I am so excited, I am so excited... I just got a phone call from an old girlfriend of mine...I mean OLD girlfriend. We went to school together and we've been friends for nearly 60 years! SIXTY YEARS!!!

We seldom saw one another or even talked on the phone yet once in awhile, one of us or the other just started thinking of the other one and call only to find out that the other one had been thinking of the other one. Ok...hope that makes sense...

So anyway...the last time we talked, she said her and her husband was thinking of moving down to a town just 9 miles from me and that's the last time we talked. I've been thinking of her for probably 3 weeks now but haven't taken the time to call her. I was gonna call her this morning but I was waiting on a call from the doctor's office (which never came ).

Then tonight she called me! Imagine my utter surprise when she tells me they have moved HERE!!! We are practically neighbors... I'm sooooo excited

As kids, we were best friends. When my family was relocated with Dad's job when I was 16, she went on to graduate and our lives went separate directions but we stayed in touch although rather haphazardly.

After I moved away, I already had a daughter then I married and had another daughter. She eventually had 2 kids and wasn't married and still living at home.

I remember one night, I went to bed, fell asleep and then I heard someone frantically calling my name. (my husband worked third shift) I was using a bedroom just to the left of the outside door to the porch. I got up, turned on the porch light but no one was there so I figured I must've been dreaming yet it seemed so real.

I no more got back to sleep when there was knocking on my door. I turned the porch light on and there stood my girlfriend. She'd had a fight with her folks over the kids and came running to me, thinking "Bonnie will help me!" over and over. I know I heard her distress. It's been like that for us ever since then.

We've never entirely lost track of each other. She's lived in the same place for years but every time I moved, I contacted her to let her know where I was. Now she's practically down the street from me and...I'm so excited!!!

I'm not sure how Susie is gonna take this bit of news... I really don't care. She's been determined to stay friends with her ex ever since I moved here and it didn't matter to her how I felt about it until I finally just caved in and said to hell with it. So now, she can damn well have her ex! I have someone to spend some time with and shoot the shit with, too and if she doesn't like it then tough shit!

But truthfully, I don't think she'll mind. It might momentairly throw her for a loop but she may be glad that I have someone else to spend time with. Maybe she'd like a little free time, too. We've been doing pretty good lately so hopefully our 'rough patches' are history.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this good news with my bloggin' friends. Life's lookin' up for me and it's about damned time...

It's time to say good night...ya'll have a good week, be safe 'n keep smilin'...

That is SO great!!!!! I talk about my best girl friend, we've been like sisters for about 30 years...and we're still in touch, we talk on the phone, instant messenger, ever face book.

Susie will be fine....just have that feeling.

Awwww thanks DC. Life just holds surprises and sometimes they are somewhat life changing. I needed a friend of my own and now here she is! I have to think God's hand is in this. My friend's husband is 10 yrs. older than she is and his health isn't good so maybe there move here was orchestrated by an unseen hand because one of these days we will need each other. Thanks again for your comment.
