Hi Happy hacker
Also looking for someone to chat on line to . Newly retired I'm trying to find things to do , I have joined an art class and become a volunteer receptionist for a community group . I've often thought about learning the piano but not sure if I could master it. I suppose I should just go for it . In fact me trying to learn the piano would probably be hilarious !

Hi Happyhacker

Yes, would like to chat with you - have similar interests, apart from the allotment, my gardening skills are very limited! Music? yes, I've played keyboards all my life and would be happy to hear about your progress on the piano.
Like the movies, too - I've recently discovered the joys of daytime cinema.
Cynical about life - yes, life can make you that way, we just have to see the funny side, too.

Hi happyhacker
Like you I am very cynical about life but I love laughter it is my medicine but I find so many people as they get older lose their sense of humour.
Have you been successful with your allotment they have become very popular here in Kent mind you my friend lost most of her vegetables this summer they believe it was gypsies understandably she was very upset. I love the piano but never had lessons I am trying to teach myself to play the ukulele but with little success I have threatened my friends they will see me busking in Canterbury.
Anyway if you would like to chat feel free.

I'm always happy to chat but I do have my own lovely cynic at home 🙂 We enjoy walking and my poor piano is just crying out for some attention! I read a lot to try & broaden my horizons.
