About Me

Just had to take a spontaneous trip out of town - sorry was a way for 4 days - I'm home now and if I missed anything - let me know. Chemo brain is real LOL HAHAH!! Hugs Gabi

Happy Swapping

I'm Gabi.. a 1940s and 1950s living historian. My husband and I own a WWII Traveling museum and do quite a few events during the year.

I love the neat and tidy look of 1940s and 1950s fashion as well as the music from that Era. My husband and I are swing dancers and attend quite few events each month!

8/21/18 My computer crashed and destroyed the drivers (No idea what that is) so I had it at Apple for a few days and it's not repairable. So here I am home with a brand new computer. I like the new computer but nothing I saved is on it. None of my bookmarks, log ins, passwords etc.. that's so frustrating!! UGH I'm not ignoring anyone... I simply wasn't able to access online to get in here. So now Im setting things up -and the first place I logged in was SWAP-BOT. LOL

Comment: thank you for the super awesome package! All of them are perfect, the 2 P's are my ultimate faves, especially the ParisVSNewYork card. But the others are super cool too! (btw, I'm very chill with the swap deadlines, so don't stress about it if we happened to swap in the future, I won't bite for some delay, especially if it was for a more gorgeous package. Usually I do not even check the dates, because most of the letters cross the ocean and I don't expect anything in weeks. hahah). That inema bulding is really beautiful, I loved these type of buildings when I was in the states, although they are really babies, the building I live in is older (and mine is quite young in Budapest)
Comment: Thank you!!

Comment: Thank you for the King Kong vs. Godzilla card. I like all the old monster movies and the sci-fi movies from the 50's but my favorites are the Star Trek movies and series. I am watching them on Amazon prime when there is nothing else to watch.
