Looking to connect and make new friends

Hi everyone. Having watched Jim Carey’s movie ‘Yes’ awhile back and sadly lost my best friend to cancer last year I decided to take the plunge and try something new - hence signing up for Silversurfers.

I like walking, eating, science, art, reading and generally learning about new things. I am looking to make new friends and stimulate my brain.

Having grown up children and an emptying nest it’s time I filled my life with things for me and enjoy my life rather than dread older age.

Looking forward to hearing from like-minded souls.

Hi Mosquito,

I have only just found my way back to my original message so no worries. It is taking me some time to find my way around this site.

Would love to chat when you have time. I hope you enjoyed your book? What was it called?

Must admit my Christmas list is mainly full of books and I swear that in a previous life I must have been a librarian as I love books so much. I still like actual books - I haven't quite developed the same passion for Kindle and the like!

Hope to hear from you soon,

Hello to you. My name is Peter (although I prefer 'Pete'. I live in South Devon, near the sea. You appear to like many of the things that I do and I would add that I like animals (especially dogs) and music (particularly classical).

Happy to chat if you would like to?

Kind regards,

Hi Pete. Lovely to hear from you. It's taken me awhile to relocate my initial message as I am still feeling my way around the site.

South Devon and near the sea - how lovely. That must make for some stunning walks around the coast? Especially during this second lockdown!

What types of music do you like apart from classical? Must admit I am a bit of a rock chick, but classical is nice to.

I am an aspiring artist - the word aspiring being the most true. I always liked art as a child, but somehow found my way into science and worked as a scientist for many years, but as I now have more time on my hands I am returning to trying my hand at art.

What about you?
Kind regards,
