About Me

** PROFILE UPDATED ** 04/21/21

My name is Suzanne. I am 53 years old. I've been married to my husband, for 20 years, He is my Clark Gable, McIver and James Bond all rolled into one.We have three adult children from my previous marriage, Aaron ( BD:4/12/87), Jeremi (BD: 9/18/89) and Courtney (BD:8/5/90). I have six grandkids. Scarlett (BD: 8/12/09) Serenity "Wren"(BD: 6/21/11) Saige ( BD: 6/20/13) Toby (BD: 5/29/15) Willow ( BD: 8/7/15) and Juniper (BD: 8/3/20 ). I am a retired nurse.I retired after 20+ years due to health reasons ( fibromyalgia, hypothyrodism, depression, etc.) I joined swap-bot for the interaction with others and have not been disappointed. I have met some wonderful people on here. I have also met some not so wonderful people, but such is life. My favorite color is red and I'm also loving mint green right now. Sometimes, I can't believe that I am a "NaNa" I am still such a kid at heart.. I love dolls, stuffed animals, mystical/mythological creatures such as unicorns, gnomes, Elves, leprechauns, pixies, faeries (esp Tinkerbell) as well as the not so nice mystical creatures dragons, trolls, Medusa etc. I love to read. I enjoy most any type of book. My least favorite read would have to be romances, but I'm sure there are even some of those that I enjoy. I have always been a huge fan of true crime and trivia based books. If a person has led an interesting life then I enjoy their Autobiography/Biography. I am a book collector and find it hard to get a rid of any of them. I still enjoy the feel of the real thing as opposed to electronic devices. Maybe one day I'll give in, but not today. I have several favorite books. Some examples, (but I truly have so many I have enjoyed that it's hard to narrow my favorites to just a few), Gone With the Wind, The Giving Tree, The Little Prince, Dr. Seuss, Whoever fights Monsters, Uncle John's bathroom reader and so many more. I also love butterflies, long flowing scarfs, Ladybugs, pen pals, music, Netflix, Prime, Brit Box, HBO now, Tubi, Disney and Peacock. We live in the country so other than the streaming channels, we just watch the channels our antenna can pick up, my husband has the antenna so high that I think we could contact Aliens lol. Adult Coloring Books ( I enjoy pictures of people, places and things rather than random shapes and designs) My husband and I love going to thrift stores and can usually find at least one thing to buy🤣, but even if I don't I enjoy looking. I'm usually fairly easy to get along with, but I do not like to feel like someone is trying to take advantage of me. I encourage everyone to join Swapbot. I love swap-bot!! I have two short haired cream colored Chihuahuas . Bitsy( female), PeeWee (Male) and a spotted blue ( Merle) chiwennie, Peanut (male)

My Town

I live in a small town, Climax, Georgia. The population is only about 300 people and the one store is a convenience store. Let me add that we got a Dollar General store this year. (They are around every corner aren't they?!.) I am glad that we have one though. The towns around us are slightly larger. They do have a Walmart and various Dollar Stores. What we don't have is Post Cards and a wide selection of stickers, stationary, pretty envelopes and other cute PenPal supplies. I generally use white, wide ruled notebook paper to write my letters on because I often write long letters and it's easier to use that rather than stationary.( Plus as I said hard to find any variety). I am a loyal, long letter writing person who enjoys the art of letter writing. So if you are like me and enjoy the actual letter more than the add ins or the type of paper I use, then I am the one you need.🥀😊😊

Favorite Music

When I was young, one of my favorite memories was listening to the oldies rock and roll radio show on Sunday night with my Mama. We competed for tapes or records and won so much they wouldn't let us play some weeks. My Daddy listened to Country. Then there were the times when the whole family would get in the car and drive to an all night Gospel sing. My favorite group is Aerosmith and I love Steven Tyler. I have an older brother/younger sister and three kids, plus various friends. So They all introduced me to a part of the music I love today. I was a teenager in the 80's and that music is still great. I have a huge crush on Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. I realize I already said that, but it's worth repeating. 😂. The only music that I really have to dig to find something I like is Rap/hiphop/heavy metal /Opera and what people like to call music as they stand and scream into a microphone, but with that being said, I can still find a few songs I like in those genres too ( I really just love music). I could never make money with my voice as people would constantly change the station when I came on, but I love to sing and I love to crank up the music and sing with whoever is willing to subject themselves to my singing , especially my grandkids. I listen to music alot of time related to my mood. My go-to music is music from the 80's. As I said earlier, I was a teenager then so it holds alot of memories. It's hard sometimes to believe that the 80's qualifies as classics. I like the playlist swaps on here because it introduced me to songs I may not have found yet and also reminds me of songs that I may not have heard in awhile. I also like to share my list with others, I think a person's choice in music tells a little bit about their personality.

