Gordon G K, 61, Reading,UK

by Gordon G
(Reading, UK)

I am a former member of British Armed Forces and served thirty-four years as an Electrical Engineer - over the last fifteen years however, I worked as a military analyst in two of the MOD’s largest Headquarters within the UK.

I commenced life in Edinburgh in mid-1950, following some eighteen months in the 1960s workplace, (post-school years) – I opted to leave the land of my birth in a quest to discover Shangri-la – courtesy of the Australian government and the then ubiquitous £10.00 emigration scheme – a life-saving measure for many lads such as myself – the same who had nothing more to offer than boyish good looks and cherubic smiles – and precious little in the 3-R’s department – sadly, during that austere era, I fell appropriately into the ranks of such common-place mediocrity.

My reasons for taking flight at such an early age were largely two-fold - firstly, I had become weary of looking at my hard-working father and seeing myself at fifty-two years of age - secondly, I was constantly haunted by the words of a former maths teacher, one Mr Frew, or ‘SS-Gruppenführer’ Frew as I mischievously referred to him. Frew’s written appreciation of my educational worth on a final school report was dreadful at best, most accurate but dreadful nonetheless.

He commented, with much vigour and glee no doubt, that yours truly possessed little more than a football for a brain, adding further that the substance that inflated the afore-mentioned sporting accessory, was in fact the same invisible mass that occupied the void between my left and right ear!

I determined therefore, if I was doomed to catastrophe in adult life then my failures would be well out of his line-of-sight – he lived only three doors up from our family home – not a pleasant arrangement by any stretch of the imagination

Subsequently, I left town and headed for antipodean shores, settling initially in Sydney and then moving on to both Melbourne and Adelaide. I applied for Australian citizenship in 1968 and this development had near life-changing consequences - in that I was placed in the Draft for Vietnam – I can happily report that I avoided seeing the sunny “sights” of either Hanoi and Saigon by a mere one day - my birthday falls on the 15th of June – the Australian government pleasingly called-up those whose birthdays fell on the 13th, 14th and 16th of June! I took a number of jobs during my first couple first couple of years down-under, but eventually settled and advanced within the advertising industry, wrongfully ascertaining at one point that my destiny lay in the media and all it entailed – superb days indeed - fate on the other hand - had another card to play.

I remained on my travels until I reached 25 years of age, visiting numerous countries including, South Africa, Angola, Rhodesia, (as was) Zambia, Mozambique, Timor Islands, New Guinea and New Zealand.

I returned to the UK in November of 1975, (God alone knows why) and failed miserably in adjusting to the meteorological and financial conditions that prevailed during the period. – (One may rightfully assert that little, if anything has truly changed over the last three and half decades).

Following my enlistment into the British Armed Forces during January 1976, I served in a number of locations worldwide – Northern Ireland at the height of the troubles, being quite easily the most difficult and demanding of all operational arenas I was engaged in.

I married in 1979 and have two grown children, (son & daughter) following School, College and University educational demands, they both embarked on careers within the professional infrastructure, the eldest now in senior management within the leisure industry - our youngest being on the threshold of a career as a commercial pilot. My wife remains as a Senior Nurse and has worked in the specialist areas of paediatric and geriatric care.

I played much sport whilst in the army and to this day, I continue to maintain my fitness levels with 5-time weekly visits to the gymnasium. The old saying that refers to taking a boy out of the army but never taking the army out of the boy, sums up largely my general approach to life modern-day really – I would dearly love to see some of the values and standards that were once so prevalent, being restored into many sections of our failing community present time – losing battle methinks!

My sporting interests are golf, (12-handicap) plus Football, Rugby and Darts – the latter enthusing me as much as anything I may watch on a football/rugby field or Olympic stadium.

I possess a qualification in Journalism, (amongst a number of other educational milestones) and continue to write frequently on both sporting and political developments. My reading is largely autobiographical and biographical; anything relating to sport, politics or the great literary masters has special appeal. My musical taste is eclectic – nevertheless, there remains little, if anything that falls-out of the X-Factor genre that interests me.

