Tuesday night Mr. Granny and I met some old friends for dinner. Even though we live in the same town, and were good friends for many years, we hadn't seen each other in more than twenty years! It's odd how people who were once close can grow so far apart, but when we retired we downsized. We moved from the large house on the hill to the small house in town. When our friends retired, they moved up to a large house on the hill from a small house in town. For some reason, our paths never again crossed until Mary Jane ran into our daughter and got our phone number from her. She called, we made the dinner date, and the old friends of the past spent a delightful three-plus hours together, remembering the old and catching up with the new.
Today I met another dear friend for lunch. We hadn't been separated for twenty years. In fact, we had never before met in person. She did, however, become a dear friend via her blog, The Modern Victory Garden. Laura is even nicer in person, and we had such a pleasant visit, I'm looking forward to many more meetings with her. Even if we did both forget about the dozen fresh eggs she brought as a gift for me. I told her to bring me two dozen the next time, to make up for it....LOL!
