We play a game called Spite and Malice, such a wicked game for old friends who love each other as we do, but it's fun and we had a lot of laughs.
Our history includes her being my roommate in a shared rental house where I was in charge of killing bugs and she took care of any mice that showed up. We traveled together to places like Ashland, Oregon/Shakespeare Festival (the weekend before my first date with DH); Hawaii before I knew DH, and Israel and Paris, France the same year DH moved in with us both.
Donna told me tonight she will be back up to visit her family for Thanksgiving and just maybe she'll be able to pop in again here the day after when my family will be visiting. I sure hope so. My daughter was ten years old and used to lay on Donna's bed when Donna did her hair in the morning before going to work. Yes, the same daughter who has the six year old twins today! It would be fun if we could all be together again. Last time they saw each other was at my daughter's wedding about nine years ago.
