i am 66 years old. i was injured in a fall last year and underwent a serious surgery  on my leg.  since then i have been home bound  and at times very lonely even though i have caregivers.  i live in Penna and  would like to communicate through email.  people used to say before  the  pandemic that they could not understand how i could stay inside and now they say they don't want to go outside. i like to communicate with all nationalities.  I am a christian. my family includes many different cultures  and I would like to communicate with happy people also, all genres. i sometimes feel pretty lonely. ag does not matter. hope to hear from someone soon.

I am a retired high school science teacher that has been isolated by the virus and would like to communicate with someone about their experiences with this lockdown and how they are coping.

Coleen would be great to communicate about how we are making the best of a strange world. Isolation and no in person social interaction with others strikes me as being temporary (be it very long) but a chance to do those things we never had the time. If doesn't get done now probably won't. I even organized my recipes after ages of just throwing them in a drawer. I find Zoom meetings really help. My sister is doing a weightwachers zoom that seems to be great. I have a book club online and our library is offering some zoom classes. Each morning I wake up and say, its going to be a great day and I am going to get something done productive. Through NextDoor the app that connects one to their neighborhood I feel like I'm a little less isolated. But my big joy and social is taking my dog to a dog park and visiting with new people everyday. Let me know how you are coping and the problems and joys you have experienced..

Hello, I am  currently live in Los Angeles, California but will be moving to Las Vegas, Nv. within the next month.  I know the timing is not the best to move but had been planned prior to our country's present situation.  I am 66 years old and love to talk, listen and have great conversation in person, phone and by e-mail.  It would be great to have a new friend to communicate with...Hopefully will hear from you soon..Heart

Hi - Am not real "techy" and not sure if I'm doing this right but would love to have a pen pal - I wrote that I am retired in Orange County, Ca., but from the east coast (originally Philly).  Been to Fla. a few times (have a friend in Marco Island) and like the state.  I live in a townhouse near the beach. If you  would like to continue writing, please reply.  Hope to hear from you.

Dear Claire,

We're having a bit of trouble connecting via this site.  It does get confusing and difficult to find what's what.  I do hope you will check your private messages as I have sent you a couple and I do want to continue our communication.  Please send me a note.  Thank you!!!

Hi c084506256....I am delighted to hear from you!!!  How are you doing in Orange County?

I'd love to hear about you and hope we can become friends.  I am 64 and moved to The Villages, Florida in 2015.  I do miss California...but too expensive.

Thank you for writing.

Hi!

Used to live in FL (for about ten years in Miami) then mved to CA in 1992.  Retired in 2018 from teaching high school English and now teach online.  My name is Sharon, and I have a dog and recently went through construction on my home to add two baths and an upstairs bedroom.  Live in Riverside County.

So tell me how you are filling your retirement hours.  This quarantine in CA has really limited outside activity and cut off lots of what I enjoyed-- like Yoga classes. So let me know what you are up. Look forward to hearing from you.  Sharon

Hi Sharon in Riverside, CA.  Nice to receive your post.  So you moved from Miami to California in 1992.  I didn't want to leave California but....maybe someday I'll be able to visit again.

Your construction project will give you a lot more room.  Do you plan on having lots of visitors or family living with you?  Do you miss your teaching career?  I don't miss working...I was worn out by the time I left.   Hope you will write back.

Hi - I believe you answered a pen pal inquiry of mine but I have just now seen it.  I don't know if you are still interested in on line or snail mail "letters" but if you are, please reply.  I wrote initially that I am retired, living in Orange Co., Ca. but from the east coast.  Have little to no family here but enjoy interaction with people in general.  Hope to hear from you soon.
