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: Loved the extra postcards! Thank you for sharing your weekend with me, enjoy your trip to Salt Lake, I've got a lot of family in that area, I envy you.
Comment: Lots of great stamps! Thanks much!
Comment: Dear Genise, belated thank you for this wonderful vintage Radio City Music Hall card, katydid and Tiffany lamp postage, Minion, and your kind, honest message -- the postcard show you attended sounds wonderful (I don't think there are any nearby down here), and I hope you are having a good end to spring. You and your kind, generous, stimulating letter (I loved the article on Indian dance and theatre! how I would have loved to have seen the production :) and the Starbucks came at just the right time) have been on my mind these weeks. I look forward to writing you soon. Thank you for bringing light and joy to my day and inbox! I hope you get to visit the places you want ♥

Comment: Love the sparkly Seattle card! It's been consistently around 85 degrees in my house when I go to bed...I turn on the fans and I'm fine. Not sure how hot it's been outside, but it has got to be up there.

Awww, thank you for the thank you, and the sweet enclosures. All of it was quite touching, and with the exception of the bookmark will be paid forward in future correspondence. I'm glad to know that you are enjoying letter writing month.
