Hello from Northern Indiana, USA looking for a pen pal

Hi,


I am a farm gal, 65, widowed, mother of adult children (6 sons, 1 daughter)


I hope someone from England, Australia, Scotland or Ireland be interested in an American farm gal penpal. I have ancestors and family in all the countries I mentioned but doubt I shall ever know who they are though I have learned and emailed my, only recently learned of, Canadian family which turns out to be about, 80% of my actual family!  Anyway, I think it would be grand to make new very long distance friends though I am very new at this method. I raise organic, free-range chickens that are never killed, but die of old age. My rooster is 16 years old😃 and he's a jolly old fellow named Joseph. I have about 25+ laying hens, 4 banty young roosters and my Joe. I am Blessed with my beautiful Pomeranian, Opy who is the "apple of my eye" as the saying goes😃. He'sa fine little (17#'s) chap that is very clever. He is also my service dog. I live on a large dairy farm and enjoy the lowing of the cattle day and night😄. I am a retired semi tanker driver, an Army veteran from VietNam and I am a Conservative Mennonite Christian lady.


I love Jesus. I hope someone will reach back to me😁. Blessings, Brook

Hi Brook, I would love to be an e-penpal? Probably not up for letter exchanges as they take forever these days so if that's something you were looking for I may not be the right person.
I'm 60 and live in the UK. Like you I was widowed in 2013 when my husband died on his way to work in a car accident. I have one grown up son who is married with 4 young children and a grown up daughter who lives at home. We also have a 20 week old black Lab puppy who certainly keeps me busy! I volunteer with a UK based crisis line, something that I really love. I enjoy singing, travel, TV, sewing, crochet and baking. And last but not least I am also a regular churchgoer, it's just part of who I am but I'm happy to make friends too with likeminded people who don't have a faith. Hope to hear from you sometime! Lyn 🙂
