"Yvonne, We use FedEx, USPS, UPS, Amazon, Fingerhut, Safeway, Schwann's, and some local deliveries as well. So lots of online sources for presents.

"Yvonne, I'm glad that gift-giving method works for you.
When we were kids, my folks gave each of us kids $500 one year, and no presents. Since we had no presents to unwrap, we all felt like it was the emptiest Christmas we ever…"
"Lynne - As opposed to us crazy Americans that rush around in a panic at the last minute to get our Christmas shopping done? LOL.

"Yvonne, you are so freaking right. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the little guy takes it in the butt. I'm about ready to move to Canada, but I'm not sure the Canadians are any better off than we are down here."

Biking, walking, boating (not currently), model railroading (not currently), church. No car, so my feet and my bike carry me on my errands. I also take my tractor to the store if I have a heavy load to carry.
Reading (currently, Swiss Family Robinson), videos. Would like to try oil painting (landscapes, mostly, like Dave Ross did). I like mystery stories (and Sherlock Holmes, etc), humor books (Erma Bombeck, etc). I was writing a humor book and a spy novel, but that computer went insane on me, so I have to rewrite the books.
I'm a songwriter, specializing in Southern Gospel. Favorite singers are Misty Freeman, Carroll Roberson, and Mark Bishop. I love to write love songs for my partners.
Favourite TV Shows
Mythbusters. Loved the Red Green show. Rick Steves travel shows are nice.
My favorites are comedies, romantic comedies, or mysteries. etc, Have watched "The Green Mile", but that's awfully intense for me. "Fried Green Tomatos" was good. No horror movies for me, please. Occasional thrillers are the most I can tolerate. Not into fantasy stuff, but Narnia was good!
The Cat Who series, by Lillian Jackson Braun
Very humorous, loving, kind, sweet, loyal. Love women immensely, and I'm always looking for opportunities to be supportive to women. I'm looking for friends and, ultimately, a long-term relationship that
will lead to marriage, if at all possible. I can be happy married or single, but prefer to be married.

Lowell, thanks for dropping by LOL. There is another group called "Women's and Men's Best Friends - Our Pets". If you join and post your message and website for Irving House, you should get several more votes there.
Lowell, let's be friends, 'k? Our interests are almost simular. I enjoy boating (not currently), but was involved with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary (volunteer) for 20 years. Retired Dec 2008. Love reading & writing mysteries. Got 2 currently in the works, 3 somewhat done. Not looking publishing, just keeping the cobwebs out of the brain. My favourite is Agatha Christie. Sherlock Holmes is great too. Do you belong to Netflix? If not, gotta join, cause for 9 bucks a month you can watch as many Sherlock Holmes movies they got. That includes as many DVDs. My account is for 19 bucks and with that I watch as many as I want on my PC & get 3 DVDs. With Netflix around, most of our video stores are going out of business. God! it's amazing how much we got in common, that even includes the movies. Do like the 'classic' horror movies. Dracula's the favourite. Romantic comedies are ok, but give me a reall good belly laugh, crying, comedy any day. As for fantasy, not into them either. Action & Adventure, Mystery, & even an occassion war movies. Love TCM. Recorded over 300 videos with about 3 movies on each and have an abundance of DVD;s. Also belong to Columbia House. The best value with them is getting box sets. One favourite comedy is Police Academy, which I got all 7. Just picked up, the entire MASH series, which includes the original 1970 movie. 36 discs in all. Took me 4 weeks (that's watching everyday) to got thru the entire collection. Also, enjoy British comedies. My 2 favourites are Are You Being Served? & Keeping Up With Appearances. Just got in from work, so having a Blue and Errol Flynn is calling. Good night, Lowell. Chat later, bud.
