About Me

I am unable to join any swaps at this time. I have to stay in the traveling ones. I believe it would be unfair to others in these swaps. I will start joining other swaps ASAP. Enjoy your swaps folks, you never know what is going to hit you!

July 27. 2023 Postcard stamps are now double price from here. was 1 Euro about $1.10 is now 2 Euros about $2.20, I started to cry. Swap-bot and Postcrossing are my main and almost only hobbies. I will now have to cut way back. I am unemployed after 48 years of working.

June 10, 2023 My 3rd day with covid. 102 temperature 24 hours a day and so on, no electricity 2nd day, no internet the first day, today all that is working but I am not. All swaps sent on the 8th. My husband is negative and will return to work Monday.

June 5, 2023. . .my husband came home and went stright to bed. He didn't feel better the next day. Sadly he has caught the coronavirus again! He had all 3 shots! We have isolated ourselves. Our son brought some groceries and left them inside our gate. uuugghhh, what was the purpose of 3 shots???

May15, 2023 The main post office here is in the process of relocating. I hope my snail mail won't be late. It was closed last Friday and today. I dropped my swaps off in the boxes outside the old place. There is no boxes outside the new place.

May 8, 2023, struggling with tendinitis. One wrong move and I scream in pain. Trying everyday to get small jobs done without moving the rwrong way.

anuary 17, 2023 Going back over old swaps. Some are expired. I hope to be better this year at keeping up with rating and checking on being rated.

November 8, 2022, want to let y'all know, it is taking average 6 weeks to get a postcard from here to the USA.

November 1, 2022, buried one of my 3 cats. Today November 4 buried the 2nd of my 3 cats. A type of "cat leukemia". :( Today the 3rd one was checked out. She does not have it. She is getting shots to protect her from it. To go from 3 to one in such a short time hurts horribly.

Had the funeral for our 100-year-old friend! He was/is awesome and sorely missed already. 10/10/2022

September 25, 2022 I am better. I have joined a few swaps. I am so tired but working every day since April will do that. It has been rough. I am grateful for what I have and what I don't have.

My dad had back surgery, he passed away, the news I got is his body wasn't strong enough to recover from the surgery. He was almost 81. The hits just keep coming. . .my husband's older (75-year-old) brother had his leg removed, he is in hospice care and not expected to live, alcoholism combined with diabetes. August 18, 2022, he died today. Today was the funeral of a 47-year-old mentally handicapped fellow. He came to the store every day, made silly jokes, improved my day and mood. He was in hospice for about a month and died of a heart attack. No internet at home for 9 days so far. Hours on the phone with the provider, a new router and still nothing. Tomorrow an electrician is coming. . .updated 8-8-2022 (I'm using the internet at work on my break) 25 August a terrifying storm passed over the island, I do not remember such a furious storm, the loudness and amount of thunder was scary and lightening, WOW, took out most of the phone service and fried most of the internet routers on the island.

October 26, 2021. . .my dad mailed me some blank Christmas cards from California, USA. . they arrived today, June 29th, 2022!!! To make it worse, the cards are mildewed and stuck together!!!

The mail, uuuggghh, I mailed a postcard to the USA it took about 5 weeks. During that time, I re-sent to my partner and took only about 2 weeks. It makes no sense! I drop them off inside the main post office to a clerk or outside thd building!!!??? Sorry! June 7, 2022

I get mail only once a week.

I have 2 threes'; I am ashamed of this and sad. I can give no explanation.

I married a Greek/American and moved to Greece with him.


I am a Christian. I attend a Church here where I live.

PLEASE, notify me if you don't get what I sent, I will re-send ASAP!

I am married with 3 children and 1 grand baby!

I have 3 cats. As of November 4. 2022 I have only one cat. :(

POSTCARDS: I love postcards such as recipes, turtles, frogs, squirrels, flowering plants, flowers, any from any movie, ad cards if they are funny or clever, bible verses, UNESCO sites, freebies, Stay Calm and..., Twilight series (loved the books and the first movie, liked the other movies), Game of Thrones books, loved them, any from any TV series, any holiday anytime of the year, cupcakes, cakes, tea or coffee, printed with encouragement. PLEASE, send any postcard you want. I have a VERY limited choice for sending.

TEA: I prefer NOT to receive green tea because I don't like it. I also do not chamomile tea. I DO LIKE to try flavors that are not common.

Burgundy and Pink are my favorite colors.

I love flowers, flowering bushes, flowering vines. Especially if they smell good. All Cacti but again if they bloom, even better.

Texas and Oregon are my favorite states.

I like sending and getting snail mail of any kind.

Tex-Mex food is my favorite, 2nd favorite is Greek.

I like reading. I read almost every book that comes my way. I keep one in different places so I can always have one available when I have time to read. ha ha ha


Comment: Love your list! There are all kinds of little ground squirrels in my backyard. I saw some little ones running around back there today. I feel like the mom might've had babies because these were smaller than the usual ones I see. Hope you get your fish tank soon :)

Comment: Dear Debra, Thank you so much for your wonderful postcard with beautiful stamp. I loved to read about your favorite Y's and Z's, and I could have put all of them on my list, too :-) Yeehaw is the best :-) It makes me think of country music and line dance (which I love to do from the first day I started about 5 years ago:-)) I hope things have gotten less stressful for you, and I wish you all the best <3
Comment: Hello, Thanks so much for your nice letter. I hope the renovations are a success. Nice that you have so much family around you. You must live in a beautiful place, I have been dreaming about these clear waters. :)

bstrong rated for Traveling PC's World #78 on Aug 14, 2023
Comment: Received PC’s will forward them on. There are a couple of pretty cool ones in this batch. Wish we could have more then three months in Europe, I would go and check out Fira, be another one of the tourist LOL, although we travel on the fall and winter months to get away from our cold winters.
Response: Fall and Winter here is quiet. You can enjoy the views without the crowds. Many places stay open all year round now. Be sure to let me know if you swing by here.

Comment: Thank you so much for your beautiful postcard of Santorini and your list of likes <3 I like many of them, too, especially water, violets and vacation :-) Thank you for making my day today <3 I'm sorry to read about your dad, and I wanted to wish you lots of strength and all the best.
Response: Hi, you are welcome. Thank you for your kind words. It still doesn't seem possible that I won't ever hug him or hear him say girl again. The way he say girl always warmed my heart. I accept death is part of living but it sure hurts. I wish you love and health!

Comment: Hi Debra, always nice to get cards from Greece. I have no idea which is a lie, maybe about your father's birthday? Best regards, Rich
Response: Sadly I forgot to write down what I sent you. His birthday was December 31. New years Eve. lol I am sorry I didn't write them down.
Comment: Thanks for the chunk! I never received anything from Greece before. Sorry for the late rating, but I think it was at the bottom of our mailbox for a while...
Response: ha ha, it's okay, I hope you are well
