About Cathy...

Hello- I love getting my little rectangles (or squares or any shape really) in the mail- much nicer than bills. Im always amazed by just how many different cards there are. Thanks in advance for sending me a card.

Current avatar - One of the few embroidery pieces I completed over 30 yrs ago. I dont even know how to thread a needle now!

I am an ICU nurse in Houston-.(and yes we are VERY busy and exhausted - this virus is awful). I love to read, visit museums, go to the movies, go to festivals. My favorites are the Renaissance festival in Houston and the Jazz festival in New Orleans, there is also a very nice Japanese festival here too, and of course write postcards. I like to decorate the back of the card, and have a collection of older stamps (to use on the cards). I have lived in Scotland (im Scottish), London, Tenerife,(Spanish Island), Dallas, New Orleans and now Houston. I enjoy spending time with my 2 daughters- always an adventure.
It's the simple things in life that make me happy - a good cup of coffee, british chocolate, hanging out with friends ,the sound of the ocean....................

Can you please date the card. . Unusual stamps are cool. Write snippets and stories from your life - what did you do today.

P.S. As for our current political situation, feel free to share your opinions.It's interesting to hear what other people think. Lets hope common sense prevails in November.
Democracy is important to me (or at least the illusion of it) I couldnt stand the thought of not being free to make my own decisions (its the Scottish blood), but also there has to be sensible laws to keep the bad actors from hurting people. It seems crazy to me to have folks running around with machine guns.
