WARNING: TO PEOPLE EXPECTING A SWAP FROM ME!!!
I usually post pictures of Swaps that I have sent to my FLICKR account. If you are expecting a swap from me and do not want to see it ahead of time, do NOT look at my Flickr account.
Retired from the US Navy. Married, 3 grown kids, 6 grandchildren.
I am a Geocacher, Postcrosser, Letterboxer & Bookcrosser, fisherman and hunter.
I bowl, play racquetball, golf, and shoot competitively as a member of the I.D.P.A.
I like ALL kinds of music.
Classical, classic rock, country, jazz, blues, Hip-Hop, some Rap, gospel & YES ... even opera!
Favorites: Jack Johnson, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Ruthie Foster, John Mayer, Buddy Guy, Neil Young, The Decemberists, Eric Clapton, Garth Brooks, Alison Krauss, Traveling Wilburys, Mark Bryan, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Josh Groban, The Vaughn Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Sawyer Brown...
Grisham, John Sandford, Andrew Vachss, Stephen King, Stephen Ambrose, John Katz, Cop stories, Suspense, WW II History, Books about golfing (Not instructional books, but books about golfers and golfing stories.)
I RARELY miss Jeopardy! Favorites are LOST, Heroes, NCIS, and cop shows. I enjoy watching Pro & college football and basketball, though I'm not a big sport's nut. I just like any good game.
My work schedule is really weird, so I'm usually in bed by 8 PM, so the TV that I watch is often on tape delay. Maybe I need TIVO! LOL
Crafts ... Well! I'm not really what you would call a crafter, but I enjoy learning new things.
I have been a letterboxer for a few years and I have made some handmade rubber stamps, nothing extremely detailed, but not too bad either.
I recently had a POSTCROSSING card to send and could not find exactly the right card so I made my own. It turned out pretty well ... I think!
If there is something I don't know how to do and I want to try it, I get a book from the library or research on the internet, and I try it. If I send you something that I've never tried before, I hope that you won't be disappointed. I'll let you know if it is a first attempt, so PLEASE keep that in mind when you rate me. I am all heart and very enthusiastic anyway! I WON"T send you a piece of crap, I promise!
I don't know that I have FAVORITE crafts yet. I'm trying new things all the time. However, I favor:

You probably know more about what I need than I do. Maybe you can even push me in a new direction, but for now, my main interest is ATC's, so I am looking for:

Anything will do. I will be happy to have anything you think I could use that isn't listed. I'll update this when I learn more about what I'm trying to do.