Favorite Movies/TV shows

I always list" Gone With The Wind" as my favorite movie. It is a classic. Sure over the years they have improved the sound, lighting, and visual effects of movies. For the era GWTW was amazing and for me, being a southern belle myself, who wouldn't daydream (or nightdream either for that matter) about a dashing Rhett Butler sweeping us off our feet and carrying us up those stairs. If you have never seen Gone with the Wind, I highly suggest you watch it atleast once. You will not be dissapointed and you will probably want to watch it again.Do I believe that the South and Slavery was actually like the movie portrayed? Maybe bits and pieces, but even if it was exactly like GWTW, owning another person is horrible in itself. There are numerous other movies I enjoy eg. The Sound of Music, The King and I, The Original True Grit,(I love alot of musicals). Disney movies are always good, Dirty Dancing, Forrest Gump, American Graffiti, Grease, Xanadu, Breakfast Club, 16 Candles, Ghost. Most any Stephen King movie has my vote. While You Were Sleeping, Sleepless In Seatle, You've Got Mail, Footloose ( original), Interview With A Vampire, Mrs. Doubtfire. The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.The original Cartoon Grinch( the newest animated grinch too, I like the Jim Carrey version,but not as much as the other two) and Hocus Pocus ( there are far too many to list). Seems like all they have done recently is remake the old movies. Some examples of TV shows: any of the crime type shows Law & Order(and their spinoffs), The true crime shows ( Murderous Woman, Corrupt Crime, People who kill etc.), AHS, SOA, The Walking Dead, Call The Midwife, The Big Bang Theory, Two & a half men(Charlie Sheen Version) and so on. I watch regular TV, Netflix, YouTube, Disney Channel, HBO now, Amazon prime, Brit Box, Tubi and Peacock, I also like going to the movies every now and then. It is so dang expensive though. Three is a drive in about an hour away, so I like it when we get to go.

Dislikes/.... misc. stuff

DISLIKES: *Liars *People who are mean *Unnecessary Drama *Fibromyalgia ( Chronic Pain in general) *Depression *Being Broke (don't we all dislike this one lol) *People who don't give hearts even when they know you worked extra hard on a swap. *People who assume things without asking you * People who don't attempt to even read your profile prior to a swap ( I do realize mine is long, but I tried to include as much as possible to make swaps with me easier.

ALLERGIES/SENSITIVITIES

*ONIONS!! * Seasonal Allergies I know it seems strange for me to list this here, but I'm really allergic to onions and it seems like everything in the world has onions in some form in it. The last two recipe swaps I joined, people still sent me recipes with onions even though I have this listed as an allergy on my profile. I know that I could just not include them when I make the recipe, but it makes me wonder if they even bothered to read my profile. I feel like shouting like the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland " OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!" Who's been painting my roses red? WHO'S BEEN PAINTING MY ROSES RED? /Who dares to taint / With vulgar paint / The royal flower bed? / For painting my roses red / Someone will lose his head!"

Sensitivities

My ears are pierced, but I can't wear the gold plated rings, ear rings or necklaces. I do often wear the little cheap bracelets, but they have to be other materials besides gold plated ( string, elastic, leather, silver, surgical steel, gold, plastic). I love bracelets, chokers and other baubles. I have 2 piercings in each ear lobe and a single piercing at the top of my right ear. Very easy to please. very few dislikes. When someone takes their time to send me something, I'm thankful for the effort. GROUPS I join groups because they offer more swaps and I hope this will allow me to have a bigger variety of swaps, they generally have less flakers and I can find swaps tailored to what I like. I don't join groups to make my profile look better. Just because my profile doesn't mention the general concept that a group is about does not mean that I don't have an interest in those things. I'm 5 3 years old and have a wide variety of interests and if I listed each and every one in my profile, it would take you years to get through the stuff. If a request to join a certain group is not sufficient proof of my interest, then I guess I shouldn't be a member of your group. Thanks to those groups that allow me to be a member.

