About Me

There are so many incredible people who are involved on this site, and I love "meeting" you all through swaps!

Meanwhile, even though I remember when the Beatles were young, I continue to learn about life, about other people, and about God. I can tell you life is exciting, amazing and intensely interesting, with lots of laughter in the mix.

I live in the US, and I love to travel and I love to hear about what it's like where you live. And I love nature - I am fascinated with the mysteries and power of nature, as well as the amazing scenery around the globe!

Water is one of my loves, including water scenes, water sports, and water inhabitants.

Likes old cathedrals • funny sayings • Geocaching magnets, coins or micros • specialty paper • magnet-backed paper pads • vintage items & cut-outs • pens • sharpies • anything that lights up, like lasers or LEDs.

I also collect unique coffee mugs • I appreciate scrapbook or ATC supplies • washi tape • deco tape • letter sets • stickers.

Postcards -- touristy postcards from around the world; animals, water, cathedrals, weird natural formations, national parks, sports stadiums, the "biggest or best" of a region, oddities, water sports & scenery. Not crazy about ad postcards. I like naked PCs!

Music classical • oldies rock • blues • new bands • and Caribbean.

Art I love artists with a twist, like Escher, Munch, and Dali, but I also like Monet and Rembrandt.

Edibles I think milk chocolate is best with nuts. I also like black licorice • almonds • pecans • macadamias • Brazil nuts • pistachios • hazelnut.

Tea, tea, tea! I'm a tea hag - British Breakfast • Earl Grey • Chai • Spice • Coconut.

Reading is my passion and I love mysteries, crime-solving and espionage - the truer, the better!

Response: Iowa is not known as a touristy state. Mostly people just try to get through it. It does have its own charm, though. You're welcome!

Comment: Very nice zine - good luck with your list. That's a pretty awesome Firebird, too - is it yours? Your photos are lovely - thanks for sending and for the extras! So sorry you didn't get to see the eclipse. It was pretty awesome, but the 80% we had didn't look like 80%. I'm hoping for no clouds in 2024 because that one comes right over Akron, Ohio, about 10 minutes from my house!
Response: OH! Lucky you for the 2014 eclipse! Something to look forward to! Yes, we got the Firebird in 1970 and now we only drive it in the summer! Thanks for the heart!!!!

You're very welcome. Even my grumpy post surgery father in law thought it was cool.

I know I already rated you for the Purple Passion ATC I hosted, but I was going through my pile of mail and sorting stuff and just noticed that the envelope and notepaper you used had the picture from my profile on it! What a great personal touch!! I am sorry I didn't notice it before (stress brain) but it was totally awesome and I wish I could give you an extra heart for it!
