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,

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, sloths, llamas, spice mixes, bookmarks, cute socks, anything Godzilla

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

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.

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.
