I received this a while ago and saved it:
Friends are like balloons;
Once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong.. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm going to tie you to my heart so I never lose you.
Now that is a little hokey for a man, so I will say that is Sherry speaking. Since she is actually my Better half, it will be okay.
I have met some great internet friends, many read this blog. Thanks for being around.
(You had better listen)
I have friends who write above my eighth grade vocabulary, but I don’t mind, sometimes I look up the words to find out what they mean. Then I forget them because that is the nature of us old folk.
(3 is cool)
Shirl asks if I can believe she is 7x, I tell her I can’t even believe I am 74. Shoot I can remember Orwells 1985 (wasn’t it?) and thought, wow that is a long way off, I will never see that.
But physical friends? I don’t have many. In reality my male friends I can count on one hand. But I sure do not want to lose them, I might need a loan one day.
I read once, a friend would give good council and say, I will go with you to the police station to report this. A real friend would help you bury the body. LOL I have two of those (+me makes three).
(I think we can catch dem birds)
I started to say maybe I’m feeling down, but I am not, I am very happy. My daddy said, when it comes down to the end, where the rubber meets the road, if you have ONE good friend, you are better than most.
So thanks friends, Life is great..
To actually be loved, is one of the greatest pleasures a human can know or enjoy.
Must have been Sunday when this picture was made. For many years gas stations closed on Sunday.
Ah, the days of the Continental Kit. I think this is a ‘55 Merc.
