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: I received your swap … It was all torn open on both ends. I don't think enough tape … glue was used to seal it:< I think I got all the pieces to the letter though.
Response: oh, yuck, so sorry for the mess but thanks for letting me know it arrived fairly intact! may your mailbox bring many better surprises > keep swapping!

Comment: Thank you. I enjoyed reading your answers and Valentine kitties are adorable 💜
Comment: I'm betting you would get the prize if there was one for the "mostest" stamps swap. And, I can't express enough how special this swap is to me. I doubt you had anyway of knowing, but Thornton Wilder is one of my favorite veteran authors and especially "The Bridge of San Louis Rey". So, this Wilder post card will be cherished. Thanks so much.
Response: omg, you made my day! thrilled to be a participant in this extra special swap! have a fab february =)
Comment: thank you for the interesting articles
