I've started a group: Altered Playing Cards Only (APCO) --join us, won't you?
Hello, I live amidst the cornfields in East Central Illinois, USA.
I love travel, so tell me about where you're from!
Camping and going to live concerts are things I do.
I exchange loads of postcards, and trying my hand at stamp-collecting. I love swapping ATCs and APCs--I host an ATC/APC swap group via Instagram.
--I weigh all outgoing mail; if I ever have postage due, let me know, and I will amend the issue!
--I click on "sent item" when I've put a stamp on the envelope and put it in the mailbox. If it's in the evening or on a Sunday, then the date stamped will be a day later.
--If you aren't able to send something on time to me, just send me a note--you don't have to tell me why, just say it will be late--life happens!
I adore music, and would love to hear about your favorite songs/artists. My favorite music includes Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, Wilco, Phish, and most classic rock in general.
Last year, we saw Brandi Carlisle in Nashville and it was amazing.
I fall asleep to a playlist called "sad cello" and now, "midnight thunderstorms."
This is going to be the year (2023) of Vitamin String Quartet. They've been great for when I need to focus on work tasks.
Outlander. British television in general. Twin Peaks. Black Mirror. Breaking Bad. Better Call Saul. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Bridgerton. Doctor Who.
House of the Dragon and Rings of Power were fun--lots of folks who have "read the books" nitpicked a lot, but as a one of those book-readers, I thought the shows were great.
I read a lot; any recommendations?
