... you have friends that go back a long time...
... and thanks to Facebook, you can get back in touch!
My dear friend Deanna and I hadn't seen each in 37 1/2 years... until yesterday!
Needless to say there was lots of catching up to do!
And as I told my husband later about her, I said, "I think she's one of the most interesting people I know!"
From 1982 till just recently (2007?) Deanna and her husband have lived in Cairo, Egypt (where her son was born); and Nigeria; and Singapore; and Quito, Ecuador; and Calgary, Alberta, Canada. (I may be missing a country or two.) Now they're back in Texas to take care of her mom.
Back in the fall of '70 she and I met and became part of a college singing group called CATCH THE SON (yes, that was the name). We wore matching dresses, took road trips, set up equipment, and just did what singing groups did back in that day... sing and play... and, as my parents found out, didn't study on our study-for-finals-days at Baylor.
Anyway, yesterday was so fun... catching up.
We met and ate at the tea room at the Montgomery Street Antique Mall in Fort Worth. And just so you know, the food was good... but not nearly as tasty as LoneStar's tea room's food! (No brag, just fact.)
After that, I ran home, got my mother-of-the-bride dress, possible jewelry combinations, shoes, etc., and took them over to Elizabeth's house to have her help me 'put my outfit together'. (I used to use her mom for those kinds of consultations. It's amazing I can get dressed by myself these days.)
Anyway, while there little Caroline wanted to take our picture. (I let her take pictures sometimes.) She said, "Mommy and Nancy, make a funny face." This is what she took....
(Elizabeth just cracks me up!)
Then Caroline said, "Take my picture as I look like this!"
Then she posed....
Life is fun.
And yesterday was GREAT fun!!!