Crafting

I recently got a cricut air 2, a cup tumbler and a machine to be able to make T-Shirts, hats and not sure what else. I am learning as I go. Right now I am enjoying making decals ( for like car windows) and tumblers with personalized decals on them. If you would like to do a swap related to that, just let me know. If you want to do any type of private swap with me, send me a PM and we'll see what we can come up with.

Lessons learned on Swapbot

  1. Snail Mail maybe outdated and slow to some people, but it still remains one great way to meet and get to know people, that you probably wouldn't meet otherwise and I really enjoy it.
  2. There are so few things that I dislike. Sometimes, I get these little things in the mail that so far I haven't figured out what they are used for, but I love them. When someone takes their time to send me something it is special to me.
  3. I work really hard on my swaps and I stress about disappointing people. My town is small and places to buy things are very limited. Almost everything I send in the type 3 swaps I've had to order online. I even had to order post cards because there were none in my small town and believe me I researched (even e-mailed my mayor and he responded). For every swap I try to meet and exceed the requirements. When someone doesn't rate me or doesn't leave a comment, I wonder why. Not getting a heart bothered me at first until I realized that sometimes people may like what you send and just don't think to give a heart.(no heart, but a great comment on the rating makes not getting a heart somewhat better). Oh I can't tell a lie to be the bigger person here, not getting a heart when I put all of my heart into the swap still bothers me lol. A new friend I met here told me a quote "It is what it is" to help me work on this stressor. After I've done everything I can to please my partner and can do nothing else, just realize "it is what it is" so this is a work in progress, but I thank them.
  4. There is a children's song that goes "make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold" I know it means people, but here I'm going to apply it to swaps. I know that type 2 and 3 swaps is like moving up the ladder and I'm doing those, but I still enjoy several type 1 swaps so because I enjoy these swaps I've learned I don't have to stop doing them. I can enjoy both.
  5. I've learned that my friend on live journal, ( Hi Alyssa, if you are reading this)was right. She is the first pen pal that I've had in ages and she told me if I was interested in meeting other people, making new friends and getting some great pen pals, join swap bot. I tip my hat to her. She is a beautiful person and a great friend.
  6. I'll add this for grins and giggles. What others have learned about me. It is unnecessary to worry that I will write a letter that is too short in a letter swap. What my partner worries about more: 1. Did this person escape from the nut house 2. Are there any trees left, after she wrote her letter there must be a huge paper shortage.3. Will I have time to do anything this week besides reading the letter that she wrote. I'm just joking, but those of you who penpal with me know that I can get carried away. 7.Casey Kasem was the voice of Shaggy on Scooby Doo for many years and also the host of the popular radio program America's top 40 count down. Every week at the close of the program he had a signature sign off "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars." without even realizing it, my signature sign off has become "Keep Smiling and Keep Swapping"
  7. I've learned I can make bookmarks, although not as beautiful in my opinion as those I have received. I will keep trying.
  8. Many people do not read profiles before swaps..... "No Onions"!
  9. I've found that some people find me/my profile interesting.... Go figure. Anyway If you'd like to drop me some mail, please message me for my address. I look forward to hearing from you.You don't have to send extras in letters to me although I love them, I love letters too.
  10. If you made it this far, thank you for taking your time to know more about me. I hope that I sound likable.
  11. This is people who decide to make a post on the forums. Don't get upset if people bluntly reply. If they feel like you are wrong, they will tell you and they do not sugar coat it.

Ask

If you have any questions that I didn't cover please ask. I don't mind questions.

Comment: So, my mom loves the song Margaritaville. They have a restaurant too. I am from Florida and a few years back we went to Universal Studios. I said we should go to their Hard Rock Cafe and she said "Hard Rock Cafe? They have MARGARITAVILLE baby!" So we ended up going there. Thank you for joining my swap!
