About Me

About my 3 ratings. They are all fair ratings. I have made up the swap I didn't send and resent 2 that I trusted someone else to take to the post, but the swaps were sent over a year late, a year and a half in one case due to communications and negotiations.

I've learned my lesson and plan my swaps for bordelaire type intrusions now.

April 10,2019 life has been chaos. Living in an RV just me and my dogs. Retired from being a live in caregiver. Miss it, but I do not miss the insecurity of homelessness being around the corner all the time. So I moved for the last time into an RV. I am usually parked on family land, but travel a bit as my new job allows. I love being able to travel more and I love the stability it gives me not relying on anyone else for my place to live! I write in the mornings with a cup of tea or coffee surrounded by nature. It is the completion of a lifetime dream of mine and brings me such peace and happiness.

Doing security work when doc will allow. Diagnosed with sjogrens. Explained a lot! But now trying to learn to live with it.

I'm also an online tutor, guest lecturer and syllabus creator for a homeschooling co-op.

I have 2 sons, 2 daughters, 13 grandsons, 2 granddaughters.

Lots of bonus kids.

Jazz, my service dog keeps me happy and healthy. He's a black lab and is trained for diabetes and PTSD.

Looking for

A special long term pen pal. Must not mind multiple day long rambling letters about everything including my health, finances. Ext ext. Some will be pretty and decorated. Not all. Some will take a while, some will be fast. .

Want to trade junk journals, mail art, bookmarks, pocket letters, and always looking for new creative outlets.
