Good friends...good times

We hit a record high today and even there wasn't even a struggle convicing Left Brain to put the air conditioning on - he started it up yesterday and we haven't turned it off since.  So stay cool and make sure to hydrate.  If you need to go out there, dress appropriately like this couple (not that's NOT us....we don't own a bike) and wear lots of sun protection.

It's been a whirlwind of fun catching up with everyone, most of it involving food of some sort.  But I guess that's what community is...breaking bread together.

I've been reflecting on how lucky I am to have been blessed with so many good friends and such a wild variety!  Each one is special in her own way and all are loved equally.

Today we convened at the Indian buffet place again and I was graced by the Divine Miss M, Wild and Wooly Karen, the Gardener Girl and She Who Lives By The C Shore.

After leaving the restraunt Miss M came with me to the Sip & Surf Laundrymat for continued conversation.  Now this was truly a first for me...we've done a lot of things together but hanging out amidst washers and dryers was a first.

I hauled my half dry clothes home with me to put up on the line before my friend Red Rose came out to see the RV.  Yup, I've become a washer woman that hangs out the laundry.  I was so excited to buy wooden clothespin and a clothespin bag today for just that purpose.

It was my honor to show her the rig and how we live and while sitting and talking I noticed it was going on 6:00.  Since I had put together a crock pot meal and it was ready we asked her to stay for supper so we could talk some more. 

I'm having a hard time believing that we must soon depart from all these incredible women in such a short time.  I'll miss them all dearly but carry them in my heart.

Long Live the Queen


  1. ALways a pleasure... I just wish it wasn't always so serious...


  2. It would be so nice to be as carefree as the couple riding the bike! What a wonderful picture! Hanging laundry out on a line can be very rewarding. The clothes smell so fresh when they are dry. I hung my laundry out on a clothesline up until five or six years ago. But now the birds have taken over my clothesline. You have a great night, hugs, Edna b.
