Warning: Mushy Post!

The next week is going to be very busy for us, so you won't be hearing from me much. We'll be welcoming some friends into our home, and traveling to Colorado for a wedding after that.

Stinky doesn't have a blog anymore, but you may remember her from some time back. She still comments though. Stinky's been my friend since about 1976, and is getting married to her beloved Jermy this Saturday!

Of all the people from school days, she has probably been far away as much as anyone else, yet it was the easiest to keep in touch with her simply because we've always had that connection that never misses a beat. You know, the kind where you just pick up the conversation like the years and the miles haven't been in between at all.

One vacation we camped all over Colorado. We'd set up our campsite every night, look out at the mountains and say "It just don't get no better than this!" And then we'd say "We don't need no stinkin' BOYS!" Well, now we both have our stinkin' boys. And, metaphorically speaking, it's really NICE to have someone else to help haul all that gear up the mountain after all.

Congratulations, my friend - I'm looking forward to celebrating your wedding with you and your man and your family. I love you and wish you the very very best!

(gosh, now what am I going to write in your CARD!? gah!)

In honor of the upcoming wedding I'd like to propose a Poem by David Whyte.

Have a good week, y'all.


  • Awwww WOW. Thanks fer dat.
    I must, in turn, thank you for the person that you are and for the friendship that we share. When I look deep inside of me, I see lots of you, and that's such a good thing. No matter where, no matter how far, no matter how long, I'll always have our laughter ringing in the corners of my soul, and what a great gift!
    So -- now I don't have to write you a thankyou card either!!
    Safe travels, I can't wait to have the 3 of you here!! Rug burns, Stinky

  • Awww, such sweet sentiments! I love the poem too. There is another one of his that I really like called Loaves and Fishes. I am going back to check out the link and read the other poems. You have a great trip and enjoy the wedding.

  • Have a great time, Wow. And congrats, Stinky! Can't wait to see the pics taken with the Captain's zoom lens!

    Hey, you could do a whole new "what is it" series based on the wedding...

  • Hey mommy

    You had better be taking care of yourself. Weddings can be fun but don't make it too fun.

    Take Care

  • Old close friends are just so comfortable!

    Drink lots of water on the plane, get up once in a while, take a bottled water with you and a snack... hard to come by food on the plane. I hate to see a pregnant woman on her hands and knees looking for some kids dropped raisin from 50 flights ago! Have Amazing Man put the luggage in the overhead and let him get it from the baggage claim. Wear your seatbelt! Be safe!

  • what a great poem, thanks for sharing that. There is no friend, like an old friend, as the saying goes....and old friends are like our most comfortable shoes or a fav sweatshirt....they always fit, no matter what. Well, unless you are p.g., but that's different.......have a great trip.
