Tonight I dined with five old friends, all ladies with whom I had worked for many years on a former job. I miss them all... and though we had all aged gracefully, it was so good to be in their company for a little while, to catch up on their families, and to hear about their current lives. Of all times, I forgot my camera, and forgot the camera in my phone. In a way it was almost better, because their memories live in my heart.
Thank you, Terry, Patsy, Linda, Mayling, and especially you, Mary, for being you. It's good to know tonight that I go to sleep with such good people on my side.
A beautiful chocolate pot for Calamity Acres, from dear Mary.
