Jillsy Girl hosts One Word Wednesday. Each week Jill asks someone to select a word and we have a week to come up with a story, a poem, a photo, a song that best describes that word. This week, the word is CONNECT. I was wondering the best way to blog about this word and then I remembered RE-connecting with some of my high school friends last winter. I hadn't seen most of these women since graduation
That's me, sitting on the far right, with my gray hair! I got rid of that gray shortly after!
We had a great time at a bar/restaurant in the old neighborhood and enjoyed lots of laughs!!!
One friend, Meg, who I've known since first grade brought her sister, Eleanor along. It was so good to see them again, because not much more than a week later, Eleanor passed away, in her sleep. She wasn't even sick. She was 51. I was glad to have been able to see her again. RIP Ellie!
Thanks to Facebook, I've been able to re-connect with quite a few of my former classmates and "kids" from my neighborhood (HA!! We're all mid to late 50s now!) . It's amazing. Some folks look exactly the same. Some look so different, I wouldn't know them if they knocked on my door!
I wanted to quickly add a Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps! November 10th is the 235th birthday of our beloved Marines! Semper Fi to the Marines, active and retired! Thank you for your service to our great country!
