About Me

I am a retired school librarian and former English teacher. Currently I share my home with cats and three dogs.

Favorite Music

I love most kinds of music, but I am not a musician. I only play the radio, and I only sing for small children who are very forgiving. If I must chose a favorite type, it would probably be folk music from around the world.

Favorite Books

In my opinion, Charlotte's Web is right up at the top of the best books in whole world. Another favorite is Seedfolks. I read lots of books intended for children and young adults. The illustrations in picturebooks make them particularly tempting. I enjoy the39 Clues, Percy Jackson, Septimus Heap, and Missing series. I love audio books and listen in the car all of the time unless I have a passenger. I am enjoying the Massie Dobbs mysteries.

Favorite Movies

One of my favorite films is A New Leaf with Walter Mathau and Elaine May. Other favorites are What's Up, Doc? with Barbara Streisand and Madeline Kahn and Man's Favorite Sport with Rock Hudson and Paula Prentis. I know they are oldies, but so much fun. March of the Penguins made me cry. I've seen Avatar twice. Hidden Figures was excellent.

Favorite Television

Some shows I don't like to miss are the Amazing Race, Designated Survior, Charlie Rose, Nova, and Nature. I enjoy dance programs. Sunday Morning on CBS is one of the best shows on TV, but I need to record it if I want to see it. We see Jeopardy at suppertime. When I was staying with my mom, I really enjoyed the Doc Morton series which is now on our local PBS station. I also listen to some PBS programming while I am doing other things. I am a fan of NPR.

Favorite Crafts

I like arts andcrafts. I have done some sewing and embroidery, but not counted cross-stich. I enjoy making something out of nothing. My mother was very resourceful that way. I have been spending a lot more time with plants in the yard and have my own private jungle.

About Me

As a volunteer, I use my post cards from swaps for activities with students at school. I appreciate interesting stamps almost as much as the postcards. I learned about Postcrossing from another Swap-bot member's profile, and I have been doing that, too. Mail is so much more interesting these days! I love things representative of other countries and cultures. I also would like for students to see UNESCO sites (see the list at http://whc.unesco.org/en/list .)

About Me

I always read my partner's profile and try to suit his or her preferences. Please let me know if you have not received a swap. If for some reason, you do not receive a rating from me, please contact me after a reasonable amount of time has passed. I try to rate the day something arrives. Once in a while, postcards have been trapped in catalogs or magazines.
