Sharing meals with Friends

Upper Deerfield Twp,  NJ

We are still driveway camping at daughter's house.  Len is still working on the playhouse.  The house and trim are painted.   We still have to stain the porch.  He is out there now prepping and taping.

Last Saturday night we were invited to share dinner with dear friends from the church we attended some years ago and were married in.

On Wednesday I had lunch with two old friends.   Lois was my very first friend.   I've known her since I was about 3 or 4.   I met Carolyn when our children went to school together.   At one point years ago the three of us worked together and always enjoy our times getting caught up with each others lives.

While in my professional life I attended monthly meetings of the Human Resource Association of Southern  NJ.  Many years ago I was it's president.   I have not attended a meeting for almost 3 years.   As a dear friend, Jonathan Segal from the law firm of Duane Morris in Philadelphia was the speaker, I decided to attend last night  (no pictures).  My daughter Terri is now a member.   It was so rewarding seeing many old friends.    And I must say - I sure don't miss the daily frustrations and aggravation that comes with working in HR!  Although at one time I loved it!   I now question my sanity.

That brings us up to today.  Later today we might pick up my brothers car carrier and get this building loaded and ready to move.

It is so nice to meet old friends. I left NJ over 36yrs ago and as far as I know none of my old friends live there anymore either.
Glad you had such a wonderful time.

So glad you are having a good time! We're heading to Tampa - and then across the gulf states to TX for the winter. I will be updating the blog, so keep in touch - oh yeah, if you get close to Hondo, let us know - we'll put a light on for ya!
