Good TImes



Call Buddy, I said.

And so he did.   And so the three of us sat on the stoop of the shed and had a drink.  Well, actually we had more than one.  To tell you the truth, we had two pitchers of thirst quenching Frozen Margaritas.  As usual, the trading of stories began.  Stories about him living in West Virginia, stories about some of folks out there, stories about folks around here, stories about folks to stay away from who would kill you without blinking an eye!

  Then the subject of our moving was brought up.  Feeling the tears well up in my eyes, I changed the subject immediately and moved on to yet another topic.  Both the Pres and I will miss the stoop of the shed and Buddy A LOT.

  2. You may not have Buddy at your new place, but friendly people like you can make new buddies anywhere.

  3. Leaving behind friends is the worst. You will find other friendships for sure and if Buddy is able, think of the fun it would be to have him as a guest at your new home.

  6. Sounds like a good time - but being the devil's advocate - it is okay to cry - it'll be sad - you'll deal with it - and find many new friends. It will be sad.

    LOVE YOU! sandie

  7. Sounds like a fun, but bittersweet evening. I'm glad you blogged about it so we could share the experience with you. And I hope you find a new "Buddy" when you move.

  9. Oh, that post made me sad. I've lived in my house my entire life. I don't know what I'll do when I have to move.

    You'll meet another Buddy, but will always love the Buddy from your current place...
    Moving will be hard, but on to new adventures!

  13. It sounds like a fun evening but leaving behind friends is the worst part of moving house. I'm sure you'll keep in touch with old friends and soon make many new ones.
