Judy Wright, 67, Indianapolis, IN, USA

by Judy
(Indianapolis, IN USA)

Dear pen pal to be,
My name is Judy Wright. My age is 67, and I live in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

When I was young, I had a pen pal from the Lincolnshire area. We were pen pals for many years, and we were young and loved Elvis. Now, I am (!) old and still love Elvis.

I have always had this yearning to come to England. My Family is from there, so it must be in the blood, huh? Maybe, hopefully, I will be able to fly over someday.

Right out of high school, I was employed by Eli Lilly and Company. It a pharmaceutical company. At that time it was family owned, and the company felt like a family.

I was married at the age of 20, for 24 years, no children(very unfortunate). I raised dogs; Samoyeds. We used to show, and participate in obedience. It was a great time. Now, I am retired, in 1993. I am busy with yard work, and I still have two dogs. One a Laborador Retriever and an English Springer Spaniel. I'm sure I will tell you more about them if you contact me. I love to cook and most of all bake. I love to play cards, listen to music (be it classical, Elvis, I like some country, Elton John,etc.)

I'm really not a very interesting person, but I have fun and live life. I am only interested in a woman, from England, Scotland, and only A FRIEND. NO SEX

(Brooklyn, New York )

Dear Pen Pal,
I do not know what to write but would be so glad doing so. I am a woman african american 60 years old who had to retired due to being laid off and illness. But to be honest I would have worked the two years more to get unemployment but life is such that it did not happen.

I will be only too happy to write back to someone when they write me. I do not have a camera so I cannot put pictures up. But hope to hear from you soon.

I love reading when possible bit sick now , like poetry, even Shakespeare because that is how I started. I have worked as a elementary special education teacher and the last job with the state as a job program specialist. That is someone who helps others get jobs. I am a people person so I loved both of these jobs. But life changes...

Sharon, 67, Phoenix, Arizona

I am a married 67 year old lady looking for other senior lady pen pals to share life experiences with.

My primary home is in Bend, Oregon but my husband and I bought a business in Arizona so are living here now. We hope to retire from the business and return to Oregon someday soon.

I used to live in Alaska and on a ranch in Wyoming, so I love the outdoors, fishing and target shooting. Can't find many ladies interested in that.

But I also love reading, gardening, travel and animals. I have traveled quite a bit in Asia and Central America.

I love Cocker Spaniels too. Just lost my Molly who was 11 years old.

Hope to hear from some other pen pal ladies across the country.

I lost my husband in Feb. 2011. It was a very sad time. We were married for 44 years, and dated 2 years before then.

We have 3 children. Everything is so new to me, simply little things seems so hard now.

But all I can do is to put one feet in front of the other and step into each day now without him.

Would love to hear from someone, I don't do much but go to church and I love to collect odd and antique things.

I write poetry and short stories, and I keep a journal that has been helpful. Would love to hear how widows have faced there life without their spouse.

Hello everybody.
I think it is great to talk about the old days. I was a rock and roller. I loved Elvis, Little Richard, I loved watching the Dick Clark show. Had to see who was with who everyday.

I loved my record player, my transistor radio
which I could only get one station. At night
I could only get one station so far away it was
mostly static.

I remember the stroll, the the stomp, the skating

Oh, the hot rod cars, there will never be another
time in history like our hot rods and drags. The
black 55 chevy was the greatest.

New Widow: Sheila 69 Florida

I recently became a widow and am looking for new friends. This was my second marriage and we were together 20 years. He was the love of my life and I really miss him but am trying to get on with my life.

I like to cook and still continue to do so even though it is only for me. I like to read, especially romance novels. I play bingo twice a week and enjoy the game and being with other people.

I am a big animal lover. At the present time I have 2 dogs - a poodle and a cocker mix (with 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye). I also have an inside cat (part Siamese with blue eyes) and an outside cat who adopted me (and vice versa) when someone abandoned her. All my animals are and have been rescued.

I recently got a new computer and enjoy playing games, etc. I used to collect clowns and still have a large collection although I haven't bought any new ones recently. I enjoy taping my favorite programs on my DVR and then watching them at my leisure. I have been retired for 5 years and live in a retirement community near Ft Lauderdale.

