About Me

I'm 58 years old, married for 29 years and still madly in love with my honey. We have two grown daughters, 2 grandsons, and 1 dog (Benny).

I always rate and I always send. If you don't receive something from me, please let me know and I can resend. I will do the same as this is a courtesy we all prefer.

I'm originally from North Dakota. I've lived in Minnesota for over 30 years. We still have friends and relatives there and visit them when we can.

I'm fascinated with junk and art journals. Love to see them and have just started making my own. I'm also making Zines and ATCs and love to see what others make.

My hobbies:

Reading, books, visiting bookstores, reading about books, libraries, museums. I love most things books and mail related (authors, stamps, bookstores, libraries, etc). I also enjoy doing genealogy, scrapbooking, rubber stamping and making ATCs, cards, booklets, junk journals.

Comment: Thank you for the Tree Postcard and note. Everyone in my family is okay for now. My son is the only one who has to go out for work as he is a Bus driver for the local transit authority. Me being retired I don't have to go out except for necessities. Stay safe.

Comment: What fun!! I enjoyed reading your notes and everything you put into this!! I'm hibernating in the woods where I live, 20 miles from nowhere, during this Corona virus mess. My older granddaughter and her boyfriend also live on the farm in their camper (she raises dairy goats and works full time)... today, her day off, they went for animal feed for her goats, my chickens and our dogs! We always have stuff here as our road floods and we occasionally are "stuck at home" during "normal" times... so it's no big deal for us as long as we can stay well. I intend to hibernate, though, as I'm 81 years old and do NOT need to be sick! You take care and stay well!! LOVE the journal!!
Response: Nice to hear from you! Glad to know you are able to self-isolate without difficulty. I have an 82-yr old aunt who lives on a farm in ND. Recently one of her sons was able to move back and help her with some of the work- snow plowing, lawn mowing, selling unused farm equipment , etc. It's nice you have someone there too! Happy swapping!

justmesks rated for WIYM: Flower postcard on Mar 13, 2020
Comment: Thank you for the unusual card. I've never seen one that you plant. Thanks also for the anniversary wishes. Fifty three years is a long time. So is your 29 years. Seems most people don't even try to make their marriage work these days.
