Hi !

I am a 62 year old women in California and I have been writer most of my life.  I would like to be snail mail pen pals with a senior as I know how much receiving a letter can mean. 

Please let me know how I can participate in your program.

Thanks.

A complete newbie but would like to chat via snail mail or e-mail.  Am retired, live alone, like my own company but want to interact with people who enjoy corresponding.  I am sorta stranded in Ca. (long story) but born and raised on the east coast (Philly).  Love lots of things - too many to list but basically love animals, out-of-doors, art (am an equine artist), games of many kinds, camping especially, and others.  

 

Hope to hear from someone.  Not sure how this works but will try to figure it out.  Claire

Am a new writer hoping someone would like to correspond by snail mail.  Wondering if there's anyone out there in their 60's or 70's who lives alone but loves to be in contact with people in general.  Am from Philly but stuck in Ca. (long story =^..^=)  One daughter nearby but no other family here.  Love animals (am an equine artist for fun), camping, games (table games, logic and puzzles - for a few), and other interests. 

 

Do contact me if you would like to chat awhile.  Claire

I am new to this and look forward to having a penpal. I live in Glasgow, Scotland. Been engaged for 33years. Have 1 son(23) and a grandson (3 and a half). They keep me busy. I like to read, knit, take photographs, walks in the country. I had my wee dog sam for 11 years, he passed away on the 1st of Feburary this year. I miss him lost. I have been paid off from work due to a health issue. I volunteer in the Recovery Cafes in the North East of Glasgow, have done for the last 6 years.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi my names Senga and I actually live in Glasgow, Scotland but the drop down doesnt have the UK in it.

I read your post and found that we have a lot in common. I would not mind sending letters by post. I used to have a pen pal (Helen) in Chicago in the 80s.

I have a son and a grandson. I love to read, knit,feed and watch the birds in my back garden. I like photography. I look forward to hearing from you Ginger.

Hi, I realize the post says "pen pals" wanted so maybe I should say that I'm interested in e-mail pals. I'm a senior gal and talk with my kids, grandkids, great-grands and close friends over the phoner and through text.  However, I enjoy going on the computer or tablet and writing an e-mail.  It's fun  to make new friends, share daily events, get to know each other and even learn from each other. If anyone is interested please feel free to drop me a line  ...  [email removed for security reasons] ... Stay well, stay happy and take care of you  :-)

@AnnetteM883574 

Morning Annette Welcome to our Community & Hello to other posters here

My name is Ginger 

I could have written your post

I enjoy writing letters me & old friend have done it for many years

I'm 61 divorced for 5 years have 2 sons in their 30's they along with my daughters in law have active lives - lives of their own for which I am proud they can stand alone Have 2 granddaughters which I pickup from school few times month & enjoy time with them when can I live alone in NC with my 8 year old Yorkie & 2 cats a mom & daughter adopted 10 years ago

So I too have lots of hours to fill 

I love birds feeding them and watching them I love nature although with all the heavy pollen we've had haven't been able to get out and enjoy it much Grateful pollen is lessening so soon should be able to get back outside walking 

When was a teen my dad traveled the world for work he met nice young guy in Japan for several years we were penpals which I have fond memories of those times

I am interested in being Snail mail pen pals with those who are interested in doing snail mail always such a delight getting letters in mail 

This community is a wonderful blessing to me have met few folks through common topics

Everyone have a beautiful day 

May we all make a few connections Thanks for starting this topic

I remember having 4 penpals in different parts fo the world many moons ago. We communicated for many yrs, but somehow drifted after some years. 

I'm single, live alone, but not lonely. Enjoy my liife and where I live - the country of Panama (Panama Canal, Roberto Duran, Noriega). Retired, and love to travel.

Anyone out there would like to communicate, feel free to drop me a line. You must know, I seldom access this site. Maybe I will visit 1/week (will try).

M
