Hello, I like many types of music and play the piano. Some singers I like are Linda Ronstadt, Dean Martin, John Denver, Neil Diamond, Placido Domingo and bands The Shadows, The Hollies, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, The Twilights, Masters Apprentices and many others. I am a retired nurse. My interests include patchwork and quilting, cooking, reading, crosswords, gardening, animals, especially Scottish, Cairn, Dandy Dinmont, York, Silkies, Australian, White West Highland and most terriers. I miss my dogs, a Cairn Terrier and two Scottish terriers. Now I have a delightful Jack Russell Terrier cross, (Bodie) and a pedigree Jack Russell female (Zenny). I love animals, history and learning about people and countries.
I like watching mainly British shows, comedies, mysteries, medical programs, documentaries and history. I drive a Toyota Camry.

Please do not send me postcards of nudes or erotica, nor religious pictures, Christmas, easter or halloween. I do not collect religious buildings, churches, cathedrals, temples, etc., colouring in postcards, nor ad/free or homemade cards. Do not send pieces of paper with pictures cut out of magazines stuck on, or scanned and copied photos. Please send authentic postcards only. Thank you.
A new Postcrossing stamp, would be much appreciated.
If you ask me for a direct swap and we agree to arrange one, I ask you to send the postcards first, as I have been let down on many occasions previously, having sent but not received swaps.
Thank you in advance for your postcard. Happy Postcrossing.
