I warn you , this is a long one for me !
I’m back from vacation and savoring this little wannabe cottage of mine.
I had so much fun, and got to visit with old friends , and make some new ones.
I traveled back in time , drove past the home I lived in from 4th grade till I got married.
Went past ( nearly everyday ) the first home my husband and I bought when we were newlyweds .
It’s so small , and except for the color of the siding , it still looks the same.
Then we went out into the countryside where the first house we built together a few years latter is , there were a few minor changes there.
There were a lot of flowers around it when we lived there, and it was white .
I traveled past the grade school , Jr. and Sr. high schools that I attended .
Visited with some of my late husbands family and talked about good old times .
My class reunion was great , I sat at a table with 6 of my good buddies from high school.
I’m sure we were all thinking the same thing , ( How did we get this old ? ) But you know ,there was no hesitation in the chatter , we talked as if we were together yesterday , giggling and laughing like high school girls .
They are all so dear to me .
I cried when we left my old home town, at my age ( not that I am that old ) you can never be sure you will see these friends again . I lost two friends this last spring .
I thank God for letting me see them and I pray that we will get together again .
The last night there we went out to eat with more friends, The couple in front in orange and in blue are my good friends Nanette and Gary , they are the friends I traveled with . behind them are Pam and Tom Paterson ,( Nan’s cousins ) who’s home the RV was parked at . I will show their home in another post . And on the outsides are Pat and John Guzman , more friends that I have known for 40 years or better.
I did get to visit a few antique places , and found just a few things for my kitchen.
I’ll leave you with one last picture.
The time machine !
Now I can’t wait to catch up with my blog friends !
