Hi Heather!

 

It's been a long time since I had a pen pal, but the prospect sounds great! When I saw your mention of knit and crochet 🧶 I knew I had to respond to you. I knit every day. If you are interested in pursuing a pen pal relationship with me, please PM me. My Facebook name is Kathleen Terry Auen. I hope to hear from you!

 

Regards,

 

Kathleen

Hi James,

 

Where are you located?   I'm a 61 or 62 year old female who always forgets how old she is.   I'm located in Southern California.   So, what do you say?

Hi!  I’m single, retired, been an empty nester for years.  Love to travel.  I love being home too. Been focused on reading my Bible and history lately.  It would be nice to find someone who would like to write.  I’m pretty much middle of the road. I’m interested in why other countries don’t have so many inmates and what we can do here...  amongst many other things.

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).

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

Hi there!

 

I am looking for a pen-pal, also.  My age is 65 and I am "retired"/on disability.  I am looking for someone with a sense of humor, who is open and doesn't mind discussing religion.  I don't do politics.  I am married (2nd time around) and live on the Big Island of Hawai'i.

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
