road is Christmas ornaments

My Family

It was my husband’s idea to move Minneapolis after we graduated college and I remind him of that every winter. He is an adventurous person, likes to change things up. He had only been here a few times when he was an over-the-road truck driver. A few important things about him, he is a Marine, he is a very talented rugby player, he wishes that he was an artists but instead he is very skilled with creating functional furniture (the in itself is art). He loves our dog, she is his little princess. We spend much of our free time camping and canoeing, those are both his passions. After college he became a High School Administrator but resigned this year and is back to his true love, working outside.

Our fur baby’s name is Pippi, she is a year three old Scottie. She is the light of our life!! A funny little girl, like most Scotties are. She will do just about anything for peanut butter. She looks great in red but her favorite color is purple. I have been slowly recovering all the pads in her kennel/house in purple fleece. Being the good little dog that she is, we travel with her, mostly with me. She goes almost everywhere with me, even to my photoshoots (as you can see from my avatar).

My style

My personal style is a bit buttoned up, I wear a suit or something comparable during the week and most of my casual clothes are not that casual. I do however have a tangent for rugby jerseys (go figure), I prefer my clothing and accessories to be more classic.

I am Scottish and very proud of my heritage, ahem the dog, many things in our home are Celtic. The music we listen too, how we decorate and how I dress. My husband is Dutch which we celebrate as well but it is mostly a Celtic home. I should not I am not Irish and there is a difference.

Last Thing

I LOVE DOGS, LOL

Comment: Hi Abigail... THANK YOU SO MUCH for the treats and the doggy toy. This is by far the LARGEST package I have ever received from a swap. You are very kind. The dog cookies looks lovely I almost wanted to eat them myself haha... ;-). Scout loves them. He got so jealous when I shared them with Tiggie, my sister's dog :P. He followed the box from postmen to the table and sat there looking at the parcel. It's as if he knows this is for him. Thanks dear.
Response: Good! Not low cal treats however

Comment: Thanks for the wonderful items. I had just remodeled my bathroom. I am continuing the lighthouse theme. The basket and towel will match it nicely. I like the ribbon and the seeds. I have not planted my garden yet. So they will get started next week. Happy swapping. Linda

Comment: I love the WA. D.C. postcard. Thanks. The last time I was there was back in the mid 80's in 8th grade with our history class. It was a fun trip even though I got homesick. Cheers!

Hi, Just checking in to see if you received my MAP Postcard. I have been rated by all the other swap partners so I wanted to make sure you had yours! Please let me know. Thanks!

TeaNi on Jan 6, 2008:

Hi! I am sending you a postcard for the map postcards swap, but since you say your favorite kind of pc "are the cartoon drawings of states that have iconic drawings next to landmarks" I was wondering if you have one of GA for your collection. If not, I have one I'd be glad to send you, just let me know! :-)
