About Me

mystery reader, baseball fan (Brewers are home team), quilter, nature stamping, animal shelter volunteer, frogs, cheezy 1950s movies, gardener , classic car owner. I review books about cars and Formula One racing.

Favorite music: classic rock (Young Rascals, Yardbirds), Motown (Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Al Green), bluegrass (Sam Bush, Alison Krauss and Union Station)

Favorite films: anything by Mel Brooks, Monty Python, comedies with Walter Matthau, Blues Brothers

Favorite authors: nonfiction: David McCullough, Simon Winchester, Richard Preston, Paul Theroux, Jane Leavy, Jane and Michael Stern. Favorite mystery authors: S.J. Rozan, Julia Spencer Fleming, Robert B. Parker, Ed McBain, Donald Westlake, Joan Hess,

Favorite TV: Criminal Minds, CSI, Top Gear (BBC version), MST3K, Columbo, The Simpsons, Futurama, NCIS,Boston Legal

Postcards: especially like major and minor league ballparks, goofy ones with giant fish jumping in boats, Route 66, movies, strange tourist attractions.

ATCs: Recently got interested in these. Don't have any preferences at the moment; I just like to see what others can create.

Recipes: cookie recipes (every year I participate in a cookie exchange, make 70-80 dozen cookies). Like un-fussy recipes that produce a large batch of cookies.

Likes: Route 66, lenticulars (those things that used to come in Crackerjack boxes. We called them winkies When you tilt them one way they show a picture, when you tilt the other, the picture changes),cookie cutters, snowmen, CHOCOLATE, caramels, Peeps, sloths, llamas, frogs, spice mixes, bookmarks, cute socks, anything Godzilla.

Christmas favorites: animated films, classics, tv holiday specials. Snacks: anything chocolate.

Dislikes: religious material (but secular Christmas items are okay--snowmen, snowflakes, candy canes, cookies, reindeer, Santas, holly, wreaths, ornaments, trees, presents, doves, the words peace and joy)

Allergies: not allergic but they clash with my meds: grapefruit and salt substitutes, licorice

I own a cat named Lulu and used to own a Springer Spaniel and Golden Retrievers. We have three rescued pugs in the family. I always wanted to own a Newfoundland. I've been to seminars on cadaver dogs, search and rescue dogs.

Comment: Thank you for the very weird postcard. Can't quite figure that one out???? It'll keep me thinking for awhile! You have good memories of summer. I remember going camping one 4th of July, Dad wrapped the hot dogs in foil and threw them on the fire and they blew up. That was our fireworks for that year! Take care!

Comment: Thank you very much again, for another great PC & of fireworks! Which I really love! We got to see an awesome display of fireworks, at our Canton, PA fair grounds on July 4th. It was beautiful! Anyway, I couldn't quite make out what your favorite wolf is. Because some fool postmarked right over what you wrote. How nice, huh? My favorite wolf is Jason Samoa in the movie "Wolves". Good movie!
Response: My favorite wolf is Angua from Terry Pratchett's Disworld. Also in Good Omens, recently at tv series. A vegetarian werewolf. Susan

Comment: Well, I agree with you. Ugly in every way. Why would someone make a postcard of that? I'll be sure not to buy that boxed set of postcards!

Comment: Thank you very much for the Vera Rubin postcard. Astronomy was the only part of physics in school which I liked (and which I was not as bad at as I was normally in physics) :-)

Hi, I see you like frogs, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining my Scales 'n' Tails group? Technically frogs have neither scales nor tails haha but the group is for all reptiles and amphibians :)

25 Days of Christmas in a Padded Envelope --- Just had to add that my two cats LOVE the two small toys and the munchies you sent for them. The toys made a big hit. Thank you for being so kind.
