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: This festival looks so amazing! I wish I could go. We have a local fall festival, but I have plans this year, so I won't be able to attend.
Comment: Wonderful selection of stamps and interesting pc. I've heard of cliff net fishing in Smithers, BC but have never seen it done. So much history being thrown out nowadays and I think it's important we keep it - good or bad - so we learn and grow for a better future for everyone.

Comment: Love the old stamps to go along with the old picture :) Thank you so much for sharing! I love vintage/old postcards. I wish I could find them for 10 cents!
Response: yes, i am appreciating how fortunate it is to have a local postcard club make such cheap thrills available ... just being able to browse so many old images is great entertainment!

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.
