I forgot to mention that I had a dozen or so "kudos" when I first posted, but there was no interest from anyone to continue. If you wish to know anything about me you'd need to dig through the postings some couple of years back. I like how you introduced yourself. I enjoy writing, so should you find anything interesting about me I am amenable to the exchange of thoughts and life's experiences.
I am glad to exchange communications with you -- at least for awhile. But I am clueless as to how to navigate this site (if it is even legit -- I just called AARP again and they told me that they don't have any such a website; to be sure they gave me the phone number for the AARP Foundation, but I can't call them until tomorrow because they are only open during regular business hours). Also, I have no idea how to check your posts from a couple of years ago, so I know nothing absolutely about you. If you don't mind, please tell me a little, and start with where are you. Thanks!
I am having trouble with this website, which is why I want you to send me your email. Don't worry. I think its pretty safe. Somebody else did and as far as I know nothing bad came of it. Thanks! - Alan

A bit of background: I am 74, twice widowed, no kids. I gave up pooches - as I preferred 40+ lbs, any breed. Shortly after my last one died, I had to take care of my bed-ridden mom; now gone 5 yrs at ripe age of 95-1/2, so had no chance to replace. Now reduced to kitties; have two which some horrible human dumped in my front yard (barely weaned babies) 7 and 3 years ago respectively.
Is it possible to bypass the AARP "crowds" by direct email? I'll be happy to provide mine.
This is Merrilly. I just read another of your posts and we have a awful lot in common. I'd like to be your penpal if you would like to be mine. Tell me and I'll supply my email and you can supply yours so we can write privately.
