A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

It's a very rainy day here in western Washington but it didn't stop our lunch get together at Applebee's.   It seemed like we'd just seen Joni a couple weeks ago and I know it's been several years.  The three of us had such a good time reminiscing the good old days.  Like I've mentioned before, Joni, Barbara and I went to the same grade school and high school and lived within bike riding distance of each other all those years.  After our good lunch (I had the Santa Fe Chicken salad and it was very good) we drove just a couple miles away to visit Barbara's mom & sister. There we continued remembering the good old days and the crazy things we did.  Barbara's mom was especially pleased to have us come visit.  She was like my second mom.....and after high school when I had a disagreement with my folks I actually moved in with them for about a month until I got my job at the phone company and moved into an apartment at the other end of town.   Anyway...it was a great day and when Joni retires later this year there will be more like it.  We even talked about a sleep over, perhaps here at my place in the new future.  A time to bring out the old pictures and year books...that will be fun.

Hope you all had a good Monday !   Linda

I knew you'd beat me with an entry.  But you hit the nail right on the head.  I had such a good time and felt like we could have went on for hours.  It was great to see Barb's Mom and sister too.  The drive home was much easier than the one there.  Your picture turned out much better than mine, but I will post later.  Have a good night.  Joni

It's nice to spend good times with old friends. Rainy? We could used some moisture here in Texas.  Take care, Barb

It really is fun to see the sights along memory lane every once in a while.  Always much more fun when you share the trip with others.
