We’ve been enjoying spoiling, er, visiting with our granddaughters here in Missouri. It’s what grandparents are supposed to do and we are working hard to live up to that ideal. The girls have been having a blast visiting us at the campground, riding their bikes, playing at the playground and the mini golf course. We had to re-energize them with some ice cream.
I had a chance to reconnect with a good friend from high school, who lives near St. Louis. Brian and I had attended classes together and spent lots of out of school time riding our motorcycles. But, as has happened to many of us, time caused us to lose contact.
That changed when I, by chance, happened on his page on Linkedin, a sort of “Facebook” for business professionals. I sent him an email and we soon were corresponding and looking forward to getting together when Marti and I came up to Missouri.
Last night, we met at a nice restaurant and caught up. It was 41 years since we last saw each other.
He retired from the U.S. Air Force after a career as a pilot and now works for a major aircraft manufacturer. We had a great time sharing about our lives and careers over the years. It was a great reconnection. Marti and I also got to meet Brian’s special lady, Michelle.
A nice evening which went by too fast. We’ll be looking forward to getting together again the next time we are up in Missouri.
Just another little thing we love about our RV travels, we get to go places and enjoy the company of good friends and pick up as if 41 years was just yesterday.
Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
