About Me

Profile Edited 12/5/2020

We live on one of the remaining dairy farms in Northern Virginia. Between us we have 7 kids & 14 grandchildren. On our farm we have cows, chickens, ducks, geese, bunnies, turkeys and cats! I love being a Gramma and it's the most important thing to me!

I love to read & dance! I’ve belly danced and gotten back into line dancing. Dancing & gardening are my hobbies. I love to play board games my favorites are Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, & any board games I can play with my grand-kids. I also love to read! Right now I'm reading mostly non-fiction.

I love nature & consider that my religion. I love being in the garden and getting my hands dirty. I love all my animals on the farm. They all have wonderful personalities. I have flower gardens & vegetable gardens. I tried raised beds & hale bale gardening this year.

I am very Patriotic and love my country & those protecting it! I grew up a Navy brat. So please do not ever send me anything that puts down the USA. I would never do that to you.

Hosting & Rating

Hosting Swaps- I take hosting very seriously. I go through all profiles of swappers who sign up for my swaps. Please do not take it personally if I ban you from a swap. I'm just being careful & want to make my swaps a fun & safe swap for everyone.

Ratings- If you ever receive something from me with postage due. Please let me know & I will send you the postage.
For the 1 I have, I have sent two postcards to replace the one she didn't get. She hasn't been on here since 11/2011. I have been an angel for swaps to try & makeup for this one.

Please let me know if you have not received your swap from me before rating a 1 or 3. I will gladly make another one.

I am an easy going person, just let me know if you need more time for a swap and I'll work with you.
