About Me

I'm a teacher that splits my time between large city and small town country living. I enjoy having the best of both worlds. I've been an avid letter writer with pen pals for more than 40 years. I enjoy exchanging long, conversational style letters with questions and dialogue and becoming real friends. A long letter to me is about 8+ pages handwritten or 4 pages typed. I also enjoy exchanging cards for the holidays and birthdays. In the past, I've swapped postcards and participated in traveling notebook/journal projects. Unwritten map postcards are my favorite type to collect.

I like nature photography and traveling the backroads to small towns to see something new, reading and discussing books, movies, music, animals (dogs, cows/sheep/roosters, foxes, wolves, hawks, owls), pets (2 rescue dogs I adore and spoil) history, science, culture, gardening, mysteries, ghost stories and the unexplained, abandoned places, historical places, natural health, cooking, crafting, traveling, walking in the woods, spending time in deserts and the ocean, storms, relaxation, spas, discussing current events and much more.

Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely Valentine card and the note papers and hearts! I hope you have been safe and warm through this weather. What's up with this? I have lived here all my life and I have never seen snow and ice twice in one year. First time for everything I guess. Hugs, Diane

Comment: Hi Suzy, thanks for the neat card and Alamo stationery. I love regional specific things like that! I agree, it's hard to find pen pals who want to write long quality letters anymore. Have a lovely holiday and may 2018 bring you lots of great letters/envies to your mailbox!

Comment: Thank you for the cowboy boot card and Alamo post card. I visited the Alamo when my husband was in the military in the early 1980's. I loved living in San Antonio for a few weeks.

Dropping in to say Hi! I love looking through peoples profiles, as I am still trying to figure out what to say in mine. Looks like we both have a love for animals and I also love ghost/unexplained stories. Mom, sister and I have gone on ghost tours in towns we have visited and I have a collection of "local" ghost stories for different towns in California/Nevada

Greetings from Singapore!

My name is Jan and I am your partner for the "easy comment" swap! I hope you are doing great! I feel like I am writing to you in your "future" here cause well its Monday and I am experiencing the sunny sun shining brightly in the middle of the afternoon here! Haha!

Firstly... WOW! You actually write 6 - 7 pages to your penpal? That is pretty nice! I mean in a "modern" day like this, no one bothers to hand-write letters anymore... let alone greeting cards and even Postcards! I actually find it hard to find touristy PCs from my country but when I do, I'll buy a lot! I love that we can actually interact with someone who has the same interest as us from all around the worrrrld! That is interesting to me! And I am sure for you too! Do you happen to have a penpal from Singapore though? Or somewhere in Asia? Also, if I can ask you... do you meet up with your penpals in person? Just thought I'd ask, cause it seems intriguing.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Regards, Jan (: (from your "future").

OOPS! Sorry about that last one! I didn't realize how big it would turn out. (I'm still new to this.) Let me try that again.

alexismargo on Mar 19, 2015:

Hi! I really like that you put time and effort into your letters- 8 pages is pretty long. I write really tiny so that would take me forever! You must have some lucky pen pals :)
