About Me

i definitely appreciate every/all my swap-bot mail, always & regardless, i do not collect anything, but these 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, reading books, magazines & the internet help me pass the time enjoyably! otherwise, i like keeping fit & getting out to possibly find little surprises & inspiration my main role now is caregiver to my husband

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
  • current culture
  • memoirs
  • humor (david sedaris, michael ian black, harrison scott key)

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 do not watch much tv, but cannot avoid the news

the older shows i liked were comedy & documentaries, true crime until they became so everyday!

  • i appreciate anything that can make me laugh or just feel OK about the world

Favorite Crafts

origami stars

making envies

Favorite Music

music is part of my past: do not have the slightest concept of current groups today ... even my old faves are unrecognizable due to my hearing loss

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

let me know if you would like some old Beatle stuff =)

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?

Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -- Martin Luther King Jr.

Comment: Thank you for your note! I enjoyed reading about your favorite books. How nice to have the library so close to your house! And thank you for all the fun facts and trivia. I am having a lot of fun reading them and will share them with my family. I love the vintage postcard too.
Comment: I have too much paper too! Thanks for both postcards. It was very nice of you to send a second when you forgot to answer the prompt the first time. You didn't have to do that! Love the postcards you chose for me!
