My name is Jack Fosdyke and I live in the rural backwaters of Ireland, far removed from life's rushing stream.
I function using one of those "Just as good as brains" that take a little longer to adjust to new ideas, compared to the regulation three pounders issued to nearly everyone else.
My appearance is that of a sprightly old man who has just stepped out of a Victorian music hall and wonders what he should do next....I do have a knowledge of this world but age and experience tells me that there is nought I can do to right it's wrongs.
I therefore tend to ignore life's darker underbelly and concentrate upon it's brighter, more amusing aspect. If there are any like minded persons among you with a similar outlook perhaps they would care to reply.
Thanking you all.
I've just found and joined, Silversurfer when trying to find someone I knew long ago in the late 6Os.
Her name was Jean Ferguson and she lived in Loughton, Essex, Her parents lived in Potter Heigham, Norfolk.
Rather a long shot, but grateful if anyone has any info about her. Thanks in advance.
Have just joined Silversurfers.
The place looks lovely, but it's taking me some time to find my way around.
Am interested in General Chatting, getting to know some new people and possibly making some friends. My interests are Gardening - I have a small garden.
Painting - I go to a weekly class and paint in acrylics - Irish scenes. Interior decor - have just moved house. Theatre. Travel in Ireland.
Am aged 78. Looking forward to meeting you.
Hi to all, I am new and will hopefully make new friends I love eating healthily trying to loose more weight as an OP in June. I love my cat snowy and have lots of family. I love using computers looking for a level 3 course if anyone knows where I can do this please let me know. I love walking and shopping too. And I love my family and my grandchildren they always make me laugh.
Hello I joined Silversurfers last week and am still working my way round the site.
Have been main carer for my mum for the last seven years and it looks like she won't be with us for much longer so it's time for me to get out and about again.
Do quite a bit of voluntary work but it will be good to go out purely for enjoyment - have very few close friends which doesn't help!
I'm in the south Cheshire area if that helps.
Hi Everyone. I have just joined today (27/02/19), so this is new for me.
I am 59, young minded (non-smoker) and live in Bedfordshire. I am happily married, but my wife travels abroad a lot with work, so this leaves me with time on my hands.
I would like to travel, but would prefer a travel buddy/partner to do this with. There are a couple of very contrasting trips that I am really interested in. 1. A long weekend train adventure from London/Paris/St Moritz and then the Bernina express through the Swiss Alps ending in Milan before flying back to the UK. 2. 8-10-day Vietnam tour, Hanoi to Ho Chi Min City I am also looking at other UK/European City breaks or long-haul travel, but of course, open to ideas?
If anyone is interested in getting together to discuss some travel ideas, feel free to get in touch. Funds are not unlimited, but I am happy to look at budget, more upmarket travel ideas, or anywhere in between.
I've just joined so thought I would say hello.. and I wish a warm welcome to the other newbies.
I'm looking for a traveling companion and new friends as it appears I'm the only single person I know in my circle of all married or tied up friends! And they now forget I'm here....
So I've bitten the bullet let's see what Happens! Things can only get better in the social circle stakes. I love the sea and the country way of life..
Don't spend enough time in either but I'm always outdoors.. Just not in the right location!
Looking forward to hearing from any other single surfers who are tired of Going it Alone!
