About Me

I am a U.S. Postal Carrier on the Central Coast of California. I've been walking the streets for 25+ years :)

I love camping, playing on the beach, gardening, anything related to the great outdoors, reading and listening to music.

I have two wonderful grown girls and three beautiful grand daughters, Ava, Ellie Blue & new addition Camille.

My Whippets, Qi & Conan are the best dogs in the world!

I think Yosemite, Switzerland, Alaska and Hawaii are all heaven on earth.

Favorite Music

I love classical turned up really loud on long road trips by myself. Bizet, Liszt, Dvorak

I love funk and jazz while I'm cleaning house and working in my little garden. Tower of Power, Edger Winter, Jaco Pastorius

I love rock and roll all the time. Rush, Yes, Van Halen, David Bowie

Favorite Books

I like mysteries. Alfred Hitchcock, Ellery Queen, Edward D. Hoch

I like science fiction. Gardner Dozois, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein

I like fantasy. Tanith Lee, Roger Zelazny, Marion Zimmer Bradley

I am listening to the Discworld series of books on Audible. Fantastic!!

Favorite Movies

Don't get to see a lot of movies but favor sci-fi and comedies. Most musicals. A good action flick once in the while.

Blade Runner, Star Wars, Close Encounters

When Harry Met Sally, Coming To America, Young Einstein

My Fair Lady, West Side Story, Nightmare Before Christmas

Road Warrior, Die Hard, The Bourne series.

Favorite Television

I don't watch a lot of television being a full time worker and outdoors fan but I'm a sucker for the Discovery Channel and the National Geographic Channel..

Love watching cycling (Tour de France, Tour of California!), Men's tennis and what little surfing is out there.

The DVR takes care of anything I really want to see.

Favorite Crafts

I'm not the crafty type but I'm good on the sewing machine (thanks Mom) and make things I can't always get my hands on.

I've been dabbling with Perler Beads. It's been fun so far :)

Postcards

I prefer my cards written on and stamped.

Any beautiful landscape, Mountains, Forests, Meadows, Savannas, Gardens, The Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights, Midnight Suns, Alaska, Hawaii, Switzerland

Whippet Dogs, Black Panthers, Sea Turtles or Sea Horses, Dragonflies

Surfable Waves, Cycling, Anything Post Office/Mail Related

To make things clear I don't like handmade postcards. I do appreciate the time and talent some people put into them but I've been burned bad by what people call art. A cut out newspaper comic or a piece of wallpaper is not a postcard to me. I collect store bought postcards and try not to sign up for swaps that allow homemade cards. Please save those cards for people who really want them! Thanks!!
