About Me

November 8, 2022, want to let y'all know, it is taking average 6 weeks to get a postcard from here to the USA.

November 1, 2022, buried one of my 3 cats. Today November 4 buried the 2nd of my 3 cats. A type of "cat leukemia". :( Today the 3rd one was checked out. She does not have it. She is getting shots to protect her from it. To go from 3 to one in such a short time hurts horribly.

Had the funeral for our 100-year-old friend! He was/is awesome and sorely missed already. 10/10/2022

September 25, 2022 I am better. I have joined a few swaps. I am so tired but working every day since April will do that. It has been rough. I am grateful for what I have and what I don't have.

My dad had back surgery, he passed away, the news I got is his body wasn't strong enough to recover from the surgery. He was almost 81. The hits just keep coming. . .my husband's older (75-year-old) brother had his leg removed, he is in hospice care and not expected to live, alcoholism combined with diabetes. August 18, 2022, he died today. Today was the funeral of a 47-year-old mentally handicapped fellow. He came to the store every day, made silly jokes, improved my day and mood. He was in hospice for about a month and died of a heart attack. No internet at home for 9 days so far. Hours on the phone with the provider, a new router and still nothing. Tomorrow an electrician is coming. . .updated 8-8-2022 (I'm using the internet at work on my break) 25 August a terrifying storm passed over the island, I do not remember such a furious storm, the loudness and amount of thunder was scary and lightening, WOW, took out most of the phone service and fried most of the internet routers on the island.

October 26, 2021. . .my dad mailed me some blank Christmas cards from California, USA. . they arrived today, June 29th, 2022!!! To make it worse, the cards are mildewed and stuck together!!!

The mail, uuuggghh, I mailed a postcard to the USA it took about 5 weeks. During that time, I re-sent to my partner and took only about 2 weeks. It makes no sense! I drop them off inside the main post office to a clerk or outside thd building!!!??? Sorry! June 7, 2022

I get mail only once a week.

I have 2 threes'; I am ashamed of this and sad. I can give no explanation.

I married a Greek/American and moved to Greece with him.


I am a Christian. I attend a Church here where I live.

PLEASE, notify me if you don't get what I sent, I will re-send ASAP!

I am married with 3 children and 1 grand baby!

I have 3 cats. As of November 4. 2022 I have only one cat. :(

POSTCARDS: I love postcards such as recipes, turtles, frogs, squirrels, flowering plants, flowers, any from any movie, ad cards if they are funny or clever, bible verses, UNESCO sites, freebies, Stay Calm and..., Twilight series (loved the books and the first movie, liked the other movies), Game of Thrones books, loved them, any from any TV series, any holiday anytime of the year, cupcakes, cakes, tea or coffee, printed with encouragement. PLEASE, send any postcard you want. I have a VERY limited choice for sending.

TEA: I prefer NOT to receive green tea because I don't like it. I also do not chamomile tea. I DO LIKE to try flavors that are not common.

Burgundy and Pink are my favorite colors.

I love flowers, flowering bushes, flowering vines. Especially if they smell good. All Cacti but again if they bloom, even better.

Texas and Oregon are my favorite states.

I like sending and getting snail mail of any kind.

Tex-Mex food is my favorite, 2nd favorite is Greek.

I like reading. I read almost every book that comes my way. I keep one in different places so I can always have one available when I have time to read. ha ha ha

Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I love all your pet names.
Comment: Hi there. Received the PCโ€™s, probably the easiest solution when you havenโ€™t revived card yet. I think our mail service is totally out of whack because ones that Iโ€™m receiving are taking way longer to receive - and other mail I have sent out in Canada have take 3 weeks and one that I sent at same time hasnโ€™t even received it yet and now itโ€™s being a month. Take care.
Comment: Not sure what happened with this one, but it's postmarked Oct. 24th.
Response: OCTOBER 24TH??? I don't understand how that is possible! I want to scream and say bad words right now. SERIOUSLY??? Also, postcards are taking 6 weeks to get to the US and Canada. I am VERY sorry and have no explanation for such a thing. With all my heart I am sorry. Once, recently, I forgot to drop off a postcard and told my partner. It was the day after. Not such a long time. I wish I could find out why such thing happened and how it got to you so quick if I had mailed it so horribly late.

Comment: Thank you! I've become more of a coffee fan, lately, but I'm afraid I've never liked milk (I think I'd prefer water :)
