This summer has been filled with visits to and from friends, both old and new (have I mentioned I love that about retirement!)  Last weekend, Mr. A. and I hopped into the car and drove through monsoon rain to reunite with friends from our "college days."  We've been talking about a reunion for...hang on here folks...over 42 years!  So, when Mr. A received his All-Greek Reunion postcard last Christmas, I decided it was now or never.  I grabbed the bull by the horns, emailed Jane, Mary and Rosa, made Hotel Reservations and eagerly awaited our long talked about reunion.  We were not disappointed!   It was as if we hadn't missed a beat since our conversations ended so many years ago.  We laughed till we cried...and then laughed some more.  The fifth member of our group, Susie, had passed away in 2004, yet she was so very much a part of each story told that we felt she was with us in spirit.

We all did our best to bring everyone up to date on our lives since we'd parted and made a pact, henceforth, to meet at least once a year.  So, stay tuned!
