About Me

I am easily amused and also pretty easy to please. I have a soft spot for animals, especially kittens. I love colors in pink, blue and purple ranges, especially together/combinations. I like reading witty, personal stuff. When I'm in the mood, I like to go to junk shops, thrift stores and yard sales to get things -- locally and on trips, too. I tend to lean left but try to stay open-minded. It does not bother me that my friends and I often have different opinions. I believe in live/let live as long as nobody's getting hurt. PLEASE: no glitter, thanks!

Comment: Hi Lou! How wonderful to have you as my partner and I very much enjoyed your letter! The wildflowers sound awesome, I would love to see them! It is good you are happy with using your phone for taking photos and get great shoots! Not all phone cameras are created equal, sadly! I think mine does ok but I love the photos I get with my "real" camera! LOL! That is a bummer about the falls being dammed up for the very affluent and the it is affecting tourism - hopefully things will get worked out for everyone! I love the animal stickers as well! We went to Wilsterm Wilderness Park in IN and got to hang out with elephants and giraffe and were told that zebras are really dangerous - I never knew! We are traveling to Mexico in October and back to CO in November, so lots still going on! I love traveling, so I am good with it! LOL! Thanks for hosting such a fun swap, I really enjoyed it! All the best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Hi thanks for the photo card and stickers. Yes, I have been to St Louis but not to the Arch, I know, I'm a bad Midwesterner. "Meet me in St. Louie, Louie" is a great song and I will probably been humming it all night now. ha ha Rich

Comment: Hi Lou! Thanks for your newsy fun letter. I enjoyed reading it. What a great article. I am definitely one of those types who dislikes phones so embrace Facebook and email since I'm more of a writer and like writing my words more than speaking them. I do have one friend who phones me occasionally and we talk a long time, but she's the only one I do that with since she does most of the talking! My mom used to love the phone and could talk for hours on it. I even wrote a memoir piece about her after she died and how I wished I could talk to her again. She died when she was on the phone about to talk to me on November 16, 2015, so that was quite shocking, but at least she went quick and didn't suffer. I do miss her and my dad who died one year ago today. PS Thanks for all those cute animals stickers, too! Thanks for the swap. Cathy
