About Me

I need to take a short break from Swap-Bot, as I will be having surgery this Thursday, 5 October, and I am not sure how long the recovery period will be. I have all my current swaps ready for the morning mail, and I hope to be back very soon. Any and all prayers most welcome! Again I want to remind everyone -- all our mail, even things for right here in town, now goes to Phoenix for sorting, so even if I take it to the PO a day or two early it may still be delayed and not have the correct postmark. Wish that weren't the case, but we have no control over the postal authorities. Guess we are lucky to still have it! Now back to the normal profile stuff -- Mother of 4 plus a "courtesy daughter", grandmother of 10 (the oldest one is now working for AK Senator Lisa Murkowski -- the youngest is now 4), life member of Girl Scouts of the USA, retired teacher, married for 52 years to a wonderful man, call Alaska home (Univ. of AK/Fairbanks, '67). Currently living in Arizona, active in my church and a little with Girl Scouts although I no longer have a troop. Love to read, do counted cross-stitch, and travel. Please note this says "living" in AZ, not "loving" AZ. No offense to true Arizonans -- there is a lot to enjoy in Arizona with great people and fun things to do -- but it's just too hot here for someone who prefers -22 degrees!

Favorite Music

Almost anything except heavy metal. Especially love Kathy Troccoli, Babie Mason, Point of Grace, and the Baroque period in classical music. And the Eagles!

Favorite Movies

Fried Green Tomatoes, The Silence of the Lambs, Driving Miss Daisy, and Day of the Triffids -- and most of the Disney classic animation! And I am now adding I Am Legend, thanks to a grandson who said we had to see it.

Favorite Television

All the Law & Order and CSI shows, NCIS and the spin-offs, although the original is still the best. And Rizzoli and Iles, which I will hate to see end, and Castle -- until it ended! and Wheel of Fortune!

Favorite Crafts

Mostly cross-stitch, although a slight vision problem since my stroke makes that a little more difficult. I enjoy ATC's and try to use "leftovers" to create 3-D effects. I also like zentangles, and often make up my own patterns. Also some plastic canvas work, and painting murals on walls, especially for the grandchildren. I prefer "cool" colors, esp. greens and blues. I don't really like mustard tones (lived with too much of it growing up as my mother really liked them!)

About Me

One additional note! My first name seems to pose a problem for some partners, so I just want to point out that it is spelled correctly when it comes up with my address. It is Pamelia, with an "i" before the last "a" and is pronounced so as to rhyme with Amelia. I really love it because I was named for my grandmother, whom I adored, and it means a lot to me, so many thanks to all those who have spelled it correctly!

About Me

Also -- I have received several invitations to groups, which I do appreciate, but my life is simply too unpredictable, and my likes too eclectic, for me to ever want to participate in a group. I just am not organized enough! So thanks anyway, but my answer will always be no thanks.

About Me

Finally, I am now past the FOURTH anniversary of my breast cancer surgery. I celebrated the first with a butterfly tattoo -- butterflies symbolize resurrection! I have now had 7 follow-ups, and am cancer free and planning to stay that way. I really appreciate all the fellow swappers who sent me support and encouraging thoughts during the treatment process, as well as those who have continued to do so after reading my profile. And for everyone out there, a piece of relevant advice: GET YOUR MAMMOGRAMS!!! I am definite proof that early detection not only improves the survival rate, but it can make the treatment much less difficult! Take care of yourselves -- I hope to swap with many more of you in the future!

About Me

One last note for the Hot Drink and a Note Swap -- I drink just about anything except chai tea, and I love to try new things. I am looking forward to seeing what comes!

Response: did you ever see him in the BBC productions of the Chronicles of Narnia? If you know the books -- Tom Baker played Puddleglum in The Silver Chair. The series is available on DVD. You might enjoy them.

Comment: Beautiful flowers. I didn't see any of them when I was in Alaska, but it has been many years since I've been there, so maybe it is time for a return visit!
Response: Thanks for the heart! And yes, in my book it is always time for a visit to AK! Happy swapping!

Hey, I really received your address in the swap! :D I'll send the recipe at the weekend :)

And I'm happy that you both found that song interesting :)

Hi Pamelia!

You're one of my partners for the "What's in a name? PC Swap" and I wanted to comment on your profile because you call Alaska home. :) I was born, raised, and currently live in Alaska. Anchorage to be exact. I adore it here and like you, I prefer the cold weather! My dad actually lives in Arizona.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi in a comment since my postcard only has so much space, haha.

I love the name Pamelia, by the way. I don't think I've ever heard it pronounced the way you described before.

Happy swapping and hugs from Alaska! :)

Guess what we do have light houses in AZ, on Lake Havasu. They are building smaller ones. Now the big question is: Can we get some postcards of them.
