What a pleasant surprise - early this morning I got a phone call from my childhood best friend. He was in the area and asked if it was OK to stop by. "Of course!" Our parents were best friends, and lived about a mile from one another. We grew up together and became constant companions exploring the Sourland Mts and Raritan rivers, riding our bikes all over the place, double dating, working on local farms together - good times for sure. Long time friends fit like well worn clothes - a sentence or two and you are right back where you left off. Life is good. Every now and then a trip down memory lane is rejuvenating.
