Imbeciles & Italian Sodas

 These are my very oldest friends, ever since I was a teeny, tiny girl. It is always so good to reconnect with Tam and Rob. 
Tam is expecting her first baby (a boy!) and Rob appears to be well on his way to stardom. In view of this fact, I endeavor to forget that he called me an imbecile. Which wasn't part of my vocabulary at the time, since we were perhaps oh, seven or so. It was very long ago, I should really try to forget it, but some things just stick in your memory, no?
Okay, maybe I am an imbecile. Clearly, I don't know how to look at the camera, like everyone else.

This photo was taken at a VERY happy event, the wedding of Johnny Gardner and Melissa Wright. I think it was Johnny who witnessed me getting trapped under the garage door in my ballet outfit. So he had this great view of me kicking in leotard and tights. The rear view, for that matter. And Melissa was my sister's best friend in high school. I regret that I did not get a picture of them... the night was full of fun, mingling, and Italian Sodas. But they both looked beautiful.

Oh happy day!

“We are friends and I do like to pass the day with you in serious and inconsequential chatter. I wouldn't mind washing up beside you, dusting beside you, reading the back half of the paper while you read the front. We are friends and I would miss you, do miss you and think of you very often.”

Such cute photos! And the incidence of coincidence here is that one of my oldest friends is named Jeanette, just like the quote's author. :)

You have such an eye for incidences... I like that.

O! Congratulations, Tammy! I don't know why it is, but I've always, always remembered and liked Tammy. Please tell her I said "Hello!" Thanks, Tiff!
