Mini-Vacation

Tomorrow and Sunday I'm going on a mini-vacation at my friend's house.  I'll revisit some of the old abandoned farmhouses in between here and there. 

It may be hot, but I'll be refreshed when I step onto her shaded deck and enjoy the south vista where her husband takes off and lands his ultra light.

We'll sip an iced drink beside her Koi pond and take a walk down memory lane--over 45 years of memories since we met at business school in Salina, Kansas.  Our empty nests have been a big plus for us, because now we can meet more often than only once or twice a year!

"There are 'friends' who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother."
Proverbs 18:24

A true friend is one who thinks you're a good egg
even though you're slightly cracked.

I hope you have a grand time with your friend. Friends are definately a blessing.Don't forget to take your camera :) I (love) the old house photo..It is surprising when you revisit them how quickly you can see them returning to nature.
