This swap is really for my mother, who is not a swap-bot member, but would like to have another pen-pal. The one she has (a swap-bot member) is so much fun, that she is inspired to get more!

If you ARE over 60 and want a pen-pal, this swap is for you! And...!!!

If you have a loved one that is over 60 and would like a pen-pal, this swap is for them! Sign up, and then pm them the name and address of your loved one. Make sure you ask them first if they would be interested in writing. I don't want anyone to be disappointed.

This swap is not meant to exclude anyone--I just know that sometimes when one is matched with a pen-pal of a different age group, it is sometimes hard for one or both sides to relate. If you are younger and would like to be included, maybe you could leave a comment and people could write to you, aside from this swap! :)

Here's hoping to match a few loved ones to some great pen-pals!

You know what I think will be fun about this is the fact that everyone that joins can message each other and therefore have potentially more pen-pals! :)

What about those of us not 60 but enjoy having older penpals? :)

Well, I totally will encourage you to write to my mom, and why don't you look at the participants..I am sure they would love to write to you! (I'd write to you, too, but I'm not over 60.) :) I only wanted to make sure that people in the same age group found each other.

Well if anyone is participating in this swap would like to write me please pm me :) I feel like I have more in common with older people than my generation (80's kid here)

I am new to this group and at the risk of sounding unintelligent I would like to know what a "pm" message is. Thank you. I will definitely participate as soon as I understand where I leave a message. :-)

I left you a message on your profile about this, but just in case you're looking here, too.. :) Say you wanted to leave a message for zefaniya. You would click on her name, which will take you to her page, and then by her name there would be a box called "send message"---click on that, and type away. Then press send! (Just don't accidentally hit return, or it will send an empty message. I think we've all done it! hahah!) Thanks for your comment! I hope you join this swap!

Hi, I'm definitely over 60 and would enjoy receiving a letter in the mail box instead of the many, many, many health ads!

I am retired and a young 76. I love to travel, especially cruises. I also enjoy entertaining and do that as part of karaoke. I would enjoy meeting people who would like to email, swap, chat or communicate in any way.
