I live with my Terrible Trio of Fearsome Felines in a small town in near Lake Erie. Lake Erie looks like the ocean and I love it! I'm a history addict and love shows like "Time Team." If I could, I would study history 24/7.
I'm also a "Star Trek" fan. I've been fascinated by the stars since I was little and love the pictures from the Hubble Telescope. I've heard that Britian will issue "Star Trek" stamps in 2020. I'd love to get them or cards showing them.
I love Asian and Arab calligraphy. I can't read those languages, but the letters look pretty. My favorite artist is Da Wei Kwo. I like his style of painting and the animals he painted have a lot of personality.
When you send me a postcard, I'd love to know the answer to this question: What are you thankful for?
I'm thankful for my job. I help people who have mental illnesses, like Depression, Schizophrenia, or Anxiety, and who are addicted to alcohol or drugs.
I'm also grateful for the internet and TV shows from other countries, especially the UK. "DCI Banks," "The Great British Baking Show," and others are fantastic!
What kinds of postcards do I like? I really enjoy most cards, but especially these:
- animals (especially endangered or rare animals, ones that live underwater or cats)
- native embroidery (needlework)
- made of unusual materials or with special effects
- showing postage stamps or maps. I never take stamps off cards
- about helping people with mental illness or drug addiction (not making fun of them)
PS for Everyone- On the Postcrossing Forums, my name is HausMaus.
PS for Japanese Postcrossers - I'm looking for cards of Mount Miyogi in Gumma-ken. I tore the ligaments in my left ankle while hiking there in 1995 and wasn't able to buy postcards.
PS for Italian Postcrossers - My mostly white cat, Raven, was named after Ravenna, Ohio, which was named after Ravenna, Italy, and I'd love a card from there.
PS for Norwegian Postcrossers - Hardanger Embroidery, which I'm learning, is from Hardanger, Norway, so I'd love a card from that area.
