My classmate I had not seen for 53 years came by to see me yesterday. I wish I had a nickel for all the times I have thought of her. My children have heard stories about her and we cook a dish that her mother made for us when we were kids. I just found her last week...she lives seven blocks from me. Darn...all those years gone. We will never get them back. Oh, by the way she is still beautiful and a friend. At least I have that!
I showed up for my hair appointment exactly one day late. Now, I would like to tell you that this was a new thing but it isn't. I paid my hairdresser for a hair cut I did not get and resolved to cut my hair myself until I am in my dotage and someone else is responsible for remembering my appointments. I wish I had a nickel for every time I forgot to show up someplace...once the time has passed it is gone and must be forgotten.
So, hows your day going?
I wish I had a nickel for every experience I put off, finally have, and find it love it. My life is too risk-adverse for my own good.ReplyDelete
My time with you and your husband last week is a perfect example. I have never taken a vacation just to meet new people who I might like. After the amazing time my wife and I had with you and Earl I could kick myself for past chances to do something similar but I never took the steps to make it happen.
Believe me, I have learned my lesson.
Yes, Bob, I know what you mean. We will live on our "staycation" with you and your lovely wife for the rest of our summer. Regret is not a happy companion but it does teach us a lesson or two.ReplyDelete
My friend Sharon is a remarkable woman. I will write more about her soon.
