When most people read this they will be thinking, 50th wedding anniversary. Well, not for this blogger! I am celebrating my 50th anniversary with my best friend Patsy. We met when I was 8 and she was 7, almost 8. Yes, that tells you my age, but at this stage of life, I love being able to say I am one year older.
We are celebrating in Washington State, where she lives. There will be lots of pictures to share of our party. I am so excited, this is honestly the only 50th anniversary that I will ever have. Having been married more than once, and my current marriage heading for it’s 18th year, myself and my husband would have to live a LONG time to have 50 years. We are both so excited! My sister Elizabeth will be a part of all this too because we all met on the same day, in my front yard.
My dad gave us a cardboard box to play with while he and my mother were moving things in the house. And there came Patsy and her sister Ginger, our next door neighbors. We introduced ourselves, and then all four of us climbed in that cardboard box and pretended to be riding a stage coach to who knows where. That was the beginning of the best friendship I have ever had.
We’ve never stopped being friends. We don’t live in the same state any more, but that doesn’t matter. We’ve never lost contact, we may not have talked every day but we did talk. And with the advent of the Internet and texting …. wow keeping in contact is so much easier. We don’t have long distance phone calls to pay for, although snail mail is still a lot of fun! It will be a while before I can get back to this blog to post pictures, but they will be here! So, for those who follow, stay tuned. Well, as tuned as you can considering how often I am able to get to this!
Still trying to figure out WordPress, how to get things into the right categories and so on. God Bless you all, Baruch HaShem Adonai!!
