A Patty and Lynnie Day!
Another wonderful day in the lives of Patty and Lynnie, two childhood friends since infancy...we used to play jacks, doll houses, Roy Rogers (me) and Dale Evans (Patty), ride bikes, roller skate, build forts in the empty corner lot, dress up, take drama lessons, ballet, double date, and stayed in touch when I moved to the Middle East...came back and Patty worked with me in my nursery school, talked on the phone over the years as we raised our kids living thirty miles from one another... and now Patty is retired, and I have Fridays OFF...so we still get together, have lunch, go to the art gallery, thrift stores and sit in the house and schmooze. It is just so great to have a friend like Patty. We have both "grown" so much over the years in so many wonderful ways. The older we get the better we get...just more evolved. Survived our divorces, illnesses, problems with kids, now both happily married and enjoying grandchildren and in Patty's case Great grandchildren and of course EACH OTHER. It just can't get any better than this!