Linda B Age 54 Michigan

Hello, I may literally live in Michigan but New York in my mind. I enjoy the arts, intrigue, reading, writing and getting to know people with something to say.

I can be a very black and white thinker but I'm also known for listening to other people's views and perspectives. I get along with anyone who is mostly positive and upbeat (maybe not sickly sweet positive - we all do have issues.)

I do tend to draw people who need someone to listen to them but I may not have any answers. Just a hug or understanding with a mix of pulling you up by your boots straps if that's what you need.

If I write or someone writes to me, I like to keep it interesting, even bordering on fantasy. I have a door in my mind that I never get to open. If you love to write, read or think outside the box, I'm sure we could have a wonderful time talking. If it's all about the weather, unless it's raining cats or dogs, we may run out of things to say within the first few letters.

I love a good challenge or someone who is clever and "gets it." Please feel free to write, man or woman but please be a senior so we have life experiences to talk about.

Thanks and have a great day!

I love to read and pick out many books from the Library. Just finished "The Murder of King Tut" by James Patterson. A bit different from his other books.

It would be so nice to hear from people from other countries and discuss our differences, family and exchange news. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Catherine G., 51, Ontario, Canada

by Catherine G
(Ontario, Canada)

I would love to chat with both men and women from around the world who are similar in characteristic traits, interests and age as myself. I've tried other pen pal sites and found them unsatisfying because it was difficult to find people from my own era in which we would have similar backgrounds, and so I'm now trying this website in hopes of finding pen pals in which to chat with since I'm now a senior myself. (Where does the time go!)

I find it great that technology allows us to be able to instantly chat with someone anywhere in the world, whereas in the old days we had to write back and forth to a pen pal which took up to weeks to receive a letter and the news was outdated by the time you received your mail! Instantly connecting with people online and chatting in real time is much more satisfying.

Personality wise I would say that I am upbeat, caring intelligent, honest and inquisitive. I like to learn about different people, cultures, places and things. I possess a wry, sometimes off-the-wall sense of humour which usually comes out after chatting with me for a bit, but it's always with a twinkle in my eye.

My interests and hobbies are wide-ranging. I enjoy travelling, reading, tea houses/rooms for high tea, theatre/movies, scenic drives, logic puzzles, pets, reading, art appreciation, museums, festivals, alfresco dining, computers, being near water, historical sites, antiques and of course meeting and chatting with people. I especially like refinishing furniture and have been doing this for years.

I would very much like to hear from people who would like to chat online to get to know one another and hopefully in time we can become long-distance good friends.

Recently widowed.. going through a lot of feelings that are difficult to manage. Having a hard time getting back to work and on track. I've enclosed my info to correspond.

Sincerely, Millie

Shay 69 Big Island Hawaii


Looking to turn on my computer and see "you have mail"....

I live in a rainforest on the Big Island of Hawaii near Kileau Volcano. My 7 dogs and 2 cats have a wonderful life together but I now am ready to chat thru emails with a two legged. I do lean towards being a recluse. Retired (of course) pet groomer.

I am painfully honest and expect that from others.... nothing worse than receiving words that do not match behavior!! Love a good book about other cultures.... being forced into one of those ereaders or whatever they are called as all bookstores have been closed on this island. Nothing better than opening a new book and holding it in your hands... hmmmm truly am feeling like a cave women with these new fangled inventions... hhahaha

I love a good laugh and a sense of humor will definitely catch my attention. Been on the island over 25 years so am definitely 'local'.

I love to play MahJong. I do not like "eldery/senior center"...

Let's talk story.

Hello, first time here looking around. Work through the week delivering building material. Care for my disabled wife.

Not alot of spare time but not much meaningful interaction with others it seems. Maybe can find a few interested souls here to visit with as we can time to time.

Listen to alot of radio and WAY TOO MUCH politics but interested in the machinations of how our government does or does not function.

I'm way behind the technology curve in keeping up with computers and all the latest in that field. Maybe can learn from someone to upgrade.

