Hello! Here's a little something about me:
I am a retired manager of a comercial printing company and the mother of one son and three daughters, all grown and married. We also have eight grandchildren ages 5 to 25! My children all live in different states.
We live in Oregon near a beautiful lighthouse. It is cool and rains here much of the time. We like that.
I like to watch TV but do not like movies much. I prefer documentaries, because I love to learn. I like to do crossword puzzles and play cards. I play "International Hearts" online everyday - have I played against you?
Our favorite postcards are maps or photos of your local area, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We collect stamps, please send us one (or more) of your favorites from your country.
Please do not send ad cards, homemade cards, cartoon, or religious cards [i.e. Christmas, churches, or Easter cards].
Please DO NOT use an envelope!
Please tell me about your town, country, or about you!
[We live in a small fishing community by the Pacific Ocean that depends upon tourism for much of its income.]
What is your favorite thing to do?
[We love to go kayaking with our grandchildren. Our children love to surf or stand-up paddleboard. When it is raining we like to bowl. I like to knit and I am learning to crochet.]
What do think about the United States? Have you ever visited my country? Where did you go? What did you do?
[We are about to travel to 10 different states on a vacation to see our daughters and their families: Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California. New Mexico is my favorite state because the food is so good, and there is so much to do and see there].
Where would you visit if you cold travel anywhere in the world?
[I would love to go to Scotland to visit the place of my ancestors. I would love to go to the Netherlands too].
Tell me why I should come to visit your country!
I am looking forward to hearing from you,
