Pen pals is a great I'd love a few. I did try to do something similar in the old app using emails but not much eventuatedπŸ˜”. But would be very happy to use snail mail. I love getting letters and no one writes anymore πŸ˜ŠπŸŒΌπŸ€—

HWood and Ouch -
We did this for mailing Christmas Cards and it worked out great. If you want your addresses added to the pen pal list just send them to me in a private message. :) I also love getting mail that isn't junk mail or bills. :)

Sezzy -
I bet you would make an awesome pen pal. The letters don't have to be long, drawn out ones. You are amazing with finding the right words to share here. :)

((( hugs )))

MKnight -
I wrote you a long response last night but it's not here. (frown).

I did get your letter. I thought I had messaged you after I got it. :/ I loved hearing from you and the little "gifts" were perfect! I wasn't able to write back other than to.send a card due to my being sick. Am out of town now but hoping to get some notebook paper this week so I can finish your letter.

As for having more than one pen pal. What I will do is put all addresses together like I did for the Christmas card thing. So everyone who signs up will get a complete list of all addresses. :)

My sisterskeeper and bikerswife

Could you both please send me a private message that has your name and address on it? You can do that by clicking on my name. Under my profile picture there's an option to send a private message. Just click on that and write out your message. :)

Jan 06, 2017 5:43 AM

Yippieeee I can't wait for the mail to arrive! I'll look like a wobbly girl skipping up the driveway, letter in hand πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Jan 06, 2017 9:19 AM

Lol ouchithurts that's me as well but I'd probably fall over!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Jan 06, 2017 1:12 PM

Jan 06, 2017 1:14 PM

Options are awesome. Will chat with you on the site here. Look forward to it.

Jan 06, 2017 3:22 PM

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Sezzy yes I probably got a bit excited there! It'd be more like granny with walking stick in hand tottering along the driveway waving her letter around πŸ˜‚πŸŒΌπŸ€—

Jan 06, 2017 9:30 PM

Lol....I'd have to get to my letter box before my daughter as she's just as excitable as me when post comes that's not a bill or junk mail...can you imagine me trying to race my 10 year old to the letter box? Me trying to use my size to block her from passing me while trying to stay on my feet waddling from side to side trying to stay on my feet while my daughter tries to go round me without knocking me over....πŸ˜‚πŸ˜¨πŸ˜‚

Jan 07, 2017 9:51 AM

Lol Sezzy

I can picture that! :)

I have 10 names so far. Am going to be out sightseeing with my son today but either tonight or tomorrow I will get the list of addresses together and sent to each person who private messaged me their address.

If you haven't sent your info yet or are just seeing this I am putting together a list of people who want to be Penpals (via snailmail)

To be included you simply need to send me a private message with your name and mailing address.

To send a private message simply click on my name. You will see my profile picture and underneath that is the option to send a private message. Just click on that to open the private message page.

If that doesn't work for you it may be that you are using an older version of this app. I think the private message is only for the pain companion app so you may need to download that app as well. (someone correct me if I am wrong please. )

I find that I often have the same trouble. Thankfully I have a printer so I can type up my letters on days when writing is hard to do.

Maybe once I get this situated you and I could put together a list for e-mail Penpals? If that's something you would be interested in. Or, if you can type up letters to mail we would love to add you to the pen pal list. :)

Jan 08, 2017 2:56 PM

Mimikay you're correct with private message is only available in Pain Companion but anyone using Catch My Pain can download the Pain Companion app and use the already a member login and use the same details that you use for Catch My Pain.

I hope you have a fantastic day sightseeing with your son, make sure your wrapped up warm and take things easy xx

Thank you Sezzy. :)

We are in Billings right now. Did some shopping and now going out to eat. Next week we are going back up in the mountains to get some pictures. :) should be fun. Today I got myself some gloves, a hat and some hiking boots that should work here and back home in the warmer weather as well. .

Having to use my cane today. My right knee keeps giving out on me. :( and that's not even the one I will have operated on when I get home. Also really nauseated. Not sure whats up with that but if I was a betting person I would say a kidney infection once more.
