Need to take a few months off. When life settles down I'll be back.
I'm working through a year of changes, mostly bad. In December I had failed eye surgery that is took 9 months to correct, My daughter died unexpectedly in April, my husband had a stroke, and we have lost several of our senior cats. I am trying to stay positive about the future. Hopefully 2023 will be a kinder year. If I have forgotten something or done something not to the rules please message me and I will try to make it right.
I'm an eclectic eccentric great grandma enjoying the golden years with my cats (and my SO). I like to make ATC's, write haiku, make soap, make quilts and other fiber art. I like gardening, growing orchids, and camping. I practice Yoga, Reiki, aromatherapy, and other alternative health methods.
I'm a second-generation stamp collector and have been collecting both WW and US for 70 years. I prefer stamps before the self-adhesive era as my world stamp album only goes to 1970. I really appreciate US stamps from 1975 to 2000 as I recently upgraded my US album, however please do not send any Forever stamps. U.S. stamps have adhesive that is impossible to remove. Any ww stamps are loved.
I'm not too fussy about ATCs that I receive. I like variety.
I don't send extras and I don't need any so please don't feel you have to send anything. I give hearts for honest effort not extras.
I don't care for politics, organized religion, dogs, avocados, and people who put exclamation points at the end of every sentence..
Folk/World music, 40s Big Band, Grateful Dead, Classic rock, Classical some Country
Don't like rap and heavy metal; mostly like music before 1975 or so.
Anything by Michener, especially liked The Source. I worked in libraries for almost 50 years so have read a lot. After I retired I put down the books and started living. Life is getting shorter every day. I do like time travel and historical novels but I consider historical to be at least 100 years in the past; not 1970.
Anything by Preston and Child
Mostly oldies like on TCM. Gone with the Wind, San Francisco, Titanic, Harry Potter too many more to mention.
Not crazy about science fiction, horror, violence.
House, NCIS, CSI, Murdoch, Gray's Anatomy, Disjointed, Outlander, Virgin River, Shtisel, Brit comedies, Documentaries, Historical movies, etc, etc, etc.
My best-liked series have all ended so I'm looking (mostly without success) for new ones. Any suggestions?
I don't care for violence, horror, science fiction, cartoons
