I am having one of those days when I feel very nostalgic.
I am blaming it all on Tina from Cherry Hill Cottage. She
posted the Bee Gee's You Should Be Dancing on her
Facebook wall and I was transported back to another place
Does that happen to you? I am sure I am not alone.
I think about other places and other days. I think of friends who
have somehow slipped away from my radar because I have
always had wanderlust and have lived everywhere. I have
old friends who have told me that they used up whole pages of
address books because I moved around so often.
A BFF of mine just slipped off my radar. I have tried to find
her via the internet but to no avail. Her name was Denise
McGrath and she was from Belfast Northern Ireland. We
were both living in the Middle East and we were inseparable.
Denise moved to London, and I went back to the states. We
saw each other in London when I went over for a visit one
summer and we picked our friendship right back up where
we left off. After my trip to England was over and I went
back home we stayed in touch via long distance calls. But
then my townhouse was hit by lightning and everything went
up in smoke including Denise's phone number and address.
I had to stay at a friend's house until I got settled once again
and by then I had a new number and address so I know she
could not find me either. She was engaged and planning to
be married so I know her name changed but to what???
Could not remember her fiancee's name and all I did
remember was that he was a barrister and that Denise had
rented a charming cottage in Henley-on-Thames. I am sure
she is long gone from that cottage.
So Denise ~ if by any chance you ever read this your old
pal Suzy would love to hear from you!
I hope I have not bored y'all too much. When I get in one
of these nostalgic moods I can just go on and on. I
inherited that trait from my grandmother. She just loved
talking about good times from the past.
Enjoy the rest of your afternoon. I am going back to painting
furniture in Mom's room. I am getting really excited about the
progress and am so anxious to show you what I have been
Bentley ~ don't sniff that paint can too closely or you
will get Provence Blue on your nose!
Big Texas Hugs,
