Old Friends

September 18! A memorable Day indeed. 55 years ago I met a lovely girl, who 1,000 days later became my wife!! We are old friends for sure!

I am sitting on our porch doing this post. I just finished 4 oz of this fabulous Salted Caramel Drinking Chocolate by Katherine Anne confections! Awesome! Although my birthday was 10 days ago, it was nice to again celebrate. You all have a great week.

Sweet Reunion

My taxi customer wanted to stop at this farmstead to say hi. She had lived here for the five years, that she taught school in Illinois. She was greeted with a big smile and hug! Lots of nostalgia, I am sure! The treasure of friendships!

Nice to see my friends showing their skills in my home town. I am heading to PA for an Alumni banquet, so couldn’t join the carvers. Good weather this year. Last year it was quite chilly!

My wife, Alice, and our son, Dustin enjoying an early morning walk during the late Winter snowfall.

We meet a neighbor, and Alice joins her to catch up with the latest news. This is a close-up, and the next photo they qualify for a “Where’s Waldo” photo!

Another friendly neighbor is out making sure the squirrels have some food handy with this late snowfall. Do “April Showers Bring May Flowers” even if they are snow showers! It’s now April, so Spring should be right around the corner.

I picked up this young lad, his siblings and Mom, to take them home. His young cousin stepped up to the window to talk to me. He asked me what I do at home! It made my day. He was a young fella that I also had as a passenger many times with and without his parents. It made my day that he wanted to chat with the taxi driver. Maybe it helps that I give the children “smarties” when they ride with me!

When I called to schedule a visit at the assisted living facility where my 97-year-old Mother is, they said, “We were just talking about your mother!” At the table during a meal, one of the residents was crying, and my Mother got up out of her chair, went over to the lady and gave her a big hug. Wow, how sweet is that? I had a nice visit with her on the porch. She said, “I would give you a “howdy do” handshake but I think it is against the rules!” LOL
