The past two weeks included stopovers with several old friends in various friendly places in Florida. Our homes were in two Elks lodges, a beach resort and now at a casino near Miami. Reminiscing and sharing new experiences with these folks is good for the soul.
We've tried to cross paths with these folks this summer without success. It's been about two years since we shared walks, talks and more in the deserts of the southwest. What a group! We can always count on sharing good stories, laughs, food, drink and advice. For instance, how about escargot stuffed mushrooms for lunch courtesy of Mary and Elaine? Or Nancy's double chocolate brownies? Or Elaine's guidance on the local thrift stores? Or Bob's assistance with our fridge? There's never any lack of stimulating conversation and smiles while around this group.
