A rare occasion

It is not normal for us to have folks living close that we know, especially in the winter. This winter we have been close to Don & Evelyn, we are parked beside them now. As I type I can see their motor home.

A couple days ago our good friends the Tuckers came down and rented a unit in the park for a couple days. We were  together a lot with a lot of chatter going on. All three girls, Evelyn, Rose and Sherry were in the same graduating class back in 1956.  They always get the Class Annuals out and discuss the fates of other class mates or their families.  All three girls are life long residents of Belmont.

Anyway we have been busy for a day or so while the Tuckers are down for a rare visit.

I have very few life long friends, but what I do have, I treasure. Being deaf hurts a lot, but still you want to be around friends.

I will return after this brief encounter from the past.

Thanks for coming by the Blog.  Remember our friends Lucy & Grover (Jeans hubby), the most recent ‘casualties of the war on age’ here on the net.

PS:

I Just finished ‘Cross Country’ by James Patterson. I always enjoy James’ work.

I had a cousin (RIP) who had one of these 1946 Ford Convertibles.

(Old cars just make me feel good, this morning Louis was reminding me of curb feelers and necker knobs)

Y'll have fun. I am visiting my best friend from high school every day while she is having therapy here in our town.

Enjoy your visit with your friends! Good ones are hard to find. Jean and Grover are in my prayers.

Friends are a rare commodity in this world, especially those you've had a lifetime. ENJOY visiting. Take care.

As we get older our friends are
few. Most of my long time friends
have passed. I am at that age and I do cheerish and appreciate
my friends.

Glad you got to see Rosie and Vondale very sweet people.

It has started to rain we need it for our future gardens. HAHAHA
I have planted 3 grapes tomatoe.

Amazing how one can be apart from true friends, and when you get together, it is like no time has passed at all.

Glad you were able to have some friends there. And that you had a good time. Have you always been deaf? we do need to treasure our friends. Sandie

«Louis'» maternal grandparents had a '46 or '47 Ford "tudor" as they called their 2 door sedan models. It was a green that probably best could be described as Gan Green...
