Friends and on the road again

In 1979, John and I lived in Wading River, NY (Long Island) for 8 months. John was working at a local power plant. During that time, we became friends with Dennis and Barb. Dennis worked at that same power plant. We kept in touch for a few years after that, but basically we lost contact with them.

This weekend, Dennis and Barb, who live in Illinois, stopped by in their Scamp camper. I couldn’t remember half of the things everyone was “remembering”, but even so, it sure didn’t seem like it had been 25 years since we had seen each other. Amazing how you can just pick up where you left off with friends.

Early tomorrow morning my trusty road partner and I are hitting the highways to head back to Florida for a couple of weeks. I have some doctors’ appointments that I need to follow up with, and I have to figure out what to do about our swimming pool. I am worried that I will miss some important autumnal changes, so I’m not planning on staying in Florida any longer than is necessary. Hopefully the drive will be uneventful!

You'll see plenty of autumnal changes along the way. The leaves are seriously turning here. Perhaps in two weeks they will all be fallen. Have a safe and fun trip and I hope all those check ups go well for you.
