Last week, I actually went into a restaurant, to sit at a table ,with a friend ,order and eat. I met a new friend at the community center's mah Jongg group. We two are
complete opposites. She is tall. I am not. She is an imposing figure. I look more fragile. She is a veteran. I didn't know until my adulthood, that women had careers in the military. She rescues cats. I seem to rescue dogs. She is divorced. I was married for
65 years. She has one child. I have 4. We both agree politically and we both play Mah Jongg. I guess that is enough to base a friendship on.
