We had a visit from my oldest (as in, I’ve known her since kindergarten) friend, Barbara (DeCamp) Hammach and her husband Bill and very cool teenaged kids, Jamie and Libby. They live in Chicago and I hadn’t seen them in 7 years. Too long! Here we are (with one of John’s art photographs behind us). Barb and I used to set up obstacles in her back yard and jump over them, neighing, pretending we were horses. We had fairs in my yard, giving the neighborhood kids wheelbarrow rides, etc, to make money for the cancer society. And most notably, I dared her to drink sand, which she did. It wasn’t pretty!
We were Brownies together, got in trouble together, dated the same guy (not at the same time, though). Wow, was he a jerk. We also saw the Beatles together in Atlantic City, 1964. We remember everything differently, though, which doesn’t bode well for the memoir I’m writing. LOL.
Isn’t it great to have old friends?
