    Default Snail mail pen pals

    Computers are great but I miss the snail mail letter days of old.

    I live in southern Victoria, Australia. I live on a couple of acres outside a small town. I have three boys and my husband is the local policeman. I grow all my own veges and rear animals for the freezer. My hobbies are sewing, embroidery, designing clothing, extreme gardening, painting, and flying.

    Hi Megsy! I would love to get snail mail letters too! I think we are losing a lot of our written history. If you want to correspond PM me!

    ( I'd love to know what extreme gardening involves!)

    Once a year I take a chainsaw to the garden! I have about a quarter of an acre of garden, mostly native trees and shrubs. Fortunetely the sheep did an ok job of cutting it back this year so I didn't have much to do.

    I must admit to being a lazy letter writer so am a big fan of emails. I don't have to collate my thoughts into a single document and can just send my semicoherent ramblings to people as they come to me. LOL

    Having said that I am happy to chat with anyone who like it. I always like to meet new people.

    regards to all

    Talking snail amil pen pal

    Hi Megsy!!
    I would love to be snail mail pen pals. I love getting something other than bills in the box.....
    I also like to garden...but I must admit....I'm not quite sure what extreme gardening is....you will have to fill me in on that one.
    I am from Texas.....and have always thought that us Texans and you Aussies are much alike in many ways. Please email me at
    angelawritesu@yahoo
    we can exchange information and decide who gets to write the first letter. Hope to hear from you soon!!!!
    Bye for now,
    Angela

    So tell me about extreme gardening. I am interested. This time last year my husband, two girls and I were in Australia. What a wonderful place. We lived in Japan at the time.

    I recently relocated to Heidelberg, Germany. Here there are community gardens) next to our home. I love the urban garden plots. I am green with envy since my family and I will not be able to have a garden until my husband retires and we can move out of town.

    We are counting the months. I would love to correspond with you via snail mail if you already don' t have too many letters to write. Looks like many of us like your idea. I get nothing but bills, junk mail and seasonal commercial cards.
