I'm new to AARP Pen Pals too. I wanted to share that I was in you neck of the woods in June of 2019. I'd have to look at my itinerary again but we were in Troon and in Glasgow for a short time. We were out sightseeing castles.  Scotland is such a beautiful country and I would love to return and see it without time constraints. 

I work with behavior Health and enjoy volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. If you don't have a pen pal maybe we can communicate. 

I'm 66 years old.

@SengaL903370 

Hello I am new to being a penpal and noticed that you like to knit and live in Scotland.  I would love to have a penpal that is in another country.  Would you like to see if we would make a good match?  I am 32 and live in Vancouver, Canada.  I have been married for just over a year and are currently petless but if we couold have one we would definitely have a dog.

 

Regards,

Heather

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!  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.

Where do you live?  I too love to write (I have a book published) and lately I have been focused on the Bible. Why don't you and I correspond and see what else we have in common?

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.
