|Hi, I live in Southern Oregon. I am a retired elem teacher. I have a chronic illness that keeps me home most of the time and I enjoy chatting with people of all ages via email. I am not interested in "finding a man", just having friends to talk with. I get quite lonely, so I love to have penpals. I was born and raised in Santa Barbara CA until I was 20. Then I went to Corvallis Oregon, for college at Oregon State University. I married a guy from Grants Pass Or and I'm still here ! We divorced in 1974. I have 2 grown children and 4 precious grand children (ages 5 and under) who live 23 miles south of me. I love to flower garden and sew and I love pets. I have 2 shihtzu doggies and 2 cats. I don't travel or do sports because of my illness. I love children, I teach Sunday school and am a full on Jesus LOver. I love politics. My main loves in life are children, Jesus, flowers and sewing. But I am curious about almost everything :) If I was well, I would travel the USA and see all the states. We used to camp and fish a lot when I was a kid. Guess that gives you some idea of who I am :) I am 61.|
