ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec. 23

I am meeting my  "once a year friend" for lunch. So many years ago, we taught together. Ever since we moved to Florida, and it has been almost 16 years , we meet once a year , when she and her husband pass through Sarasota, on their way to a family gathering, at Christmas time. ( Is  four commas too many in a sentence? Asking for a friend.) We pick up the conversation pretty much where we left off , the year before. That is what friends do. I only have a few friends from my old life. Those are the ones who knew Bob. It is comforting to have kept up this friendship. Too bad it only comes once a year and she has to come from such a great distance just to have lunch with me. But I love it. Thanks JB.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
