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: Thank you so much for your letter. I hope you have a lovely day!
Comment: Oh. My. Goodness! I've never gotten teary from a swap before...but you somehow opened the flood gates! WOW! I am in awe. Your swap has made my year! Thank you for showing me such kindness. Thank you for demonstrating that you care. Thank you for taking time to get to know me. Thank you for sending me pieces of home that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you for reminding me there is good in the world, and life is worth living, even if just to share it with them. Being so far from like-minded kinfolk recently has made me feel lost in a big sea of confusion. I have heart ache quite literally sometimes, and so I try to keep myself locked up inside like some hermit...these hot summer days all the more so. Which is bad for me, because I need my "green" time outdoors. I guess all my connection to others has been here (in swapbot land) recently, and I didn't know how significantly this changes my emotional state, until now. I am having the epiphany why this silly swapping thing is important to me. For a connection. Just like this one. So, thank you so very deeply for reaching out to my heart to say my life matters and that I'm not lost in this sea alone. I needed this reminded. THANK YOU FOR BEING ON SWAPBOT!
Response: golly gee whiz, i can agree wholeheartedly with you on those many fine points, but it is kinda shocking whatever i did ... it was just what i usually try to do to meet a swap requirement, but yeah, i think you were a special partner that inspired me & i happened to have the things that made you happy: it’s a win-win for each of us! keep open to the good stuff of life ... it truly is a challenge for me, too! take care <3!

Comment: It's hilarious to me that you sent a card of Ocean Shores. Unfortunate that our beach towns are sh*tholes! :( By chance did you ever receive my last letter, sent May '18? We fell out with pen paling but I hope it wasn't my fault.
