Hi. I am a returning member of Swat-Bot from about eight years ago. I want to start swapping postcards again to start, then may add other types of swaps.

MUSIC: Classical, New Age, and Easy Listening, but I will listen to all types.

BOOKS: I read about 85 books a year, mostly series mysteries such as Anne Perry’s Victorian mysteries, Peter Robinson, J. D. Robb, and many British detective series.

MOVIES: Happy endings like Gifted, McFarland USA, Rudy, Letters to Juliette, and dark suspenseful thrillers like Suburbia, Sanctum, and Perfect Getaway.

TELEVISION: I rarely watch TV, but occasionally watch a series such as Downton Abbey or The Crown.

CRAFTS: Quilting (starting on a project making blankets and quilts for homeless vets and pregnancy resource centers), crocheting dishcloths, making my own body and home care products with essential oils....painting with acrylics (abstracts or just playing with color)...making greeting cards. I also dabble in photography and am finally taking a class.

I am a retired preschool teacher (two-year-olds) and still sub on occasion. I am married to a retired professor and we love going on road trips. This past summer we took Route 66 to California. The previous summer we toured Yosemite NP and all the major National parks out west. This is a good way to collect postcards!

I will be adding more to my profile but I just rejoined and want to get started swapping postcards.

I’m very appreciative of all I receive as long as it is what the swap required.

POSTCARD LIKES: Where you live.....Anything strange or unusual ...Art & Museum cards....Out-of-the ordinary places, especially small town or village...Vintage, or reproduction vintage...city skylines.

I would prefer one of your choice, but please don’t send one with worn edges and bent corners.

No handmade unless swap is specifically for homemade PCs.

Real photo please instead of drawings or cartoons,

I would like my postcards NAKED unless the swap requires an envelope.

DISLIKES: None, as long as it is in good taste. Again, I want it to be your choice.

GENERAL THEMES I LOVE: squirrels...sloths...goats...chickens...gnomes... flowers... birds...benches...chairs...windows...doors

TEAS: Any kind or brand but adore English Breakfast.

LITTLE THINGS: Seasonal or holiday themes (any time of year). Seasonal stickers, unused postcards, notecards

I will never flake and will rate as soon as I receive your mail. If a problem arises with a swap,I’ll do my best to resolve it without drama.

My mail is often picked up as late as 7:30 pm, so the postmark on my mail date may show the following day.

Comment: At the moment my computer won't let me give you a heart. Not sure why, but when I can change it, I will. I have seen Homicide Hunter. Joe Kenda is a good guy. Someone to look up to. Have a great day and happy swapping......

Comment: I have that same issue - every time I get sent on travel for work I end up completely changing my eating habits and it takes me FOREVER to get back on track D: but the vegan diet does do wonders! :)

Comment: Karen! Your M is for Mailbox postcard arrived last Thursday (the 12th) and it is delightful! And. . . You've read all 40-odd books in the In Death series by J.D. Robb? I'm pretty sure I got sidetracked from it somewhere around book 20, so I have quite a ways to go to get current! (I'm also missing a number of the later books from my collection. I need to get caught up!) :-) Then TODAY your postcard of the Pigeon got to me! (To be fair, it could have arrived on Friday or Saturday and just been sitting in the PO Box, waiting to be retrieved.) I LOVE this image! (Please bite your tongue, though, when saying that Mass Market Paperbacks seem to be history. I want them to stick around until the end of my life, at least!) Thank you so much for sharing both of these postcards with me! :-) <3
