About Me

UPDATE: November 28, 2021: Recently lost a friend in a horrible car crash. Makes me realize again how short life is. Charges pending. On the upside we have been going to concerts. Really lifts me up. Got to meet Nita Strauss and see the final Monkees tour. Alice Cooper was my best front row experience EVER. Fab Four and Clint Black were very good. More in the next 2 months.

UPDATE: 5-2-21 I am still diamond painting and now looking forward to going to concerts and traveling once again. It feels good to be really retired. My new kittens are a joy. I miss my parents. Life is precious...don't waste it.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 24, 2020: I have been diamond painting since March and I entered 3 in our local fair. Happy to say I got grand champion with my YODA. Jack got reserve grand for his tractor made from misc metal parts.

UPDATE JULY 21, 2020): My Dad passed away today. He would have been 90 in December. Now there is just me...and my stepsister who was able to be with him last night. Cherish your loved ones. My mom passed away in October of 2018. I miss her every day. Let your mom know how much you appreciate her. This pandemic would have been hard on her..


UPDATE: In 2019 I met Chris Kroeze, Derek Jones, Alice Cooper and Todd Rundgren. I got to see Blake Shelton, and his awesome guests, Wynonna, and the Hollywood Vampires. Also Joan Jett & Heart, the Eli Yound Band, Gretchen Wilson & Ronnie Milsap, Pam Tillis and Sawyer Brown. Really looking forward to our VIP with Alice at the Christmas Pudding! Rock on!


UPDATE SEPT 8th, 2016: I retired from my McDonald's job after almost 8 years. My brother passed away in 2016. PLEASE keep in touch with those far away. You never know... My name is armadillogal...I live in New Mexico now but I was born and raised a cheesehead in Wisconsin. I am a diehard Packers fan!

I love my Geo Tracker...especially for geocaching! UPDATE April 29th 2017: I now own a Kia Optima as well as a pick-up truck. I live in the Land of Enchantment with my fiancee Jack and my "kids". All my kids have four feet and fur.

Postcards

** I prefer my postcards NOT written on and sent in an envelope but if it's a stamped swap I acknowledge that and swap accordingly**

PLEASE though if you are sending them with other things in an envelope put them between cardboard so they don't get bent. It makes me sad when cards are ruined by this.

  • Prefer cats, manatees, valentines, zoos, other holiday cards, wolves, polar bears, hot air balloons, night city views, rock formations, castles, caves, space, native americans, waterfalls, sunsets, lightning, wild life, recipes, star trek, black and white art cards, old cars, route 66, old west, lions, tigers, all wild cats, great architecture, NPCW, classic rock singers, country singers, castles, rocks and minerals, neon signs, and unusual scenics...

  • No WIS, TX or NM cards unless you ask first-I have tons as I live in NM...No stadiums, maps, nudes, tear outs, 3 x 5's unless in my prefs...

  • PLEASE rate the swaps I send so I know you received. I never flake and if something gets lost I will try to replace it...I pride myself in being a faithful swapper.

Favorite Books

Mysteries, Native American, biographies, cats, Star Trek, some series books like Monk, Diane Mott Davidson, Castle, Murder She Wrote, J.A. Jance, Sneaky Pie Brown, Laura Childs scrapbooking books, Sheila Roberts, Susan Mallery, Garfield, Michael McGarrity, J.D. Robb etc. I love the Longmire series by Craig Johnson. I have them all except the kindle ones.

Favorite Music

This is Tate Stevens... In 2013 I won a contest to go meet him. We also saw him in Arizona and met him there too. I saw him in Farmington for my birthday! I did this diamond painting of him from one of my pictures. Aaron Tippin is a long time favorite. I met Kathy Mattea as well as Billy Ray Cyrus. I like country music, classic rock, native american, and some pop, especially female artists. Wynonna, Billy Ray Cyrus, Craig Wayne Boyd, Lance Miller, Lonestar, Diamond Rio, Miranda Lambert, Jo Dee Messina, Tina Turner, The Band Perry, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Kathy Mattea & Sugarland are among my top faves. Recently saw GARTH.....and previously enjoyed Sawyer Brown, Merle Haggard, Brad Paisley and Robert Mirabal. I enjoyed Phillip Phillips on Idol and loved him in concert in Las Cruces. It was great meeting him in Albuquerque! I am happy that Darci Lynne won AGT. I also love Terry Fator and Jeff Dunham. I used to do karaoke and sing songs by Wynonna, Jo Dee Messina, Carly Simon, etc. My first ever concert was the Jackson 5.

My favorite heavy metal performer is Alice Cooper.

The person I've seen the most is Ricky Lynn Gregg who is a country rocker from Texas.

Favorite Television

I am into Star Trek (Vulcan)RIP LEONARD NIMOY...

Longmire , NCIS, The Voice, America's Got Talent, Chopped, Shark Tank, Grey's Anatomy, American Pickers, Storage Wars, Criminal Minds, Ellen and The View. I grew up watching the Monkees and in the 90's I was hooked on Renegade, Highlander & Silk Stalkings. I recently found Firefly....I love it...and the Serenity movie...I want MORE!!! I like to make altered art...

Love is...
