Senior Pals wanted

by mildred

Today is my lucky day! Because I have been searching for seniors who have like interest as me. I am 77 years old, live in the city in Tn., have 3 birth children in their 50's, and one adorable adopted son who is 18. It is challenging each and every day that I live. We have 2 dachunds, one is long haired and bright red and belongs to my son , answers to Coco. Mine is a mix of short and long haired,red,8 years old and is my constant companion. We each sleep w/ our own dog.

I have endured may health problems but w/ my selected memory I forget the past surgeries and travel on.

I am a home body, enjoy the computer, small area to garden, flowers, being frugal, investing in real estate,trying to teach my son to be frugal and so far he is doing ok. He can find groceries w/ a coupon easier than me.

I would like to find a pen pal around my age who shares some of the same interests as I do. Thank u for reading so far. Have a wonderful day.

Why is it 'SO' difficult for an old man to find a female pen pal?

Wendy: It is not. Join the Community and find plenty of senior ladies for friendship.

Still looking for friends, penpals etc.?
by: Ken San Diego

If you ever need a "pen (email now) pal ... feel free to contact me. I have plenty of time between looking at the internet, youtube, facebook, and sites like "How to be happy when you finally Retire" "How to tell your doctor to stop calling you!" etc. LOL

I live in Southern Ca, and like to take day trips to LA etc. even just for lunch! (the one thing I learned though...when a friend wants to join you, make sure to tell them "the cost is : $.... otherwise they think you are treating them..(Don't I know!) Have fun!

Pen Pals

Hi Mildred, I know TN. It is a beautiful state.

I am familiar with "The Elephant Sanctuary"; that sanctuary is in Hohenwald. I love that the Sanctuary takes care of old and abused elephants from circuses and zoos.

I hope you have found some nice pen pals and enjoy all of the info that you are getting from them.

Inky Trails News

Friends and Roommates
by: Brent Carver/Thousand Oaks CA

Dear fellow retirees,

I live in Southern CA. (Not bragging for sure)and it's Not cheap. It's nice, but lacks the closeness of community. I would love to find friends and, potentially a roommate or two.

Finding compatable roommates may not be that easy by this age (70) but I tend to really like about everyone I meet. I love getting together with friends and having that mutual support. It would certainly help on the financial end and nice to know everyone had each other's back.

My kids are not in a position to accomodate me and I would rather live with my peers.

I'm active and healthy. Would really like to find some people with like mind to maybe look at rooming. At least getting together.

I will try to find a place on this site to post my interests and hope to find some like minded friends.
