About Me

Hi, I'm Georgia.

I'm a 50 something wife and mom of 3 grown children. I sufferer from multiple chronic illnesses and mail makes me feel better. I am also a postcard junkie and really need to stay off EBay :-) I've added vintage postage as an addiction. There is no hope for me.

I'm hoping to get back to at least one fabric/sewing craft. I was able to do a small locker hook project without feeling lots of pain. I hope to continue doing those.

In my real life, I'm a retired computer geek for a medium sized city.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness". --- Dave Berry

Family and Pets

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Norm, for more than 33 years. We have 3 children. Our oldest is 36 and has 2 children of her own. Our son is 29 and our youngest non binary child is 25

We also have a mini Australian Shepherd, Shamus, and a MUTT Ari

Favorite Books

I love lots of different types of books. My all time favorite books are:

  • To Kill a Mockingbird

  • The LOTR Trilogy

  • The Discworld Series

  • So You Want To Be a Wizard Series

  • Harry Potter

  • Pride and Prejudice

Favorite Music

I like the following

  • Paul Simon

  • Moody Blues

  • Joni Mitchell

  • Anything Celtic

Favorite Television

  • Dr Who

  • How I Met Your Mother

  • Castle

  • Criminal Minds

  • History Channel things about Rome and Greece

Postcards

Because of my chronic illnesses and the fact that I'm still working full time, postcards and penpals are about all the swapping I can do. There's also that pesky problem of being without artistic talent :-) My pen-pals get computer typed letters part of the time.

I've got quite a build up of unused cards so I have things available to match what people like since I'm also on Postcrossing. When I say quite a build up, I mean I may have a problem. Is there a 12 step program for this?

I have acquired some vintage and not-quite vintage cards off ebay so don't be surprised if you get one from me in a swap. I tend to look for people who ask for vintage unless it matches really well with what you are asking for.

Now, as for what I like--landscapes, map cards, foreign attractions, animals especially puffins and penguins, really anything goes. I like humor cards. I like vintage myself but I also like bright, bold, new stuff. I guess I don't fit any single mold.

Things that make me happy

  • Puffins and Penguins

  • Peacocks

  • Owls

  • Vintage Postcards (other vintage papers, too)

  • Handmade Envelopes

  • Note cards to use especially museum art cards

  • Stationery

  • Favorite colors are teal, green, blue, and gold

  • K-cups for coffee

  • Loose black teas

  • Washi/Deco tape

  • Butterflies

  • Fabric for locker hooking

Religion and Politics

I debated with myself about including this section but I think it has a place since I'm looking for pen-pals and some people care about these topics very deeply.

I'm a Christian but I believe that each person's beliefs are their own responsibility.

I'm a member of the Christian Left. I do think that the Right wing in the United States has left Jesus's teachings behind. I won't debate it with someone who doesn't believe that (see above).

I also don't feel that there is a problem supporting Gay rights and being a Christian. Jesus never preached against being Gay. I think many Christians have taken a few verses out of context and turned it into a vendetta. In any case, I believe in the separation of Church and State and I don't think the definition marriage in the United States should be controlled by churches. At the same time, I don't think a church should have to marry any couple they don't want to--that whole separation of Church and State thing. An obvious solution would be a recognized civil marriage and a separate religious marriage for those who want it.

I have a whole lot of other left wing beliefs which may upset people on the right. However, I have no problem leaving those discussions out of pen pals letters (see your beliefs are your own above). But if you can't, it's probably best if we just fulfill the swap requirements and move on.

Peace and Joy

By and large, I have had a wonderful experience on Swapbot. There have been a few exceptions to this but I try to not let those people color my view of Swapbot.

Just wanted to say, Hi, and that I love your funny pictures on your profile! The chronic pain pic. hits it right on the nail, the next pic. is a great reminder for many people in our world, the brain fog pic. is too cute and the Shakespearian Style Hokey Pokey is now something I'm going to incorporate into an activity for a Christmas game I designed for friends & family. ~ So funny!
