This Week...A Chance to Catch Up With Old Friends

We’ve had beautiful warm weather for January which would be a good thing for walking except Larry was fighting a cold. We did manage to go out a few days though.

I can't put this delicately - everyone goes to their high school reunion wanting to see who they 'beat’. Megyn Price



Poor Larry “recovered” enough to go to a reunion of sorts with me. I know he would rather have been sick at home but I wanted him to meet my friends.

Whoever neglects old friends for the sake of new deserves what he gets if he loses both. Aesop

 

I’d not seen most of these people for maybe 45 years. I’d like to say that they were friends from elementary school but no...more like college.

Say what you want about aging, it's still the only way to have old friends.   Robert Brault

 

It’s interesting when you meet up with a friend you knew when you were younger...a lot younger. In my eyes, I still saw the high school and college friends I’d gone to parties with. 

I had the same feeling several years ago when my friends from as far back as my elementary school carpool met for lunch. I looked around the table and still saw the little kids that I rode to school with every day.

Look hard and you can see Larry in the back. You can see how much he “loves” these things. 



Life is fun, it’s an adventure, and it goes by so quickly. Savor every single moment. 

 

Have a memorable weekend.

Hi Kathy... having attended my 40th and 45th high school reunions, I get it... especially as some of my classmates were also in elementary school with me. Sadly I missed my 50th reunion four years ago. When I attended my 40th sorority reunion I was again amazed at how much people are still the same despite the passage of years, as I was at my high school reunions.

Next week we have two very old friends of many decades coming to visit for a couple of days... one from Palm Springs and one from Dubai. Chris and I are both looking forward to seeing them.

Good morning Kathy. I haven't got any friends that old (in terms of knowing them). I think you are lucky.

How wonderful that you enjoyed your "old" friends. I can understand Larry's reluctance.  A

It looks like a happy bunch and I hope that Larry will fully recover soon!  The memories that we have of others is what shapes how we think about them and remember them when we don't get to see them very often.

Good morning Kathy Streib - It is great that you can gather so many old friends.  I grew up outside of Philadelphia and don't think I would know too many now.

Hahaha, the photo of Larry says it all. I think it's wonderful that you attended though, I'm guessing it was a worthwhile and fun gathering.

What a great looking group Kathy, thank you for sharing the event! Enjoyed the quotes as well - this one says so much and is resonating with me at this time...Whoever neglects old friends for the sake of new deserves what he gets if he loses both. Aesop

Wayne Martin you're right. I don't see 70 year old people, I see young college kids. 

Barbara Todaro you're lucky to have your friends near you. We're all so spread out.

Hi Donald Urschalitz totally enjoying it. 

Kat Palmiotti it's really interesting, don't you think?

Michael Jacobs trust me, I'd have been happy to leave him at home but this is payback (LOL) for all of the reunions of his I've been to.

Nina Hollander Once many of us graduated from college it was hard to get together. 

Thank you Scott Godzyk I think it's the same stuff that's been going around but he does feel better, thank you.

Hi Sheila Anderson it's a blessing!!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel it's hard because the only ones he knew were my cousin and her husband and a friend who'd visited us in VA. 

Brian England Larry is feeling better thank you! There are still some friends I have to meet for lunch or coffee but haven't gotten around to it.

Grant Schneider I don't have any really close friends from my childhood or college. It's hard when everyone moves away. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD You know, the older you get, the more you realize if not now, when?  I had a friend in from CA who was there and I felt that if I did not go, I might never see him again.

Sharon Lee I get it. I've been to several of Larry's reunions so this my turn. LOL

Myrl Jeffcoat Hope that you go!!! I'm not too far behind you. 

Anna Banana Kruchten Broker/Owner, CRB, CRS he was a sport and it really meant a lot to have my friends meet him.

Trust me George Souto you both would have been off somewhere. Actually he was fine and we were ready to leave when they had to have the group photo...which takes forever. 

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! isn't that a great quote to remember. We have to treasure all of our friends.

Hi Kathy:

Great photos, especially the group one, and some wonderful quotes. It must have been a blast, although maybe not for Larry!
