About Me

mystery reader, baseball fan (Brewers are home team), quilter, nature stamping, animal shelter volunteer, frogs, cheezy 1950s movies, gardener , classic car owner. I review books about cars and Formula One racing.

Favorite music: classic rock (Young Rascals, Yardbirds), Motown (Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Al Green), bluegrass (Sam Bush, Alison Krauss and Union Station)

Favorite films: anything by Mel Brooks, Monty Python, comedies with Walter Matthau, Blues Brothers

Favorite authors: nonfiction: David McCullough, Simon Winchester, Richard Preston, Paul Theroux, Jane Leavy, Jane and Michael Stern. Favorite mystery authors: S.J. Rozan, Julia Spencer Fleming, Robert B. Parker, Ed McBain, Donald Westlake, Joan Hess,

Favorite TV: Criminal Minds, CSI, Top Gear (BBC version), MST3K, Columbo, The Simpsons, Futurama, NCIS,Boston Legal

Postcards: especially like major and minor league ballparks, goofy ones with giant fish jumping in boats, Route 66, movies, strange tourist attractions.

ATCs: Recently got interested in these. Don't have any preferences at the moment; I just like to see what others can create.

Recipes: cookie recipes (every year I participate in a cookie exchange, make 70-80 dozen cookies). Like un-fussy recipes that produce a large batch of cookies.

Likes: Route 66, lenticulars (those things that used to come in Crackerjack boxes. We called them winkies When you tilt them one way they show a picture, when you tilt the other, the picture changes),cookie cutters, snowmen, CHOCOLATE, caramels, Peeps, sloths, llamas, frogs, spice mixes, bookmarks, cute socks, anything Godzilla.

Christmas favorites: animated films, classics, tv holiday specials. Snacks: anything chocolate.

Dislikes: religious material (but secular Christmas items are okay--snowmen, snowflakes, candy canes, cookies, reindeer, Santas, holly, wreaths, ornaments, trees, presents, doves, the words peace and joy)

Allergies: not allergic but they clash with my meds: grapefruit and salt substitutes, licorice

I own a cat named Lulu and used to own a Springer Spaniel and Golden Retrievers. We have three rescued pugs in the family. I always wanted to own a Newfoundland. I've been to seminars on cadaver dogs, search and rescue dogs.

Comment: Thank you for the postcard. Vancouver has been getting periodic snow dumping and then it rains after a couple days. A lot melts and goes away... only to end up snowing hard for a couple days again. =) Anyway, Happy New Year!!

Comment: Sorry for the late rate, thank you very much for the nice card. I grew up in the 80's and I loved to play with paper dolls. I still have my Princess Di book of paper dolls.

Comment: Hi, thank you for the pretty Christmas card! I like the book extras too. And thank you for telling me about your local birds! Water birds are so cool. I like to walk by a local lake with ducks but rarely see eagles or gulls there. Wishing you happy holidays!

Comment: Thank you for the kitty card. Enjoyed the picture and sticker too. My kitties also drink the water out of the tree stand. Never had a cat that tried to climb in the tree. Put plastic bulbs around the bottom. Just makes sense to me. Thanks again. Happy Holidays.

Hi, I see you like frogs, so I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining my Scales 'n' Tails group? Technically frogs have neither scales nor tails haha but the group is for all reptiles and amphibians :)

25 Days of Christmas in a Padded Envelope --- Just had to add that my two cats LOVE the two small toys and the munchies you sent for them. The toys made a big hit. Thank you for being so kind.

Hi Susan: I was just quickly looking over your profile and saw your profile picture. Well, it stopped me dead in my tracks because I was in hysterics laughing!!! That picture really made my day. I'm still trying to catch my breath after my fit of laughter...too funny!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thanks for the laugh :)
