My word of the day......

My word of the day is "friends".

I just returned to my hotel room after visiting with nine of them from

three generations. The oldest ones and I go back to the 70's.

Outside with pizza and beer, listening to the old songs and sharing

old stories. Catching up and imagining the future.

I left my best one this morning at home. She was expecting her aunt,

her cousin and her sister in law in for a Sea Of Estrogen Weekend.

I thought it might be a good time to vanish.

My first stop was to meet Scot for breakfast. Eggs and encouragement

along with a side of grits and grins. Food for the body, mind and soul.

Afterwards, I was northeast bound for my hometown of

Newport News, Virginia. But before I got to my final destination there

would be a stop in the little town of Franklin, Va. Through Facebook,

I had reconnected with a guy I hadn't seen in a while.

"A while" in this case meaning since March of 1963.

I hadn't seen Tim in over 51 years.

We filled in the giant blank as best we could in an hour and a half.

Funny the stuff you remember.

Funny the stuff you forget.

"Friends".  Good word.
