email or call the contact listed with CT.org. Tearing the clipping out of the newspaper I set it right between the kitchen phone and my charging cell phone. That way, I would remember to call first thing Monday morning.
I'd gone to the gym early on Wednesday and once home and in the kitchen I began stuffing my face as always...peanut butter and celery, carrots and veggie dip...while I made my "early" lunch. After all it was only 10:30 in the morning and I knew that I would be eating again around 1pm.
The phone rang and displayed a number from the State of CT. Once he introduced himself, I immediately thanked him for calling. We chatted about the upcoming events in June and what he would be doing for future events...the Nature Walk, a program on Ferns, the canoe paddle, a Fantasy Walk and the Dragonfly Identification Program. Even before he finished his list, I knew I was going to enjoy the Goodwin State Forest.
The next thing I knew, I received an email from him.
JP-nice taking with you today. I am officially inviting you to join my senior group on Thursday evening from 5:30-7:15 or so for a little senior “party” get together. Also I will have you put onto the Goodwin Listserve so that you will get all of our mailings. Cheers.

Enjoying life and those we meet is so easy, isn't it?
