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.

I know what you mean! It sounds like a wonderful life for you! Minus the animals in the freezer part. LOL
I kill everything I plant too, so........ With nursing school and 6 kids this is my time (6 am or 10pm).
I do LOVE letter via snail mail too ( But who has the time these days)
I wish you well!!! GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!!

( 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 am looking for international snail mail pals as well. Send me a PM if you're interested.

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

snail amil pen pal
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
we can exchange information and decide who gets to write the first letter. Hope to hear from you soon!!!!
Bye for now,

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.
