by Bobbi
(Indiana, USA)

Guess what? I'm having so much fun since my retirement a few years ago, that I think I forgot to grow old! Would like to hear from others who are enjoying this journey as much as I am, and who, like me, know that age is just a number. Seeking male and female pen pals. I'm a voracious reader, a poet,an aspiring writer, a dreamer, and a movie buff, to name a few.

Dog and Cat lover who dislikes most people is looking for a pen pall

by Carol

I am looking for some old time nice people who have some heart and understanding. Life today is tough especially on seniors. This world is going so fast that nobody stops to smell the roses.

There is a lot more out there than text messaging, Facebook etc. Nobody picks up a phone anymore and calls you to say hi how are you doing. It is all so un-personable, they would rather communicate by texting even if you are in the same room or sitting right across from one another. Now tell me that isn't crazy.

I am NOT an old person just one who knows how good it used to be and wants to meet people that feel the same way.

By the way I do other things beside bitch about the way things are. I am an avid power walker, ex-personal trainer, writer and love life.

Bored retiree needs pals and friends

by Lesley Turner
(Redcliffe, Queensland, Australia)

Hello everyone
My name is Lesley Turner. I am 65 and have been retired for six years, widowed for 15 years. I am a foster parent, having three children in my care, aged 12, 10 and 6. They are all from the same family.

You are wondering why I am bored with three kids in the house, but believe me, I am, not with the kids, but with no adult to talk to.

If there is anyone who would like to talk to me about anything really, I would love to hear from you.

I am interested in many things, including movies, garden, reading, many crafts, but because I am so bored, I don't have any interest in any of them any more.

I know I sound like I am sorry for myself, but I really am not, just looking for some interest in my life. Maybe someone has some ideas about how to get out of the doldrums, or have some ideas about new activities that may interest me.

If you can help in any way, I would really love to hear from you.

My E Mail is

leslieturner at optusnet.com.au

and I would love to hear from you

Time for a coffee break . . .

by Wallace
(B.C. Canada)

In another lifetime I went to work 5 days a week, in another country, writing computer programs. Then a flight from Frankfurt to Vancouver, 9 hours or so, and it was over. I was 57 and retired.

My wife found a job near home and I started to lead a different life. I even bought myself a bicycle to get some exercise. I now work 2 days a week at a local train museum, read more books and try to take decent photographs.

My children have long flown the nest and building their own worlds.

I miss the conversation with other that stimulates thought and ideas so I would like to find a friend in another land to share this time.

So if you would like to join me in friendship then please an email to wallace1 at shaw.ca

Thanks for your time.

Today's Finish Attitude Epiphany

by Jonathan
(Da vis, CA)

Conversation in America:

>> Hey. How’s it going?

<< Can’t complain.

>> Wouldn’t do any good anyway.

<< No, guess not.

>> Nope.

<< Nobody wants to hear it.

I will be 65 years old this year. I think that I need to communicate with someone my own age, preferably from Finland.

The epiphany:

Today’s gestalt on the subject of positive and negative attitude +

Old Movie: “2001 - A Space Odyssey”, Saul Bellow’s Herzog antihero, Holocaust song “Donna” Thus Spake Zarathustra

I live alone since divorce proceedings. First one knee became painful with arthritis. Then the other knee. Which means near immobility; and chronic pain whenever I am not horizontal.

Welcome to getting old.

This could be a “Fate Worse Than Death” Vonnegut book. Like being knee capped from the Mafia. But unexpectedly I find an awareness I was previously blind to. Disabled people = Invisible.

Does this mean I will just sink into self pity, give up, and whine the rest of my days away? Hardly. My mood is more like a “gallows humor”.

Humor has always been a huge part of me anyway.

However I can not abide the usual pretensions That carry the expectation one “have a positive attitude” & “put on a happy face”.

If I am going to know the meaning of “have a positive attitude”, I must come to it authentically and spontaneously.

Floating around in the pool quite a while. No one is making eye contact. Look up into the sky. To my astonishment I notice high up, bird shaped specks flying in formation and aggressively dive bombing one another. Like WWI dog fights.

What are those?! They don’t act like birds. Not like airplanes either. Perhaps hang gliders? Or radio controlled model planes? I watch a long time. Everyone else in the pool seems to be in their own small ? world.

