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: The Rufous Hummingbird is awesome, especially when perched under the words Big Game Alaska. We have them in breeding season, and when the sun hits the boys just right, they look like little flying koi. (Ooops, I got the two cards mixed up, sorry!)

Comment: I too found the book to be an interesting read.mybtake on the ending… While I was first reading the ending I was confused for a moment because it goes over a part we already read a few chapters previously but then once I realized that, and I got over the shock of betrayal, I realized it was an act of love for her friend. She didn’t know how to save her any other way. Thanks for the book themed goodies!

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.
