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.

Periodic Contributor

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 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

I am 68 and live in Colorado. Just seeking male friends that love the Lord.  He is blessing all that are breathing this day. A couple of weeks ago I was struggling with lonelines. I read a article from Jimmy Swaggert ministries about the issue and I expected the fact that God is always with me and the struggle ceased. Praise God his live endureth forever. Kent

  I think there are a couple of things that make gaining a pen pal difficult on this site. After the breaches with Sony, Experian, Banks and Credit Card Companies, I became very conservative and cautious about putting myself out there. Also within this aarp site after reviewing aarp's privacy and ownership policies, I was not that comfortable about putting and keeping whatever I decided to share out there forever. 

 

The web is incredibly invasive; we are all tracked and monitored and nothing is private and nothing can be permanently deleted; we are all being monetized on every site we visit –everything we do is up for sale: some Unknown Company makes money capturing then selling our information to some other Unknown

Company to purchase who then merchandizes our information --I just do not like this!  And these Unknown Companies are not good at sharing --where is my slice of this Money-Making Pie?

 

Aside from those issues I think it is just darn difficult to connect to a human being via the written word.  It also takes a lot of dedication and commitment which can easily slack off.  There is no warmth or connection received by looking at a white page with black print, there is no exchange of a laugh –there is just no human connection, which is what is being sought and which is what we all need  –a human connection.  So, if anyone has any ideas to make this better, please do share!  Thank you and a Hug to everyone.

Periodic Contributor

Sure you can connect.  For me, writing's always been the best way to really say what I feel.  I'll be 74 in March and have been writing my thoughts and feelings to everyone I've ever known most of my life.

 

I'm doing this to connect with other people.  I'm lonely.  My family's either dead or gone away.  My friends disappeared during the years I cared for my mom through her Alzheimer's.  I work for Aflac kind of full time but that doesn't really connect with many people.

 

So I want to find someone I can share with and this seems a good way to do it.  If you're game, we can try.
