About Me

I grew up in Virginia. I lived many years in the Chicago area. I formerly worked as a psychiatric nurse. I have two daughters. One is a professor of dramatic arts at a university in England. Her sister has a master's in social work. I am a collector of post cards and stamps. I especially like foreign cards and stamps from Germany, Russia, and England. I belong to a stamp club but do not have the knowledge regarding the stamps that many of the men in the club have. I attend in part to learn more. I also have many US cards and stamps. I like vintage cards and stamps. I have some collectibles from the Chicago Century of Progress World's Fair. I enjoy reading biographies and mysteries, novels as well. I have many books, too many. I recently read "A Life in Secrets-Vera Atkins and the Missing Agents of WW11".I like British mysteries, Agatha Christie, etc.I think it is time to read "1984' again. I like music of many types. I like opera, Broadway tunes, jazz, classical--whatever appeals to my ear. I am a regular viewer of Netflix and go out to the movies when a good flick is showing. I check out PBS online to catch TV I might have missed on Masterpiece Theater programs. I love them. I used to watch "Mystery" but it's off now. I have moved from NH to VT. I am a passionate traveler and recently had a trip to England and Germany.

About Me

My post card preferences: As mentioned, I love real vintage cards, the older the better. I have a fine collection of early 1900s cards. I like black and white real photograph cards. I like cards from the 20s and 30s. I like cards with paintings, cards with cats and dogs, foreign cards, oddity cards, castles, not so much into churches or town halls. I like cards of hospitals. I like cards depicting southern scenes. I am a real eclectic. I like all cards associated with England and love cards that have been sent through the mail. Stamps: I like foreign more than US. I have many from around the world. Eastern Europe, I really like. And, unusual stamps.WW2 stamps are a preference of mine. And, all stamps remotely associated with England and the Queen.

About Me

More Special Likes: Real vintage anything prior to 1960 the older the better stationery black tea loose or bags greeting cards Christmas cards candles jewelry, earrings for pierced ears pins with letter M teabag dish anything Christmas theme items of WW2 vintage foreign coins Christmas stamps from foreign countries Love things British! keys, old ones mirrors dresser set items foreign magnets for refrig. old lace Oxfam or similar store items foreign calendars sm. cookbooks from English speaking countries Love Russian items from USSR times

About Me

Dislikes: cutesy items crafty things sewing items green and white teas obviously worn out things or soiled things anything preferred by a 15 year old

About Me

I only like black tea, no flavored tea. I like English Breakfast tea, Irish Breakfast tea, Darjeeling tea, Earl Grey. I drink it strong with milk and no sugar. I am an English purist concerning tea.

About Me

I have expressed my likes regarding post cards. I am a serious collector, but want everyone to know creases, holes in pcs as from thumb tacks, tanning of cards, tears, poor condition pcs are totally worthless, and I don't want them! Cards can be from 1907 and still be in great shape. I would think you out there who choose to send cards would know not to send poor condition cards. They go in the garbage.

About Me

I have failed to add my interest in writing. I have taken many writing courses over the years and am in one now, which is mainly stressing poetry, but we do prose writing as well. I have been active in Brattleboro, VT Write Action which you can find on facebook. I have writings in a few anthologies, but nothing published to sell for personal gain. I have kept journals from time to time and have been in a journal writing class. I still enjoy snail mail letter writing, but few share my enthusiasm.

Comment: 100 hearts dear lady! You sent such wonderful items. The metal cheese slicer (love, love it), the bread warmer is perfect for my Sunday dinners, the cutting board, napkins and the hotpad (I need these always for my table---did you happen to make it?). It felt like Christmas opening your package this morning. Sending a cyber Huge Hug. You did great making me feel special. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. All these items will be on my table (or used) ** I forgot to mention what a lovely letter I got from you as well. I have you on my Christmas card list**

Comment: You seriously have the best handwriting I've ever seen. It's so easy to read! I enjoyed your story quite a bit. I was thinking the locked door would be the Checkov's Gun, so I totally overlooked the idea of the bag being it. Very clever! thanks for sending

Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely postcard! It would be amazing to go see the Great Wall of China! To answer your question, I’d want to go to England. For some reason I feel very drawn to the little villages there!! It’s warm and sunny here in the Jacksonville Fl area...but last week we got some cold weather!
Response: I love England, but I still have not seen China. It may never happen. I have old post cards of Jacksonvillle. My grandmother lived there in 1907.

Comment: Hi Jean, thanks for the cards! We survived the Hurricane and today the tree man finally came to trim all the broken branches and palms I couldn’t reach. So we are pretty much done except putting the fountain all back together and putting big potted stuff back out in the yard away from the front entrance. Were very fortunate. But I am finally having to admit I’m not as young as I think I am! We go to sweltering southern Illinois in the summer. That’s where we used to live. It’s really cooler in the summer in sw Fla!
Response: I am sorry for your damages. It could be worse. I hear from Puerto Rico about their problems. I would rather be hot than cold.
