About Me

My mom passed away in October. Christmas was OK but her birthday hit me pretty hard. I will not be swapping most of March and I have to travel up north to take care of things.

Looking for 1 for 1 ATC swappers-USA only please.


UPDATE: In 2017 I treated myself to some VIP concert outings: Alice Cooper, Matt Mason, Phillip Phillips and good seats for Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker, Ringo Starr and Todd Rundgren, Trans Siberian Orchestra & Jeff Dunham. In 2018 I saw Blake Shelton, Josh Turner, Pat Benetar, Luke Bryan and Trace Adkins. Have tickets for Home Free and Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding. This year Willie Nelson, Heart and Joan Jett, Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins again. Rock on!


UPDATE SEPT 8th, 2016: I retired from my McDonald's job after almost 8 years. My brother passed away in 2016. PLEASE keep in touch with those far away. You never know... My name is armadillogal...I live in New Mexico now but I was born and raised a cheesehead in Wisconsin. I am a diehard Packers fan!

I love my Geo Tracker...especially for geocaching! UPDATE April 29th 2017: I now own a pick-up truck. I live in the Land of Enchantment with my fiancee Jack and my "kids". All my kids have four feet and fur.

Postcards

** I prefer my postcards NOT written on and sent in an envelope but if it's a stamped swap I acknowledge that and swap accordingly**

PLEASE though if you are sending them with other things in an envelope put them between cardboard so they don't get bent. It makes me sad when cards are ruined by this.

  • Prefer cats, manatees, valentines, zoos, other holiday cards, wolves, polar bears, hot air balloons, night city views, rock formations, castles, caves, space, native americans, waterfalls, sunsets, lightning, wild life, recipes, star trek, black and white art cards, old cars, route 66, old west, lions, tigers, all wild cats, great architecture, NPCW, classic rock singers, country singers, castles, rocks and minerals, neon signs, and unusual scenics...

  • No WIS, TX or NM cards unless you ask first-I have tons as I live in NM...No stadiums, maps, nudes, tear outs, 3 x 5's unless in my prefs...

  • PLEASE rate the swaps I send so I know you received. I never flake and if something gets lost I will try to replace it...I pride myself in being a faithful swapper.

Favorite Books

Mysteries, Native American, biographies, cats, Star Trek, some series books like Monk, Diane Mott Davidson, Castle, Murder She Wrote, J.A. Jance, Sneaky Pie Brown, Laura Childs scrapbooking books, Sheila Roberts, Susan Mallery, Garfield, Michael McGarrity, J.D. Robb etc. I love the Longmire series by Craig Johnson. I have them all except the kindle ones.

Favorite Music

This is Tate Stevens... In 2013 I won a contest to go meet him. We also saw him in Arizona and met him there too. I saw him in Farmington for my birthday! Aaron Tippin is a long time favorite. I met Kathy Mattea as well as Billy Ray Cyrus. I like country music, classic rock, native american, and some pop, especially female artists. Wynonna, Billy Ray Cyrus, Craig Wayne Boyd, Lance Miller, Lonestar, Diamond Rio, Miranda Lambert, Jo Dee Messina, Tina Turner, The Band Perry, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Kathy Mattea & Sugarland are among my top faves. Recently saw GARTH.....and previously enjoyed Sawyer Brown, Merle Haggard, Brad Paisley and Robert Mirabal. I enjoyed Phillip Phillips on Idol and loved him in concert in Las Cruces. It was great meeting him in Albuquerque! I am happy that Darci Lynne won AGT. I also love Terry Fator and Jeff Dunham. I used to do karaoke and sing songs by Wynonna, Jo Dee Messina, Carly Simon, etc. My first ever concert was the Jackson 5.

My favorite heavy metal performer is Alice Cooper.

The person I've seen the most is Ricky Lynn Gregg who is a country rocker from Texas.

Favorite Television

I am into Star Trek (Vulcan)RIP LEONARD NIMOY...

Longmire , NCIS, The Voice, America's Got Talent, Chopped, Shark Tank, Grey's Anatomy, American Pickers, Storage Wars, Criminal Minds, Ellen and The View.

HAPPY WINTER!

Wishing you a safe and happy winter!

I stood beside a HiLL Smooth with new-laid snow A single star looked out From the cold evening glow. There was no other creature That saw what I could see I stood and watched the evening STAR As long as it watched me.

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne

yvonne401 on Nov 22, 2018:

We gather on this day to be thankful for what we have, for the family we love, the friends we cherish, and for the blessings that will come.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne

WISHING YOU AND YOURS A HAPPY FALL!

Once Upon An Autumn Day - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

Once Upon an autumn day, Colorful leaves began to fade In the midst of a chilly, frosty air As multitude of trees grew steadily bare.

Once upon an autumn day, The whispering breeze was here to stay Moving aimlessly through the countless trees Scattering leaves with the greatest of ease.

Once upon an autumn day, The leaves whirled freely in every way, Until at last they came to rest Finding a haven in which to nest.

Once upon an autumn day, The trees were dormant, and the leaves lay Waiting for the winter snow to fall To quickly obscure them one and all.

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne
