Hi Marianne,

My name is Lillian, I read your post and I would enjoy  some small talk,  What subjects do you like to talk about? Do you have any hobbies or special interests?   I like reading sewing,  documentaries. 

and learning almost anything new.  I like you have found that many friends have moved away.

So I look forward to hearing form you.

Have a Wonderful Day!

Lillian

Hi Lillian,

I like to talk about any thing that comes to mind. What happened during the day.. shopping, family gatherings, weather.  I like to play online games in Pogo.  Have you heard of that site? I subscribe to Amazon.  Watch movies and buy things from there.  I also subscribe to Netflix for their movies.     I really do not have any hobbies. I just keep busy doing household chores.  Always something to do or organize.  I guess I would consider myself a night owl.

 

Your turn, 🙂

Marianne

Hi Marianne,

I use to play at Pogo a lot. I like Amazon myself for shopping and movies; I have been a member of Netflix for ever. I like that I can watch a whole year straight through. I watch the movie Megan Leavey a week ago it was worth watching.
I am still working so I can not stay up late, I keep saying I will stop working next year well I will be 70 this year and I am still working. Myself I get up very early even on the weekends. I agree that there is always something to organize. I am so looking forward to spring !
Enjoy,
Lillian

Hi Lillian,

When it comes to Amazon and Netflix I like who-dun-its.  Like you, I can watch weeks worth of those shows, without commercials.  Oh.. those commercials just annoy me.  Too many all at once. Very little show, lots of ads. One of my favorite shows is Midsummer Murder.   Right now, on Amazon I have been watching The Silent episodes. 

I am addicted to Bingo Luau, Word Whomp and some solitaire on Pogo. Those are my go to games when it's the end of the evening.  That is when I turn on my computer and relax before bedtime.  I always was a night owl because in my younger days I worked a few hours nightly when my children were small. The habit stuck with me years later.  I had friends I met in Pogo that came from different parts of the country. So  when East Coast friends left the West Coast friends were just starting.  I will tell you more about those friends later on.

It sure is cold here and more to come, or so the Weatherman says.  We have been lucky in my part of the city.  We get snow but not as bad as other parts.  Heavy rain is predicted for Sunday.  We shall see. I heard somewhere if you want to know what the weather is like.. look out the door... and  carry an umbrella. 

I hope your dreams of retiring soon comes true for you.

Marianne.

Hi Jude,

 Glad you reached out. I'm very, very,sorry for your loss. It's good  you

are making  new friends. Only been on this site for a week and I think 

the people are friendly. Single,never married young looking 70 year old.

I was engaged twice but  broke it off. I deeply regret not having any

children. Do you have any children Jude? Do they live close by?

What kind of things do you like to do?

Agnes, 

No, my husband and I were not able to have children. Since we were both teachers, we would say we got 150 new teachers every year! LOL!

 

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2000, so it is good that we moved to the warmth of TX. Even when our temps drop into  the40's I am really hurting. We put an exercise swimming pool a few years ago and I love getting out in the pool every day to keep myself limber. 

 

I also love to garden. Spent time earlier today planting, 4 geraniums, 8 sweet assylum, 8 dianthus and 20 red and pink begonias. 

 

I also have fun taking care of my two pups. They have kept me sane through Tim's passing and they give me a reason to get out of bed every morning. I just wish they would learn to sleep later than 6 am.

 

well, I have to go get them supper. More tomorrow. Hope to hear from you.

Jude

Hi Jude,

  I am so very sorry I lost contact with you. I had wrote you a letter and

put it in my draft file because I wanted to add more to it. I rarely go into

my draft file so it stayed there.

  RA is difficult to deal with. I have osteoarthritis and that is painful even

with medication. I have friends that suffer with RA and I know the mental struggles. Mom is 93 and got RA only in her hands at 85 years old.

The doctors were baffled by this. One morning, she couldn't hold a

coffee cup any longer. She is doing good with her hands, meds can

do wonders today! Are you doing lots of swimming? It is so great you

have a pool and jacuzzi. I am 4 blocks from a pool in the retired community I live. I don't know if I'll be able to go though. I need a hip

replacement and it is just too painful right now.

    You have such beautiful weather for gardening. May I ask what type 

of house you have? I have a 2 bedroom rancher. I love my house but it

needs work.  I am excited that I am getting it painted but that's not until

Sept. LOL It may take me that long to decide on the colors. I live in. a

gaited comm. So I can only have the house certain colors. Have to go to

the office to look at the color chart. I can live with the rules here but I

wish they would keep up with other retirement comm. and cut the grass

so shovel the snow. The association fee is only 77.00 a month so I guess

I shouldn't complain.

  Take care of yourself Jude. If I don't hear from you in the next 5 minutes

I will understand. God Bless!

                                        Aggie. (Agnes)

Hi, Roger,

Glad to meet you. My husband and I lived in Flat Rock before we moved here and I taught in the Southgate Schools. But Tim lost his job with Ford in late ‘80 and my sis and her hubby were in Houston so Tim came down and found a job in two weeks after 6 months  of nothing in Detroit. So of course, I followed him.  I like it in TX., wouldn't ever consider moving north of where I am. In 2000, I developed rheumatoid arthritis and even when our temps get into the 40’s I am really hurting. But as long as I keep busy and moving I am okay.  Water aerobics are really my thing as far as exercising goes. We put in an exercise pool a few years ago and I am in it every day. 

     I would be happy to communicate with you about everyday things. 

Jude

Hi, every- and anyone. My name is Dita.

Am somewhat surprised that all the postings are a couple of years old. Is there lack of interest?

For what it's worth I welcome any email correspondence from near and far - gender notwithstanding. Possibility of exchanging experiences and ideas?

Anyone interested? Please write.

 

Thank you.

Hi, Dita,

I'd love to correspond.  Certainly email is more private once we know if we're compatible.

 

I'm going to be 74 in March, work for Aflac and have no family or friends anymore.  They've all melted.  Family is gone and friends forgot about me while I cared for my ailing mom for several years.

 

So now I'm lonesome and want to start activity with penpals.  I'm a musician, love theater, used to love to read, but there doesn't seem to be much except politics, sex and thrillers now.

 

I live on a fixed income even though I work because my job is commission only, so that's not real often because I can't do it full time.

 

If you think we'd fit, let me know.

I want to find a real penpal I can share with, but I think it's a bit early to share real email addresses.  

 

I don't even know if it makes sense for us to connect.  Like how old are you, what's your life situation, etc., so I can compare it with mine.  Before we can really share, we need to know these things

Hi Jackie,

I am always interested in writing to new friends and finding out about them and sharing my interests as well. I am 65, active, love movies and live theater, camping (well, actually glamping!!), reading a good mystery and especially animals! I have two rescued dogs and two rescued cats! Love to travel and find out about this world of ours! I live outside Nashville, TN. Hope to hear back from you!

Hi Chris,

 

 I am 53 years old and live in Massachusetts. I too love mysteries and am currently reading a very good one called The Couple Next Door,  I highly recommend it. I also love animals  but currently only own one rescue dog.  He is the best worst dog ever and I couldn't be more crazy about him.  I have camped often but not recently, so I have yet to try glamping but   think it sounds right up my alley. It was very nice to hear from you. You could also contact me at resumesent11@comcast.net
