Still Crazy After All These Years

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

I just had the most amazing 4 day weekend with the most beautiful people you can ever imagine. We went to high school together in Germany 30 years ago and for most of us this is the first time we've seen each other since. We laughed so hard our stomachs hurt the next day and cried when we parted - after about 5 minutes it was like we were never apart. The guys turned 16 again and the girls never looked better, truly gorgeous! Promises were made to never let 30 years go by without getting together again. Next year: Nags Head, NC in July! I miss them all already.

My traveling sisters Susan & Jamie - I love you both!



Susan, me, Nicole and Laura - just stunning those 3 are!
We all came together to celebrate the marriage of my sweet friend Lorraine and Lynn, they were married in the UK where they now live.




Bobby & Colonel standing by their accomodations "The Great White Whale", Brian also slept in the belly of that whale much to the chagrin of his aching back after one night. The girls of course stayed in the comfort of the local Quality Inn!Jamie & Colonel at the boardwalk
                   Just amazing - I get misty eyed putting up this post! Until next year my beautiful friends XOX

I nearly fell of my chair when I read your comment, Susan. Please file the word "genuine" in the back of your mind - you'll see what I mean soon.
Love you back XOX
