About Me

"I have the worlds largest seashell collection. You may have seen it, I keep it spread out on beaches all over the world."...Steven Wright

"The world, as a rule, does not live on beaches..." F. Scott Fitzgerald

i love these quotes...the first because it expresses my love of shells and beaches...the second because i love the Fitzgerald and i am one of those who is not living on a beach..although i wish i did.... I have a home in a rural area north of houston south of dallas and east of austin.... lots of beautiful oaks and pines ...it has a lovely pond lined with water lilies…we are now living south of Houston near Galveston…but visit our country house occasionally… i have always enjoyed expressing myself in art and i taught art at the h.s. level... i've lived in several states and in panama for a few years...my friends, like my "shell collection," are scattered around the world... i prefer cool colors... especially teal At present i have one cat and the donkeys are living with a cousin in Louisiana … I miss Frankie my youngest donkey

••• I need to add that recently I failed to hit the "Save Ratings" bottom when rating a swap and my partner never got a rating while I thought I had rated her swap... This happened once before... So please if you do not receive a rating from me let me know ... I save all my swaps and will re-rate as soon as I find out... Thanks so much
