On the 12 Days of Vacation…My Girlfriend Said to Me…

Let’s go to lunch!  Of course, I said YES!

"Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read."  -Francis Bacon

From reading this blog, my old high school friend, Kay, knew that I was available for lunch this week!  Catching up with a high school friend is a great way to refresh and get mentally healthy!  We had not sat down together in years. We had a wonderful time.  Old friends are like a comfortable pair of shoes…they just fit and feel right!  I was a little nervous about taking my new eating plan out to lunch on the third day, but all went well!!

While I was out, I stopped by my favorite consignment boutique, Garment Exchange.  She has some fabulous items…if you are in San Antonio and a foot size, 7 1/2….you need to get over there.  Incredible shoes!  Also, she needs more for her men’s department! You can make money!  Tell Marilyn I sent you by or call her at 820-3000.

          Have a wonderful summer weekend!  Maybe it’s time to meet up with an old friend!

  4. Great post! I have been enjoying the company of two friends from high school. We hadn't spent any time together since graduation. It has been wonderful!

  5. It WAS wonderful! You are so right - there is nothing like an old friend - that knows what you were like way back when! I so enjoyed it - let's do it again! :)
