Pen pals

I have been pen palling for a while now does anyone else do this and is there somewhere on the site for this? It would be nice to write to people on here if they were interested.

Good Evening
I am a 61 year old lady, living in Staffordshire with my kitten and my budgie, it can be a bit challenging with these two at times. I enjoy genealogy, gardening, walking and spending time with my children and Grandson. I am just looking to have a nice chat with someone and hopefully to join conversations.

Hi, I have recently joined this site and would be interested in having some pen pals to keep in touch with as I am on my own and with these current restrictions missing interaction with other people.
Response from Onedayatatime made 6 days ago
Hi Fiona. I've never had a pen pal before and would love to be able to communicate with you. I'm a very young at heart 72yr old. Women. Married with three grown up children. Lots of hobbies and interests and enjoy learning about other people and their interests. Hope to hear back from you. Best wishes Brenda.

Hello - I have just joined this site.

I have been retired for a while now and recently returned from living in France, after a divorce, to live in the UK. This is the first time in my life that I have sought a pen-pal, I might have done so sooner but I seem to have had a full enough life with my wife, and multiple activities, including choir, running a book club, attending a French conversation group, hiking and travelling, A few years ago I was also going into the mountains regularly, until an accident cut down activities in this area.

I have 3 children in England, with whom I can share time, but with whom contact is restricted at the moment because of Covid 19. I am also in touch with my ex-wife on a regular basis. And I am in regular touch with friends in the UK and France.

I am looking to have a connection to anyone out there, wherever they may be in the world - male or female, who spends much of their time on their own and who would like to share their experiences and interests with me. I am not looking for romance, but for a meaningful relationship.

Hello Giveupnow - I am using this for the first time. Was actually looking for penpals, but then came across this website - Silversurfers.com
how apropos!
I am just over 60 years old, love music & studied piano for a number of years. Miss playing the piano. Divorced & like to travel, but not during times like these. Hopefully this will soon pass. Do not know much about astronomy but do find it fascinating.
Best wishes to you & your wife

hi there
Well, there's a lot more you have to know about me. I'm also charming, fun to be with, open-minded and a genuine person. I do agree that life is a wonderful to live. I'm a hardworking woman and I give importance to the people around me especially my family that's why I strive hard to earn something like in my daily needs and for my goals and dreams in life. I'm adventurous; I like the beauty of nature and exploring God's wonderful creation. I love going to the beach too. How about you? If you can relate in me, write me and let's talk about life, happiness and love.

I have been searching for a site to find pen pals, but it seems that this idea is no longer in exisstence. I can't understand why.

I would love to have contact with genuine pen pals, not dates et., etc. I live in NW London suburb and have a number of interests, including books, classical music, french, current events and History of Everyday Things. I am female and of advanced years.
Response from Spense made on 20th Nov 2020 22:19:01
Hi Minkele,

I am an older, retired widow in the USA, in West Michigan. specifically. I am interested in having pen pals on the internet or even replying on here and from different parts of the world. I am interested in what life is like for you, what you do, if you are employed. I also read a lot... just about anything. Fantasy, classics, murder mysteries, biographies and esp. have an interest in the history of England. I also enjoy music, the range can depend on the day, from old country, jazz, rock and roll, other genres also. I was raised primarily on classical music and what training I had as a child in piano was classical training. I also went through a period of training for gospel music, however, that did not last long as my teacher moved.

I have always enjoyed traveling, however, it is pretty much vicariously through others rather than my actual traveling. Altho' Michigan is a pretty and diverse state here, my daughter, who lives with me, and I do try to wander about when we have the time. She is a teacher of enrichment classes at one of the charter schools here. Right now, she is teaching gardening, conventional as well as hydroponic, and art.

I am an animal lover. I have always had dogs my entire life. At this point, I do senior rescues of dogs primarily...and because of my age, stick with the smaller breeds, altho' my first love is the larger breeds. My body just doesn't want to cooperate with the care of the larger dogs. We also have a cat that I would classify as a senior, he is getting up there in years also.

I have 2 children, a son and a daughter, 5 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren with 2 more foster girls hopefully coming into the family soon as daughters.

