About Me

I'm an eclectic eccentric great grandma enjoying the golden years with my cats (and my SO). I like to make ATC's, write haiku, make soap, make quilts and other fiber art. I like gardening, growing orchids, and camping. I practice Reiki, aromatherapy, and other alternative health methods.

I'm a second-generation stamp collector and have been collecting both WW and US for 70 years. I prefer stamps before the self-adhesive era as my world stamp album only goes to 1970 and my US album goes to 1975. I'm currently in the process of upgrading my US album to 2000.

I'm not too fussy about ATCs that I receive.I like variety.

I don't send extras and I don't need any so please don't feel you have to send anything. I give hearts for honest effort not extras.

I don't care for politics, organized religion (lifelong pagan), dogs, avocados, and people who put exclamation points at the end of every sentence..

Favorite Music

Folk/World music, 40s Big Band, Grateful Dead

Don't like rap and heavy metal; mostly like music before 1975 or so.

Favorite Books

Anything by Michener, especially liked The Source. I worked in libraries for almost 50 years so have read a lot. After I retired I put down the books and started living. Life is getting shorter -- I have to make my mark now. I do like time travel and historical novels but I consider historical to be at least 100 years in the past; not 1970.

Anything by Preston and Child

Favorite Movies

Mostly oldies like on TCM. Gone with the Wind, San Francisco, Titanic, Harry Potter, and too many more to mention.

Not crazy about science fiction, horror, violence.

Favorite Television

House, NCIS, CSI, Murdoch, Gray's Anatomy, Disjointed, Shameless, Outlander, Virgin River, Shtisel, Brit comedies, Documentaries, Historical movies, etc, etc, etc.

I don't like violence, horror, science fiction, cartoons

Favorite Crafts

Quilting, ATCs, Fiber arts, Embroidery, Stamp collecting, Soapmaking Silverplate butter knives, Antique/vintage sewing machines, Gardening, Camping.

Comment: Hello! Thank you for the stamps! I was really excited to see the postmark on the envelope read "Sacramento". I will be going there this Fall to study for one quarter. I'm really excited! I agree with what you said about stamp collecting. It's really easy to come back to after a while and doesn't require a lot of commitment, which is why it has stuck with me for a very long time. It's also really fun to receive stamps from swaps. It's like opening a mystery box! You never know what you'll get, but you'll almost always find something new and interesting for the collection. Indentifying plants is really fun! I wish I have a plant guide to help me identify plants here in Indonesia. I haven't found one that I like yet. Anyways, thank you again for the stamps and the note! Take care <3
Response: Maybe you will be the one to create the plant guide for Indonesia :-)
