**PLEASE, PLEASE... NO Postix, Touchnote, MyPostcard, or ANY other computer or third party generated cards. I DO NOT want my information shared in this manner.***
The mail seems extremely slow between some countries lately. I promise that your card will be registered as soon as I receive it.
Hi! I live right in the heart of Vancouver with all the hustle and bustle but very close to a salt water inlet. I'm retired, and a widow.
My Mum is English (I was born there) and is now 96 years old and my best friend. The photo I used for my avatar was taken 2019 on her birthday.
My Dad was Finnish; I'm sorry to say I don't speak any Finnish and have not visited Finland. Since I took a DNA test on MyHeritage it seems I must be related to half the country, ha ha.
As well as lots of travel, some of my favourite pastimes are:
drinking too many cups of tea
reading mysteries, preferably ones set in other countries, Nordic and English are favourites
smiling at dogs, they usually wag and 'smile' back
I do smile at people, too ;-)
visiting botanical gardens, galleries, and museums
watching wild birds
taking long walks on our seawall and in parks
seeing movies in the cinema on a big screen
indulging my love of chocolate
Could you please save your tourist cards of modern cities and buildings for people who collect them? Of course, if that's all that's available to you I'll be happy to receive them.
I love cute illustrations and random surprise cards! I just like so many different things I've given up on a list. Christmas and other holiday cards are welcome. 😊
A personal message about anything... weather, pets, likes, dislikes, will be very appreciated.
Thank you very much for reading my profile. I feel lucky to have found Postcrossing! ❤️ Even though I've received many cards I value each and every one.
