About Me

Hello. I am thrilled to have stumbled onto Swap-Bot! I am still working even though I am past retirement age so I can save money for travel. I live in Chicago and have a son and daughter, both of whom have December birthdays. I live with two parakeets, one noisy and one quiet (but he is new to the scene and getting adjusted).

A few years ago I realized how much fun it is communicating with postcards. I'm open to penpals and real letters, though, if we share interests.

My interests are: reading, especially history and mysteries,

watching British tv shows,

communicating via postcards.

singing in my church choir,

listening to classical music,

and playing cards and word games, especially Boggle and Bananagrams.

I am interested in: architectural details, art nouveau, art deco, and cemetaries,

sacred art and stained glass,

mountains and bodies of water,

traditional crafts, textiles,

Artists: Elizaveta Bem, Carl Larson, Inge Look, Robert Finale, Callebotte, Caravaggio and the Impressionists. And anyone who paints domestic scenes and seascapes.

I enjoy watching: Jeopardy, MAS*H, I Love Lucy, NYPD Blue, E.R., the West Wing, the Good Wife, Frasier, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, NCIS New Orleans. We don't have cable and don't get in many network tv channels.

I'm also fond of: Christmas, Easter and Halloween,

quotations, puns, corny jokes,

cleverness and whimsy,

crosswords, mazes, word puzzles

autumn and winter,

vintage photos and advertising,

dogs, puffins, rabbits, ducks, koalas and African animals,

irises and peonies,

baseball and hockey,

colors blue, green and purple,

and, most importantly, chocolate!

Comment: Dearest Sharon, I just want to thank you so much for the book theme card that you sent! I love your handwriting by the way. The stamps that you used were lovely as well~ Where do you get books from the middle ages? Through online?? And yes, getting a condo back in 2000 is nice :) For some reason, I remembered the season FRIENDS.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. I've been to St. Paul's but no longer remember what it was like inside. My husband is somewhat of a drill sergeant when we take a vacation, so I was probably too worn out to remember. I love your handwriting too, it's wonderful!
Response: I'm glad you like the card. Yes, after a while it's hard to remember specific churches because I've been lucky enough to visit so many. Happy travels and enjoy the swapping!

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! I love crocheting and crocheted lace items. Your handwriting looks really interesting on the card!
Response: I am glad you like the card. I have always been afraid to try crocheting because I worry that I will either make it too tight or too loose. I appreciate the heart!

Comment: Thanks Sharon! Your handwriting is so cool! I actually haven’t seen any of these shows yet so I’ll have to check them out. I love the old stamps and the daffodils on the front. My mom’s dog has recently started eating her daffodils for some reason so she’d love this beautiful field of them lol!
Response: Gee, sorry to hear about the demise of the daffodils! I'll never forget driving down to Berea, Kentucky years ago to visit a friend in springtime and seeing hundreds of daffodils everywhere. It was a great welcome to springtime! Thank you for the rating.

Comment: Thanks for the awesome postcard! Our cats live in our garage. They have a heated bed. They love to play in our backyard. They stalk the birds and mice, and love to try to catch dragonflies and grasshoppers. And the chickens fascinate them, but have learned to keep their distance! :-)
Response: Glad you liked the card. Thank you for the rating. I enjoyed hearing about all your wildlife! Happy swapping!

Hi Sharon. I sent you an email which explains via audio clip why you will be receiving two postcards from me. You asked me to resend the email, which I have done. KIndly let me know whether you had a chance to review the audio.
