About Me

Updated 10/1/20.

Happy Fall!!

Happy Halloween!

Everyone please stay safe during this difficult time.

I will no longer be doing the number of swaps that I used to do. I used to do 20 swaps every month. I have made a decision to cut back on a permanent basis. I'm not getting any younger and cannot do as much as I used to do. I hope everyone understands.
