(M, hope this title is positive enough for you!)
Today I saw my dear friend Barbara, who is on an East Coast visit...she lives in Salt lake City. We met up in Lewes, DE and had a wonderful time. It was so good to give her a big hug! We only had four hours, but we never stopped talking and covered a lot of ground! Well, we did stop talking when we were taking bites of our delicious fried flounder sandwiches at Striper Bites.
Lewes is a great little town and it is where I spent 3-4 weeks every summer until I was 15. Good memories. My grandparents rented a little cottage and now I wonder how we all fit into it. Nana spent most of her time in the kitchen. Every morning Pop got produce at the Nassau Market and then stopped for fresh fish on the docks. We kids spent all our time on the beach. I suppose we were supervised, but really cannot remember.
Today Barbara and I walked talked, talked and walked. It was just wonderful to see her face-to-face. She was my first friend when we moved to Shadow Lane in Chadds Ford, 30 years ago, and I knew right away we would be friends forever. We shared many "adventures" there, not the least of which was bringing up our young families. Good memories of Dairy Queen, searching for dry ice, planning parties and all that good stuff. Many discussions on the beach over the years. Oh, I just miss her so much! She has been such a rock for me these last years and writes the most beautiful thoughts in her e-mails.
Here we are in our younger days, in 2005 (before I went grey) when Laura and I visited Barbara in Salt Lake City. Forgot to get a photo today.....Love you, Barbara!
