Sniff........I am going away......
We are visiting our high school friends while in Sacramento. We grew up in New Orleans and Metairie, LA. In those days (the olden ones) there was something called the Desegregation Suit that went on until just recently (for over 46 years). So the boys went to one school and the girls went to the other. Then we had the Platoon System where the each school was divided into to two schools yet they shared the buildings by going from 6 AM to 11:30 AM and the other shift from Noon to 6 PM. It flip-flopped each year so you didn't all have to go early or all late years. Which ever you went it was bad. But we made it through.
My best friends were Diane and Cindy and Susan, and Frank's best friends were Joe and Louis. Well I married Frank, Cindy married Joe and Susan married Louis. Diane married out of the circle and married Ralph. Cindy/Joe and Susan/Louis moved to California. Diane/Ralphie and Frank/me stayed home. We are still married to the same guys.
First Susan and Louis got divorced, then we heard that Cindy and Joe got divorced. Then we heard that Susan and Joe got married, And later we heard that Cindy and Louis got married.
So now Frank and I are visiting California and will have dinner with ALL of them ....... yes.........at the same time! They are all good friends still. While I think that odd ( I would be the one involved in the cat fight of her life with the other woman) they do very nicely with it. And it will be interesting to see our high school buddies from 39 years ago!
I can't wait!
glen: I am sure to have stories to tell when we get back. So if you miss me, that is why!
