M.E. Monday is upon us again so go by Vicki’s blog over at Cherry Chick and check out all of our entries. If you haven’t joined in on the fun, please do. Trust me, you won’t regret it! This week I am focusing on my friend, Weezie, in North Carolina. I drove to see her last week after a 2 year hiatus, and we had the best time. By the way, a real miracle took place today as I was preparing this post. I have been using Vicki’s blinking M.E. heart for ages, but it would never blink for me no matter what I did. All I can say is, the blinker must have known just how much I was missing my Weezie, and it decided to start blinking in her honor. Miracles happen at the strangest times and places and when you least expect them. I am so happy the heart is finally blinking! Below is a little M.E. ceramic picture I gave her years ago, and it continues to sit in her kitties right where she drinks her tea and watches her little TV. There are no words to express what dear friends we have been for 40+ years so I won’t even try. I think you all have already figured it out.
The two of us love this banner, and it always hangs in a prominent place whenever we are together. Someone else might have considered the love our two families had for one another as being dysfunctional, but for us it was “normal!" There were seven children total, 5 boys and 2 girls, and basically, 4 parents. There were no baby-sitters or house-sitters....we always looked after one another. We carpooled, ate together, played together, vacationed together, traveled together.....it was just the best of the best. We lived across the street from one another for 18 years, and it was a WONDERFUL time for all of us...many, many happy memories for the two of us ...and all of our children...to reflect back upon as we all age.
Please excuse the quality of this picture, but my printer is about out of ink. If you all could have seen Weezie and me trying to get the silly camera set up on the dining room table at just the correct height to take our photo on time delay you would have cracked up. We did it at least 10 times having to shift the camera to the right and then the left or put another book under it. I am going to have a “real” picture made from it for my “Pals" frame, but I can’t get it done in time for Vicki’s M.E. Monday Post at 8:00 tonight. Sorry about that...but I did get my post up on time! As I say every week at this time....Happy M.E. Monday to all of you.