The same must be said for tabloid television as a whole, I’m what many may consider as sterile in my personal programming selection – I do like drama, (Commercial-free productions where possible) and anything pertaining to the historical. Each morning sees me making for the radio – passionately genuflecting the moment I hear the dulcet tones of ‘God’ – one John Humphrey’s – I’m a ‘Today’ programme “junkie” and very proud of the fact too – British broadcasting is alive and well on this side of the dial – it is in addition, one of the last electronic destinations in Britain, where one may tune into a service where copious renditions of the Queens English can still be heard – such joy!

I adore food, (especially Thai) and indeed fine wine – particularly when taken with good company and exquisite music in the background. I do like to think of myself as a romantic but when one reaches a certain vintage, one feels out-of-it somewhat – pity really.

My aspirations for the future are quite simple; I adore the Far East and very much wish to settle there – well away from the maddening crowd so to speak.

Furthermore, my aim is to live a very long and full life, to reach 120 years of age would be quite splendid. At that particular juncture, when the Grim Reaper comes a-calling - to pass away quietly in one's sleep remains the kind of peaceful conclusion I desire. If I must suffer a violent termination at that advanced age, then let it please be a speedy transportation into the hereafter - something akin to a shotgun blast at the hands of the jealous husband whose wife I have just been making love to – this too, I would settle on as an acceptable passing from Mother Earth.

My aim in joining this site is to establish communication with people of a similar thought-process. Despite the fact that I continue to produce material for the MOD from my study at home, I nevertheless do not feel inspired with my existence present- time; retirement can bring some awful and unforeseen woes.

I need a spark, something to re-ignite and restore my lines of communication, but with a new and fresh breed of souls – I trust therefore that this communiqué may see my yearning realised.

Rick Sluss; 60; Milwaukee, WI USA

Rick is my name. I live in the state of Wisconsin. The majority of my life was spent dealing with an illness. The problem of epilepsy prevented me from doing a lot of physically strenuous jobs but I kept busy with those little jobs. I began doing handyman jobs and it has helped me keep my mind occupied. I was able to drive a car for awhile, when my seizures had been controlled for awhile. After the seizures returned, I surrendered my license again and sold my van. It's a difficult thing for a man to do- sacrificing his independence and limiting his mobility can bring a halt to one's plans for their future. I have a variety of hobbies- cooking, baking, bead crafts and writing. I also enjoy being accountable with a group of men. I enjoy being honest about any type of situation with a man or group of men. It builds integrity and trustworthiness and many men don't have that in their friendships or relationships with others. I also enjoy traveling and doing missionary work trips with various churches. Now that I'm entering my sixties, I sometimes think about what I'll need to be doing to keep my health and my sanity. I try my best to eat decent home cooked meals and avoid a lot of sugary, starchy, junk foods. I learned about a couple of changes to my diet, that really helped in shedding some unnecessary pounds. Many people don't think about what they can do to take better care of their bodies, until they find out that their health is taking a turn for the worse. You might want to team up with someone who will hold you accountable and help you to take better care of the only body you have. You can reach me at the following email address: rsluss at

Sandra, 64, Kentucky

by Sandra Jobe
(Louisa, KY USA)

Country gal from the Bluegrass State of Kentucky, seeking penpals.

Some of the things I enjoy: crafts, flea markets, concerts(especially bluegrass music). I like most sports, but the Kentucky Wildcats rate #1 with me. I love going to the state parks and enjoying all the nature that God has given us.

I attend church regularly, its always been a part of my life and will continue that as long as possible. I attend the Methodist church, but enjoy going to other churches also.

I have a cat"Miss Kitty" and a dog "Shylo". They are my them so much....they are so much company to me as I live alone. I have no children of my own, so you see why pets are so important to me.

I am retired from the County Clerk's office and am enjoying staying home, doing what I want, when I want. HA! I love to travel and take short trips, but find that trips are more fun if there is someone to share them with.

Looking for penpals to keep in touch with, especially anyone from Kentucky.

My email address is: sjobe47 at, so send me messages.

God Bless!

Hi there,
I retired 10 years ago and now doing online marketing. I operate about 25 websites that promotes mainly clothing and household items.

