“Make new friends, but keep the old ones. One is silver and the other gold.” Three of us Gold friends are planning a get together. This friendship started about forty years ago in a (then) little place called, Buda, Texas. We were the young couples at the Manchaca United Methodist church. Yes, the 3 of us were the only ones with young children in that small church. Most were retired and others had teenagers.
We had a Mothers Morning out, at a larger church in Austin. So, thus started a long trip through diapers, husbands and the likes. Not any of us were the same age. However, we aren’t that far apart in age, either. Phyllis was the youngster. I was in the middle about three years older and Pat was the oldest being three years older than myself.
We’d go for coffee and then go shopping. Pat and Phyllis were into sewing. Not me, I had all boys. They had the girls. So as they shopped the aisles of the material and button stores. I went to TG&Y (also known as Turtles, girdles and yoyo’s)! They had a little bit of everything, which didn’t interest Pat and Phyllis!
Making this short, we’re having us a reunion soon. It will be interesting how our potty training and PTA have changed. I’ll put a stop to any and all talk of aches, pains and operations! We really don’t need to go there, do we?
P.S. According to “Grandpa’s country wisdom:” “Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you BOUNCE.”
