I love penpals--especially those around my own age. BUT...sometimes I am overwhelmed at the thought of writing a long letter! So, for this swap you will have 1 partner and you will send 1 postcard per week for 4 weeks to that partner. Four weeks should give you a good idea about whether you want to start pen-palling.

Just send a newsy postcard each week and give your receiving partner a chance to get to know a little bit about you and your life. Maybe you will end up with a long-term penpal.

You can send any time during each week. Weeks are as follows:

Week 1: 1/14 - 1/19 (include your name/address on this postcard)

Week 2: 1/21 - 1/26

Week 3: 1/28 - 2/2

Week 4: 2/4 - 2/9

It's up to you whether you respond to YOUR sending partner each week, or at all, but it's a lot of fun to get a mini-correspondence going.--even if you just shoot off a postcard or a note card.

Please post below after you send EACH WEEK to give your partner an idea about when they will receive their postcards.

I presume we don't mark "sent" until we've sent all four.

Grammycj 01/18/2013 #

First of the 4 cards sent yesterday. To Barbara.

basykes 01/19/2013 #

I sent the week #2 card to Vickyyen early, since there is no mail service on Monday.

I sent my 1st card to Carmen yesterday. Got it out before the mail was picked up from the box in front of PO.

PeggyO 01/21/2013 #

I sent my first two cards to Bev Sykes ( basykes )--I didn't do the first one until Friday and then realized post office would be closed until Tuesday for MLK Day, so you will probably get the first two cards on the same day! I have the other two marked on my calendar/planner so should get them out early for the remaining two weeks!

mejulia 01/22/2013 #

My last post was wrong, I didn't send a card to Alicemayspring, sent third card to Barbara (kssunlover) on Thursday. This is my first time to do one of these, I'm getting all confused. Sorry about that.

kssunlover1947 02/ 2/2013 #

Sent 3rd card to Carmen @Karmi53 this evening. I have received the second card from @Grammycj Just been busy this week so I don't remember exactly which day it arrived.

Grammycj 02/ 4/2013 #

Third card from Alicemayspring arrived today.

PeggyO 02/ 5/2013 #

Sent two extra postcards to be sure I didn't miss any for Bev Skyes since I''ve been having so many Dr appointments and out-patient

PeggyO 02/ 5/2013 #

I hit enter accidentally, I guess, as I had not finished my message--I've been in so many Dr offices and had so many out-patient treatments in the past month that I'm not sure I got all four send to her on time. So I'm sending these two extras just to be certain!

alicemayspring 02/ 9/2013 #

Received my third card from Vickyen today

kssunlover1947 02/10/2013 #
