Hi Cathe....so nice to find a penpal potential in California (my home sweet home).

Your post was just wonderful - you described the California lifestyle to a tee!!

I now live in Florida but still miss the West Coast.

Your life sounds busy...and you are still young - enjoy every moment! 

Hope you will write soon!

Hi there! 

I didn’t catch your name! Would love to get to know you! Glad you liked me profile! I’m just a California Beach Gal that loves to travel and make new friends! 

What’s it like in Florida? I have sister that lives in Fort Walden Beach. I need to visit! I was there in 1979 and went to WDW. Then my hubby and I went in 2017 it was a lot of fun! So different than in the 70’s-80’s :catwink:

 

So tell me more about you?

 

i don’t know why we can’t email direct??

Have a great day! Thanks for reaching out!!

No matter how you enter your email address you should not post it here. Everyone who reads this will know it. Why didn't you send it to the person you replied to by private message?

Hi Letty, My name is Abby I was also born and raised in California.. San Jose, California. I live in Oregon now. I moved here with my husband in 1985. Well actually he was still in the military and i moved here in oregon to his moms house with my 2 children. I love to write and definitely know the struggles that come along with Domestic Violence. Ahem... My first marriage was like that... It was a nighmare, I was verbally and physically abused, it was horrible and unfortunately took me years to overcome the feelings of being worthless, the depression, the hurt and so many other things. I also coached soccer. What a great game. Well if you ever want to talk i would be happy to write to you.. Oh yeah one more thing, I am a Latina or whats some would call hispanic mom of 4 all grown children 38,36,29,25..

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

My name is Abby. I work full-time as a RV Detailer in a big company. In another month, I will have been working here a year. It is hard busy work, but since I have achy bones and am in pain every day, it helps me to keep on moving. Since I started working here I have been working 5 regular 8 hour shifts per week and typically working on both Saturdays and Sundays 5-6 hours per day. I love working and I truly enjoy the people I work with in this RV Lot. In our particular lot we all get along, There isnt any petty arguments or fights or none of that. We work hard and we laugh hard too!! I feel lucky and blessed to work with a wonderful group of people!! I do have 2 College Degrees in counseling but after 4 years, even though I was a pretty good counselor , it wasnt the clients that I struggled with but other counselors. So I stopped working in the field. After that I worked with Alzheimer/ Dimentia folks. I loved my folks and enjoyed them so greatly.. They had the best most fascinating stories. We had great times. Although they didnt remember my name or anything like that, we still did fun things together. People may think I could never do this type of work, but I grew to love them all and would do anything for anyone of the folks. I did that for a year, than had measly jobs here and there. But this one as a detailer is a keeper because I can apply for other jobs within the company. So theres plenty of room for advancement!!
