It's Friday!

Ben and I have been out running around most of the day. Went to WalMart twice, to the grocery store and had lunch at Carl's Jr.
When I got home, I check the "snail mail" and found a note from an old school friend of mine. We were BFFs back in Jr. High and High School, but lost contact with each other after graduation. I have not seen her in probably 40 years. Anyway, she was doing some house cleaning and found an old letter that I had sent to her on July 12, 1967 while I was on vacation with my family visiting my Aunt in Wichita, KS way back then. I was only 17 years old then. She said she doesn't know why she kept the letter, but thought it was funny when she found it and wanted to share it with me, so mailed it to me.
It was so funny reading something I wrote as a teenager back in our "hippy" days. I mentioned some other school friends in the letter that I have not thought about in years.
Nothing like a trip back in time.
It is not even 2:30 PM here in SoCal and it is getting very dark outside. We are having something we do NOT usually get here in the summertime.....humidity. The sky is covered with thunderclouds and it is very "sticky" outside. Not used to this.


  1. I think that is great that she kept that letter all these years and then sent it back. I still keep up with some friends from long ago.

  2. I bet that was fun to get and read...ha. Have a great weekend, Sheila
    P.S. I lived in Wichita, KS once upon a time...

  3. Hi Kay, Hope you can re-establish a relationship with your friend. Does she have email or a blog??? That would be so neat!!!!!

    Humidity in Southern California???? Woooo--that is rare. AND--we haven't had much this week (which is nice for us, especially in August)..

    Have a great weekend.

  4. Yes Betsy, she does have email. I used to email her years ago, but she moves around a lot and is not always where she can get online. Awhile back, I discovered that her old email address was closed. She sent her new one to me in the snail mail.



I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