I lay my head back on the Styrofoam noodle flotation and continue watching the show until all the dots fly away. Then they come back again. I recall swimming with dolphins at Dolphins Plus in the Florida Keys.

“I am not a creature of the sky, but I have tremendous respect for them. I am a creature of the water.” Incredible Dolphins. Swimming with them feels like family. They even gather for a family photo.

Then I think of the song we learned in summer camp, first written by children in the Nazi concentration camps, so I hear:

“On a wagon, bound for market, there’s a calf with a mournful eye. High above him, there’s a swallow, winging swiftly through the sky:



There is a REAL ‘’positive attitude!’

My email is still a mess. The address is: electrojon at att.net.

We deserve a break today.

Welcome all Wrinkly travellers

by Brian Scott

Hi everyone, how are you?

My name is Brian Scott, aged 71years and I live in the UK...... well someone has to!..... lol...only joking.

My very good American friend Dennis who live in Miami,just sent me an email and suggested that I give this web site a try,so here I am folks.

A little bit of info about me. I sadly lost my lovely wife 5 years ago a week before Christmas. Since then I've sold the house and use some of the money for my favourite pastime of travel. I usually take around 5 or 6 trips a year,America being one of my favourite destinations,as well as India & Sri Lanka, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, etc.

Naturally as you can imagine its not much fun travelling on your own,so ideally I would love to be able to share the excitement of world travel with a companion to share a few laughs together.

Sorry I haven't got a photo uploaded yet, I tried,but for some reason it wouldn't upload. I'll have a word with the site organiser for some help. Whoops!....lol.... its suddenly appeared and scared the hell outta me!.... lol.....just joshing.

Meanwhile if anyone would like to get in touch,I'd love to hear from you.

Best wishes

Brian Scott

Lets BEE Friends

by Herbie
(White City, Oregon)

I was raised in Southern Oregon. Moved here from Niland County California. My Father worked on the All American Canal. ( The American Side ) hence: (all american) We lived in the desert in a small tent city set up for the workers. At a young age we moved to Southern Oregon.

Will be married 50 years this June. raised 5 children.

In short have had a very happy life. But retirement was not golden as they say so I saw the need to do something. I took up an interest in the Honey Bee. Love it. My hobby is now finding all the information about the bee. I am amazed at all the good things that come from the Hive that we can use...I will never run out of finding out more about the lowly honey bee and what it can give us.

Also, Someday I will complete a book that has been in my mind for a long long time. I am sure it will do well. It's just that I do not have the patience to sit down and write when there is so many other things to do. It is my complete theory about Bigfoot. I have the complete book in my mind but there is so much to put down in writing. (maybe soon)

I also love anything about rocks and minerals. Worked in the sawmills and logged in Oregon and also Alaska for a short time. My favorite books have been from Jack London.

Favorite TV shows have always been the old westerns. Favorite movies have been Shane..White Fang..The Bear.

Hope to hear from anybody who wants to write and share my stories, hobbies, etc. And I want to hear yours to! Let's Talk!!

New to retirement, feel totally isolated, like to hear how its working for you.

by Bob
(Manchester, NJ)

Hi, I’m Bob, SWM, 63yrs. I fully retired last year at 62 to increase my income. I worked the last 30 years in Clinical Engineering as a Certified Biomedical Equipment Specialist and 15 years prior as a Field Service Engineer for navigation (mostly RADAR) and communications equipment in New York.

Since retirement I lived in Florida but could not deal with the humidity. I am currently living in NJ, Fort Dix area. I do not smoke, I do not drink (except on occasions) and I do not do any drugs. I am sociable but a bit private, I like to travel (road trips mostly), play chess, read, watch great movies (big collection), exercise every day, rhetoric, cook when I feel so inclined, a great listener, an animal lover and I enjoy being at home.

I am a friendly, considerate person of a quiet and reserved demeanor and by default, respectful and courteous to all. Being single with no family within 200 miles and twice removed from the environment of my 45 year career, retirement has left me feeling quite disconnected. I did not like living in NYC and so would not return there and NJ is just temporary.

One of my long term ambitions is to settle in PA, NH or TX for the favorable tax treatment of retirees offered by these states. I'd welcome any advice in that regard from fellow retirees in those states.

Other than that I'm curious about how my fellow retirees deal with this void which I've heard is common in retirement. Looking forward to hearing from you. Email me at topaz at usa.com

Sincerely, Bob
