About Me

Update: as of Nov. 6/17, I am retired!

I am a former street walker that moved inside due to worn out knees and feet.

What is up with that, you ask? I was a letter carrier and worked inside receiving or despatching the mail, and occasionally working in retail.

Worked for a financial institution for 12 years and co-managed an appliance, electronics, furniture store for 10.

I have a warped sense of humour, and am seldom, if ever, serious. Well...only when I should be...maybe.

Born and raised in Prince Rupert, on Kaien Island, in the northwest corner of coastal British Columbia. I even have the webbed feet to prove it.

This has given me a love of all things outdoors. Fishing (ocean), hiking, beachcombing, wildlife.

I have two children. A daughter, 28; a daughter, 27; and, a bonus...D-I-L, 24.

We have 3 cat-people: Growl, Meow and KitKat. UPDATE: Dec. 2016: Now there are 4. Spooky is a stray that adopted our carport. She was very thin and the weather was getting well below freezing. We brought her in to preserve her life and fell in love. Kit loves playing with her.
UPDATE: Aug. 2017: And then there were 5. Spooky gifted us with 5 kittens in March, all found homes but one...Boots...well, he is with us permanently so i guess that means he found one too.

Interested in people. Tell me about yourself. Where you live, what you do. Your likes and dislikes. Dreams and desires. Anything you want.

I look forward to meeting you, so to speak.


I am not crafty, at all.

My stick people are barely recognizable.

I can place stickers on paper to "create" stationery. It seems nigh on impossible to find any where they do not ask for an arm and a leg in payment.

I can make a basic envelope out of old calendars, maps, etc.


Just about anything. Though do not care for Rap, Grunge, or Death Metal.

A small sampling of favorite bands / singers:

AC/DC, Abba, Maroon 5, Richie Valens, Doug & the Slugs, Janelle Monae, P!nk, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Shontelle, Imagine Dragons, Manhattan Transfer, Bryan Adams, Jen Foster, Corday, Billy Idol, Billy Squier, Pat Benatar, The Beatles, Betty, SHeDAISY, Sweet, Nazareth, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Melissa Etheridge, and the list goes on...


I LOVE to cook, especially ethnic dishes.

Italian, Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Vietnamese, Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Scandinavian...

Am always on the lookout for a new recipe to try.

I am NOT a baker. You can shingle your roof with my pie crusts.


I am a voracious reader...

Favorites genres, in random order:

Sci–Fi, Paranormal, Mystery, Crime, Romance, Classics, Suspense, Thrillers, LGBT

Do not like Horror.


Snail Mail – penpals, postcards (naked), letters, stamps

Coins – I collect specialty coins from the Royal Canadian Mint; have a couple handfuls of coins leftover from travel abroad

Stickers – to decorate my letters and envelopes; of my favourite animals, emoji, happy faces (not necessarily round), balloons, celebrative in nature (for birthdays, etc)...

Animals – penguins, owls, fish, butterflies, raccoons, bears, koalas, pandas, ladybugs...

Small Stuffies – of my favourite animals, Dory, Snoopy, Woodstock...

Photography – love nature photos such as the wildlife and land around us; natural wonders; flowers (technically a part of nature); buildings that have character...

Colours – rainbow, blues, greens, brown

Chocolate – not white, no heat or coffee / tea flavours

Beverages – nothing caffeinated, no alcohol

Sports – Hockey (go Canucks!); Canadian Football,

Magnets and Patches – anything that relates to my interests; country symbols (i.e. Canada - beaver, moose); flags...



I have Reactive Airway Disorder and react to perfumes, cleaning products, smoke, and lavender.

I am generally ok with scents from fruit, herbs, spices.

Comment: Mega awesomeness! Thanks for all the goodies. Can't wait to try the fountain pen--never used one. And it's a good thing you bagged the ink--they both leaked a bit but not all. And the candy will be gone tomorrow ;)
