Longtime - NOT OLD - Friends!

We have just returned from a fabulous Christmas trip to be with the Lindahl side of the family and I will be blogging about those great times very soon. However, as I lived in New Jersey from 7th through 12th grade, I wanted to see my dear friends - Sandi and Ray - from those happy, carefree days of yore. Before all the Lindahls arrived from various parts of the country, Wes and I were able to steal away on a gray, rainy afternoon and meet Sandi and Ray in our hotel. The hours flew by and the laughter so brightened our day!
Yep, our prom dates in 1973 are long gone. But Sandi and I have found great husbands; each of us have been married to our sweethearts for over 30 years!
Sandi and I have kept in touch through the years, and have seen each other every five years or so. We have laughed over memories of boyfriends, countless sleepovers, classmates, and even recalled the time when we borrowed Sandi's boyfriend's car (he was a young substitute teacher...can you believe that??) and took a "break" during school hours with that car. She caught me up with many people we went to school with at good 'ol Roxbury High. And now, Sandi and I are both mothers of married children...potential Grandmothers. Where did the years fly by?
I really really wish I could've found a way to get this short video clip vertical instead of horizontal. This may give you just a bit of insight into the goofy, fun friendship Sandi and I have had! We got into a lot of "situations" but laughed ourselves into them and out of them!

I love your love of life Deb. It is truly inspirational.

This video is wonderful, even if it's sideways!

Longtime friends are the best friends. I don't know what I would do without my Audrey. I also don't know what I would do if she ever leaked the stories we've agreed will stay in our respective pasts... :)

Deb ... you REALLY made my holiday! I loved seeing you and Wes. I treasure our memories and ability to catch up with each other. Your ability to be spontaneous is one I admire. Love you lots!