I worked many years with the public and the court system here in Family Court. I also did various clerical jobs, secretarial positions and even worked in a sheet metal shop. (think forming the metal parts of desks, file cabinets and such.) My last employment was for a company that makes the vanes for jet airplane engines. Very interesting and challenging also. Needless to say, I liked the variety over my working years rather than just one job forever.... I would have gone crazy.... Well, hope to hear from you... and that we can connect on a regular basis. Spense.

Hi Spence, I am also an older retired widow living with my daughter in the Welsh Hills,in the boundaries of a National Park with beautiful countryside and hills of Wales to keep me sane in these terrible times. Your list of likes and things you do sounds very much like mine I joined this site just to exchange comments,and keep in touch with the world outside my limits these days. If you are interested in just exchanging comments on life here in the UK and how it is with you in general, that would be fine with me.

Hello Minkele!

I am keen on letter-writing - proper pen, paper, stamps - that sort of thing. I'm quite happily married but I don't see a lot of point in writing to my wife as we are retired and spend all day in each other's company.

I used to write a lot of letter 30 or more years ago, when email and instant electronic messages weren't A Thing. Now I've come to realise that a hand-written letter on good paper written with a quality fountain pen is a work of art and something to treasure. It's also a god way to use up some lockdown time!

I've started a series of correspondences with various people - daughter in Melbourne, sister of a friend (Toronto) - anyone who is interested and will reply.

Haven’t been on for awhile. Gone through a difficult time with the sudden & unexpected loss of my dear brother in August. We were very close & I miss him so much. Then I had a couple of minor health issues and decided (& needed) to get my cataracts done privately & had the first one done last Tuesday. All gone well so far & can’t believe how bad my eyes had become. I can’t wait to get the other one done so I can fully enjoy my bird watching, walking in the countryside & riding my little horse who friends are kindly looking after my for me but I am missing him too. x
Response from Doreen2 made on 7th Nov 2020 14:28:41
Sorry to hear of the loss of your brother, loss of family is so hard, I haven’t got one member of my family left now, so know how bereft you must be feeling, and then having a cataract operation as well , but isn’t it worth having done, it’s like a whole new world out there.
Have you heard from Vicki a lately, watching t.v. there has been a lot of unrest in the south, and the American elections, we just don’t seem to be able to get away from them
How are you getting on with the lock down, you are same as me, living in an area with open country side, I count my blessings being able to still get out and about, as there are no people around
Take care of yourself Gillian I hope the world will look a happier place for you soon
Response from Tawny made on 10th Nov 2020 22:56:39 > @Doreen2
Hi Doreen. Thank you for your kind words. It’s so difficult isn’t it, even more so at the moment as we would chat every evening & now the evenings are long & dark it’s very empty. But I mustn’t let it get me down, the world seems in such chaos and like you I am thankful for where I live and the life I have with my little horse Norman. So pleased with my cataract op - what a difference & now realise how much it had been creeping up on me and affecting my sight. Looking forward to getting my other one done in 3 weeks and having both eyes working 100%.
I haven’t heard from Vicky and watching the situation in America, again I am thankful for where we live. I hope all is okay with her & we hear from her soon.
Glad you are okay too, it’s good to hear. Stay safe. Gillian x
Response from Doreen2 made on 18th Nov 2020 07:48:19 > @Tawny
Pleased you are soon going to have your next cataract operation, isn’t it a straightforward procedure now, just before I had mine done one of my neighbours had had hers done, she had four injections and her face was black and blue with bruises, and it hadn’t been a pleasant experience, but that is how it was done, I went and because of backlogs (I am talking about over ten years ago now). They opened a clinic in Boston, it was private operations done on the national health, and it was a Swedish team, I had my op on the first day it opened, and of course it was just drops in the eyes which is the normal procedure now, i think I was so fortunate
I think that is what we have to do now, count our blessings, my husband died in February I nursed him day and night for seven years, but we were able to be together when he died, and I dread to think what it would be like caring for someone now, when doctors and nurses have so much to do, as I had so much support from them all
I used to wish there were more hours in-the day, I had so much to do, as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for. The days are so long and lonely now
All good wishes for your next operation Gillian
Take care

