Old Friends

I had a completely different thing to post, but I was catching up on my blog reading and came across Peggy's Musical Monday's choice.  It was a few songs by Simon and Garfunkle.  I love Simon and Garfunkle, always have.  I love their harmony.

Anyway, it got me thinking of what my favorite Simon and Garfunkle song was.  I truly do love so many of them, but the one I can play over and over and over again is one that wasn't a big hit.   

When I hear this song, I can picture my friend, Margie, who has been my friend since we were in first grade.  We went through 12 years of Catholic school together.  She lived around the corner from me.  She introduced me to my husband (now my ex but that's a whole 'nother story).  We were bridesmaids in each other's weddings.  

That's me on the left and Margie on the right

The song is Old Friends and I can see Margie and me, as little old ladies, sitting on a bench and laughing about the good old days.

Sweet memory. My favorite S & G songs are Cecelia and Kodachrome and I adore Art Garfunkle's solo "99 Miles from LA"

That songe "99 Miles from LA" always reminds me of my late Aunt Bette who died too young in 2006 from a lifetime of cigarette smoking. My sister, brother-in-law and I were riding to her wake and thag song came on. They had been arguing about flowers or some stupid thing that was ridiculous and then that song came on the radio and everyone calmed down. Very soothing... xoxo

Great song, although kind of ironic considering the singers. :-)

That's you still see Margie?

Joanie said...

Yes, Janie, although not nearly as often as we'd like.
