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: Thank you so much for this great letter extras. I'd be very interested in checking out a mushroom show. Mushrooms aren't that easy to find wild here in this Colorado desert climate. Take care!

Comment: Thank you for this postcard, I love the stamps you have used!! Antonia xxx
Comment: Ahhh, it is always a treat to see your name and smiling handwriting in my box :) Thank you for the colorful, cheerful card from Jamaica -- it is a happy coincidence, as I have been working as an assistant on the pre-Broadway run of Escape to Margaritaville, and our music supervisor divulged that he used a motif from the humorous, based-on-real-life "Jamaica Mistaica" in one of the underscore pieces; I realized in the past few weeks of this temporary job that I am more familiar with Mr. Buffett's oeuvre than I thought and that I should like his songs because he's a storyteller (vs. "just" a love song writer). I also love the fall-themed stickers and that you shared your recent trip with me :) I owe you a newsy letter ♥♥♥

Comment: Thanks for the great card and the cool stamps! I’m curious as to what they actually are celebrating on it!

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.
