About Me

i definitely appreciate every/all my swap-bot mail, always & regardless, but kinds of postcards i especially like:

  • just people doing stuff
  • trees
  • food/outdoor markets
  • educational/interesting facts
  • vintage
  • funny/cheerful/cute
  • glaciers
  • children's book illustrations
  • fish
  • maps {of course!}
  • current events/interesting quotes

i am retired, volunteer & hard-of-hearing, so knit/crocheting,reading books, magazines & the internet help me pass the time enjoyably! otherwise, i like walking & getting out to possibly find little surprises & inspiration if i had cable tv with captions, i would be hooked on true-crime stories & docu- mentaries ... trying to learn anything & figure out what this world's about!

unfortunately, i am not much an artist, but i cherish creativity & do my best with snails on a limited budget (my splurge in life is simply "postage" for trading with many good people all over the world!)

Favorite Books

my reading preferences:

  • nonfiction
  • true crime
  • travel
  • biography
  • humor

Favorite Movies

rarely do i see movies anymore, but here are a few i liked:

  • adaptation
  • crouching tiger/hidden dragon
  • meet the parents
  • being john malkovich
  • american beauty

Favorite Television

i yearn for those premium cable channels, but only have lousey broadcast, so don't watch much tv, either! if i get the opportunity, i like:

  • my name is earl
  • seinfield
  • get a life
  • 60 minutes/48 hours/dateline
  • intervention/snapped/no reservations

Favorite Crafts

crochet & knit dishcloths, so, cotton yarn is my favorite!

making envies

Favorite Music

music is part of my past: do not have the slightest concept of current groups today ... when my hearing was better, i loved:

60's/70's pop dance/electronic soul/rb

{fleetwood mac, beatles}

currently enjoying:

daft punk

misc. notes

reading another description of swap requirements, here is my attempt to summarize my

  • likes: nice stuff {stickers always appreciated!}

  • dislikes: bad stuff

  • wants: personal mail things

  • not wants: empty mailbox

sooo ... i'll try to remember to update this info more on occasion & please do not hesitate to let me know any further in regard to what you'd like to know about me, 'k?


Comment: Thanks so much for the unusual & fun selection of postcards, Neecie. I lived in Key West when the shrimp docks still looked like the picture on the old card. Now it's all touristy. Love the delicate paper your envie was made from. Extra โ™ฅโ™ฅ for including a vintage B&W real photo and the lovely stamps & faux postage.
Comment: Thank you for the adorable letter. I love the owls in the tree. What brand of kawaii is it?
Comment: Thank You so much for your letter! You definitely took the time to read my profile. I do indeed have the gift of gab, my mouth overflows.
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard and the stamps! So cool (:
Comment: Thank you for the letter!
Response: :)
Comment: I had completely forgotten the question/prompt and I was very worried/concerned when I read the first sentence!

Comment: Thank you! What a fun trip to hear about.
Comment: Thank you for your card! To answer your questions... Coachella was fantastic. A guy I've been seeing went with me and I loved showing off my hometown. He met my family which I didn't really want but, what can you do. I didn't go to Bumbershoot, just couldn't justify such a high cost for a dwindling experience. And to hear what happened to those kids! I don't ever have an urge to go there. I have one tattoo that was not done by machine. I actually did it myself! A stick-and-poke--all I used was a sewing needle, india ink, thread, a shot glass to hold the ink, and then a lighter to constantly sterilize the needle. A little rose by my thumb! People joke that I have a prison tat, but I'm really proud of it. My nieces are great! They just visited a couple weeks ago. I don't usually get emotional after family visits but I was crying all night after they left! I'm trying to get them to come up on their next school holiday. And yep...same job. Same sh*t different day? And how are YOU?? Hope you and your husband are well and continuing your fun mini vacations! Thank you for the card you sent. Happy summer to you.
Comment: I love the letter of explanation. Thanks

Comment: Thank you so much for your letter. I hope you have a lovely day!
Comment: Oh. My. Goodness! I've never gotten teary from a swap before...but you somehow opened the flood gates! WOW! I am in awe. Your swap has made my year! Thank you for showing me such kindness. Thank you for demonstrating that you care. Thank you for taking time to get to know me. Thank you for sending me pieces of home that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you for reminding me there is good in the world, and life is worth living, even if just to share it with them. Being so far from like-minded kinfolk recently has made me feel lost in a big sea of confusion. I have heart ache quite literally sometimes, and so I try to keep myself locked up inside like some hermit...these hot summer days all the more so. Which is bad for me, because I need my "green" time outdoors. I guess all my connection to others has been here (in swapbot land) recently, and I didn't know how significantly this changes my emotional state, until now. I am having the epiphany why this silly swapping thing is important to me. For a connection. Just like this one. So, thank you so very deeply for reaching out to my heart to say my life matters and that I'm not lost in this sea alone. I needed this reminded. THANK YOU FOR BEING ON SWAPBOT!
Response: golly gee whiz, i can agree wholeheartedly with you on those many fine points, but it is kinda shocking whatever i did ... it was just what i usually try to do to meet a swap requirement, but yeah, i think you were a special partner that inspired me & i happened to have the things that made you happy: itโ€™s a win-win for each of us! keep open to the good stuff of life ... it truly is a challenge for me, too! take care <3!
