About Me

I see many people have this disclaimer, so I will add one too. Please let me know if you haven't received anything from me, or need me to send postage because I didn't put enough on. I want this to be fun for me and the people I swap with, I don't want to be a problem. Just contact me if I need to make something right.

I'm a retired mother of boy/girl twins and enjoy getting things in the mail. I live near the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia with my husband, although I grew up in New Jersey. I say I'm in exile here, I would go back if I could afford to do that.

In my previous NJ life, I got married in 1991, and worked as a chemical lab technician, a useful career in industrial NJ. I worked for Anheuser-Busch in their baker's yeast plant; and then for Union Carbide, after their disaster at Bhopal, in R&D wire and cable. I really liked that job, but my husband was very unhappy in his job and got a job offer in Virginia. I was seven months pregnant with twins at the time, and unlike NJ, VA is not known for its industrial livelihood, so besides raising children and a couple of part time jobs, I haven't worked in years.

I'm an avid needleworker, I do cross stitch, needlepoint and surface embroidery. I enjoy sending and receiving postcards, I like almost all types of cards, even boring ones.

I read A LOT. I mostly like cozy mysteries, but have drifted into more hard core detective novels, and the occasional nonfiction nature book.

I look forward to meeting and swapping with everyone.

Allergies

Food allergies: I don't have any life threatening allergies, but I avoid soy, dairy and peanut products.

Likes and Dislikes

Likes and dislikes: I'm interested in many things, and I'm a Gemini, so my likes can change in an instant. I'm really struggling with what to write here, I like lots of things.

A person can't go wrong with me if it involves black tea, anything to do with tea, interesting buildings, historical places, animals, gardens, sunrises and sunsets, nature, and funny sayings. I really don't want to discourage creativity, so remember these are guidelines, I'm interested in everything.

I'm currently reading mysteries with food and/or pets. My current reads include two tea mysteries, and I'm having trouble keeping them separate in my mind. It's actually kind of fun, and I'm thinking of adding a third tea mystery to mix it up. I'm finally reading, actually listening to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I'm waiting for the evil to start. I'm cross stitching an Alice in Wonderland themed pattern, and one with a fantasy castle.

I don't like cruelty, anything with graphic violence, or jokes making fun of something a person can't help like ethnicity or a birth defect.

Comment: Beautiful New England leaves postcard! Thank you! I want to stay in the log cabin in the photo. I am also more productive once Fall comes. August is miserable in Houston! I love the fall barn stamp you chose too. That’s perfect for the fall theme! 🧡🍁🍂🤎

Comment: Weird indeed! The RNA of an intestinal virus, and hanging Dutchmen as postcards are both very baffling! The greeting card is an odd one as well. Thank you for all the weird!!
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you can appreciate the weird that comes my way.

Comment: Hello Judy, thank you for your note! Today is the first day of Autumn but it doesn't feel like it. It's in the mid 70's but VERY humid today. The leaves are barely starting to change, it's usually October for us as well before we get really good color.
Response: Me too, although it is a bit cooler now.

Comment: I love this card! It reminds me off the BBC PBS Mystery series! I keep track of the Australian Bat sanctuary. Flying Foxes are so darn cute! Here in Alaska, we only have Little Brown Bats. They are tiny. Thanks too for the extras! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Thank you for the bridge tally card. I appreciate the foreign stamps, the flamingo and palm tree scatter, Disney stickers and photograph. I enjoyed reading your letter. My husband, our daughter, son in law and 15 year old granddaughter are going to Disneyland the week of Thanksgiving. My husband and I haven't been there in over 20 years and I think it's been about 30 years since our daughter has been. My husband and I went to Disney World in June. It was so much fun!
Response: I've never been to Disneyland, it is on my list though. Have a wonderful time!
