Keep the Old

Last year when my high school friends & I turned 60, we gathered near our hometown for a reunion.  I met Denise & Liz at Deep Creek later in the summer for lunch, then looked up my life long friend Linda when attending a scrapbook convention in Lancaster.  Buddy welcomed Bob & I both at his Houston home when I was there for FNCE.  It was like old times, so easy to relate and share.  2013

I also got to spend quite a bit of time with my friend Debbie when here brother was hospitalized at the Medical Center where I work.  Debbie and her husband Jon joined me for lunch one day at HSC.  Debbie's brother was terminally ill, so it was a sad time (no pictures)  yet good for all of us to spend time together.

The title is from the verse, "Make new friends but keep the old.  One is silver, the other gold".  

Have a great week.
