About Me

About my 3 ratings. They are all fair ratings. I have made up the swap I didn't send and resent 2 that I trusted someone else to take to the post, but the swaps were sent over a year late, a year and a half in one case due to communications and negotiations.

I've learned my lesson and plan my swaps for bordelaire type intrusions now.

Comment: Thanks for sharing all about your goals! I think it's so honorable how selfless they are--plus you don't sound simply ideological about them, you seem like you've got a business savvy to them. Keep me updated, I'd love to visit your B&B! Best wishes that you figure out the best way to achieve all your goals :)
Response: Thank you! I'll definitely keep ya updated. Started a new business plan yesterday for the vet home. Working on it some today.
Comment: Thank you so much. I hope your wishes come tue. Big hugs!

So I wasn't sure what the swap was about....so I just now checked my archived swaps and found it. i'm so sorry I didn't rate you. Love how you decorated the stationary and learning about your lifeThe memorial sounded like a nice way to remember. And may you have many more roads to travel. Have a great day, bearnbab
