Good Food and Good Friends….

Back in the day (of high school) in my senior year at the little private school I attended a “new girl” arrived.      Sara was a little shy at first but once you got to know her, you knew she was a “keeper” for a friend.    Not one to gossip but always a good listener.     After graduation, Sara and I stayed in touch over the years.    We even attended two class reunions together.      And as life got in the way, so did the times we talked on the phone or met up for a quick lunch.      I had not seen or talked with Sara for about 5 years when I recently got an e-mail from her.     We decided that our schedules would “allow” us to meet today for lunch and an afternoon of catching up.


Here we are after eating lunch today at Applebees (Sara’s on the left and I’m on the right).       

We had a  great time trying to catch up in such a short time.     We are both grandmother’s(!) and even have granddaughters named Taylor!    We have vowed not to wait another 5 years to get together.     We also are going to see if there is any interest in have a class reunion next summer (our 40th!!!!)…I can’t believe I told ya’ll that!   So Sara, if you’re reading this, I had a great time today and I can’t wait for our next visit!

On a side note, I wanted to thank all of ya’ll that commented on my computer issues.     My computer guy just left and I think he is now convinced (as I am) that Internet Explorer is not the right browser to blog successfully.     I am now using Firefox (thanks everyone for putting me on to another browser) and so far (finger’s crossed) it’s working like a dream.    I hope to be back to my usual blogging schedule in the next few days.

It's so good to see you posting, Judy!

I'm glad you two girls got together for lunch. I am in contact with some of my old school friends, daily. We worry, when one of us doesn't e-mail, each day! In a couple of years, we will be having our 50th reunion...oh my....

It is so neat to meet up again with old friends. It's a shame all to often, we get too busy to keep in touch. I am so guilty of this, but what a pleasure it is to make the time. Glad you had a great lunch. Hugs, Marty

That is so cool that you and Sara reconnected. I haven't seen any of my high school friends since our 10th class reunion many moons ago. Tried to stay connected with my best friend but she opted not to stay in touch with anyone when she went through her second divorce. Oh well.

Hey, my 30th is July 11th in Montgomery. I think it is a great idea to have a 40th of LA grads. And I personally think youhave held up extremely well!

Isn't it so much to reconnect with old friends? I've been doing a lot of that lately! You look so Southern and beautiful. I love your hair and your necklace!
