Kate, Amy, Sally, Melinda and I, friends since childhood, just had our yearly reunion. Per my request, our home was the venue. And this time, after putting it to a vote, my three boys were included. I prophesied that should David be present, lattes, black bean steaks and lobsters; all outside of my skill set, might be on the menu. This may have swayed the decision making process. To wit:
RE: Should they stay or should they go:
I love lattes, meat, boys…alcohol…I’m game for everything! Amy
They had me at lattes. Sally
Such fun, funny friends. And no less so in person. It would seem we have a jollier respite from reality each successive time we assemble. The addition of David and Pete (you too, Buddy) proved a fine one. Just imagine the merriment we shall make in our elder years!
The realization that I selected my pals so well at a tender age does much for my retroactive self esteem. Such a fine judge of character! Or, I got very, very, lucky. No doubt a bit of each. I love you guys!
we couldn’t go through all this without our friends…and old friends are the best (“you can’t make new old friends”)..
Did you read my blog (“Dancing through Cancer”) on “A Little Help from my Friends?” where I discuss the value of friendship at length…you’ll like it.
Hey Laurie–I will check out your blog. Friends are great, old and new. I like em all.
Best weekend yet. Poker night, community weeding, bug club, legal ethics. Just doesn’t get better. And I was right – the lattes were excellent.
Sally, guess we’ll just have to do it again next year. Or maybe semi annually. Or every quarter? Move to the same cul de sac?
