About Me

January 29, 2023. The postcard I added to postcards traveling the world #69 was returned right back to me, it did not travel, and I was asked to put a stamp on it for myself next time. I am sad and confused.

January 17, 2023 Going back over old swaps. Some are expired. I hope to be better this year at keeping up with rating and checking on being rated.

November 8, 2022, want to let y'all know, it is taking average 6 weeks to get a postcard from here to the USA.

November 1, 2022, buried one of my 3 cats. Today November 4 buried the 2nd of my 3 cats. A type of "cat leukemia". :( Today the 3rd one was checked out. She does not have it. She is getting shots to protect her from it. To go from 3 to one in such a short time hurts horribly.

Had the funeral for our 100-year-old friend! He was/is awesome and sorely missed already. 10/10/2022

September 25, 2022 I am better. I have joined a few swaps. I am so tired but working every day since April will do that. It has been rough. I am grateful for what I have and what I don't have.

My dad had back surgery, he passed away, the news I got is his body wasn't strong enough to recover from the surgery. He was almost 81. The hits just keep coming. . .my husband's older (75-year-old) brother had his leg removed, he is in hospice care and not expected to live, alcoholism combined with diabetes. August 18, 2022, he died today. Today was the funeral of a 47-year-old mentally handicapped fellow. He came to the store every day, made silly jokes, improved my day and mood. He was in hospice for about a month and died of a heart attack. No internet at home for 9 days so far. Hours on the phone with the provider, a new router and still nothing. Tomorrow an electrician is coming. . .updated 8-8-2022 (I'm using the internet at work on my break) 25 August a terrifying storm passed over the island, I do not remember such a furious storm, the loudness and amount of thunder was scary and lightening, WOW, took out most of the phone service and fried most of the internet routers on the island.

October 26, 2021. . .my dad mailed me some blank Christmas cards from California, USA. . they arrived today, June 29th, 2022!!! To make it worse, the cards are mildewed and stuck together!!!

The mail, uuuggghh, I mailed a postcard to the USA it took about 5 weeks. During that time, I re-sent to my partner and took only about 2 weeks. It makes no sense! I drop them off inside the main post office to a clerk or outside thd building!!!??? Sorry! June 7, 2022

I get mail only once a week.

I have 2 threes'; I am ashamed of this and sad. I can give no explanation.

I married a Greek/American and moved to Greece with him.


I am a Christian. I attend a Church here where I live.

PLEASE, notify me if you don't get what I sent, I will re-send ASAP!

I am married with 3 children and 1 grand baby!

I have 3 cats. As of November 4. 2022 I have only one cat. :(

POSTCARDS: I love postcards such as recipes, turtles, frogs, squirrels, flowering plants, flowers, any from any movie, ad cards if they are funny or clever, bible verses, UNESCO sites, freebies, Stay Calm and..., Twilight series (loved the books and the first movie, liked the other movies), Game of Thrones books, loved them, any from any TV series, any holiday anytime of the year, cupcakes, cakes, tea or coffee, printed with encouragement. PLEASE, send any postcard you want. I have a VERY limited choice for sending.

TEA: I prefer NOT to receive green tea because I don't like it. I also do not chamomile tea. I DO LIKE to try flavors that are not common.

Burgundy and Pink are my favorite colors.

I love flowers, flowering bushes, flowering vines. Especially if they smell good. All Cacti but again if they bloom, even better.

Texas and Oregon are my favorite states.

I like sending and getting snail mail of any kind.

Tex-Mex food is my favorite, 2nd favorite is Greek.

I like reading. I read almost every book that comes my way. I keep one in different places so I can always have one available when I have time to read. ha ha ha

Comment: I love the architecture on this postcard. I hope it dosen't take too long to find somewhere new, or prove to be too stressful. Good luck.

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful postcard! I appreciate the resend. This time of year is hard on postcards, I think! It seems many of them get lost somewhere over the Atlantic. I hope you are having a Merry Holiday season and that the New year brings you lots of joy!
Response: ty, did you get the others?
Comment: Hello Debra! I envy you for having such a cute puppy with you. Our dogs are grown up already, but still our cute babys of course. Well go to South Yorkshire in Spring hopefully. The U.K. has so many beautiful places. Have a wonderful holiday there. I hope to swap again with you soon. Feel invited to my postcard swaps as well. A happy new year for you and your family.

Response: Thank you for the heart. I didn't make it to the UK in 2022 but maybe this year.

Comment: Thank you for the cute postcard of the kitties from Greece. I am so sorry to hear about the kitties. Such a great loss. I buried one of my cats a year and a half ago and still miss her so much as does my other kitty.
Response: You are welcome. My husband still won't let me talk about Stripey or Mini and a part of me still waits for them to come home. Loss is painful. Thank you for you kind words..
Comment: Thanks for this beautiful postcard! Do they use donkeys a lot in Greece? Where have you moved to? I hope the move has been smooth and you are getting settled into your new place! I would love to see pictures! Stay safe and healthy! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: You are welcome. Thank you for your kind words. We lost the lease and will not be moving our shop. To have an income we are remodeling and renting out part of our home to tourists.
