Me And My Good Old Buddy

Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane

Come for a walk with me down Memory Lane!
And if you have a "Memory Lane" post, head on over to Scottsville to join in on the fun!

I want to take part in Erica's A Walk Down Memory Lane tonight. So I have a picture of me and a very dear friend of mine since tenth grade.

She introduced herself to me while we were in P.E. class one morning during that first week of tenth grade and we've been friends ever since. That would be thirty-six years ago. Oh my goodness!

My mom still has friends from high school which would be sixty-six years ago. We graduated from the same high school thirty years apart. Cool huh? And the school is still there. It is a historical building, but was renovated recently and it is still a functioning high school. I Digress. This is a walk down memory lane after all, and I go on some long walks at times.

This picture was taken this past May when Tami and I joined her SIL's church for a retreat. We had never spent time like that together. It was so fun!

She got married and had kids right away. I made Lot's of mistakes and finally married my current husband and didn't have kids until I was in my late thirties. It was difficult to get together. Her kids are all grown now and mine are independent and hubby can handle them for extended weekends easily enough. So I went and it was a great experience.

There is my Walk Down Memory Lane. I hope you enjoyed it. I did! :0)
