Hi from Scotland

Hello. I’m Mike. Just joined out of curiosity really. I’m 69 (for just a few more weeks) All the boring stuff about me is in my profile. I’ll be happy to just chat. Not looking for partner or anything. Or any arguments. I moved from London to Central Scotland 6 months ago. My hobbies include bird watching, Plane spotting, Photography & video & computers.

Hi Mike. Like you, I am curious about this site. If you would like to chat with me I"ll be happy to respond. I just turned 70. I am a retired high school teacher. My native language is Spanish, but I have lived in the States most of my life. I am fortunate to live in a big city that offers so much in terms of culture, music, theater, etc, .... if it weren't for the pandemic. My passion is traveling and just before the pandemic started, I had booked a trip to Malta. In June I was going to Vancouver to visit a friend, and in September I was going to be in Spain for a month. Oh, well. I will have to wait. And in case you are wondering, I am not looking for a partner either. Just someone with whom I can exchange ideas. We have different backgrounds, so it should be interesting to find out more about each other.

Hello Mike,
I am in California. I am not looking for anything either. Maybe just someone to chat with once in a while.
Today was a beautiful sunny day, and now the clouds are rolling in, and it’s beginning to rain which makes it a perfect day because my flowers will get plenty of water.
I love planting flowers, and baking, and my little Gypsy. She is 3 lbs. of Chihuahua, but she thinks she’s a big dog.♥️ Tomorrow morning we will go walking along the river trail before it gets too hot.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Blessings,
Debbie

Not sure how this works but I live in Scotland, love my gargen birds, paint, felt, still working, could have retired last year but my husband died and wanted the contact of my colleagues, lonely. I guess like a lot of people. Hope you are well ,not a lot of planes to spot at the moment

Hello Christineloy101,

I am wondering whether you had any replies here as I have just found you amongst some 'archaic' posts and therefore feel you may have been overlooked. I have just typed in 'Scotland' as I thought I would peruse who is on here from my favourite areas...and maybe get to chat.
What is it you do? I hope you are taking some comfort in having your colleagues around you....(I can see it would be quite a change to completely be without 'company' and things must've been hard enough without your partner...I am sorry).
I am from Dorset, 56, used to 'paint' as a form of art (but mostly charcoal sketches, pen & ink scribblings (but not for awhile)...now I 'paint & decorate' but currently am on a break!!! (enough said)
I love reading, writing, socialising, enjoy my garden, nature, wildlife, country-life, walking, music and riding-pillion.
If you'd like to chat, I am here.

Hi everyone, i've just joined. Born and lived in Edinburgh until I was 12, then moved to London. Returned to Scotland, near Dundee 10 years ago, and now happily retired with hubby and most of the family here too.

Hello spectrumlady

A while ago you were searching to make like-minded friends from your local area as have many of our other existing members and until now, this has not been easy to do. I am now delighted to say that we have just launched Local Community- a new area on the website that can associate your postal district with other members in the same geo location as you, if you wish to. This means that our members can offer each other support and assistance and connect with new friends in their area. Local Community will also enable you to find local events (in the future!), resources and news from fellow members and local businesses. We are inviting you to be one of the first members to use this section, so feel free to post a new topic to reach out to members in your local area. Here is the link to the new Local Community section - https://www.silversurfers.com/silversurfers-local/

Best wishes,

Hello,
I joined a while back...then forgot I had joined (I'm 74 for goodness sake). Came here to join and they said - you're already joined. Anyone else get these days?
I'm in Central Scotland and dabble in arts and crafts between taking Rosie the dog for long walks through the woods and up the hills.
Response from IssyL made on 2nd Nov 2019 17:14:47
Hi greenglen, I too am crafty. I make jewellery. I weave wite and use Crystal's and Pearl's in my work.

Hello from Oldham, Lancashire.

I would like a friendship (Purely Friendship no Romance.) with someone in their late 60's. Must be active without being obsessive. Would be great if you had a friendly dog as I have one I walk twice a day. Do you like going out for a drive, lunch, day out to the coast and like a glass of wine without being an alcoholic (HA). Sense of Human. If so I would like to hear from you.

Jean aged 71 but like to think I don't act it
