About Me

i definitely appreciate every/all my swap-bot mail, always & regardless, but kinds of postcards i especially like:

  • just people doing stuff
  • trees
  • food/outdoor markets
  • educational/interesting facts
  • vintage
  • funny/cheerful/cute
  • glaciers
  • children's book illustrations
  • fish
  • maps {of course!}
  • current events/interesting quotes

i am retired, volunteer & hard-of-hearing, so knit/crocheting,reading books, magazines & the internet help me pass the time enjoyably! otherwise, i like walking & getting out to possibly find little surprises & inspiration if i had cable tv with captions, i would be hooked on true-crime stories & docu- mentaries ... trying to learn anything & figure out what this world's about!

unfortunately, i am not much an artist, but i cherish creativity & do my best with snails on a limited budget (my splurge in life is simply "postage" for trading with many good people all over the world!)

Favorite Books

my reading preferences:

  • nonfiction
  • true crime
  • travel
  • biography
  • humor

Favorite Movies

rarely do i see movies anymore, but here are a few i liked:

  • adaptation
  • crouching tiger/hidden dragon
  • meet the parents
  • being john malkovich
  • american beauty

Favorite Television

i yearn for those premium cable channels, but only have lousey broadcast, so don't watch much tv, either! if i get the opportunity, i like:

  • my name is earl
  • seinfield
  • get a life
  • 60 minutes/48 hours/dateline
  • intervention/snapped/no reservations

Favorite Crafts

crochet & knit dishcloths, so, cotton yarn is my favorite!

making envies

Favorite Music

music is part of my past: do not have the slightest concept of current groups today ... when my hearing was better, i loved:

60's/70's pop dance/electronic soul/rb

{fleetwood mac, beatles}

currently enjoying:

daft punk

misc. notes

reading another description of swap requirements, here is my attempt to summarize my

  • likes: nice stuff {stickers always appreciated!}

  • dislikes: bad stuff

  • wants: personal mail things

  • not wants: empty mailbox

sooo ... i'll try to remember to update this info more on occasion & please do not hesitate to let me know any further in regard to what you'd like to know about me, 'k?

Comment: Thanks so much for the unusual & fun selection of postcards, Neecie. I lived in Key West when the shrimp docks still looked like the picture on the old card. Now it's all touristy. Love the delicate paper your envie was made from. Extra ♥♥ for including a vintage B&W real photo and the lovely stamps & faux postage.
Response: v. pleased to satisfy an 'old timer' ... i cherish such fond memories, too, but find it sooo hard to remember so far back! have a lovely weekend & remainder of autumn ~

Comment: Thank you! What a fun trip to hear about.
Comment: Thank you for your card! To answer your questions... Coachella was fantastic. A guy I've been seeing went with me and I loved showing off my hometown. He met my family which I didn't really want but, what can you do. I didn't go to Bumbershoot, just couldn't justify such a high cost for a dwindling experience. And to hear what happened to those kids! I don't ever have an urge to go there. I have one tattoo that was not done by machine. I actually did it myself! A stick-and-poke--all I used was a sewing needle, india ink, thread, a shot glass to hold the ink, and then a lighter to constantly sterilize the needle. A little rose by my thumb! People joke that I have a prison tat, but I'm really proud of it. My nieces are great! They just visited a couple weeks ago. I don't usually get emotional after family visits but I was crying all night after they left! I'm trying to get them to come up on their next school holiday. And yep...same job. Same sh*t different day? And how are YOU?? Hope you and your husband are well and continuing your fun mini vacations! Thank you for the card you sent. Happy summer to you.
Comment: I love the letter of explanation. Thanks
