About Me

mystery reader, baseball fan (Brewers are home team), quilter, nature stamping, animal shelter volunteer, frogs, cheezy 1950s movies, gardener , classic car owner. I review books about cars and Formula One racing.

Favorite music: classic rock (Young Rascals, Yardbirds), Motown (Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Al Green), bluegrass (Sam Bush, Alison Krauss and Union Station)

Favorite films: anything by Mel Brooks, Monty Python, comedies with Walter Matthau, Blues Brothers

Favorite authors: nonfiction: David McCullough, Simon Winchester, Richard Preston, Paul Theroux, Jane Leavy, Jane and Michael Stern. Favorite mystery authors: S.J. Rozan, Julia Spencer Fleming, Robert B. Parker, Ed McBain, Donald Westlake, Joan Hess,

Favorite TV: Criminal Minds, CSI, Top Gear (BBC version), MST3K, Columbo, The Simpsons, Futurama, NCIS,Boston Legal

Postcards: especially like major and minor league ballparks, goofy ones with giant fish jumping in boats, Route 66, movies, strange tourist attractions.

ATCs: Recently got interested in these. Don't have any preferences at the moment; I just like to see what others can create.

Recipes: cookie recipes (every year I participate in a cookie exchange, make 70-80 dozen cookies). Like un-fussy recipes that produce a large batch of cookies.

Likes: Route 66, lenticulars (those things that used to come in Crackerjack boxes. We called them winkies When you tilt them one way they show a picture, when you tilt the other, the picture changes),cookie cutters, snowmen, CHOCOLATE, caramels, Peeps, sloths, llamas, frogs, spice mixes, bookmarks, cute socks, anything Godzilla.

Christmas favorites: animated films, classics, tv holiday specials. Snacks: anything chocolate.

Dislikes: religious material (but secular Christmas items are okay--snowmen, snowflakes, candy canes, cookies, reindeer, Santas, holly, wreaths, ornaments, trees, presents, doves, the words peace and joy)

Allergies: not allergic but they clash with my meds: grapefruit and salt substitutes, licorice

I own a cat named Lulu and used to own a Springer Spaniel and Golden Retrievers. We have three rescued pugs in the family. I always wanted to own a Newfoundland. I've been to seminars on cadaver dogs, search and rescue dogs.

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful bookmarks! I love collecting them although I'm still often guilty of grabbing a square of TP. Well, it is where I read a lot. LOL! I really enjoyed re-reading your letter (sorry for the late rate) and You mention more than one book I would like to read. I plan to look up "The Storied Life Of A.J. Fikry." It just speaks to me. I hope you truly enjoy your time reading in the new year! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Diane

Comment: Wow! This package was above and beyond! Thank you so much for the puzzles! I can’t wait to solve them! The cider and cinnamon tea is a great pairing and I think I’d like to try to drink them together😆. The cards, bookmarks and whoppers are much appreciated and I can’t get over the Austen soap and lip balm. Thank you so much for being part of the Jane Austen Book Club with me these last months. It’s been a lot of fun reading and writing with you and I loved experiencing everyone’s enthusiasm and sharing thoughts with each other. I hope you had as much fun as I did. Happy reading in the new year!

Comment: Thank you so much for the darling card and bookmarks. My 89 yr. old uncle always has to be making some kind of noise. He talks, sings or whistles constantly. One of his favorite words to say is Oshkosh. When he gets started he says it, uses it in sentences, and he will spell it for you. LOL! Every time we are partnered I have to giggle about Oshkosh. Have a very Happy New Year! Hugs, Diane

Hi, I see you like frogs, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining my Scales 'n' Tails group? Technically frogs have neither scales nor tails haha but the group is for all reptiles and amphibians :)

25 Days of Christmas in a Padded Envelope --- Just had to add that my two cats LOVE the two small toys and the munchies you sent for them. The toys made a big hit. Thank you for being so kind.

Hi Susan: I was just quickly looking over your profile and saw your profile picture. Well, it stopped me dead in my tracks because I was in hysterics laughing!!! That picture really made my day. I'm still trying to catch my breath after my fit of laughter...too funny!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thanks for the laugh :)
