Yesterday turned out to be a wonderful day. One of my bridesmaids that I have not seen since our wedding (that would be 45 years in August) was passing through Tampa yesterday, so The Trout and I made plans to meet her and her husband.
Judy and I have kept in touch with each other for most of those years, but we did misplace each other for a few years until I found her on Facebook about 3 years ago. After quickly catching up on families, we found a common bond again. We were roommates in college. It was a time of the Beatles and the assassination of President Kennedy. As I get older, I find it amazing that friendships survive...true friendships.
It was great meeting Judy's husband, Bob. Have seen pictures of him through the years in Christmas letters, but finally making a live connection was so very nice. A short visit, lunch and now back to corresponding through the computer. It was a good day, Judy. Thanks.