Hello Lynn
So nice of you to respond, an act of kindness makes all the difference doesn’t it, do you have family, I know Essex fairly well, where about are you, I used to live in Northampton. We moved to the coast 25 years ago when we retired, it’s ideal for walks on the beach, the waves rolling in can be very therapeutic
As you saw my letter was to Gillian, it is lovely to have someone to keep in contact with, we used to have contact with Vicki in America, but we haven’t heard from her for quite a while
Yes the days are long, I also have trouble with the nights, my body has got so used to having to get up every two hours or so, I can’t get my body clock to sleep through the night, I’ve almost given it up as a bad job, I make a cup of tea and settle down to read a good book.
Take care of yourself Lynn, it would be nice to hear from you again if you have the time
Response from Tawny made on 22nd Nov 2020 21:50:40 > @Doreen2
Thank you, just 8 days before my second cataract op! Yes, mine was all done with drops and very quick, about 12 mins for the procedure. Absolutely amazing, I must say. I decided to go private for mine, to get them done. Luckily I had a bit of redundancy money which I have used. I’m so very sorry you lost your husband last February after caring for him for so long but pleased you were together when he passed away. So very different & difficult now. With my brother gone I find it difficult - we would speak every day often in the evening and as you say, days seem so long and empty. But, only 4 weeks to the shortest day then it’s a minute a day, it starts to creep out again!!
Well, take care of yourself and be in touch again soon.
Gillian

Dear Doreen2,
I am very sorry for your great loss. I too am close to my brother and just the thought of him passing is heart breaking. How hard it is to get going again once a loved one passes. I know that with time and prayer the pain will get less painful. My prayers for you...God Bless...

I am at this time planning to move to Tenerife with my brother and we both hope to find a new and exciting life change than living here in Northern Virginia. I am hoping to sell my property and make the move once covid is controlled with a vaccine.

This is my first post since I am brand new on this site. I am sorry if my letter is not too long...

yours,

RoyalTern

Hi RoyalTern,
You have taken the first step to joining in a conversation, and that’s how I think it works, I converse with Tawny, who is Gillian, and Lynn joined in last week, as I mentioned to Lynn we used to write to Vicki in America but haven’t heard from her in a while, so do join in, all you have to do is reply to a conversation
Aren’t you planning a big move, we thought we were quite cavalier when we moved from Northampton to the coast to retire, but it was worth it as it is ideal here for retirement
I do appreciate your kind thoughts, it’s times like this you realise just how many nice people there are around
Was nice to hear from you
Response from Doreen2 made on 23rd Nov 2020 19:09:49 > @Tawny
You will be be pleased to get the second op over, even though it is now such an easy procedure. How sensible to go private as there must be quite a waiting list now, as so many operations have been put on hold, are you having it done at the local hospital or have you had to go further afield
Have you noticed Lynn and RoyalTern ( haven’t learned her name yet) have joined in our conversation, they had just come on to the site, and it is very hard to take the first step of contacting someone
After the shortest day it is surprising just how you notice the difference those minutes make
Will have fingers crossed for you do take care
Will look forward to hearing from you when you are seeing clearly again with both eyes
Doreen

Hi RoyalTern
Welcome.
As Doreen2 writes, we have been writing to each other and also to Vikki in America, but haven’t heard from her in awhile. Hope she is safe.
Letters are never too long! I hope you & your brother are successful in your plans to go to Tenerife next year, let’s hope 2021 is a much better year for everyone.
As you may of seen I tragically & unexpectedly lost my brother back in August, so important to spend time together. We had a great relationship & thankfully I have the same with his three children.
Well, hope to hear from you again, take care, Gillian
Response from Tawny made on 27th Nov 2020 20:30:45 > @Lynnie55
Hi Lynn & welcome.
I write with Doreen2 and recently introduced myself to RoyalTern.
I use to live in South London but have been on the coast in West Sussex for the last 45 years.
Hope you are keeping safe and well. Maybe hear from you in time.
