Hello my name is Josh Cowan, my friends call me frogman because my favorite animal is the frog. I am a 31 year old male. I was born in New York State on 01-03-1980. My favorite color is green and my favorite food is seafood. I love to drink all kinds of pop but one of my favorite types of soda pop is root beer. I love humor and love to laugh so that means my favorite singer is Wierd Al Yankovic.

How did you start penpalling? When was that? And why did you decide to start Penpalling?
I graduated high school in 2000 and college in 2003 and started penpaling around 2004/2005. I was surfing the web one day and came across a website on penpaling and after reading I became interested and found my first penpal through an online penpal site.
There aren’t many things dislike about penpaling/correspondence but when I receive letters from prison inmates and people from Africa who ask for money.
How do your friends react when they discover you are into Penpalling? Are they also into it or they give you the “strange” faces?
My friends think it is really awesome. I even was able to get one of my ex girlfriends who still is a really good friends of mine into penpaling, We even share some of the same penpals.
Do you still stay in touch with your first penpal? Tell us about your first penpal even if you have lost touch with them. We might be able to help you locate him/her.
I have lost contact with my very first penpal named Melissa Streu. She really loved stickers and always sent me some funky stickers.
How many Penpals do you have? Where are they from?
I have lots of penpals and they are from all over the world.
Are you searching for new Penpals? If yes, please give us some contact information that we can publish in the magazine so that people can write to you back.