Before the Internet and E-mail I had pen-pals in India, UK, USA and from some other countries.

I was a hobby journalist and also a short-wave enthusiast. It was my hobby to listen to exotic broadcasts and send reception reports. I have also contributed broadcast material to some International broadcasts in English.

I have a pal in UK since 1985. We started as pen pals by post office mail and now continue by E-mail. We had the fortune of meeting each other when I visited UK in 2002. Another mutual friend from Maine, USA passed away in on October 5 this year.

My another hobby is reading. Just now I am reading Wilbur Smith (When the lion feeds).
I am looking for E-mail pals from anywhere who can write in English. My E-mail ID uksharma3 at

Thank you for offering this service.

I'm interested in art, writing, relationships, social work, being in the outdoors, music, cooking, and other things.

I like people and find most of them fascinating. Although I know a lot of people, I only have a few close friends. One of the things I have found out through the years is how difficult it is to find a dear friend, one you can share, trust and love. Yet, I still enjoy meeting and talking with penpal.

I live in a historical home that is more than 100 years old and it keeps me busy keeping it.. or letting it keep me. It has a wonderful studio in it where I paint and sometimes give art lessons.

I'm easily entertained and never feel lonely. Yet, it would be great to find a male friend with similar interests to write to, talk with and, maybe, some day meet. Right now, I'm just looking for someone to correspond with through email.

Texas Country Gal

All this retirement stuff just slipped up on me. To tell you the truth, I didn't think that I would ever get OLD, but here I am! At 66, I am alone and wanting to email with a nice, Christian male, within the US.

I also didn't ever think that I would be ALONE at 66, as my plans were to travel and see the world. Now is not a good time to see the world, so have settled on seeing all the good old USA, the only thing is I am alone and want a nice Christian gentlemen that is alone, that want to do this with me. It's not fun doing things by oneself at any age. Do you agree?

I love to travel, be out of doors, camping, RV-ing, love history, animals, children, friends, family, and laughing and having full days, fun times, and somone to share all the above with. Email first, and then see what happens from there.

I live near the Fort Worth area, the weather is nice most of the year, so let's get together and see if we have enough in common to be company to each other. I would like to think that my golden years would be with someone that I could love, he could love me, for that one last time; forever.

I am a Christian and seeking a Christian who is stable, honest, and a one women man. I have good qualities and you must be the same, having the common goal for the rest of our days, together, making each other happy.

No games, please! If interested please email me at:

My name is Janet and I would love to have a pen pal. I haven't had one since I was in high school. I lost my daughter 6 years ago and my life has been in a tailspin ever since them. I need some new people to communicate with. I like fishing, cooking, movies ,gambling or just plain wholesome conversation.

My email address is janzeb at

Max, 71, Australia

by Max

I live on a large island off the coast of Australia. I share my life with my Russian Blue cat. I have lived and do live an interesting life without the restictions of a supervisor.

My interests are many and varied, but one of my consuming passions is exchanging correspondence with persons the world over. I prefer to correspond with females, as under normal circumstances I don't get female input on a day-to-day basis.

I take the trouble to make my mails as informative and interesting as possible, giving persons from another country a glimpse of life here. I don't get enthused if I receive in return two or three lines which tell me nothing of the other person and how they live. So folks, if you can't take the time to be an interesting (just day-to-day things) correspondent, then I am not for you !!!!!

But I just know there are other people out there who take a delight in their correspondence just as do I, and I look forward to hearing from you. My email is roget1860 at

Naida Dewey

by Naida. dewey
(St. James, NY)

I've been widowed twice, but am still a very active "senior" -- but one who would like to share with someone my interest in music (mostly classical -- I still sing in my church choir), current events, the Arts, -- and just any topic that might interest us. Because my sons are scientists (as were both husbands), I'm fairly computer literate. I get tired of living in a mostly female world. I love my women friends, but often miss a male viewpoint.

Stephen, 62, UK


Happily married with two kids and three grand-kids, I'm retired but stayed active and very inquisitive about the world and life. Love reading and exploring the web.

Detective and contemporary fiction/dramas are my favourite books and shows, and I love classical history for what it says about our present predicament - like nothing better than swapping views on current events also.