Try to be mindful of a healthy lifestyle if not near enough excersize in what we eat. Don't smoke, drink some.

So we'll see how it goes. Thank you for reading this. Take Care, Ron

it's me

it's me

Hi, They call me Howie which is a shortened version of Howard. You see my age, which I am pretty proud of. I say this because of those that never made it far, and think I am pretty lucky. Guess God has some further plans for me.

Originally from New York, then moved to Florida and now back to Charlotte, NC where i had previously lived before moving to Florida.
I am the proud father of 4 boys, who are all graduates of college. They also live in the state of NC.

I am married for the second time. My first marriage lasted for 27 years before it ended. Not by my choice, and it broke my heart. My second marriage has lasted 12 years, but it too is coming to an end.

My wife has developed dementia, and I have watched her mind deteriorate. She no longer knows if we are married, where I live, and at times who I am. It is because of being a caretaker, which is an endless job, that I have lost communications with many other people.

I've always enjoyed chatting on many different subjects and now I find I have no one to do this with. This is the reason I have chosen to try this internet method of finding friends. It would be nice to find a person to chat with every so often.

I would especially like hearing from some nice lady, about my age and who is also looking to make a new friend. I have no idea where a friendship such as this may lead to but then no one ever knows.

My enjoyments are many ranging from being a good shopper, to dance. I like to read, watch TV, having fun, teasing, and I do like most sports. As stated before I also like to talk.

If anyone finds this intro to their liking I'd enjoy hearing from you.

Have a great day and God bless. Howie S.

I'm a 63 year old widow looking for lots of new friends. Even though I'm really looking to meet people in person to spend my time with, I think pen pals could be cool too. I don't really want to talk about my interests here... as that is what e-mail is for.

Joseph Kainikkara, 60 years,Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

I am Joseph Kainikkara,an Indian from the beautiful state of Kerala. I graduated in Economics and post-graduated in Political Science. I have worked as a Government Officer, Purchase Manager of a newspaper group and also as a news reporter in Kerala.

I have been working in the Middle East (UAE & Bahrain) for quite some time, first in the Finance Department of U.S. and Japanese MNCs and presently as officer of a large real estate company.

My interests include reading (now limited to news and news analysis only), travel, TV viewing, social, cultural and political activities etc.

I have an unshakable faith in the Almighty but absolutely not religious faith.

My family consists of my wife who is Beautician and Yoga Instructor and a daughter and son. My daughter is an Engineer and the son an Accounts graduate. Both are employed in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Back home, I was actively associated with Pain and Palliative Care Society, Red Cross Society, Consumer Protection Society, Traders' Association and the local politics. I am also into Education Consultancy Service and Ayurvedic Healthcare Tourism marketing.

Now, with the advent of old age and associated ailments and the family not with me, I have been feeling a lot of loneliness and would treasure the friendship of like-minded individuals of either sex

Ragnar Tjarnstrom, 82, Sweden

by Ragnar Tjarnstrom
(Skelleftea, Sweden)

I am Swedish living in a town near the Arctic Circle. The Gulf Stream makes living quite OK, though.

I am married and have one son. My hobbies are reading history, detective stories, magazines. Walking along the Path of Health running along the nearby river is good exercise.

I hope to hear from people young at heart who would like to tell me about their way of life, experiences .... I certainly would be happy to write about how we enjoy our life in this remote part of the globe.

Bama, 64, Alabama

by Becky

Hi, I'm Bama a retired teacher, who really enjoys her retirement. I like not having to push a time clock and doing things when I want and not when I have to . I lost my husband to cancer 4 years after my retirement and. for once I had nothing to do and no one to care for---that was a big adjustment.

I then kind of tried to discover myself like what I enjoyed and what did I like to do. So I got busy with scrap booking, had time to read books, and got involved with my best friend--my computer. I discovered that a computer can be a lifesaver because i have made so many good friends. I even have my own email group and really enjoy that, we are like one big happy family and have great discussions.

I met someone who lost his wife and now we just take one day at a time, make the most of everyday and have fun sharing our lives with each other. Would really like to hear from people with the same interests who want to become pen pals. Thanks and have a good day, Bama
