ATTENTION: mystery readers. I am reading books by Carol O'Connell. I was sent one of her books in a swap and enjoyed it. I have since gotten her other 9 books and finishing the last one. They are great!.
I taught public school for 32 years: 8th grade math and science; High School Algebra 1. I retired June 13, 2007. .
I love country music - especially the Oldies. My favorites are Loretta Lynn and Charley Pride,
I love mystery books. I adore Kathy Reichs, Jefferson Bass, Patricia Cornwell (please do not send any. I have all of their books) I like Judith Tarr's books. I have now found Jo Graham and really like her work.
Favorite Movies of all times: Gone with the Wind, all of the Star Trek movies with the original cast, Star Wars, any movie with Harrison Ford. Like the later movies of John Wayne (especially the comedies with Maureen O'Hara).
My favorite television shows: NCIS, CSI, Bones, Ciminial Minds, Cold Case, Without a Trace, V, Burn Notice, Leverage, Game of Thrones, Grim, Once Upon a Time Love to watch reruns of Star Trek and those listed above.
My favorite crafts are crocheting, knitting, needlepoint, cross-stitch, making ATCs, recycling cards into postcards and ATCs. I love to try new things- that is why I like Swapbot.
Postcards: I make postcards using used cards (Christmas, Birthday, Get Well, any kind) and pictures from calendars. My friends and relatives give me all the cards they receive. In addition, I use pictures from books that I purchase at thrift store. I really like recycling.
I like pandas, cats, rainbows, animals of all kinds, insects (I know that these are animals, but some people don't refer to them as such).
Actually I like just about everything. I love receiving mail!!!!!!!!!
I would like to explain the three 3s that I received.
The 3 was given because my partner said it was mailed 7 days after due date. I told her that I put it in the mailbox on June 2. She said that I lied because the postmark was June7. Let me explain "put in mailbox". When the swap is finished and ready to mail, I put it in the mailbox here at the house. I mark them sent on Swapbot. My father picks up the mail from the mailbox and takes it to the Post Office. I do not go to the Post Office except on special occassions because I stay with my mother. Why it took so long, I don't know. I believe that the time between June 2 and June 7 includes the weekend. We have a small postoffice. I am sorry about this.
The third ATC was on a loteria card. One these you put a number, name, and picture of the object. I did this. My partner did not like how I did the card. She stated that 3 stickers was not an ATC. The loteria called for a Nigro man. I found a sticker and 2 pictures of boys (little men) for my picture. I responded to her that I had meet the requirements and whether she liked it or not that I should get a 5.
About the fourth 1. As I had noted in my profile my mother passed away on May 4. I had several handmade swaps. (She would lay in the bed and watch what I was doing. She seemed to enjoy this) After her death, I just couldn't seem to work on anything. This swap was due to be mailed by May 25 I finished it and planned to mail on May 29. I wrote my partner and explained about Mom. I mailed the swap. She wrote and said it never arrived. I made another and mailed it. How can a reswap not be late? She commented that it was very nicely made.