I've seen a fair bit of Europe and USA and a bit of Asia, always glad to swap travel stories and experiences.
A few years ago I built a small sailing dinghy and I've been learning to sail inshore but fancy doing a sea course soon. Also trying my hand at cooking - with varying degrees of success!

Be glad to hear from anyone who sees anything of interest and will always respond:

Eira (pronounced Eera), 68, North Carolina

by Eira
(Brevard, NC)

Hello! I'm originally from North India but moved to the US in 1970. I live in a small town called Brevard in North Carolina. A retired teacher, I have made a career change to dancing the Argentine Tango.

Having travelled much of the world, I am interested in communicating with men or women, preferably outside the US.

Though I have many interests, such as hiking, reading, painting, dancing, travelling, I am more interested in people whose specialization is outside my own. I find it more stimulating to be with people who stretch my mind rather than make it "redundant" with familiar knowledge.

Some of my favorite countries are Japan, Vietnam, and South Africa.

I am interested in a man or woman of character who is capable of establishing a back and forth exchange over the years. I may visit the person on my travels.

MaryJo, 68, Texas

I would like to find snail mail pen pals, male or female, who are interested in long-term friendship and might be interested in email and phone contact too.

My email address is haggisisscotsfood at Please contact me there to exchange snail mail addresses.

I am a retired teacher/librarian. I love to do genealogical research, and I did it for a living for a while. I also spent several years looking after my mother, who was 102 when she died..... so I know what the journey of a caregiver is like.

I was born and raised in Illinois. Now I live in north Texas with my two cats, both rescues with auto-immune diseases. Years ago I was on the board of directors of the local humane society, and I went on cruelty calls until I could not stand it any more. Back then I often had a house full of rescued dogs and cats, and the vet bills got very high. I am not able to afford that any more.

I have no family so I spend my time knitting and crocheting for charity. I used to sew and quilt a lot, but I have lost interest because I no longer have room. The local quilt shop has also gone out of business so there is no place to take classes.

I also love to read. Television keeps me occupied too... old movies are a favorite. So are paranormal shows like Psychic Kids and Paranormal State. Recently I got involved in and I am enjoying that, though it does not take much time.

I am a reiki master and a Healing Touch for Animals practitioner. I am very interested in energy medicine, homeopathy, earthing, and chi gong. I would have loved to have had the opportunity to take classes with Donna Eden.

Recently I was diagnosed as being mildly diabetic. That is quite an adjustment. I have had to change my diet radically because I was living on juices.

I hope everybody is having a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Betty,56, married, live in central Wyoming

by Betty
(Thermpolis, WY USA)

I live on 100+ acres ten miles outside of Thermopolis, WY with my semi-retired electrician husband of 36 years and two dogs. We also have a few chickens (if I can keep the coyotes and bobcats away from them).

Right now I'm working part-time at a restaurant. When I'm not working I read just about anything, except science fiction; knit, and watch TV.

We have five kids--3 boys and 2 girls ranging from 40 (he came with the husband) to 24. They are scattered from Florida to Hawaii thanks to the US Army.

This time of year it gets pretty cold and nasty here so I spend a lot of time inside. During the spring and summer I'm outside alot working the new flowerbeds and just wondering around. To get around during the winter I use my little Japanese truck with right-hand drive. I think it is so much fun to drive.

Carol Ocala, Florida

by Carol
(Ocala, Florida)

I had an ad in about a year ago but have since moved to a whole new town and have new and different interests.

I lived near a beach almost all my life and am now in the middle of the state with no beaches close but lovely rolling hills and beautiful trees. I would power walk on the beach every morning 8-10 miles, now I have a lovely park where you can power walk or just sit down and meditate surrounded by beautiful trees and greenery.

I now have two Olympic size pools indoor and outdoor, a gym besides the one I have in my house, golf courses, a Theater, club house and several classes (800) a year.

So you see the beach was wonderful but so is what I have now and I am very grateful. I have made friends in the 3 weeks I am here but also love to have e-mail pals so lets hear from somebody that wants to be e-mail pals.

Happy Holidays to you all.
