Well, last week we ran away as just the two of us.
This past weekend, we ran away with Friends.
Old Friends. The Best kind.
We’ve been buddies with Randy & Beth since our girls
were toddlers… back to the time when you had to wait
for film to be developed… long before anyone heard of a blog.
About twenty years. Two decades.
Both our families had a Favorite Place to Be.
But we hadn’t Been there together…
Our first glimpse was exciting…
We had to refrain ourselves from shouting “WhooHoo!”
and running wildly down the street. So instead we dined
at Chowning’s and stopped at Charleton’s Coffee House
and tested out their Chocolate.
Yum. We bought some to take home.
We took long walks…
…down paths that our forefathers may have taken…
We saw Grand Palaces…
and abodes for those of the Middling Sort.
The guys talked about everything…
and we even came up with a possible
cure for America’s current political problems…
No. Really. We wouldn’t do THAT.
But we definitely laughed a LOT.
Empty Nesters! The Freys and the Bakers heartily recommend
a weekend away with old and dear friends. You will have fun,
make new memories, and feel young again.
And you will really get a kick out of it
when your kids text to check on you!
Old friends, after all of these years,
Old friends, through the laughter and tears,
Old friends, What a priceless treasure!
