Another weekend here? Count me right on in. Full loon moon makes it’s debut tonight at 11:36 EST, and I’ll have to say it’s been a strange week. Just strange.
Tonight my guy and I get to have dinner with my bff and her hubby. It’s gonna be a great reunion, since we all four went to high school together and they haven’t seen my guy in 24 years. It’s funny how so much time just ticks by and leaves us with, well, the memories. It’s great to be able to reconnect again. I’m certain we won’t lack for conversation, and we’re all really looking forward to it.
I can so remember back to that time in my life. My bff Angie was into being a flag girl, while I was into ROTC, rifles and auto mechanics. Sounds like we were worlds apart, but it was only the extracurriculars which temporarily divided us while in school. When not in school we were inseparable. Sometimes we’d hide outside until our mothers went to work, then go back home and sleep all day. We’d wake up refreshed – then after over-nuking a couple of hotdogs in the microwave and gulping down a 2-liter of coke, be ready to party the night away. The belly-laughter was always plentiful, just as it still is today. Best friends always end up with their own lives, but a true one never fades from your life.
The above picture was taken in Myrtle Beach, SC in 1986, our graduating year. It rained the entire time we were there which is why we’re donning the Bogart hats. Do they even make photo booths anymore??
A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked.
Awwwa, I’m in tears over here. Love you bunches and wish we could be stuck together like glue again. So different yet so connected. Only God can put two people like us together. Much LOVE 🙂

Well we are, sista – in heart and soul. You know I’m only a call or text away, and sending much love back to ya!! Incidentally, I received an email back from my Mom that day that said, “I didn’t know y’all did that…” (skipping school to sleep) hahahaha!!

LOL…..I always loved wearing those hats. In fact, I bought myself a new one at Hot Topic last week!!!
I do remember you in that ROTC uniform and Angie in that flag girl uniform. Us band folks, we never wore the same thing two years in a row. 🙂
